It used to be that owning a pickup truck doomed you a weekend full of moving friends or hauling your neighbor’s yard waste to the dump. Today, savvier car owners are switching to “dark-side”. The flexibility added by this change in transportation has been key.
With this in mind, let’s take a glance at the most sought after pick-ups:
1. Chevrolet Silverado 2500
For the heavy outdoor enthusiast or the weekend boater this is the truck for you. Boasting a new 10-speed Allison automatic transmission, this truck maximizes its torque capacity. Coming with an 18,500-pound tow rating to match. No doubt, this beast of a truck is not meant for the city slicker. However, who stays in the city for the weekends anymore? Enjoy the freedom of the 6.6 liter Duramax V-8 diesel engine in the most rugged of environments.
2. GMC Sierra 1500
This truck is a truly versatile option. Whether you are a die-hard suburban dweller, outdoor-activity novice, or water-sports oracle, the packages offered on the GMC Sierra 1500 will fit just right. Though having a modest towing capacity of 10,000 lbs the fuel economy of this diesel is grand. The 3.0 inline-six diesel engine packs 460 pound-feet of torque punch. Alongside this are 6 HD cameras for maneuvering comfort.
3. Nissan Titan
With new interior design, patent driver assistance aids, and, for the first time on any truck, an automatic reverse braking feature, this Titan has undergone some notable changes. The new state-of-the-art 9-speed automatic transmission proves further that more than the style of the truck has been updated. Speaking of style, the Titan now has smartphone grips with charging station and can connect up to 6 devices on Wi-Fi. 3 grill choices, LED lights included on the bed and taillights, and 5 wheel options mean your unique style profile will be met.
4. Toyota Tundra
Obsolete is the option for a smaller 4.6-liter V8 engine. The 2020 Tundra comes equipped with a 5.7-liter V8 engine. So while gas mileage suffers a bit, this truck has a bona fide reputation as being a workhorse. Called by Forbes a “beautiful dinosaur” this battle-hardened truck is ideal for anyone interested in brute force. The TRD off-road suspension package ensures a smooth ride both on asphalt streets or the outback woodlands.
5. Dodge Ram 2500
Interestingly, the luxurious interior of this truck rivals most sedans. As an HD truck, this is an exciting find. Leather, real wood, metal trim are all available features. Brute meets beauty with this truck. See for yourself today.
6. Ford F-250
With the new Ford 10-speed automatic transmission said to perform better than other new transmissions on the market, Ford held nothing back for this year’s model upgrades. To add to the standard 6.2 Liter V8 engine is the option for more. A brand new 7.3Liter V8 engine (gasoline) comes as another option. Many more features such as wireless cellphone charging and Wi-Fi connections for 10 devices are available as well.
This is an exciting year for truck enthusiasts the country over. If you have been contemplating an upgrade or perhaps switching from car to truck, now is the time.
