Here Are The Upcoming Pickup Trucks That Will Blow Your Mind!

authorBy Avinaba

Manufacturers are getting ready to release thrilling new pickup vehicles as the pickup truck war intensifies. As the automobile industry transitions to zero-emission fuels, we have observed an increase in electric trucks. An utterly electric EV is one of almost every brand's most well-known nameplates.

With battery-electric propulsion, even industry giants like Ford and General Motors are making a big push. Tech firms and startups looking to enter the market also want a piece of the electric pickup market. But even as EVs continue to proliferate, a sizable number of gas-powered pickup trucks continue to overtake our markets. Here are some of the ten most awesome incoming pickup trucks that we can't wait to get our hands on, ranging from mid-size to full-size to heavy-duty vehicles.

1. 2023 GMC Sierra 1500

The 2023 Sierra (Crew Cab and Regular Cab variants) will begin production on August 29th, according to GMC. The release date for the Double Cab vehicles is one week later, on September 6. Four engines choices are available, one of which is a new 3.0 liter, six-cylinder turbodiesel.

The standard model, which has a turbocharged 2.7-liter four-cylinder engine with 310 horsepower and 430 lb-ft of torque and an eight-speed automatic transmission, and two V8 choices, round out the remaining three (355hp 5.3-liter engine and a 420hp 6.2-liter engine). The Sierra 1500 half-ton has a 13,200-pound towing capacity and a 2240-pound maximum hauling capability.

2. 2022 Chevrolet Silverado ZR2

Chevrolet sorely needed to modernize the Silverado if they were to stay competitive with the other manufacturers (Ram, Ford, and Toyota). And the 2022 Silverado did, in fact, address this problem. Although it isn't as tough as the fast-moving Ram TRX or the F-150, it still has the off-road ability to handle America's most difficult routes.

The 2022 Silverado ZR2 is no ordinary truck, as seen by its jacked-up and aggressive appearance. It is powered by a 6.2-liter V8 engine with a ten-speed automated transmission that generates 420 horsepower and 460 lb-ft of torque. The multimeric spool-valve dampers, which were inspired by Formula 1, are the star of the 2022 model.

3. 2023 Lordstown Endurance

Lordstown is a recent entrant in the expanding market for electric pickup trucks. The American startup had promised an earlier deployment before the GMC Hummer EV, Ford F-150 Lightning, and the Rivian R1T but had to deal with legal issues and financial difficulties that caused the introduction of its first EV truck to be delayed.

Four electric motors positioned on each wheel will power the four-wheel drive system on the 2023 Lordstown Endurance. They will produce 600 horsepower when combined and have a 7,500-pound towing capacity. The truck's maximum range with a 109kWh battery is 250 miles. The beginning of production is anticipated for the third quarter of 2022.

4. 2023 Toyota Tundra

After fourteen years of sales of the same unaltered model, Toyota revamped the full-size Tundra for the 2022 model year. The evolution, high performance, and styling of Toyota vehicles have impressed enthusiasts. The updated 2022Toyota Tundra will be carried over into the 2023 model.

There will be a new SX package with strong redesigned styling, but it will be expensive. Both the conventional 3.5-liter twin-turbocharged V6 engine, which produces 389 horsepower and 479 pound-feet of torque, and the hybrid V6 powertrain are available. The latter produces 437 horsepower and 583 pound-feet of torque. The towing capacity of the 2023 model is 12,000 pounds.

5. 2024 Ram 1500 EV

It will be a game-changer when Ram Trucks introduces its first dedicated EV to the American market, which won't happen for some time. The manufacturer guarantees the EV will have a 500-mile driving range (200 more than the F-150 Lightning) and a towing capacity of at least 10,000 pounds. Other tentative claims include a function for autonomous driving and 150kWh rapid charging rates.

According to RAM, the EV has an advantage over its rivals because it offers a combustion engine range extender as an option. The 2024 manufacturing year appears to be part of Ram Trucks' tactical plan to profit from any mistakes made by its rivals, who will be releasing their full-size EV trucks in 2022 and 2023.

