Who Makes the Best Full-Size Factory Off-Road Pickup?


We wanted to know which automaker offers the best fullsize factory-built off-road pickup, so to celebrate the arrival of the all-new 2017 Ford F-150 Raptor, we asked all the truckmakers to send us their best big-truck off-road package. The only manufacturer to decline was GM because it's putting the finishing touches on the new mid-size Chevrolet Colorado ZR2 desert runner, set to debut later this year.

We did have six competitors for our upcoming 2017 Monster Factory Off-Road Challenge, all of which offer some pretty good suspension, powertrain and tire technology.

The pickups for this contest were:

We scored each of these players in more than 25 different categories ranging from payload and gross vehicle weight rating capacities to several more that focused on off-road prowess.
