Does Anyone Make a Plain Pickup Truck?

Pickup trucks have been around for decades and have become an icon of American culture. They are seen as the ultimate symbol of ruggedness, capability, and reliability.

While many people associate them with working-class folks and weekend warriors, others see them as a status symbol. As such, many automakers now offer an array of pickups with luxurious features, from heated leather seats to advanced infotainment systems.

But despite all the bells and whistles available in today’s pickups, there are still some who prefer their vehicles to be as basic as possible. For those customers who want nothing more than a truck that does its job and does it well, there are still some options available.

One such model is the Chevrolet Colorado Work Truck. This pickup was designed with simplicity in mind and offers no-frills features like cloth seats and a basic audio system.

The focus here is on function rather than form, with a variety of cargo configurations available to suit any need. The Colorado Work Truck also comes with a 2.5-liter 4-cylinder engine that produces 200 horsepower and 191 lb.-ft. of torque.

Another option is the Nissan Titan XD Pro-4X. This truck comes equipped with the same engine as the Colorado Work Truck but bumps up its power output to 310 horsepower and 555 lb. of torque for even more capability when it comes to hauling cargo or tackling tough terrain. Other features include 17-inch alloy wheels, off-road suspension tuning, skid plates for underbody protection, and fog lights.


So does anyone make a plain pickup truck? Yes! While most modern pickups come loaded with features like heated leather seats and advanced infotainment systems, there are still some trucks out there that focus on function over form – like the Chevrolet Colorado Work Truck or Nissan Titan XD Pro-4X.
