Top 10 Best Pickup Trucks

If you need a workhorse that won't let you down, you've come to the right place. Pickup trucks are icons of power and utility, and they play a huge role in getting the job done (not to mention getting out for weekend fun!).

But every truck owner knows - they're not all equal. Some are built for serious towing, others focus on comfort, and then there are those designed to tackle the roughest terrain. So, what makes a pickup truck the best? That's where you come in.

We're putting the power in your hands! Which of these legendary trucks are truly worthy of top honors? Have you driven one that's blown your expectations out of the water? Or maybe there's a trusty workhorse in your garage you swear by. Now's your chance to share.
The Top Ten
1 Ford F-150 SVT

Ford makes the inside of their trucks way more spacious. Inside Chevy/GMC trucks, you feel like sardines, in my opinion.

Ford F-150 Harley Davidson all the way...

I personally think Ford is the best because I grew up with those trucks. #fordstrong

2 Chevrolet Silverado

This is the very first truck I've owned, and it's given me so many memories on our trips. We had our first off-road trail together, and it never failed me. Although it's not in great shape now, we're planning to build it into a weekend toy.

Lots of cool stuff is on the way, like 33-inch tires, new suspension, and a couple of LED light bars we ordered from 4WheelOnline. More updates to come as the budget allows.

I have never junked a Chevy truck yet. I'm always able to sell it for a reasonable amount, usually at about 250,000 miles. I can't say the same about a Ford. I have junked two at 150,000 miles.

After years of buying used Chevy trucks (which was never a bad thing), I was finally able to get a new 2015 Silverado 1500. I don't suspect I'll ever need to buy another truck.

3 Dodge Ram 2500

The best truck is not the 2500. It's the 1500. The 1500 is cheaper and perhaps better off-road. The Dodge Ram SRT is faster than any truck in the world. It may even be faster than the Porsche Cayenne.

I have a 1996 Dodge Ram 2500 5.9, and I have out-pulled Ford F250s and Silverados. This truck has lots of power. Why would you buy a truck for speed? That's what cars are for. Lift trucks and make them loud and badass.

I think out of all the trucks, Dodge has the best sound with pipes on.

4 Dodge Ram 3500 Turbo Hemi
5 Dodge Ram 1500

The Ram 1500 has been the standard, causing many truck companies to update their models and compete on a bigger field than ever before.

Best truck. As I like to say, if you can't dodge it, ram it.

'02 1500 with a Hurst shifter. Best truck I have ever driven!

6 Jeep J10 Honcho
7 Ford F-250
8 GMC Sierra 3500HD

I have owned a 2000 GMC 3500 2WD with an anti-slip axle, 5.7 cast-iron block and heads, and an L480E trans. This truck has the old-style body. All I can say is this truck has been one hell of a truck! I only wish they still made them. I would buy one in a heartbeat.

GM is a very trustworthy company. I've had the same 1948 GMC that my grandfather bought, and it is still running with no problems. GM has much better quality vehicles than Ford or Dodge. Foreign companies don't even come close. That's the reason GM is one of the top sellers to the US Armed Forces.

9 Toyota Tacoma

Best truck I've ever owned, and I'm 74 years old! My 2008 Tacoma is worth exactly what I paid for it three years ago. The only problem was the radio stereo, which was made by General Motors. Toyota replaced it!

They hold their value over the years. Chevy, Dodge, and Toyota make the best quality. Ford offers a smoother ride but not the long-lasting quality.

The toughest all-rounder truck and best value for money. More than any other truck in the world when you include the Hi-lux model.

10 Cadillac Escalade EXT
The Contenders
11 Chevrolet 1500 HD
12 Toyota Tundra

Let me start off by saying that the name tells you everything: "Tundra" means it can handle the toughest winters. You know this is a quality truck because it pulled a NASA shuttle, and no other truck could. Its V8 engine makes it better than the Tacoma because of power and horsepower.

The Toyota Tundra is actually my favorite pickup because of how reliable those trucks are. I actually like them better than the F-150s and Silverados, despite being a Ford guy.

13 Dodge Dakota

May be small, but it never let me down.

True, especially the 96 manual Sport.

14 Chevrolet 3500 HD

My father owns one. They are great running vehicles, and whatever the conditions are, the truck will get you down the track with a great time. They have great pulling power, monster overloads, great load capacity, and loads of torque. If you need it, it is one of the few 1 tons that you can almost drive like a gasser.

15 Chevrolet Avalanche

I like the Chevrolet Avalanche and actually prefer it over the Ford Explorer Sport Trac. The Avalanche has better fuel economy, and it's a reliable truck. Its platform is shared with the Suburban.

16 Ford Ranger

My dad had a 1980s Ford Ranger with a 5-speed manual transmission. I like the Rangers, but the only problem is that there is very little room with the seats in the extended cabs. There's hardly any legroom, but other than that, the Ford Ranger is a very good truck.

17 Holden Colorado

Thought I'd stick in an Aussie. After all, we are the best country.

18 Honda Ridgeline
19 Dodge Ram SLT
20 Ford F-150 Raptor

It is a newcomer, but it is the best!

21 Nissan Titan

Great pickup truck. My personal favorite is the Pro-4X because of its off-road capability and ability to tow.

It's a very good truck and is as reliable as the Toyota Tundra.

22 Ford F-650

These trucks are huge and can be useful as commercial trucks.

23 Toyota Hilux

Don't forget the Toyota. It is the best pickup of all time and is very reliable too. Top Gear (UK) tested this, and it was invincible. It survived the sea, it survived fire, and it survived a collapsing building.

24 Isuzu D-Max
25 Nissan Frontier
