Luxe trucks are picking up steam (or, well, OK...gas fumes) so get with these beautiful bruisers...if you can.
The sky's the limit for the "Limited" edition of the Ford F-150. With a price north of $60,000 and extras including 22-inch polished aluminum wheels, higher-quality leather interior and 360 camera views, this is one sweet ride.
Just don't spoil the look by putting anything in the back, lest you scratch that pristine paint job. Kidding. This one's tough and beautiful.
The beauty's more than skin deep for the 2016 Limited -- with massaging front seats that make this truck akin to a weekend spa getaway. The amenities don't stop there, with one of the coolest high-tech toys being the computer-aided backup system that works with the simple twist of a knob.
No, this doesn't back up your computer; it backs up your truck. Anyone who's ever had to back up a big-ass trailer will appreciate this digital assist.
Witness the swanky sculptured headlamps, the dazzling chrome grill and accents, and an available power sliding rear window and sun roof. This beauteous brute has all the right touches to take the Sierra Denali from the corral to the concert hall.
In addition to boosting your self esteem, this ravishing ride also has a way to literally boost you as well: a side power step that motors down to help you enter the cab, or load stuff in the back.
If you need a truck that's also a 4G Wi-Fi hotspot (and who doesn't?), this GMC tech powerhouse has got the hookup...not to mention a wireless charging pad for phones and tablets, Apple CarPlay, Bluetooth, smartphone integration and voice command. Go ahead. Order this truck around. It can take it.
If luxe could kill, this drop-dead gorgeous truck would have you laid out on a slab right now. But happily, you're alive to feast your eyes on this luscious hunk, which can not only tow and carry massive loads, but also help you park with an assist system.
The truck also has a nine-speaker sound system, real-wood interior accents, standard 5.7 liter Hemi V8, onboard touch-screen navigation system, Wi-Fi and dual-zone climate control.
Truck yeah! Placate your inner cowboy -- and look like a Texas oil baron while doing it -- in this King Ranch trim version of the Ford F-150. We're talking plush leather, ventilated front seats, retractable power running boards and keyless entry along with ignition. Put the hammer down on a 365-horsepower turbo V6 and kick up some serious dust. Yes, it's good to be the King...Ranch.
Prepare to get your yee-haw on with a Chevy classic that gets down and dirty like a real truck. Because. It. Does. But it's also as modern as all get-out, with Apple Carplay and/or Android Auto for all the apps and smartphone connectivity in case you need to herd cattle in some mobile game.
Or maybe even in real life, thanks to features like forward-collision alert and lane-minding automation. Because you never know when some heifer might cut you off in traffic.
Just because the Chevy Silverado likes to kick it old school by splashing around in the mud and such (see previous slide) doesn't mean it can't be cozy as heck and refined inside, especially with this signature High Country interior. How about heated and cooled premium leather seats, Bose premium audio and front and rear parking assist to ensure a sweet (and safe) ride?
It's called gittin' 'er done. Or just plain cool, if you prefer.
Go big or go home? Why not go big and go home in the 450 version of this powerhouse truck that features a 6.7 liter PowerStroke V8 engine, power everything and a wider backend than its smaller Ford cousins. But it cleans up just as nice, with a sumptuous interior and loads of tech goodies like Wi-Fi, a hi-def 8-inch center stack display and a media hub that includes two USB ports, an SD card reader and audio video input jacks.
This premium truck boasts a 12-speaker JBL audio system and loads of sweet standard equipment, like parking assist sonar, blind spot monitor, power rear window and sleek interior styling. It also doesn't hurt that this luxury beast comes with a 381-horsepower 5.7 liter, V-8 engine, giving you loads of vroom for your bucks.
Toyota's luxury packs are seriously cushy. Premium seating? Check. High end audio from JBL? Check. Integrated navigation? Check.
Toss in a blind-spot monitor, backup camera and rear cross-traffic alert system. With those features, you'll be safe and relaxed wherever you drive your high-end truck.
Now this is some trucky techno-glam. The brand may be the road less traveled compared with all the Fords and Chevys out there, but it's a slick ride that offers more than a fair bit of gussied-up grit...
Remember, Titan's just another word for livin' large, and tech is a big part of all the latest high-end trucks. The Titan lets you geek out with Siri, USB ports, a hands-free phone system, voice recognition, rear view monitor and a 120-volt outlet in the dash to recharge your computer.
Okay, this is kinda cheating, since this is only a "concept car" prototype of the long-rumored Jeep Wrangler pickup, which may actually hit the streets in 2017. We can dream, can't we?
If you're in the market for an overload of refined muscle, you can't go wrong with the Chevy Silverado 3500 HD, which lets you tow and stow just about anything up to the size of, say, Rhode Island. Plus, Chevy's made your truck bed, but you don't have to lie in it -- not when you can stretch out in the comfy backseat of your crew cab to take a disco nap.
In addition to Wi-Fi and the other requisite tech bon-bons, this is one beautiful behemoth with all the V8 vroom you'll ever need.
