Detailed Information of Most Expensive Pickup Trucks in 2021
10. Ford Ranger Lariat
The Ford Ranger Lariat shares the same 2.3-liter turbocharged four-cylinder and 10-speed automatic transmission with the rest of the Ranger lineup. The lack of engine choices could be a serious demerit for the Ranger, though the motor delivers plenty of power and torque when you need it. At roughly $7,000 more than the entry-level Ranger, the Lariat comes with features like an 8-inch touch screen, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, leather seating, power-adjustable front seats, heated front seats, and choice of rear- or four-wheel drive.
While it doesn’t have the bells and whistles found on some other trucks, the Ranger is agile, powerful, and even surprisingly good when it comes to fuel mileage.
9. Nissan Frontier Pro-4X
There’s no denying it: The 2020 Nissan Frontier is an ancient truck. However, some of us think that the blocky, butch styling is still best-in-class, particularly compared to the soft Ford Ranger and the cloyingly aggressive Chevy Colorado Z71. In Pro-4X form, the Frontier comes equipped with purposeful Hankook Dynapro AT tires mounted on 16-inch aluminum wheels, giving it a trail-ready appearance that is a testament to design simplicity. Even after all this time, the Frontier looks good because it has resisted trends that become tacky within a few years.
There wasn’t that much wrong with the outgoing 4.0-liter V6 engine found in the 2005 to 2019 Frontier. The ancient mill was gutsy down low, which made it ideal for truck duty compared to the peaky, rev-happy 3.6-liter V6 in the Colorado and the torque-light 3.5-liter V6 in the Tacoma. But the 3.8-liter six found in the 2020 Frontier is still an improvement over its predecessor. Direct injection provides both better power and efficiency, and torque is unchanged (and very nearly best-in-class). Conspiring with an intelligent nine-speed automatic transmission, the new V6 makes the Frontier feel light on its feet when the light turns green.
On-road handling leaves quite a bit to be desired, with some worrisome sway appearing on the highway when encountering an expansion joint or pothole. However, when the pavement goes away altogether, the Frontier Pro-4X comes alive. Its trim-specific shock absorbers do a masterful job of handling swift dirt roads and bumpy trails with equal aplomb, and there’s plenty of ground clearance and suspension travel.
8. GMC Canyon Denali

The general rule of thumb is that GMC pickup trucks are slightly more posh and luxurious than their mechanically-identical Chevrolet twins. This holds true with the GMC Canyon Denali, a compact pickup that shares the same chassis and powertrain with the Chevrolet Colorado.
The Denali trim automatically comes in Crew Cab format and is powered by a 308-horsepower 3.6-liter V6 coupled to an eight-speed automatic and choice of rear- or all-wheel drive.
Standard features on the Denali include unique exterior trim and wheel designs, leather seating, heated and ventilated front seats, a Bose audio system, wireless charging, Wi-Fi hot spot and more.
7. Chevrolet Colorado ZR2

Unlike the comfort-oriented route taken by the GMC Denali, the top model in the Chevrolet Colorado lineup is geared towards serious off-road driving. The Colorado ZR2 not only looks the part of a go-anywhere truck, it has features that make it ideally tuned for unpaved adventures.
In addition to four-wheel drive and a choice of 181-horsepower turbo-diesel four-cylinder or 308-horsepower V6 under the hood, the ZR2 comes with full-adjustable front and rear locking differentials, hill descent control, underbody skid plates, raised suspension, and all-terrain tires. In terms of luxury trimmings, the ZR2 comes with leather-appointed front seats, heated steering wheel, Bose audio system, and an onboard Wi-Fi hot spot.
6. Honda Ridgeline Black Edition
When it comes to car-like ride and handling, the Honda Ridgeline steps to the front of the line. From behind the steering wheel, you might not even realize you’re driving a full-size pickup. The cabin has a well-engineered look and high-quality feel to it, accentuated by nimble steering and a remarkably smooth ride.
The one area the Ridgeline falls short is in towing and hauling capacity, it lags behind segment leaders from Ford, Chevy, Ram, and Toyota. Powered by a 280-horsepower V6, this Honda truck’s sole available engine, the Ridgeline Black Edition is primarily a cosmetic package that includes black wheels, black exterior paint, and unique leather trim inside. It also includes comfort touches like a cargo bed audio system, moonroof, heated front seats, and power sliding rear window.
5. Jeep Gladiator Rubicon

