10 Best Pick Up Trucks
The 10 best pick up trucks are definitely not family vehicles and definitely don’t offer as much comfort as a luxury car, but something about it is just masculine. They’re specifically suited to some jobs and lifestyles, so list the best pick up trucks on the road.
Chevrolet Silverado 3500. Chevrolet’s line up of trucks has always been impressive, and this mechanical beast with the best hauling capacity in the truck world is undoubtedly #1 in the list. It’s available with different options like regular, extended and crew cab and also with a two-wheel or a four-wheel drive option. There are three options for the engines – 6 liter, 8.1 liter, and 6.6 liter V8; the transmission can be either the standard 5-speed or special 4-speed.
GMC Sierra 3500. General Motors is still at the top two as always with the Sierra because it follows a simple rule – big trucks can haul big loads. As is the case with the Silverado, this also has the cabin options of regular, extended, and crew cab. GMC offers the same engine capacities of 6, 8.1, and 6.6 liters with the Sierra. The transmission system has options for the regular 5-speed or a 6-speed.
Dodge Ram 3500. Dodge probably makes the best dually pick up trucks and with the Ram, it means serious business. Designed for the workman, this truck has options for its chassis size – regular cab, quad cab, mega cab with different bed lengths. The quad cab is available with the dual rear wheels. Dodge gives the driver an option for the engine sizes – 5.7 liter V8 and a 5.9 liter V8. The transmission can be either manual or automatic.
- Toyota Tundra. The Japanese are at it again with the Tundra; they always had amazing pick up trucks and the Tundra continues to impress. The failure of the older Tundra has led to a comprehensive reworking and it’s made available in regular, double cab, and CrewMax size with varying lengths of the bed. There are multiple engine choices too, with the 4.0 liter V6 standard with a five-speed transmission and the 5.7 liter V8 standard that comes with a 6.speed automatic.
- Nissan Titan. Nissan yet again introduces a new full size truck into a market dominated by American manufacturers. The Titan comes with Crew or King Cab sizes with multiple trim levels for each with an assortment of exterior and interior options. Thanks to the four door cabin, there’s space for passengers, and the car is powered by a 5.6 liter V8 engine with a 5-speed automatic transmission system.
- Ford F-350. Ford proves that the F-350 is not just another American pick up truck by making this suitable for a workman and for his family. Powered by one of these powerful engines – 5.4 liter V8, 6.8 liter V8, 5.4 liter V8, it offers exceptional towing capacity. Regular, extended and crew cab are the options for the body sizes and you have the option for a 5 or a 6 speed transmission system.
- Chevrolet Colorado. Chevrolet bags two places in this list with the compact Colorado. With no extra bed sizes, this truck can sometimes be very small with engine options of 2.9 and 3.7 liters. There are options of a two or a four wheel drive, and though it comes with good mileage, the performance is not satisfactory.
- Toyota Tacoma: Toyota’s second record in this list is attributed to the compact Tacoma with extensive road capacities and good quality. With regular, extended and crew cab options, and a choice of four-wheel or two-wheel drive, the V6 engine is the way to go with Tacoma. It has two options for the engine size – 2.7 or 4 liter.
- Cadillac EXT. Cadillac is known for luxury, and this workhorse is a luxury pick up truck. It follows the drivetrain and the suspension designs of the Escalade, and features a 6.2 V8 under its hood. There are options of two and four wheel drive.
- Honda Ridgeline. Honda is new to the market, so it’s understandable if the Ridgeline is not the norm. Stylish, appealing and heavy at 247 hp V6, it has a five speed transmission and offers some cool features like a connected cab and bed.
