With colossal turbo-diesel engines and titanic torque ratings, today’s full-size heavy-duty pickups from Ford, Nissan, Ram and General Motors are in an all-out battle for towing supremacy.
The 2017 Ram 2500 Power Wagon tops the list of capable all-road packages with its legacy nameplate, unmatched strength and comfortable ride.
Toyota’s TRD Pro off-road package on its Tacoma, Tundra and 4Runner SUV adds an impressive dynamic to the trio, and is a favorite among consumers looking for a combination of high-performance, everyday usability and street cred.
Despite success of the 2017 Titan, Nissan has to make the very best pickup truck in the segment if it is going to take on the domestic brands.
Nissan’s 2017 Titan XD effectively fills an empty niche for truck buyers seeking cost and capability somewhere in between the light- and heavy-duty markets.
Already the leader in heavy-duty pickup trucks, Ford’s first complete redesign of its Super Duty line keeps automaker ahead of rival offerings from Chevrolet and Ram.
