Transcript: Badass offroad trucks are basically our favorite thing at 4WheelOnline, so when Ram revealed their Rebel TRX Concept we got excited. It was clear that this concept was meant to be a Raptor Killer, but can it dethrone the king of all factory off road trucks? In this week’s news refresh we’re going to compare the Rebel TRX to the Raptor Supercrew in 7 categories to find out which is the ultimate off road truck. Hey guys, Ken here with 4WheelOnline. Before we get started, you should subscribe! We’ll be at SEMA in a few weeks to show you the coolest custom Trucks and Jeeps, and you definitely don’t want to miss out on our coverage. So let’s get started. Our first category is going to be tires. Both come with quality tires. The Raptor has 34.5” BFGoodrich All Terrain T/A KO2 tires, while the Rebel TRX has 37” Toyo Open Country M/T’s. It also comes with 2 spares in the bed, because 1 is none and 2 is 1. So the Rebel gets the Win. Suspension is another key component of off roading. The Raptor comes with 3-inch Fox Racing Shocks front and rear, with an independent front and leaf springs in the rear. Similarly, the Rebel TRX has 2.5” king bypass shocks and independent front suspension but uses coils instead of leaves. Both also have about 13 inches of travel, so we’re calling the suspension a draw. Next up is the Approach and Departure angles. The Raptor is the loser in this category with a 30.2° approach and 21.8° Departure angle. This is easily beaten by the Rebel TRX’s 36.5° approach and 25.6° departure angle. The breakover angle is where things get a little bit tricky. The Raptor’s breakover is 21.8° but Ram doesn’t list the breakover. Based on the Rebel’s 3.5” shorter wheelbase and ¼ inch higher ground clearance we’re giving the Rebel TRX the W for this one. The transmissions on these trucks seem to be a touchy subject. People love manual transmissions, and we’ll love them forever. The feeling of control from a manual transmission can’t be topped, but both of these trucks are automatic only. And because of that we’re giving the Raptor the win for it’s 10 speed vs the Rebel TRX’s 8 speed. Now let’s talk about the engines! The Raptor has a 3.5L EcoBoost V6. And if you think that seems puny, just remember, the ecoboost is a twin turbo engine that makes 450 hp and 510 lb-ft of torque and it’s the same engine, with a few tweaks, as the new GT and that makes over 600hp. The Ford EcoBoost engines are some of the best out there, even if it is only a v6. But unfortunately, they are outclassed by the Rebel TRX’s 575 hp 6.2L supercharged V8, which is technically a hellcat, but Ram doesn’t really want to call it that. The reason? Well, it’s tuned differently and is mated with a completely different transmission than the other models bearing the hellcat name. Unfortunately they haven’t revealed the torque numbers which is highly disappointing. And the final category is looks! Neither look as horrible as the Chevy Reaper, we’ll call this one a draw So the Rebel TRX is the winner, with four wins, two draws and one loss. Oh wait! We forgot one very important category, the one that truly decides which truck is better. Which truck can you go out and buy? Since the Rebel TRX is just a concept, the overall win for best factory off road truck goes to the 2017 Ford Raptor. But if you had the opportunity to buy one, which truck would you want?

Ever wondered just how "real" Chevy's real people commercials are? Wonder no more! The AV Club interviewed one of them and turns out it's super awkward.

