The Quickest Pickup Trucks MotorTrend Has Ever Tested

Just because it’s a pickup truck doesn’t mean it needs to be slow. Unladen, many trucks are actually pretty light, giving them a strong power-weight ratio. And while load-hauling low-end torque (and appropriate gearing) is usually the priority for a truck, every now and then, manufacturers endow their most utilitarian offerings with surprising levels of accelerative thrust.

Below is a list of the 12 quickest accelerating production trucks Motor Trend has ever tested. (While most people will turn to the phrase “the fastest trucks,” “fast” alludes to overall speed, while “quickest” refers to acceleration—the focus of this roundup. We’re sticklers.) Peering into our test database, we ranked each truck by its zero-to-60-mph time. If multiple trucks had the same 0-60 time, then the quarter-mile result was the tiebreaker. From big-displacement street trucks to desert-running off-road specials to well-equipped luxury pickups and even an EV, each entry in the top 12 is exceptionally quick for a truck. And some are quick by any standard.
