Consumers' Favorites: Best Pickup Truck


Still on top of the mountain — it's been the best-selling vehicle for most of the last three decades — the versatile Ford F-150 rolled over its rivals with 35 percent of the vote. The powerful Toyota Tundra, which offers a massive crew-cab body style, took 2nd place with 12 percent. Nipping at the Tundra's tires, the 3rd-place finisher went to the last of the truly compact pickups, the long-in-the-tooth but still loved Ford Ranger with 11 percent.

See how the rest of the field did in the full results below and make sure to exercise your right to vote in our next Consumers' Favorites poll.

  1. Ford F-150

    1. Ford F-150

    What Edmunds.com says:
    The 2011 Ford F-150 is an excellent all-around truck, and even more so this year thanks to its more powerful engine choices.

  2. Toyota Tundra

    2. Toyota Tundra

    What Edmunds.com says:
    Even though its rivals have all received makeovers recently, the 2011 Toyota Tundra's strong powertrains, spacious cabs and excellent towing ability make it a top choice for a workhorse pickup.

  3. Ford Ranger

    3. Ford Ranger

    What Edmunds.com says:
    The 2011 Ford Ranger may have an affordable starting price and decent fuel economy going for it, but its dated design and cramped passenger cabin just can't compete with its more modern rivals.

  4. Toyota Tacoma

    4. Chevrolet Silverado/GMC Sierra

    What Edmunds.com says:
    The 2011 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 is a worthy choice for a full-size pickup thanks to its wide range of body styles, capable performance and comfortable ride.

  5. Dodge Ram

    5. Dodge Ram

    What Edmunds.com says:
    The 2011 Dodge Ram 1500 is a top pick in the full-size pickup truck segment thanks to its winning combination of strong performance, smooth ride and a classy cabin.

  6. Toyota Tacoma

    6. Toyota Tacoma

    What Edmunds.com says:
    The 2011 Toyota Tacoma is a top choice in the midsize pickup segment thanks to its highly capable nature and wide array of configurations.

  7. Honda Ridgeline

    7. Honda Ridgeline

    What Edmunds.com says:
    The 2011 Honda Ridgeline doesn't have the muscle that serious truck buyers demand, but its combination of a carlike ride and pickup utility make it all the pickup many buyers will ever need.

  8. Chevrolet Avalanche

    8. Chevrolet Avalanche

    What Edmunds.com says:
    Thanks to its practical midgate configuration, the 2011 Chevrolet Avalanche is an ideal crew-cab pickup for carrying a combination of passengers and cargo.

  9. Nissan Titan

    8. Nissan Titan

    What Edmunds.com says:
    The 2011 Nissan Titan is a good truck, but it's getting long in the tooth. Other full-size trucks outdo the Titan in just about every area.

  10. Cadillac Escalade EXT

    10. Cadillac Escalade EXT

    What Edmunds.com says:
    The Cadillac Escalade EXT owns the full-size luxury sport-utility-truck segment with its distinctive style, luxurious appointments, versatility and commanding V8 performance. Then again, it's the only full-size, luxury sport-utility truck.

  11. Ford Explorer Sport Trac

    11. Nissan Frontier/Suzuki Equator

    What Edmunds.com says:
    The 2011 Nissan Frontier is a top pick in the compact-pickup segment thanks to its brawny nature, relatively nimble handling and innovative features.

  12. Chevrolet Colorado

    12. Chevrolet Colorado/GMC Canyon

    What Edmunds.com says:
    The 2011 Chevy Colorado suffers from an aging design and lags behind the competition in passenger comfort and overall refinement.

  13. Dodge Dakota

    13. Dodge Dakota

    What Edmunds.com says:
    When it comes to towing, the 2011 Dodge Dakota is still top dog among midsize pickups. Unfortunately, the competition trounces the Dakota when it comes to affordability and refinement.
