Torrance, CA (PRWEB) November 14, 2013
Is there any segment that has evolved more in the past ten years than pickup trucks? Probably not, and this current crop may be the absolute best the auto industry has ever seen. With several brands introducing brand new models and others bringing out all the stops to compete, autoMedia.com has released a new list called the 10 Top Pickup Trucks To Buy In 2014 that highlights the top choices for any buyer.
No longer the bare bones workhorses that stuck to farms and construction sites for decades, pickup trucks are now some of the most well-rounded and even luxurious vehicles on the market. Of course, they haven’t lost any of the capability that made them so popular in the first place. But a new focus on becoming more car-like has increased their appeal, and the pickup trucks on this list are atop the bunch.
The new autoMedia.com article dissects the pickup truck segment to name the ten best vehicles that deliver performance and utility, keep their passengers safe and boast surprising technology and safety features that would have been unheard of just a few years ago.
“This is a truly exciting time for the pickup truck market, and our new list reflects the remarkable change that has occurred as a result,” said autoMedia.com Founder and CEO Doug Hamlin. “Trucks are more powerful, agile and fuel efficient than ever before, and buyers are bound to find one that suits their needs on this list. Then they can use the autoMedia.com New Cars buying guide to research the truck they like, and even request a quote.”
The list features a few industry stalwarts and imports still trying to make a name, as well as previewing upcoming models that are keeping the competition on edge.
Atop the list are the three usual suspects. Ford has two entries with their own F-150 Tremor and the deliciously devious Shelby F-150 Raptor. The new Chevrolet Silverado and its brother the GMC Sierra are an easy choice, and the Ram 1500 may have the best overall package with a brand new engine on the way.
They face stiff competition, though, from the likes of the Honda Ridgeline making one last hurrah, plus the Nissan Titan and Toyota Tundra throwing their hats into the ring. The compact truck market is dominated by the Nissan Frontier and Toyota Tacoma, but they are gearing up for the return of the Chevrolet Colorado next year.
“There is a lot to choose from, and autoMedia.com is here to help pickup buyers make the right decision,” said Hamlin.
