Pickup trucks are significantly growing in popularity. People are getting very much attracted to these big, burly and tough vehicles recently. Their sales have also increased and have become much easier for people to live with as they are becoming more car-like with improved interiors and features like navigation systems. These trucks can carry tonnes of weight if required to and have heavy duty performance.
