Pick up trucks are usually large in size and have open top beds and those who purchase them need to move heavy materials from one place to the other.
1. Toyota Tundra
This pick up truck came out in 2000 and has been a favorite ever since.

It won a prestigious award in 2008 and the company’s manufacturing headquarters are located in Texas.
2. Ford F-Series
F-150 is the most popular model in this category and has remained on top as far as sales are concerned for 3 decades. According to analysts, these pick up trucks account for most of the profits made by the company recently.
3. The Ram
This pick up truck was called Dodge Ram when it first came out and has sold massive volumes every since the beginning of the year. The design has changed as and when the market demands increased or decreased. It has won many awards over the years because it moves smoothly no matter what the nature of the terrain is.
4. Chevrolet Silverado
This model became a part of the market 12 years back. The design is classic and the company has proved that they know what they are doing. Even though it is slightly bulky and heavy duty, it is aimed at a particular category of customers and needless to say, it is doing well.
5. Honda Ridgeline

7. Nissan Frontier
This series was manufactured 12 years back but was discontinued in Japan about 8 years back. However, it still monopolizes the market in North America and Tennessee.

10. Ford Courier
The company is selling massive volumes of this model this year. This is mainly because it offers a lot of storage space and the design is easy to work around with. It was first manufactured in 1952 and is popular because apart from being practical, it also looks good.
