CARS & TRUCKS

Top 10 Trucks

Pickups haven’t always led such a charmed life. Back in the dark ages, when trucks were the sole province of tradesmen, farmers, and other commercially minded operators, looks and luxury weren’t part of the plan. But a few decades back, the buying public began to see the beauty in the rugged utility they offered, and sales took off as more folks adopted them as their daily vehicles.
Now, of course, pickups are routinely the top-selling vehicles of any calendar year, and manufacturers have engaged in a nonstop trend of adding features, capability, and technology. To keep tabs on the ever-evolving segment, we grab seat time in and strap our test gear to the latest pickups at every available opportunity. The competition has never been fiercer—so buckle up.
