Pickup trucks have been a staple in the Canadian automotive industry. They combine utility, configurability and durability – making it obvious why these vehicles are a popular choice amongst Canadians. Pickup trucks hold four spots in the top 10 most purchased vehicles of 2019 and accounted for a little over 20 per cent of new vehicle sales in 2019. In particular, small pickups experienced a 9.7 per cent increase in sales while large pickup sales experienced virtually no change. In 2019, we have seen Jeep unveil the Gladiator and Ford reintroduce the Ranger into their lineups as manufacturers continue to grow this segment.

We’ve featured some of our favourite offers on 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.
