Are you in the market for a brand-new car capable of providing towing services? Luckily, many upcoming releases of popular automobiles are perfect for your needs.
Here are the best work and utility pickup trucks for 2023.
The Nissan Frontier doesn’t excel in one particular area – instead, it provides suitable performance and comfort overall, making it an affordable and convenient working pickup. With a sticker price of $29,190 (King Cab), you get a 3.8-liter V6 engine, 310 horsepower, 1,610 pounds of payload capacity, and 6,720 pounds of towing capacity. As a financial bonus, the Frontier also gets 18/24 miles per gallon! The downsides of this vehicle include a slow zero to 60 time (7.8 seconds) and a tight cabin.
Hyundai Santa Cruz
The 2023 Hyundai Santa Cruz is not as powerful as the Nissan Frontier – the Santa Cruz maxes out at 5,000 pounds of towing capacity. However, this vehicle is significantly more technologically advanced than others in its class. While smaller than others, the pickup bed boasts useful utility storage amenities and features. Plus, the interior is exceptionally comfortable and user-friendly, leading to a more enjoyable driving experience. With price tags ranging from $25,450 to $40,320, this pickup is perfect for someone who doesn’t need a performance beast with off-roading capabilities.
The Jeep Gladiator is perhaps the most fun and unique utility pickup on this list. Once an abandoned model line, Jeep brought the Gladiator back in 2019, styled after their ever-popular Wrangler 4×4 SUV. With an impressive gas efficiency rating of 22/28 miles per gallon and upgraded cabin technology, the 2023 Gladiator is worth its $38,775 price tag. For work applications, you can confidently tow 4,000-4,500 pounds thanks to its powerful drivetrain and 3.0-liter V6 engine (diesel optional). And when you’re ready for off-roading adventures, you can ditch and store your Gladiator’s hardtop for an open-air experience.
There are many upcoming vehicles for the new year, but these three are undoubtedly the best work and utility pickup trucks for 2023. Ensure you visit your local dealership to check out the new inventory and find the perfect automobile for your specific needs!
