This list has something for everyone, showcasing the level of variety you can find in your next pickup. Maybe the Dodge Ram 1500 at the top of our list has caught your eye. It's available in a wide range of trims from the basic Tradesman trim, perfect for if you need a capable work truck, all the way through to the Longhorn, which features a huge 12-inch touchscreen as standard (on 2019 models).

Another popular pickup is the Ford F150—part of the F-series line up of trucks that have been around in some shape or form since 1948. If a V8 is more your style, most of the models on this list (save for the Nissan Frontier, Chevrolet Colorado, GMC Canyon, and Toyota Tacoma) have either available or standard V8 engines.

One of the great things about a pickup truck is the off-road capabilities. Now, most pickups will be pretty handy off the beaten path but some of these trucks come with specialized off-road trims. Take a look at the Tacoma TRD Off-Road (available on all third-generation models from 2016 to present), which features Multi-terrain Select (MTS) and Crawl Control 64 (both on 4x4 automatic models only).

You'll enjoy Chevy's off-road equivalent, the ZR2 package, available on the second-generation Colorado (2016 to present). It features Multimatic™ shocks and front/rear electronic locking differentials designed to tackle even the toughest terrain.
