The Canadian Truck King Challenge was established in 2006 as an annual new pickup truck evaluation that would create real-world fuel consumption data, testing stories and compelling video coverage for the benefit of every Canadian truck owner/buyer. Creator, Howard J Elmer, a 30-year automotive journalist, runs this third-party non-partisan testing series that manufacturers attend voluntarily and without expectations. Now completing its 11th year – Truck King – has become a trusted source of consumer information.
