Dodge Ram Parade World Record
Sure, Texas might be the pickup truck capital of the world, but the world record for the longest pickup truck parade was recently set at the Nürburgring in Nürburg, Germany, where 1,152 Dodge Ram pickup trucks filed into the ring and made their way around the track to set a new world record. Pretty cool if you ask us, and even more impressive is the fact that it was in Germany where pickup trucks are not nearly as common as they are here in the states.  Check out some photos from the world record setting event with Ram trucks.

Hemet Huckfest
People tend to do dumb things when they have an audience, whether it’s behind the wheel of a side-by-side, Jeep, truck or pre-runner. We’re betting this guy wishes he hadn’t brought his daily driver to the Hemet Huckfest… but for entertainment’s sake, we’re sorta glad he did.

You couldn’t walk more than 5 feet at this year’s SEMA Show without seeing or bumping into a truck. Trucks greeted SEMA Show attendees at hall entrances, and the edges of each side of the convention center, and they were pretty much everywhere you looked.

We already highlight some of the bro-dozers at this year’s show in the 7 Trucks That Will Never See Dirt, but this was another batch of rigs that caught our eye for one reason or another. Check out these cool trucks we captured at this year’s show.

U.S. sales of mid-size pickup trucks jumped 54 percent in September 2016 to nearly 40,000 units.

While massive year-over-year increases in pickup truck sales can often be attributed to commensurate increases in incentives, as seen with the Ram P/U’s victory over the Chevrolet Silverado in September, mid-size pickup truck buyers are willing to pay big bucks.

Average transaction prices in the Toyota Tacoma-controlled midsize pickup truck segment last month, according to Kelley Blue Book, rose 6 percent compared with September 2015. That was by far the biggest increase for any segment in average transaction prices.
