Honda Courts Suspense With Next-Gen Ridgeline Teaser

NextGenHondaRidgelineTeaser

Like the Master of Suspense stepping into his own silhouette in an episode of "Alfred Hitchcock Presents," the shadowy outline of the just-announced next-gen Honda Ridgeline in a teaser image is intended to titillate the audience for what comes next. Honda seems to be going out of its way to generate suspense over the redesign of the midsize pickup, offering no info about size or capabilities, and saying cryptically that it will arrive sometime in "the next two years," possibly after the scheduled mid-2014 end of the current generation's production run.

Pickup truck buyers who aren't interested in full-size trucks need more choices and Chevrolet's new Colorado should prove to be a compelling option, says PickupTrucks.com editor Mark Williams. The new-for-2015 truck is a combination of GM's best designs and solutions from the 2014 Silverado 1500 and the heavier-duty new global Holden Colorado, Williams says.

GM will unveil the all-new 2015 Chevrolet Colorado this week at the 2013 Los Angeles Auto Show. For the rest of Williams' in-depth report on the new Colorado, go to PickupTrucks.com.

2014 Chevrolet Silverado: Real-World Mileage

Silveradompg

Chevrolet overhauled its half-ton Silverado for the 2014 model year, bringing with it a green punch thanks to the impressive EPA ratings for both its six- and eight-cylinder models.

At its introduction, the Bow-Tie brand threw a risky ball in Ford's court, claiming its 5.3-liter V-8 Silverado is more efficient than the Blue Oval's famed 3.5-liter EcoBoost six-cylinder in its best-selling F-150.

On a recent PickupTrucks.com Challenge, we gathered numbers proving GM's new half-ton twins are greener — even when towing. Engineers added fuel-saving technology to the EcoTec3 5.3-liter V-8 such as active fuel management, which shuts down four of the eight cylinders under light driving; direct injection; and variable valve timing.

We recently tested a 2014 Silverado at our Chicago headquarters and had the opportunity to once again see how it fared in the real world.

Most-Watched Videos of the Week

An old stalwart was the lone newcomer this week to our list of most-watched videos. Cars.com reviewer David Thomas' critique of the 2014 Ford Mustang GT convertible tore straight to the top with the top down, braking only for the No. 1 spot. Although the Mustang GT hasn't changed much for several years, Thomas says that stripped-down, muscled-up, gas-guzzling bravado is only a bad thing if you didn't care for the "retro ride" in the first place.
