At a time when each of the big half-ton pickup truck makers (Chevrolet, Ford, GMC, Nissan, Ram and Toyota) are finishing one of their biggest years in recent memory, it looks like the segment is going to get even hotter. According to a recent Bloomberg piece, both Ram and Chevrolet will likely introduce their latest and greatest versions of their new half-ton pickup trucks at the 2018 North American International Auto Show in Detroit in January. That means things are about to get real.
Sister site Cars.com provides us with all kinds of auto sales data; recently we received data for pickup truck transaction prices for 2017, and it looked interesting to us. The chart below should give you a good idea of which truckmakers did the best sales job nationwide during the first half of 2017 (near the top) and which were more likely relying on incentives to make their deals.
This is probably our best look at the new design language on the next-generation 2019 Chevrolet Silverado 1500; it reminds us of some of the exterior lines on the current mid-size Chevrolet Colorado. And maybe that makes sense. By all accounts the Colorado has been a solid hit for GM and is likely to sell close to 115,000 units by year end. Not bad for something that didn't exist just 2.5 years ago.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
