Here’s Our Ranking of the Best Trucks for the Money

When it comes time to buy a new pickup truck, it’s wise to consider each vehicle on your list in terms of its overall combination of quality and value. This is not an easy task as it requires extensive research to get a solid grasp of this information.

A truck with a low sticker price is not always the best choice. At the same time, paying too much for a truck just because it’s highly rated is not the answer. It’s important to assure that you acquire a truck that offers the performance, features, and dependability you expect while fitting within your budget. To do this, you need to know each competitor’s standard and available features, safety and reliability scores, average transaction prices, and overall costs of ownership.

To save you time and help you make an educated buying decision, we use U.S. News’ Best Cars for the Money methodology to rank each vehicle based on its overall combination of quality and value. Our quality measurement is derived from U.S. News scoring data, which factors in expert reviews from the automotive press, safety scores, and predicted reliability ratings. To assess each car’s value, we rely on TrueCar average transaction prices, as well as Vincentric five-year total cost of ownership data.

Let’s see how these pickup trucks stack up when it comes to their overall combination of value and quality.

Keep in mind that we update our scores often as new expert reviews and data become available. For this reason, the scores in this slideshow may not match the scores in our rankings.
