If you are in the market for a new truck, you probably want something that will be sturdy, reliable, and maintain it’s value. A new pickup truck isn’t the time to test out a new fad! You need this truck to work hard, and look great doing it. With that in mind, let’s look at some of the most popular trucks of all time. If a truck has been going strong for decades, you can bet it will do the same for you.


#1 Chevrolet Silverado. Let’s face it, when you think of a truck, you think of a Chevy! The Chevy Silverado is one of the best trucks ever made, thanks to its engine, horsepower, towing and hauling capacity, and good looks. In fact, according to Edmunds, the small-block V8 originally designed by Chevy for this truck is the most popular American truck engine of all time.

#2 Dodge Ram. Can a pickup truck actually be fast? If the truck in question is a Dodge Ram, then yes! In fact, some Dodge Ram’s are built with the same V10 engine that a Dodge Viper shares. That is some serious power to get your truck moving quickly!

#3 Ford F-150. The F-150 was the first “beautiful” truck. It was released in a time that trucks were only for work, and never to haul families around. The F-150 changed all of that by making a truck that people actually wanted to ride around in, even after the work day was finished.

#4 Ford Raptor. Sometimes, you need a truck to do some serious offroading, and that is exactly what the Raptor was made for. Can a truck look great, while still being seriously capable? The Ford Raptor thinks so, and so do its owners!

#5 Chevrolet Suburban. Talk about a truck that can do it all! The Chevy Suburban is the forefather of all modern SUVs, and built on a truck frame. So, yes- it is a truck, technically, but also so much more. It can seat the entire family, plus haul the boat to the lake with no problem.  It’s no wonder this vehicle has been one of GM’s most popular and in production for over 80 years!

It’s clear to see from this list how truly great the lineup of trucks has been over the years from Chevy, Buick, and GMC. What is even more exciting is that Nesmith has the newest models of these trucks available right here in Claxton, for very affordable prices. Are you ready to purchase a brand new truck?
