2018 Pickup Truck of the Year – Introduction

Ready For Action

It is truly hard to believe that it is that time of year again—time to crown our 2018 Pickup Truck of the Year. What commences on the following pages is the culmination of hundreds of hours of hard work by more than a dozen dedicated people. The days are long and nights longer. We test from sunrise to sunset and sometimes beyond. Our crew works tirelessly in the harshest conditions Mother Nature can dish out, from stifling heat to howling wind and driving rain. Nothing can stop us.
Our judging panel is comprised of some of the most knowledgeable minds in the automotive industry. They come to us with backgrounds in street, off-road, diesel, lifted, lowered, new, and classic trucks. This ensures that our judging staff is just as diverse as the pickups we’re testing. We all eat, sleep, and breathe trucks. At Truck Trend, we pride ourselves on being the definitive authority on all things truck.
For our 2018 Pickup Truck of the Year competition, we invited all models that were either all-new or significantly updated for the ’18 model year and available to us at the time of testing. Six pickups from five manufacturers accepted the invitation.
Each of these pickups brought with it a unique skillset, and they were all impressive to our staff in one area or another. In the end, only one could take home the coveted Billet Piston trophy. The winner showed exceptional performance in each of the tested criteria and never left our panel of judges disappointed. Which pickup scored the highest? Read on to find out.
