More drivers than ever before are starting to choose pickup trucks as a means of transportation. Trucks offer a lot of versatility and usefulness when performing daily tasks. Trucks can be expensive so make sure you know you’re choosing the best pickup truck. Here are some the best trucks that are available on today’s automotive market.
Dodge Ram 1500
Over the years, the Dodge Ram 1500 has improved by leaps and bounds. The 2013 year model stands as one of the most technologically advanced trucks on the road today. Although a powerful HEMI V8 engine is available, the V6 is the better option for a daily driver. It delivers amazing fuel efficiency and has a respectable towing capacity. Not only does the available air suspension assist when hauling loads, but it also helps the Ram 1500 to exhibit a plush ride.
America’s most popular truck is still among the best. The base 3.7-liter engine generates enough power to handle the basic tasks. The optional twin-turbocharged V6 engine delivers a great balance of fuel efficiency and torque. Some drivers will still prefer the grunt of the naturally-aspirated V8 engine choices. If you prefer a high-performance machine, then the F-150 Raptor model is arguably the most capable off-road truck on the market. Aspiring buyers can expect to be treated with a slew of high-tech amenities on all models.
If you do not desire a full-sized truck, then the 2013 Toyota Tacoma will definitely fulfill your needs. Available with either a four-cylinder or six-cylinder engine, the Tacoma is the best small truck in its class. The Tacoma’s level of refinement helps to propel it over the competition. There are not too many trucks that exhibit better driving dynamics. If you need better fuel efficiency, then your best bet is to choose the four-cylinder engine with a manual gearbox. These trucks also have a long history of being extremely reliable.
Chevy Silverado 3500 Duramax
If you need the ultimate hauling machine, then the Silverado 3500 Duramax will get the job done. This heavy-duty truck can easily tow campers and race cars with no problems. The turbo diesel engine never lacks of power when making long journeys. The crew cab interior setup means that at least four passengers will be able to ride in comfort.
