Top Recommended Trucks

The best-selling vehicle in the U.S.? If you guessed Honda’s Accord or the Toyota Camry you’re close, but not close enough. The best-selling U.S. vehicle is a Ford F-Series pickup, and if you’re surprised get over it and move on. In crew cab guise the full-size pickup offers much of the room and versatility of a large SUV, while having the additional benefit of a bed in the back. And while the fullsize pickup, from Ford, GM and FCA dominate the market for personal-use trucks, the midsize pickup from Toyota, Nissan and GM is enjoying a significant uptick in demand, while the unibody pickup –Honda’s Ridgeline and an upcoming Hyundai – gives the car-based pickup a second chance.

2016 F-150

2016 Ford F-150

Ford went radically lean when it redesigned the Ford F-150 for 2015, giving its ever-popular full-size pickup an aluminum-intensive body.Visual appearance didn't change much, considering the dramatic re-skinning.Though the big pickup remains upright in profile, the F-150 lost 500 pounds or more.

For 2016, Ford F-150 gets a new SYNC 3 infotainment to replace the much-criticized MyFordTouch.Formerly a separate model, the off-road-focused FX4 is now an option package.Otherwise, little has changed for 2016.

The F-150 has been the top-selling vehicle in the U.S.for ages, up against its perennial rivals: Chevrolet Silverado, GMC Sierra, Ram 1500, plus Toyota Tundra and Nissan Titan.

2016 Tacoma

2016 Toyota Tacoma

Normally, when sitting in a vehicle and staring straight ahead at a 40-degree upward grade, I start thinking about staying calm and keeping firm but even pressure on the gas pedal. In the 2016 Toyota Tacoma, however, all I do is press a button and remove my feet from the equation. I'm happy to report that the new off-road-specific tech that's baked into the 2016 Toyota Tacoma is fully up to the challenge of clawing its way up, around, over, and through the toughest obstacles I could throw at it. An experienced off-roader can do just as well, but the …

2017 Ridgeline

2017 Honda Ridgeline

The all-new 2017 Honda Ridgeline is a unique pickup.

Unique is a word that suffers a lot of misuse in the automotive lexicon.For example, we hear the term “very unique” in connection with some rarefied vehicle.But the fact is the word is absolute, referring to something that's one of a kind.

Thus, in the world of pickup trucks, unique can only be used in connection with the Honda Ridgeline.Returning from the brink of extinction, it's the only unitbody pickup in the business: the chassis is integrated with the body.All the others are body-on-frame: the chassis and body are worked up separately, and …
