The Top 5 Most Popular Pickup Trucks on The Market
Have you noticed more pickup trucks on the road lately? It’s not your imagination! In January of this year, pickup truck sales rose by 4%. The increase in sales was most notable for full size trucks thanks to the Ford F-Series which saw an astonishing increase of 13% over last year.
Whether you are using them as work vehicles or simply to haul your personal items, the appeal of pickup trucks is growing.
In this article, we discuss some of the most popular and desired pickups on the market today.
Often touted as the best all-round truck available, the F-150 is also the bestselling vehicle in the U.S. This vehicle has a stylish design and a smooth ride. Under the hood, you’ll find a 3.5 litre twin-turbocharged EcoBoost V6 or you may choose a 5.0 litre V8 option.
Some of the newer tech toys in this pickup include 360-degree camera with split-view display and Pro Trailer Backup Assist.
GMC Sierra 1500 Denali
Looking for a vehicle that is a little posher? Then consider the GMC Sierra 1500 Denali. This vehicle can rightly be classified as a luxury pickup truck with its high-quality trim and interior. This truck offers an array of optional technology as well as including wireless phone charging.
This high-end pickup is powered by a 6.2 litre V8 and it offers a smooth ride with lots of horsepower.
RAM 1500 Rebel
At the other side of the spectrum, we have the Ram 1500 Rebel which is ideal for those drivers looking to hit the trail. This four-wheel drive vehicle is designed for folks who like to play in the dirt featuring mud flaps, skid plates, and front tow hooks just in case you get stuck!
The Rebel comes with a beefed-up suspension system which will come in handy if you enjoy off-roading and is available in a 5.7 litre Hemi V8 or 3.0 litre EcoDiesel V6.
If you prefer the feel of a car to that of a truck, but still need the hauling capacity of a pickup truck, then the Honda Ridgeline might just be the vehicle that you need. The Ridgeline has a body and handling similar to that of a car but it has a pickup bed.
The suspension is also more comparable to that of a car, so that means less vibration on the road.
Chevrolet Colorado Diesel
If fuel efficiency is high on your list, then you may want to check out the most fuel-efficient truck on the market – the Chevrolet Colorado Diesel. While diesel has seen some controversy in the wake of the Volkswagen scandal, it still makes sense for pickup trucks because of the torque that it offers for towing.
This midsize vehicle offers not only great fuel efficiency but excellent handling as well as nice extras such as Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, and WiFi.
