2. 2014 Ram Big Horn Crew Cab
Selling price: $31,459
Everybody made a big deal about the Silverado finally getting an update last year after not changing for nearly a decade. The Ford F-Series just made the auto press swoon on the show circuit just by making a few tweaks that every non-pickup already made.
Where's the obsession about the Ram? Where's the love? On the pages of Motor Trend, which just named it Truck of the Year for 2014. Chrysler's Ram got its last big update in 2009 and the automaker decided it had waited long enough to start tinkering. Those changes were felt as low as the base 1500, which drops from a 3.6L V.6 with 305 horsepower to a slightly more efficient 3.0L V6 diesel with 250 horsepower.The Big Horn, meanwhile, gets 18 miles per gallon in the city and an impressive-for-a-pickup 25 on the highway, leather-wrapped steering wheel and UConnect touchscreen information and entertainment system and impressive perks. It's the Class IV receiver hitch, 10,350 towing capacity and 1,800 pounds of payload that are going to make this extended-cab, short-bed truck the pride of the National Park campsite and big box hardware store parking lot this summer.
