Business or pleasure? Yes.

For building a country or towing a boat, nothing beats a full-size truck. Even as they grow increasingly capable in all their roles, trucks are also getting more comfortable, more efficient and more enjoyable to drive.

And while the 2018 model year brought its share of upgrades, the 2019 model year is going to be a big one. The 2019 Chevrolet Silverado and 2019 Ram 1500 were recently revealed to the world at the Detroit Auto Show, each of them significantly and impressively redesigned. (The 2019 Ford Ranger also debuted in Detroit, marking Ford's return to the midsize truck segment.)

As for all the trucks you can buy today, we've driven every one of them. So which ones do we recommend? That depends on your individual needs, wants and preferences, but everything required to make the right decision is here at your fingertips.
