The increasing pressure of fuel-economy standards combined with the proliferation of practical electric vehicles has shifted the collective focus of the automotive industry towards a vision of conservation and efficiency. This trend of efficiency has also permeated the pickup category. Automakers have introduced highly capable motors in diminutive packages, such as Ford’s 2.7-litre EcoBoost, or efficiency-boosting technology like Active Fuel Management in Chevrolet trucks. These advancements are making it ever more feasible for pickups to be used as daily drivers, with comfortable crew cabs offering seating capacity that rivals SUVs, but with greater hauling capability.

While 2020 models are steadily taking up an increasing portion of dealerships’ lots across the country, automakers are offering highly attractive incentives on remaining 2019 inventory. We’ve featured some of our favourite offers this week on 2019 model-year pickup trucks. If you don’t find an offer that suits you, be sure to check out the Globe Drive Build and Price Tool to see the latest incentives and discounts on any new car, truck or SUV .
