It’s a new year and excitement is building around the 2022 crop of pick-up trucks. From all new fully electric models to completely redesigned classic nameplates, there is a lot happening in the world of trucks this year. Here we break down the 15 best trucks for 2022 and why consumers should be excited about them.
15. Rivian R1T
Starting Price: $67,500
Most readers will likely be familiar with the Rivian R1T electric truck. It’s the first mass-produced electric pick-up truck to hit the market, and it’s been winning praise from critics for its driving ability and appearance. The front end looks a bit futuristic but there’s no denying that this truck is unique inside and out and unlike any other truck currently on the market.
MotorTrend magazine took an R1T on a cross-country trek and named it the “Truck of the Year,” saying that this is the electric truck that changes everything going forward. Only time will tell how the R1T will be received by consumers and how it will hold up in real-world conditions as it exits the prototype phase and enters mass production but this is definitely one pick-up to watch.
