No midsize pickup truck is perfect, but some are better than others.
The Chevy Colorado and its GMC Canyon twin strike a pleasant balance between performance, refinement, and value, but they’re light on crash-avoidance tech.

Look to the Ford Ranger for strong turbo power and a good infotainment system, though its ride is unrefined.
The odd truck out is the SUV-based Honda Ridgeline, which also makes it the most appealing.
