Instead of choosing between similarly equipped pickup trucks, the focus of this Shootout is pricing. All the trucks in the competition had to stick to a firm $30,000 budget, leading to significant differences between them.

Five trucks participated in the Shootout:

  • 2011 Chevy Silverado 1500 extended cab
  • 2011 Ford F-150 regular cab
  • 2011 Nissan Titan King Cab
  • 2011 Ram 1500 Quad Cab
  • 2011 Toyota Tundra Double Cab

To see how the trucks fared through a vigorous barrage of testing, including four days of back-to-back driving and a long stint at Ford’s Michigan Proving Grounds, go to PickupTrucks.com.
