Modern pickups can do it all. They can carry heavy payloads, tow large trailers, and tackle challenging off-road conditions. And the same vehicles can turn around and be comfortable, feature-packed commuter cars. What’s more, they can even drive themselves — at least to some extent.
While fully autonomous driving is still likely years away, most of today’s pickups already handle many driving tasks for you. Useful semi-autonomous features you can buy today include adaptive cruise control, which maintains a minimum distance from the car in front of you even as it changes speed; automatic emergency braking, which slams the brakes by itself if it detects a likely collision; blind-spot monitoring, which alerts you if you might be changing lanes into another vehicle; lane-departure warnings, which alert you if you drift over the line; and lane-keeping assistance, which autonomously makes steering corrections to keep you in place. Here are 10 great pickups that include these useful technologies.
