Pickups at the 2013 Chicago Auto Show
Pickup trucks have long been an American icon. As the world moved to smaller and less-powerful haulers, America instead beefed up and we proudly produce some of the most powerful trucks on the road. Take, for example, the new Dodge Ram Heady Duty. Its maximum towing capacity is a whopping 18,350 pounds.
But today’s pickups aren’t just about brawn, they are about comfort and capability as well. All models offer roomy crew cab options with four conventional doors and seating for five or six passengers. Many have innovative storage options with in-bed side-saddle trunks and flip and fold seats.
Then there’s the unique Chevrolet Avalanche and Cadillac Escalade EXT twins. They too offer a conventional pickup bed but a unique passthrough behind the rear seats allows the owner to extend the pickup bed into the passenger compartment.
Whatever your flavor, there is a pickup for you on the show floor. You can find the following pickup trucks on display at the 2013 Chicago Auto Show or at the Vehicles on Display section of the auto show Web site.
