Need a New Truck? Top Truck Models of 2016

Choosing a new vehicle can be a lengthy and stressful process. If you are in the market for a new vehicle, and have many questions circling in your mind, Canada Drives is here to help make your buying process as smooth as possible.

If the model you have your sights set on this year is in fact a pickup truck, here are 3 of the top 2016 truck models that you may want to consider.

1) Ford F-150 Raptor

First up is the highly popular Ford F-150, this truck has been the reigning champion in its field for close to a decade. The 150 Raptor model was introduced back in 2010, and has undergone some impressive improvements in recent years. While it was temporarily discontinued in 2015 and 2016, the new 2017 model is back and is better than ever.

While this vehicle doesn’t exactly count as a 2016 model, it will be unveiled very shortly and if you are in the market for a truck that offers power, durability, and a sleeker, lighter body, then the new 2017 model may attract your attention.

2) Toyota Tacoma

While many of the Toyota cars and SUVs are in high demand across Canada, their mid-sized truck, the Tacoma also dominates in sales among other trucks in its category. Its first generation model was introduced in 1994 and was produced up until 2004. From 2005 and on, the second generation was introduced and is the refined model you see today.

If the Tacoma is a truck you have been considering, here are a few facts and figures to perhaps help you make up your mind. As of 2016, this truck now offers a refined V6 engine, new advanced interior technology, such as a touch screen interface, and the popular off-roading capabilities.

Finally, while you may find that the Tacoma will meet your long-term driving needs, another factor that adds to the popularity of this model is that it is known for having a strong resale value - a highly important factor to consider in any vehicle you are interested in buying.

3) Dodge Ram Rebel

Also among the top pickup truck contenders for 2016, is the Dodge Ram Rebel. Just as the Raptor has become a popular model for the Ford Group, the Rebel is the model that Dodge is presenting as its direct competition. With an upgraded engine and a re-designed exterior, this 2016 Ram truck series offers many new exterior improvements, and has also undergone some interior re-design adjustments.

So, how does this truck stack up against its competition in off-roading abilities? With noticeably large tires, solid horsepower and torque features, the Rebel is likely to serve drivers well in this department. If the Rebel is among your top choice for 2016 truck models, you can compare it to its counterparts and decide for yourself if this vehicle is the one for you.

With so many trucks to choose from, it is best to look further into the specifics of these models - as well as perhaps some other models - to see what will be the best fit for your driving needs.
