Car and driver

Turn any friendly neighborhood barbecue into a backyard wrestling match with this simple trick: declare your pickup king. Well guess what, brother? Being the best is not about who has the greatest Calvin and Hobbes sticker on the rear window. Full-size pickups are America’s best-selling vehicles, and the fight between them is closer than ever.

Trucks today are capable of accelerating faster than sports cars as the Porsche 718 Cayman GT4 and can tow up to seven tons using conventional towing. Lots of folding chairs and steel cages. The truck is the backbone of America. In 2019, pickups accounted for more than 3.1 million vehicle sales in the United States, or more than the entire Iowa population. Each of these trucks can handle classic pickup needs with ease, and if you haven’t already ranked in the Toyota, Nissan, Ram, Chevy or Ford camps, we’ve ranked the players in the segment from worst to best to help you in La your research.

8. Nissan Titan

The Nissan Titan exists slightly outside the mainstream in this segment. Engine choice is missing – there’s only a 400hp V-8 option – which severely limits configurability compared to its competitors, and the Titan’s overall execution seems lacking. For 2022, Nissan has also equipped its base trucks with a towbar and spray coating. Even with these new standard perks, the Titan is more choo-choo than chug. Its ride quality is poor and the steering paints sharpness; look to the Pro-4X coating for off-road capabilities, but look everywhere in terms of towing capacity as the Titan has the lowest level in the light load class. Each model now has an 8.0-inch touchscreen with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, which is something its domestic competitors’ fleet versions don’t have.

  • Base Price: $ 38,145
  • Powertrain: 5.6-liter 400hp V-8, nine-speed automatic transmission
  • Maximum trailer: 9660 lb

7. Toyota Tundra

The Toyota Tundra it stands in an unusual position as the newest truck available in the full-size segment. The third-generation Tundra now offers a 437hp twin-turbo hybrid V-6 with 10-speed automatic transmission. Non-hybrid SR models have 348 horsepower and 405 foot-pounds of torque, while other trims get a 389-horsepower version of the same engine. Its rear suspension is also brand new, replacing the old leaf spring style with coil springs to give it a more controlled ride. Tundra TRD Pro models feature skid plates, suspension linkage and black wheels wrapped in sturdy all-terrain tires. Extended cabin models can be purchased with a 6.5 or 8.1 foot bed, while the larger crew cabin Tundras have a 5.5 or 6.5 foot bed. An 8.0-inch infotainment touchscreen is standard, but a large 14.0-inch screen is available – the largest in its class.

  • Base Price: $ 37,645
  • Powertrain: 348hp 3.5-liter V-6 biturbo, 389hp 3.5-liter V-6 biturbo, 437hp 3.5-liter V-6 biturbo with 48hp AC engine; 10-speed automatic transmission
  • Maximum tow: 12,000 lbs

6. Chevrolet Silverado 1500

Maybe it was cold feet, maybe it was common sense, but after a 2019 redesign, Chevy has revised its Silverado 1500 for 2022. Trim levels LT and higher get a fresh face and revised interior that includes a huge 13.4-inch infotainment touchscreen. This helps differentiate the Chevy’s halftone interior from other things in its lineup, like, say, an Equinox. One thing that hasn’t changed, a sturdy, 420-horsepower 6.2-liter V-8 that deactivates up to six cylinders to save fuel. Other powertrains include a 310-horsepower turbocharged four-cylinder that can tow up to 9,300 pounds and a 277-horsepower turbodiesel that puts the Silverado near the top of the segment (when equipped on RWD models) for efficiency with an EPA-rated 31. . mpg highway rating. Chevy also added an off-road vehicle Model ZR2 with special bumpers to help approach and departure angles. That’s only offered as a double cab with a 2.5-inch suspension lift.

  • Base Price: $ 28,195
  • Powertrain: 277hp, 2.7-liter inline 6 turbocharged diesel with 310hp in-line 4 turbocharger, 355hp 5.3-liter V-8, 420hp 6.2-liter V-8; eight-speed automatic transmission, 10-speed automatic transmission
  • Maximum tow: 13,300 lb

5. GMC Sierra 1500

If you can swing the new one GMC Sierra 1500it’s price premium over its mechanically identical brother, branded Chevrolet (the Silverado), does it. Like the Silverado, the Sierra has a number of different engines and transmissions and is available with rear or all-wheel drive. Although there is no high-altitude off-road option like the Aries TRX or Ford F-150 Raptor, a Sierra AT4 the model is available with 2.0 inches of suspension lift and other off-road equipment. Unfortunately, the more expensive GMC version suffers from the same insignificant interior style and solid drive quality as the Silverado, but the extra chrome and sharper lines work wonders for GM’s halftone pickup design.