Some hate them, some just dislike them, and let’s be honest, no one actually likes them. Except for Chevy. They love them. One of those real people has spoken to the AV Club and talked about just how awkward it was to talk to this guy. Hey guys, Ken here with 4 Wheel Online and welcome to your news refresh. If you’re a subscriber then you know we did a video about Chevy commercials last year. Keep up with all our videos by hitting that bell button so you can be notified when we upload new videos! The AV Club may be owned by The Onion, but this ain’t fake news. An anonymous “real person” spoke to the website about his experience and why he thinks the real people were just hamming it up for the cameras. This person was approached as he was walking down the street and was asked if he would like to participate in paid market research. He was offered $200 and asked a few questions about his history with cars, though nothing about Chevy or filming a commercial specifically. When he showed up at the L.A. convention center he realized this wasn’t normal market research where you sit in a board room and talk about a product while executives sit behind a one-way mirror. That wasn’t the only thing throwing him off, he also noted that the AVN awards were happening at the same time in the convention center. And if you don’t know what that is, google it. at home. in your browser's private mode. So he waits around for about an hour in an empty, dark convention hall. Eventually, his group of 4 walks through a door and onto the set and the awkwardness just ramps up another notch. Here’s what he had to say, “it was weird because, once we got in there, he didn’t tell us where to stand or anything. He didn’t point at anything. We just magically got in that line of four people horizontally right in front of him. It was like they had this weird power.” He said that no one seemed too excited while they were waiting but once the lights and cameras were on them, “it was like magically everyone was the world’s biggest Chevrolet fan” Plus the way they were asking questions made it really hard to say, “Yeah, I really don’t drive a Chevy. I drive a Toyota, and I’ve never had a problem.” He stressed that no one seemed like actors, but when asked, “What’s the first word that comes to your mind when you think about Chevy?” the guy next to him said “Freedom” and the others just kept using buzzwords. They weren’t going to say “bullshit” because you’re getting paid and have cameras pointed at you. If you were asked that question, what would your answer be? Let us know in the comments! The whole experience was pretty awkward according to the anonymous source, but he said the most cringe-inducing part was “When that wall opened, it was the loudest, most awkward and slow-moving thing I’ve ever experienced in my life. It just sounded like loud mechanical noise. This guy just stood there through the awkward silence and smiled at us, completely unfazed. In the article he says, “I was literally freaking out because I couldn’t believe that they were spending all this money” Despite the amount of money put into filming, they never retook a take. Everyone wanted to say positive things because “You didn’t want to see this guy stop smiling. It was really bizarre.” Overall it seems these commercials are actually “real people, not actors” but heavily edited and put in positions to give the answers Chevy wants. How does this change your view of the commercials? Let us know in the comments! Until next time, I'm Ken with 4 Wheel Online and you’ve just been refreshed. Oh, and one tip here for you. If you sign a Non-Disclosure Agreement, don’t break it. This guy, although anonymous, totally gave himself away if you watch the commercial and read the full article.
We put the high end MUSCLE CARS from Dodge, Ford, and Chevy head to head to head to see who can take the title of the best muscle car in America! Dodge brings the Challenger SRT Hellcat to the table. Chevrolet is fighting with the Camaro ZL1 and the Camaro Z/28. Ford recently announced their Shelby GT350 with it's flat plane crankshaft. Transcript : Hi guys, It’s Rylan with this week’s News Refresh. Since the introduction of the Ford Mustang in 1964, three American companies have been battling to build the best muscle car in America. Ford, Chevy, and Dodge. And now, all 3 have contenders in the high-end muscle car segment. But which one will take the title for best muscle car? Let’s find out. Intro First on the track is the Camaro ZL1. With 580 horsepower on tap, it’s Chevy’s most powerful Camaro ever made. Pop the hood and you’ll find a 6.2L Supercharged V8 with 556 lb. ft. of torque and a fuel economy rating of - cut to Camaro on the track The ZL1 hits a 0-60 time of 3.9 seconds, a 12 second quarter mile, and a top speed of 184 mph! And with a price tag of $55,505 the Camaro is comfortably in the middle of the two other options. Taking on the ZL1 is the Dodge Challenger SRT HELLCAT. It’s also got a Supercharged 6.2L V8, except the HEMI produces 707 horsepower and 650 lb/ft of torque. Making Dodge the undeniable king of the horsepower wars this time around. In fact, the Hellcat price per horsepower is only 85 dollars! But does all that muscle make the Hellcat faster than the ZL1 too? You bet it does! It hits the 0-60 in 3.5 seconds and has an impressive 10.8 second quarter mile. Smoking the Camaro on the drag strip. And it’s top speed? 199 miles per hour because you know hp was too much Unlike any other modern muscle car offering, the Hellcat is an unashamed, full-on badass muscle car. While Ford and Chevy are producing more and more sophisticated designs, Dodge put all their efforts into POWER, street presence, and performance on the drag strip. Ford is the last to enter the race with the recently announced Shelby GT350 Mustang. Ford vs Dodge Dodge vs Ford Ford vs Chevy ZL1 vs GT350 vs Hellcat Hellcat vs ZL1 GT350 vs ZL1 GT350 vs Z/28 GT350 vs Hellcat Hellcat vs Z/28 Z/28 vs GT350 Z/28 vs Hellcat Z/28 vs ZL1 http://4wheelonline.com/
Only 1 pickup truck in 2016 won't eat your legs in a crash! Watch More - http://bit.ly/1sgmU1O Subscribe to our channel for the latest in 4x4 news.

We can debate our favorite truck brand’s off-road chops, reliability, towing and horsepower numbers until the end of time, but those aren’t the only reasons to buy a truck. Another reason so many people like pickups is because you feel a lot safer when you’re higher and heavier than all the other crazy drivers on the road. In that regard only 1 pickup brand can claim that crown for 2016. There’s only one way to find out who! Watching slow motion crash videos. 4WheelOnline Video The nonprofit Insurance Institute for Highway Safety did three tests on 2016 full size pickups, and only one of them came out on top! They conducted 2 frontal crash tests, side impact and roof crush tests to determine the likelihood of death or serious injury in the event of a collision. Last year, IIHS discovered the Ford F-150 extended cab lacked many of the structural countermeasures that helped the crew cab earn their top safety grades. So let’s see if the Blue Oval and the rest of the pickup industry were able to learn from their mistakes. So RAM, Chevy, Toyota and Ford all earned good ratings when it came to the moderate overlap front test, side test and head restraint evaluations. So that’s a great start for all our full size contenders. Things get a bit tricker when it comes to the roof crush test though. The RAM 1500s performed the worst here with a marginal grade from IIHS. The Tundra CrewMax scored a grave above it at acceptable and four pickups led the pack with good ratings from the organization. According to IIHS 44 percent of occupant deaths in pickups are in rollovers. The small overlap was the hardest test of all for trucks. IIHS noticed consistent moderate to severe intrusion into the driver footwell during this test; which could trap a driver’s legs and lead to serious lower leg, ankle and foot injuries. At the bottom of the pile was the RAM 1500 Crew Cab and RAM 1500 Quad Cab which both earned marginal ratings overall and poor ratings for structure. The maximum intrusion during the small overlap test for the RAMs reached 16-17 inches. Larger crew cabs from Chevy and Toyota didn’t fair too much better either. The Silverado 1500 Crew Cab and Tundra CrewMax both earned marginal ratings during this test. Their double cab variants on the other hand both picked up acceptable ratings in the small overlap crash tests. Ford’s F-150s, including their 2016 model SuperCabs were the only large pickups to clinch a good rating in the small overlap crash test. They clearly took last year’s results to heart when IIHS gave them the SuperCabs a marginal rating in the same test. The Blue Oval is the only badge that will be on trucks with a Top Safety Pick from IIHS but what do you think about these results? Do they make you reconsider your favorite pickup or are they just a bunch of bunk? You can let us know in our poll here! FCA defended their RAMs by saying “Our vehicles are designed for real-world performance and no single test determines overall, real-world vehicle safety.” The pickup crash test battle was the biggest news this week so until next time I’m Ken - and you’ve just been refreshed!
