Chicago Auto Show: 5 new-look trucks

Even fuel costs creeping above $4 per gallon in some places can't keep Americans away from their trucks. The best-selling vehicle in America continues to be the full-sized Ford F-150 pickup.

Historically, manufacturers don't update truck models as often as cars. When they do, redesigned trucks are big news.
