Full-size pickup trucks are popular for good reason: they’re just so useful. Over the years, big pickups have learned to work harder while becoming more refined.

2021 Ram 1500
Starting Price: $36,740 | Rating 4.5
The biggest change to the Ram line is the addition of the TRX model. With more than 700 horsepower under the hood, the TRX is the most powerful half-ton truck on the market. It’s designed for high-speed, high-performance off-road adventures, and enters the market as a strong competitor to the Ford Raptor.

2021 Chevrolet Silverado 1500
Starting Price: $36,495 | Rating 4.3

GMC calls it the MultiPro tailgate, while with the Silverado it’s called the Multi-Flex tailgate. This tailgate converts into stairs for easier bed loading or into a desk for job sites. Additionally, Chevy introduced a regular cab/long-bed version of its Silverado with rear-wheel drive. Though not likely to be a popular combination, the specific body style can tow as much as 9,600 pounds.
