CARS.COM — When it comes to pickup truck sales, the Lone Star State is the undisputed king. So to find the undisputed king of pickup trucks, we dusted off our 10-gallon hats, rounded up a posse and moseyed on down to Houston with a team of trucks to test for sister site’s first-ever Texas Truck Showdown. We put competitors from Chevrolet, Ford, GMC, Ram and Toyota through a battery of tests on the track, on the highway, loaded and unloaded, and with trailers in tow to find the toughest truck in Texas.
