Top 10 Best New Trucks To Purchase
Since SUVs and pickups prioritized comfort and fuel economy vehicles they became the hottest and most sought after automobiles in the industry. Below are top ten best new trucks to purchase;
1. Chevrolet Colorado:
The Colorado received a few substantial upgrades for 2016. The Colorado’s Duramax diesel and smaller size give it a perfect fuel efficiency of all trucks in the market, with its 22 city mpg, as well as 31 highway mpg and 25 mpg, pooled. The Duramax provides 181 horsepower, and 369 pound-feet of torque. Also, it offers a 7,700-pound tow rating. All the amazing features make the vehicle cost efficient at $37,000.
2. Chevrolet Silverado:
The Chevrolet Silverado was remodeled in 2014, but also got a new grille for the 2016 model that features beautiful LED lighting on some premium models such as High Country and the LTZ. Talking of premium trim, the Silverado is one of the few remaining large trucks which have a full-tilt luxury version. With the 2014 redesign, the new High Country trim came into existence. The 2016 version has got cool features such as wireless phone charging, power retracting running boards, and 4G LTE Wi-Fi. It’s also got the Apple CarPlay integrated mobile phone interface. The Silverado costs $53,000.
3. Ford F-Series
The F-150, in particular, was new last year, so advancements for the 2016 model are relatively inconsequential. The 2016 Ford’s best-seller offers an exclusive trailer back-up system which makes backing up as easy as turning a door knob. Ford also provides a 360-degree camera system to make that the truck is placed where the rider wants it, including tight spaces. The 2016 F-150 XLT has a fuel-efficient 2.7-liter V6 engine as well as Pro Trailer Backup Assist, and stowable loading ramps for about $37,000.
4. GMC Canyon
The Canyon truck is GMC’s version of the Colorado from Chevrolet midsize truck. This implies that it also has the 2.8-liter Duramax engine for 2016. The color-matched grille on the truck is unarguably its best feature. The trim comes with a 2.5-liter inline four engine that still produces 200 horsepower with 191 pound-feet of torque. This Canyon has all that for less than $35K.
5. GMC Sierra
GMC is not new to the first-class truck market. It has been offering the classy Denali model of its Sierra for years. Like most GMC merchandises, the Denali version sells well. The 2016 GMC also provides a “Sierra Elevation model”. The choice of engine is either the 5.3 liter V8 or the 4.3-liter V6 engine, in four or two-wheel drive.
6. Honda Ridgeline
The Honda Ridgeline has not sold in high numbers even though it has several features you cannot find in any open-bed vehicle. Its combination of fuel efficiency, handling and an exclusive “trunk” for weather proof storage under the bed are enough to justify the price of this midsize truck. Honda will be announcing an all-new version of this Ridgeline soon, and as it’s based on the new 2015 Pilot.
7. Nissan Titan
Just like Honda, Nissan has tried to find a market for the full-size Titan. The 2016 Titan has an XD version which is between light-duty pickups and heavy duty trucks. The Titan XD offers a Cummins 5.0-liter diesel engine with 310 horsepower and also 555 pound-feet of torque. The vehicle also offers trailer aids such as trailer sway control, integrated brake control, and downhill speed control as well as engine braking. It’s not cheap at the price of $52,000, but its price is justified.
Talking of off-road, the Ram offers a broad range of trucks for almost every occasion, but the 2500 Power Wagon version specializes in going off the road. It comes in the “Tradesman” form, which is fundamentally a no-frills, fleet-oriented model, or the more upscale Power Wagon with a 6.4-liter Hemi and V8 6-foot bed. The Hemi provides the pulling power a rider could ever want at 9,790-pound tow rating. The truck is an off-road monster and is also comfortable and refined on the road for about $50,000.
9. Toyota Tacoma
The Tacoma has enjoyed a leading position in this midsize truck segment for a long time. However, with GM joining in last year, and Honda joining in this year, this new Tacoma faces some new challenges. The 3.5-liter V6 produces 278 horsepower with 265 pound-feet of torque and costs around $35,000.
10. Toyota Tundra
Just like Nissan, Toyota is not selling as many full-size trucks as the domestic rivals. The Tundra offers a desirable configuration if upscale off-roading is the rider’s idea of a good time. The top-of-the-line Tundra can be joined with the TRD off-road package, which includes 18-inch wheels with Michelin LTX tires, skid plates, and trail-tuned Bilstein shocks. At $50,000 it isn’t cheap, but compared to most premium-trim trucks, this truck with TRD features is a bargain.
