2010 Ford F-150 SVT Raptor – Click above for high-res image gallery

We love ourselves a good top 10 list, and when talk turns from cars to trucks, there's nobody who's opinion we respect more than the brain-trust behind PickupTrucks.com. That said, we now present the Top 10 Significant Pickup Trucks of the Decade as chosen by the aforementioned truck nuts (no, not that kind) and AutoPacific.com.

Every major automaker that sells pickup trucks here in the United States is represented on this particular list, which only seems fitting in today's competitive landscape. Further, there's a truck for just about every need – no matter what size, towing power, seating capability or fuel mileage you are looking for, you'll find it offered here in the States... except perhaps for something really small.

Though it just hit the market at the very tail end of the allowable date range, we'll happily throw a vote in the direction of the Ford F-150 SVT Raptor. It's truly unlike anything else ever offered for sale from a major automaker, and we're happy Ford had the guts to build it. That said, click here to read the complete list, then come back and let us know what you think.

      There is 1 more year before the 1st decade of the 21st century ends...
        • 5 Years Ago
        No, there isn't. The decade runs from 1/1/00 to 12/31/09. That's ten years. Ten years equals a decade.

        jmg_NX21 and Joe are both wrong. Because there was no year "0" the centuries actually begin with year "1", ie. the last century was from 1901 to 2000. So, 2001 actually was the first year of this century.

      The Raptor is the most exciting truck of this decade.

      Honestly, I feel the Titan deserves a spot on this list. Yes it is a little underpowered but atleast Nissan got it right out of the gate. Toyota took a few years to get it right (even though they went overkill on the bigger is better mentality). The good thing about Nissan and the Titan is they knew it wasn't going to be a big seller. They knew they wernt going to steal sales from GM Ford and Dodge. The truck was offered as an alternative and works well for brand loyalty. I've seen a good amout of people who have a Titan to tow thier 240sx or Z car. Back on topic, the Titan deserves to stay because Nissan didn't throw it out there haistly and say "maybe this will work". Nissan did thier research and tried to get everything as good as possible from the start. Well, except for weak brakes and a weak rear axle. But they got that fixed and now it's a great truck.

      I'm not a Toyota fan but I'll give them the credit that they made one big truck. If only the frame wasn't soo weak and flexed like 2 thin copper ac tubes then the truck could do significantly better. Here's hoping the next gen Tundra has better luck. And here's hoping Nissan finds a replacement for the Titan one of these days. Were going on 7 years with the same exact truck now…

      I agree with Dakotart - SRT-10 and SVT Lighning both deserve honorable mention at a minimum. Significance? Should be obvious.

      2 Toyota...nice. Toyota make good trucks for a foreign company.

        They look good in the showrooms but then after you buy one and take it off the lot you get to experience your first flaw. Then after the first recall you wait for the next, and the next, and the next, and so on.
        The truck that's changing it all. Buyers remorse the first day and every day thereafter.
        The truck that's changing it all. Puts you on a first name basis with everyone in the service department. Heck, you just might get to know their families.
        Maybe after you buy one Toyota could just keep it for a month or so and pre-fix all the flaws. Never mind, they'd need a good three months.

      love that pic. it's been my desktop wallpaper for quite some time now.
      • 5 Years Ago
      I hope 2010-2019 brings trucks with even more wheels.
      • 5 Years Ago
      Article is way too hard and slow to navigate effectively. Typical problem with AOL stuff.
      • 5 Years Ago
      Any list with the Raptor (even one with the ridgeline) gets a thumbs up from me.
