Like most other full-size trucks, there's a Toyota Tundra model for nearly every purpose.
That said, the Nissan Titan is probably the least competitive at this time, with its limited array of models and muscle-car exhaust note.
GM's pickups, the Silverado and Sierra, were last redesigned in 2007 and updated only lightly since, yet they still do alright for ride quality and are offered in seemingly endless configurations.
There's still an available hybrid edition with a complex set of batteries and motors that help these trucks save a little gas.
The Ford F-150 remains a top pick, and its powertrains and in-vehicle technology are among the best.
But for 2013, the Ram 1500 gets a new eight-speed automatic transmission, a new V-6, and an even better cabin--making this the truck to beat for refinement and fuel economy.
