Fast Trucks Friday: Pickups feel the need, the need for speed
2 days ago
ProPickup magazine’s editors test drive every new full-size pickup that hits the market and evaluates them based on their performance related to the world of heavy construction and professional landscaping.
Towing ability, fuel economy, comfort and reliability weigh heavily in the evaluations.
From those driving experiences, ProPickup’s editorial staff selects one light-duty and one heavy-duty truck to receive the publication’s highest honor: ProPickup of the Year.
This year’s winner in the heavy-duty category: the GMC Sierra 2500HD.
“This year’s winners reflect what professional contractors want in a work truck: a balance of power, comfort, fuel economy, function and style,” says ProPickup’s founding editor, Bruce Smith.
