Quick Specs
3.2
A new V-6 gives buyers a reason to shop the 2020 Nissan Frontier this year, but waiting for next year’s redesign is a better idea.
5.2
The 2020 Chevrolet Colorado checks many of the mid-size pickup truck boxes, but leaves safety by the side of the road.
5.0
The 2020 Ford Ranger mid-size pickup is a willing companion to weekend adventures. It’s our worst best friend.
4.8
The 2020 GMC Canyon has its virtues, but its design is beginning to feel old and it hasn’t done well in crash tests.
7.3
The 2020 Honda Ridgeline pick-ups differently; it’s a truck that’s more comfortable and practical than tougher-duty rivals.
5.0
Myriad detail upgrades keep the 2020 Toyota Tacoma competitive in the increasingly competitive mid-size pickup truck market.
