Are you in the market for a new pickup truck? These vehicles have long been regarded as excellent all-rounders, with driving dynamics capable of both on and off-road activities, as well as working as a family vehicle or a work vehicle.
The pickup truck market is strong, with lots of options available. We’re going to take a look at 6 of the best pickup trucks you can buy in 2021 (in no particular order!), so keep reading if you’re looking for some help in choosing.
- Toyota Tundra
The Toyota Tundra is a full-size pickup that does the simple things well. Don’t expect loads of engine options or some of the bells and whistles that other pickup trucks have.
But you can expect impressive off-road performance and a spacious cabin across all trim levels. The Tundra has been around since 2007 and really hasn’t changed much since its inception, but if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.
- Ford F-150
This year’s F-150 is the 14th iteration of the most popular pickup truck in the USA and one of the bestselling vehicles on the market. Ford shows no signs of letting that record go with an impressive hybrid powertrain that delivers 430-hp.
The new Ford F-150 even has intuitive features like the ability to turn the front row into a workspace, which will be attractive to tradesmen and on-the-move workers alike.
- Ram 1500
If you’re looking for a great balance between power and economy, the Ram is an excellent choice. Pickups aren’t renowned for being the most economical vehicles so don’t be looking for crazy numbers, but 25mpg from a 3.0L V6 engine isn’t bad at all.
- GMC Sierra 1500
The GMC is the more upmarket brother of the Chevrolet Silverado, but we think it’s worth the premium purely because this truck just looks so good.
This mean-looking beast of a vehicle won’t match some of the other trucks in this list on offroad capability or even interior styling, but some of the trim alongside the classic look of the Sierra make it a viable option.
- Chevrolet Silverado 1500
As we’ve said, this truck is the same vehicle as the Sierra under the hood but it will cost you a little less.
There are plenty of engine options (5 to be precise) and trim levels will have you covered whether you’re looking for a workhorse or a luxury family car.
- Nissan Titan
There’s nothing particularly fancy or impressive about the Nissan Titan, but there’s enough on offer for it to be a consideration when looking for a new pickup truck.
The latest model has an improved infotainment screen and slightly more comfortable cabin, and the price is reasonable when weighed up against some of its competitors.
