Towing a trailer is something few people think about until they are faced with the prospect of having to actually do it. Whether you've got a boat that you need to take to the lake, a trailer to haul for work, or just want to have the ability to tow what you want, when you want, you need to know what truck models offer you the best performance. What goes into selecting the best towing vehicles for 2010?
In order to make this list, each vehicle had to have a long list of specific characteristics. Towing capacity is a vital consideration with any truck purchase, whether you plan to tow something or not. You'll also find that trucks need to have some other benefits to make them worth owning. There's no point in purchasing a truck with the highest towing capacity on the market, only to find out that the truck breaks down every other week.
Our list of trucks includes some of the most powerful domestic offerings, though a few lightweight pickups that we felt offered some impressive performance specs did make the list, as well. Another factor that you'll find throughout our picks is that each one makes ownership an affordable situation in one way or another.
Making this list was not a simple task. Numerous considerations have to be made to rank a large truck, or even a light truck, for that matter. Each of our picks was based on detailed comparisons between various makes and models on the market, in order to ensure that you have the information needed to make the best decision possible.
We of course looked at performance. However, we focused on reliability, towing capacity, torque output, warranty, operational and ownership costs and even the number of packages available as well.