6. 2024 Chevrolet Silverado Electric

Even though the Silverado EV arrived late to the full-size electric pickup party, its design makes it clear that the wait was worthwhile. Regarding EV towing, range, and power, several manufacturers have already established high standards. The Chevrolet Silverado Electric has a towing capability of 10,000 pounds, a range of 400 miles, and 664 horsepower to compete with them.

The base 510hp WT trim will produce 615lb-ft of torque, while the fully equipped 664hp RST trim will produce 780lb-ft of torque when driven in "Wide Open Watts" mode. According to Chevy, the RST accelerates from 0 to 60 mph in less than 4.5 seconds. The WT and RST, on the other hand, have payload ratings of 1200 pounds and 1300 pounds, respectively.

Chevrolet Silverado Cars will be on sale at your local Chevrolet Dealerships.

7. Toyota Hilux GR Sport

Little has changed in the engine. The 2.8-liter engine is still used in the GR Hilux, but it has been tuned to produce 204 horsepower and 369 lb-ft of torque, which are transferred to the ground via a six-speed automated transmission. Its 2,000-pound maximum hauling capacity and 7,800-pound towing capacity remain unaltered. A sportier interior and a custom suspension for improved handling and performance are among the significant changes.

That's right, Gazoo Racing, a group that worked on the creation of the GR Supra, GR Yaris, and the future GR Corolla, has given the renowned and durable Toyota Hilux the Gazoo Racing treatment. This brand-new flagship trim was inspired by the company's victory in the Dakar Rally.

8. 2023 GMC Sierra 1500 EV

GMC hopes to offer two electric pickup truck models for the first time. GMC just published a "Shock and Awe" sneak peek reveal of the 2023 Sierra 1500 EV following the release of the Hummer EV. One thing is for sure: the Sierra EV looks more futuristic than the gas-powered Sierra. Production is scheduled to begin in early 2023.

The 2023 GMC Sierra 1500 EV shares the Chevy Silverado EV's distinctive L-shaped lighting, assertive front end, and turn signals that point in the desired direction. The Ultrium battery packs from General Motors, which are also utilized in the Hummer EV, will power the truck's electric motors.

9. 2022 Volkswagen Amarok

The German automaker revamped the Amarok for the following generation after 12 years with the single goal of providing superior load-carrying capability and accommodations than the model it replaced. Despite having a Ford Ranger foundation, it goes beyond simple rebadging.

Although it shares a body-on-frame base with the Ford Ranger, practically every other component of the two vehicles is different. The Amarok has better off-road capability because it is longer and more durable. There will be four or six-cylinder, 2.0 to 3.0-liter engines available. There are a total of five trim levels, including two top-of-the-line models.

10 . Tesla Cybertruck

When the Cybertruck was revealed in 2019, it sparked enormous enthusiasm all across the world. The alien-like futuristic EV has a design resembling a cross between an F-117 Nighthawk stealth fighter and a Zumwalt stealth destroyer. It has exceptional specifications, armored bodywork, and limitless possibilities.

The inside is brimming with distinctive details and quirky design cues, in contrast to the untamed exterior. Tesla claims that the truck has a 14,000-pound towing capacity on the top tri-motor grade, in addition to an available all-wheel drive. It can accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in 2.9 seconds, and its top speed is restricted to 130 mph. On a full charge, you can travel up to 500 miles. Elon Musk once again pledged a 2023 launch after a number of production setbacks in recent years.

Editor’s Note 

Pickups vary widely in terms of size, cost, fuel efficiency, comfort, performance, safety, and dependability. A few of these elements are related: The trucks with the best fuel efficiency are often lighter, smaller, and equipped with weaker engines. Similarly, we discover that the ride grows worse as a truck's weight increases.

However, because there is something for everyone, there has never been a better time to be in the truck industry. But even though there are more options than ever before, costs have been rising with time.
