Our Top 5 Best Pickups To Drive In 2020

Pick Up a Pickup TODAY from Flexed on a Short Term Lease!


The Pickup

A pickup truck or pickup is a light-duty vehicle with an enclosed cab up front and an open cargo area to the rear with low sides and a tailgate.

Once used purely for carrying work-related heavy items in the back that could be reached with ease compared to using a traditional small, medium, or large-sized van, the pickup is now driven by people who simply love it for its looks and because they enjoy driving one.

An old Toyota pickup at Denbies Vineyard near to Dorking, Surrey – the pickup truck is a tough, robust workhorse that’s been around for years!

The pickup truck is still used by farmers up and down the countryside and that’s because they’re tough enough to tackle even the muddiest of fields and tracks, whilst having space in the back to throw in whatever is needed to get the jobs done and with ease, thanks to its low sides and drop-down rear tailgate.

Here in the UK however, the pickup has become increasingly popular, not just with those who need it for carrying bulky, heavy loads but simply as a daily vehicle to drive instead of your everyday run-of-the-mill car.

They appeal to those drivers who refuse to get behind the wheel of yet another SUV and much prefer the rugged good looks and workhorse styling that a pickup has to offer.

The enclosed cab in a modern pickup is just as comfortable and spacious as a traditional car, with seats in the back for extra passengers, plus all the mod-cons feature too such as cruise control, reversing camera, Bluetooth® connectivity, and so on…

And of course, if you own a caravan or use a trailer on a regular basis, the pickup is made for towing.

Our Top 5 Best Pickups In 2020:

1. Mitsubishi L200 – one of the most common pickups to be spotted on UK roads and it’s easy to understand why. The L200 looks great, performs amazingly well, and has enough room to carry children in the back and heavy loads in the open cargo area.

Its off-road ability is super impressive but its performance on everyday roads is just as notable.

2. Nissan Navara – yet another pickup that has captured the hearts of the British motoring public, thanks once again to looking spectacular and performing fantastically well.

There’s room in the back of the cab for full-size grown-ups to enjoy a comfortable ride, whilst the low-ratio gearbox makes off-roading a spectacular experience.

3. Toyota Hilux – it is one of the best selling trucks in the world and has confirmed itself as the icon of the pickup world.
