Many American drivers love the overall versatility of a pickup truck. For this reason, today’s truck market is now more competitive than ever before. Find out who makes the most awesome pickup truck.
Designed with a new aluminum body, the 2015 Ford F-150 has shed a significant amount of weight. Not only does the weight loss help to boost the truck’s efficiency, but it also equates to a more engaging performance on the road. For the drivers who are seeking car-like gas mileage, the new 2.7-liter EcoBoost engine will definitely peak their interest. The super-efficient engine helps the F-150 to return an impressive 26 mpg. Of course, prospective buyers can also upgrade to the high-powered 3.5 EcoBoost engine or the muscular V-8 engine. Featuring an exclusive 360-degree camera system and adaptive cruise control, the top-of-the-line Platinum model is quite luxurious.
Dodge Ram 1500
The Dodge Ram 1500 certainly makes its case for being the most awesome pickup truck. Unlike the competition, the Ram 1500 actually offers a diesel upgrade. The all-purpose EcoDiesel engine churns out a capable 240 horsepower and 420 pound-feet of torque. With a highway fuel economy rating of nearly 30 mpg, the EcoDiesel model is remarkable efficient. Available as an option, the Ram 1500’s air suspension system makes heavy-duty hauling a breeze. While all of the trims look impressive, the Sport model looks especially intimidating with its smoked-out headlights and rumbling dual-outlet exhaust system.
Chevrolet Silverado 1500
There are many truck enthusiasts who love the Chevrolet Silverado’s chiseled appearance. Luckily, it performs just as well as it looks. On the road, the Silverado delivers an extremely smooth ride. If you plan to travel off-road, the ultra-rugged Z71 model will certainly get the job done. The Z71 model has been reinforced with several off-road goodies, including special shocks and skid plates. While the Silverado 1500 is built to work hard, it is still a capable family hauler. The roomy crew cab version can be equipped with a rear-seat entertainment system and a power sunroof. Despite the V-8 engine’s strong pulling power, its 23-mpg fuel economy rating is not bad at all.
In conclusion, all three of these pickup trucks are awesome in their own right. Dodge’s have won 3 of the last 6 Motor Trend Truck of the Year Awards. It is just too hard to crown a winner. It simply comes down to a matter of preference. Which truck is the best in your opinion? Let us know in the comments section below or on our Cool Rides Online Facebook Page.
