Got money to burn? Take a look at these pickup trucks that push the limits of luxury, performance, capability, and style.
Ford Raptor — $52,855
Ford has been dominating the pickup market with its 2019 Ford F-150, and the awesome Ford Raptor is the F-150 on steroids. This massive beast of a truck pumps out an astonishing 450 hp from a 3.5-liter V6 EcoBoost engine, all while still getting 18 miles per gallon on the highway. It is also equipped with all the best amenities from its military-grade aluminum frame to pro trailer backup assist and roll stability.
The Ford Raptor may be the F-150 equivalent of a sports car, but that doesn’t mean Ford skimped on the safety. The Ford Raptor has a five-star NHTSA safety award and it is an IIHS Top Safety Pick. The number of safety awards the Raptor has is ironic considering it is pretty much designed to test the limits of what an off-road truck is capable of both on and off the pavement. Despite its useful size, the Ford Raptor can go from 0-60 miles per hour in just over five seconds.
Dodge Ram 3500 Laramie Longhorn — $57,240
Dodge hasn’t always been known for quality, but they do make well-rounded trucks. The Dodge Ram 3500 Laramie Longhorn is the culmination of everything Dodge has learned over the years rolled into one stunning pickup truck. It boasts a 6.7-Liter I-6 Cummins turbodiesel and FCA’s AISIN six-speed automatic transmission. It comes with a 4×4 configuration on 20-inch aluminum wheels and the Laramie Longhorn has all the popular features including auto-leveling rear air suspension.
There are also a total of six different trims to choose from including the Tradesman, SLT, Big Horn, Laramie, Laramie Longhorn, and the Limited. The truck feels like it rides on air with rear auto-level air suspension. It also has a neat camera angle facing the bed giving you a bird’s eye view on your cargo at all times.
GMC Sierra 1500 Denali — $61,700
Next up in the list is also one of the classiest trucks on the list, the 2019 GMC Sierra 1500 Denali. GMC offers its most stunning truck yet with the Denali Ultimate package. An improved body style and more subtle extrusions make the Sierra 1500 look like a truck from the future. The Denali Ultimate package costs an additional $6,700 on top of the $55,000 price tag.
This truck is a 4×4 beast with 22-inch aluminum wheels with chrome inserts and many more extras. The eight-speed automatic transmission is smooth as butter with a 5.3-liter EcoTec3 V8 engine that still manages to get up to 20 miles per gallon on the highway. The 5.3-liter EcoTec3 V8 pumps out an impressive 420 horsepower.
Inside you will find a beautifully designed interior with subtle stitching in the leather and a multi-color heads up display that can show things like speed and rpm without even having to take your eyes off the road.
Ford F—350 Platinum – $63,000
The Ford F-350 Platinum was aptly named and although it may not have made of any real platinum, it is certainly loaded with stylish chrome trim. The F-350 Platinum was designed as a full-size luxury pickup truck that would be the envy of every neighbor. It comes with a 6.2-Liter V8 four-valve Power Stroke diesel with a TorqShift six-speed transmission and an optional fifth wheel towing package. It is loaded with Ford Telematics, power moonroof, collision sensors, inflatable seat belts, and more luxurious amenities. It isn’t cheap and if you want luxury and power in the same truck, the Ford F-350 Platinum has you covered but it is going to cost you. $63,000 to be exact, and if you want to add the fifth wheel option, you could be looking at even more.
Chevrolet Silverado 3500HD High Country — $69,045
Topping the list is the biggest truck Chevrolet has to offer, which is the Silverado 3500 HD High Country and it even has an extra set of wheels. This massive truck is easy on the eyes with modern styling and a front bumper and grille that rival a semi-truck in size. But if you are going to get the Silverado 3500HD High Country, you better be prepared to fork out nearly $70,000.
The Silverado 3500HD High Country has a Duramax 6.6-Liter turbodiesel V8, allowing it to pull a massive 35,000 pounds thanks to its newly designed reinforced frame. The 6.6-liter engine offers 445 horsepower to those who need some real towing capability and almost 1,000 pounds per foot of torque. This giant truck weighs in at over 7,700 pounds, more than the weight of two Honda Civics combined.
