4 of the Best Pickup Trucks in 2015

Do you have things to tow or haul? Then you should look into the best pickup trucks of today. Here are four of them:


This powerful machine from Toyota is a mainstay of the mid-size pickup truck category, with 3 body styles you can choose from to meet your driving needs. The Tacoma can come with the standard 159-hp 2.7-liter four-cylinder engine or a 236-hp 4.0-liter V-6 engine, which is optional. Both rear-wheel and four-wheel drive models are available as are automatic and manual transmissions. Sporting the rough-and-tumble TRD Pro Series, this truck has a raised suspension, locking rear differential and the extra visual machismo. This new machine will not be available for sale until 2016 though, so have to do some waiting!


Silverado 1500

Though the pickup market has gone fancy today, the Chevrolet Silverado still sticks to its basic-truck design. With an accurate steering, this machine is stated to handle more like a big car, rather than a big truck. Its exterior still resembles its predecessors, with a 4.3-liter V-6 engine that makes for 305 lb-ft of torque and is rated for 24 mpg highway. If you want more power and hauling and towing capabilities, then you can also choose to have the optional 5.3 or 6.2-liter V-8 engines.


Sierra 1500

Though the Sierra 1500 from GMC aims to present itself as a more premium and upscale version of the Silverado, beneath its nicely sculpted and trimmed sheet metal are features indicating that these two pickup trucks are basically the same. It sports a 285-hp V-6 base engine, but there are also the optional 355-hp V-8 and a 420-hp V-8. It offers a maximum payload of 2,260 lbs, with a maximum towing capacity of 12,000 lbs. All-wheel drive is optional for all models.

Ram 1500


Given its power, leather-lined luxury rig, comfortable seats, smooth ride and storage capacity, this one from Dodge is definitely worth your consideration. Aside from the standard 305-hp 3.6-liter V-6, you can also choose to have it with the optional 395-hp 5.7-liter Hemi V-8 or the efficient 240-hp 3.0-liter turbodiesel V-6. This truck has a maximum tow rating of 10,640 lbs and a maximum payload of 1,890 lbs.

There you have it! When you are thinking of buying a pickup truck today, start looking at these machines.
