The classic Christmas film It’s a Wonderful Life is widely beloved today, but did you know that it was met with only faint critical praise when it was released in time for the holidays in 1946? The Frank Capra-directed story about a family man fallen on hard times underperformed at the box office, and would not be recognized as a serious work of cinematic art until decades later. Fans of the film will be glad to hear that It’s a Wonderful Life now ranks high on the American Film Institute’s (AFI’s) 100 Years, 100 Movies list.

2006 Dodge Rampage Concept

Ram hasn’t yet released any teaser images of the new Ram Dakota, but it’s certain to be a more conventional looking pickup than the 2006 Dodge Rampage Concept shown here.

Having sold more than 700,000 vehicles in the 2019 calendar year, Fiat Chrysler Automobiles’ Ram truck brand has suddenly become the eighth best-selling nameplate in the U.S. Though the Ram line includes a pair of commercial vans, most of that sales volume comes from full-size pickup trucks.  In fact, the big truck news for 2019 was Ram overtaking Chevrolet in large pickup truck sales for the first time ever.

2021 Ram 1500 TRX

Consumer Guide Automotive By Don Sikora II

After packing a sizable collection of facemasks and two squeeze bottles of hand sanitizer, we set off to drive Ram’s new off-road-ready TRX pickup at a socially distanced event near Lake Tahoe. Clearly, most of us would love to forget 2020, but if you are into high-performance off-road trucks, the 2021 Ram 1500 TRX will definitely fall into the category of things you’ll be happy to remember.

2020 Toyota Tundra 1974 Edition

2020 Toyota Tundra 1794 Edition

There is magic in the Toyota name, and in the brand’s fanbase. Though the Tundra has not been fully redesigned since the 2007 model year, the full-size pickup generally sees better than 100,000 sales annually. And while that may seem like chicken feed when compared to the 800,000 sales Ford’s best-selling F-Series trucks boast, it is roughly 400 percent better than the Nissan Titan–which was redesigned for 2017 and refreshed for 2020–is expected to show this year. The Tundra’s sales numbers are quite impressive for a truck that has gone without a from-the-ground-up redesign for so long.
