The plethora of pickup trucks on the market makes it difficult to choose which one is best for you. With that in mind, here’s a list of the 5 best pickupss on the market in the US and Canada for 2018.
2018 Ford F-350 Super Duty – Starting at $34,525
The name says it all – the Ford F-350 Super Duty is one of the toughest, most heavy-duty pickups on the market right now. Although for some buyers the aluminum body may seem a bit off-putting, it makes the F-350 surprisingly strong. One of the biggest reasons that the F-350 made this list was its customizability, with options for a hard worker to semi-luxury. This beast of a truck has a 6.2-liter V8 engine, which gives it 384 horsepower.
2018 Chevrolet Silverado 3500HD – Starting at $36,005
Similar to the F-350, the Chevrolet Silverado 3500HD is a beast of a pickup. With a towing capacity of 14,600 pounds with the standard engine and 23,300 with the optional 6.6L V8 engine, the Silverado can tow pretty much anything that you hook up to it. Towing isn’t its only strong suit – its interior wants you to both sleep and work in it, with its foam seats, wireless charging pads, USB ports and power outlet, and sound-deadening technology in the doors.
2018 Chevrolet Colorado – Starting at $20,000
A bit less of a power-monger than the F-350 and Silverado, the Chevy Colorado is a more fuel-efficient choice for a more civilized age. Being the most fuel-efficient pickup in America, it is the obvious long term economical choice for the average user. It also starts at only $20,000, less than half that of the F-350. Just because it’s cheaper doesn’t mean the Colorado is poor quality. Far from it – the Colorado is able to put up with anything you drive it through with its ability to change its settings depending on the terrain you’re about to go through.
2018 GMC Sierra – Starting at $28,705
You don’t always need a super heavy truck, but for those jobs where you still need the oomph that a regular car doesn’t give, you need the GMC Sierra. With a distinctive design and futuristic LED lighting, the Sierra is one of the most car-like pickups in this year’s lineup. The interior is comfortable, as expected. What this pickup lacks in strength is adds in control – the Sierra has trailer sway control, hill assist, trailer brake control, and a rearview camera.
2018 Honda Ridgeline – Starting at $29,630
When you think of a pickup, you may imagine a boxy, un-aerodynamic vehicle. Not so with the Ridgeline. This truck is one of the sleekest that one can find. Even though it has a lot of curves, it still gives off a power-like vibe. The Ridgeline also excels in its boatload of features, one of which is smart 4-wheel independent suspension giving a constant smooth ride. It can also tow up to 5,000 pounds, impressive for its category.
