Sometimes, a regular car is not enough for your needs. Sometimes, even a crossover or SUV isn’t enough. Sometimes, a pickup is the only answer. It’s not until you jump in one of these motors that you get to understand the many perks they offer.
Read on to find some of the best pickups available on the market today.
In the simplest terms, a pickup is a light-duty van or truck. It usually has an enclosed cabin for the driver and passengers to sit and a spacious cargo area behind.
Commonly used by all kinds of tradespeople, pickups are strong, reliable vehicles that can last many years. Rarely used for family purposes, pickups usually go through the wars and come out the other side, ready to fight another day.
Pickups are unlike cars or vans in that they feature low sides and an elongated cargo space. Unlike the boot of a car, this space tends to stick out and is uncovered. But, many models come with coverings to keep tools and supplies safe and secure.
Typically, the interior is quite basic and not spacious. Pickups are designed to be workhorses. And that’s just what they are.
One of the main benefits of driving a pickup is that it is typically dependable. Whether you need a vehicle for transporting goods or driving around farmland, a pickup will usually be a good choice. A common myth is that pickups are fuel-guzzling machines but not these days. Many modern versions have fuel-efficient engines that offer excellent performance while enjoying a smaller fuel bill.
These are powerful machines. Their ability to tow just about anything is incredible. Hook up your trailer or a boat for a long road trip and a pickup will generally handle it with ease.
Heavy duty and very safe to drive, pickups have evolved in recent years.

The best pickups act as a bridge between commercial load luggers and passenger practicality. Unlike years ago, modern pickups can be stylish and come with state of the art technologies. Many have gained a reputation for being highly reliable and versatile. Let’s take a look at some below.
The Ford Ranger is the UK’s best selling pickup truck. And, for a very good reason. It is available with a vast selection of powerful engines and its car-like handling comes at a relatively good cost. You can choose between single cabins, extended cabins or double cabins depending on your needs. If passenger space is more important, the Ford Ranger can sacrifice some load bay length instead. The engines are all powerful 2.0-litre turbodiesels with a choice of manual or automatic gearboxes.
Another popular pickup is the Toyota Hilux. This has a reputation for being dependable on the roads with some calling it “invincible.” The interior is comfortable but not necessarily stylish. But, compared to some of its rivals, it is more refined. It’s a joy to handle, especially on tighter roads where pickups can be a little tricky at times. Recent years have seen modifications to its safety systems, styling and chassis to make the Hilux a smooth driving, attractive pickup.
Another strong choice is the Isuzu D-Max which is a true workhorse. With a nice interior and a choice of single or double cabs, this pickup is extremely capable off-road. While it may not be as powerful as some of its competition, its 1.9-litre diesel engine is more than adequate for daily use.