  • Base Price: $ 29,295
  • Powertrain: 277hp, 2.7-liter inline 6 turbocharged diesel with 310hp in-line 4 turbocharger, 355hp 5.3-liter V-8, 420hp 6.2-liter V-8; eight-speed automatic transmission, 10-speed automatic transmission
  • Maximum tow: 13,200 lb

4. Ford F-150 Raptor

Using next generation F series equipment, Ford F-150 Raptor takes flight for 2022. For the landing gear, the Raptor uses 35-inch BFGoodrich KO2 all-terrain tires; 37-inch KO2 are also available. A mix of Fox Racing variable compression dampers and multi-link rear suspension absorbs bumps, bumps, holes and pits. A 450PS twin-turbo V-6 with 10-speed automatic transmission is the only powertrain, for now. A much more powerful and arguably better sounding supercharged Raptor R V-8 was confirmed for future production. Only available in a four-door SuperCrew version, the hulk-shaped fenders and three amber LED lights in the grille set it apart from vanilla F-150s with big tires. The Raptor can tow up to 8200 pounds and has an EPA-rated range of 576 miles thanks to its 36-gallon fuel tank.

  • Base Price: $ 65,840
  • Powertrain: 450hp 3.5-liter twin-turbo V-6 engine, 10-speed automatic transmission
  • Maximum tow: 8000 lbs

3. Ford F-150

The F-Series trucks have been the best-selling vehicle in the United States for 43 consecutive years and the Ford F-150, now in its 14th generation, is not left behind in the dust. Under its powertrain options curtain is a 430hp hybrid PowerBoost which increases fuel economy by 20 percent with 30 more horsepower and 70 foot-pounds of extra torque over the regular 3.5-liter twin-turbo V-6. It can tow up to 12,700 lbs in this configuration. An optional Work surface allows you to transform the first row into a work table. The new variable assistance steering, standard on the King Ranch and above, is narrow and direct, and even on the lower structures, the ride is calm and composed. For an F-150 more prone to raptors, the tremor it has an off-road focus in a less aggressive package.

  • Base Price: $ 30,985
  • Powertrain: 290hp 3.3-liter V-6, 400hp 5.0-liter V-8, 325hp 2.7-liter twin-turbo V-6, 3.5-liter twin-turbo V-6 400hp, 250- V-6 3.0-liter turbodiesel, 400hp V-6 biturbo and 3.5-liter 24-valve DOHC intercooler; permanent magnet synchronous AC motor, 47 hp; combined power, 430 hp, 570 lb-ft; 10-speed automatic transmission
  • Maximum tow: 14,000 lbs

2. Ram 1500 TRX

The nearly 3.5 tons Ram 1500 TRX it’s a lot of trucks, but it knows how to show off its size. The 702hp Hellcat engine is a hoot, and despite its weight, the TRX gets to 60mph in just 3.7 seconds, making it the fastest truck we’ve ever tested. The underlying Bilstein shocks provide more than one foot of suspension travel, allowing its 35-inch Goodyear Wrangler ATs to drop. It’s a large cargo, measuring 5.9 inches wider and 3.3 inches taller than the regular Ram 1500, but inside it’s just as luxurious. A 12-inch touchscreen infotainment system is standard, and a head-up display, heated and ventilated front seats and carbon fiber details are available. No other truck can reach, climb and fly over anything in front of it like this.

  • Base Price: $ 75,275
  • Powertrain: 702hp supercharged 6.2-liter V-8 engine, eight-speed automatic transmission
  • Maximum tow: 8100 lbs

1st ram 1500

The Aries 1500 is the king of the mountain, having beat its biggest Detroit rivals in our latest three-truck comparison test and I won another 10 Best full-size retirement award for 2021. We could let those accolades do the talking, but here are a few more reasons we love this truck: The EcoDiesel V-6 engine available has the most power and torque of all light diesel pickups and is fuel efficient; the interior is a step or three above the competition; and it just drives well.

  • Base Price: $ 36,195
  • Powertrain: 260 HP 3.0L turbodiesel V-6, 305 HP 3.6L V-6 with eTorque, 395 HP 5.7L V-8, 395 HP 5.7L V-8 with eTorque engine; eight-speed automatic transmission
  • Maximum tow: 12,750 lb
