While not offering the ultimate hauling capabilities of the biggest trucks, the midsize truck can do enough to suit most needs, be it business or leisure. They also aren’t as cumbersome as full-size trucks, especially since not all driving takes place on the open road. With a bewildering array of options in the pickup truck segment, we’ve rated the most popular midsize trucks based on their performance, practicality, value for money, and how they drive.
As with larger trucks, you’ll have to decide between 4x2 and 4x4, gas or diesel, and whether you’ll be getting a regular cab or a crew cab. That’s a lot to consider, so we’ve outlined the key aspects you need to know about in each review. If you prefer to scan through your options, our vehicle summaries - along with the pros and cons sections - get to the point quickly, while in-depth information provides more context on our scoring. Before you go for that first test drive of a shiny new midsize truck, our rankings can help to guide you in the right direction.