The Jeep brand is synonymous with off-roading and venturing off the beaten path. With this in mind, it shouldn’t be a surprise that the range-topping model in the Gladiator pickup maintains this tradition.
In the Rubicon trim, the Gladiator comes with off-road features that are not available in lower trims. In addition it’s equipped with 33-inch tires and premium cloth upholstery. It features a 7-inch touch screen, Apple CarPlay, and Android Auto. Powering the Gladiator Rubicon is a 3.6-liter V6 that sends 285 horsepower to all four wheels courtesy of a six-speed manual transmission (an eight-speed automatic transmission is available).
4. Toyota Tacoma TRD Pro

The first of two Toyota trucks to make an appearance here, the Tacoma TRD Pro, offers a long list of convenience features and features necessary hardware for rock-crawling drives.
The TRD Pro comes with its own suspension tuning, a modified exhaust system, special shocks, underbody skid plate, surround-view monitor, and LED fog lights. Inside, the TRD has its own trim-specific materials, while standard features include leather seating, moonroof, JBL audio system, dual-zone climate control, and heated front seats.
The TRD Pro also comes with the optional 278-horsepower V6 engine instead of the anemic base four-cylinder, plus four-wheel drive and a six-speed automatic transmission.
3. Chevrolet Silverado 1500 High Country

The Chevrolet Silverado has often played runner-up to the Ford F-150 when it comes to full-size pickup truck sales. As one of the F-150’s fiercest rivals, the Silverado offers a similarly expansive options sheet and models that range from no-frills work trucks, to rolling luxury barges.
Sitting atop the Silverado 1500 lineup is the High Country trim. Starting around $53,300 and offered in Crew Cab format with a choice of two cargo beds. Standard features include heated and ventilated front seats, heated steering wheel, heated rear seats, leather seating, Bose stereo, and 8-inch touch screen. There are three choices of engine, a 5.3-liter V8, 6.2-liter V8, and 3.0-liter turbo-diesel six-cylinder. Of the three, the 6.2-liter V8 offers the greatest towing capacity.
2. Nissan Titan Platinum Reserve

Coming close to the top, the Nissan Titan Platinum Reserve certainly has a suitably rich-sounding name. There is only one engine offered in the Titan, a stout 400-horsepower V8 coupled to a nine-speed automatic transmission and rear- or four-wheel drive.
The Platinum Reserve justifies its price by ladeling on almost every available option, such as heated and ventilated front seats, leather seating, heated rear seats, a wood and leather steering wheel, Fender audio system, power sliding rear window, 9-inch touch screen, and dual zone climate control.
The Titan is easy to drive, thanks to its direct steering, though the cabin materials and design doesn’t match rivals from Ford, Chevrolet, and especially Ram.
1. Ford F-150 Limited

Coming in at nearly $68,000, the Ford F-150 Limited is a pickup truck with a lot to prove. But the best-selling pickup truck in the U.S. must be doing something right, even when the sticker price looks like it belongs on a BMW or Mercedes-Benz.
Offered with the Super Crew cabin and five-foot six-inch cargo bed, one of the few available choices is whether you prefer rear- or four-wheel drive. Motivated by a 450-horsepower twin-turbo V6, the F-150 Limited includes a surround-view camera, heated and ventilated front seats, massaging front seats, heated rear seats, dual-pane moonroof, and active park assist. Another extra, leather and wood trim is used liberally throughout the cabin.
There is also a laundry list of tech touches, such as an 8-inch touch screen, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, a Wi-Fi hot spot, and wireless device charging. In terms of opulent pickup interiors, only the Ram 1500 currently does it better than this elegant F-150.
