The most massive trucks you can buy

Mercedes-Benz Unimog U5000

Price: Starting at £175,000
Rating: 4/5 
The
Mercedes-Benz
Unimog U5000 is one of the most sought-after street-legal military style trucks in the world. With features like both-hand drive—which allows the vehicle to go from right- to left-hand-drive in about 30 seconds—an integrated tire pressure control system, and a 218hp OM 924 LA engine that delivers up to 597fp of torque, it’s no wonder this truck has an almost cult following.
  • Cons: It’s next to impossible to get the Unimog in the US, much less a brand new one. Buyers are limited to auction sites like
    Bring a Trailer
    and
    Cars and Bids
    or independent importers, which sends prices skyrocketing to over $360,000 even for well-used models.
Key Takeaway If you want to drive a Unimog in the US, be prepared to pay for the privilege.

International CXT

Price: Starting at $80,000 used
Rating: 4/5
One of the biggest trucks in Navistar International’s extreme truck series, the International CXT is also one of the biggest pickups in the world. Inline-six diesel engines with 7.6L capacity, 220-hp, and 540-pf of torque leave very little that the CXT can’t conquer.
  • Cons: Navistar only produced the CXT between 2004 and 2008. If you want one, you have to buy it used.

International CV515 4x4

Price: Starting at $100,000
Rating: 4/5 
Built for both on- and off-road performance, the International CV515 4x4 sports a 6.6L V8 turbocharged engine delivering 700-pf of torque that makes this big truck an absolute workhorse. The GM/Navistar partnership forged over the last decade really shows in this model.
  • Cons: The CV line is only offered in standard 2-door and 4-door crew cab models. Discussions are underway to add an extended-cab version and gasoline engine option to reduce upfront costs.

Mercedes-Benz AMG G 63 6x6

Price: Starting at $525,000 (new in 2013)
Rating: 9/10 
Like a smaller, more upscale version of the Unimog, the
Mercedes-Benz AMG G 63
6x6 is the ultimate combination of extreme off-road capability and class. Under the hood, drivers will find AMG’s twin-turbocharged and intercooled DOHC 32 valve V8 engine. In the cab, they’ll find Mercedes’ top-of-the-line S-Class interior.
  • Cons: Mercedes-Benz only manufactured the AMG G 63 6x6 from 2013 to 2015 to ensure the model’s exclusivity. A 2013 model modified by Brabus was listed in 2020 for $1M.
Key Takeaway Exclusivity makes the AMG G 63 6x6 one of the most expensive extreme trucks ever built. 

Hennessey VelociRaptor 6x6

Price: Starting at $349,000
Rating: 9/10 
The Hennessey VelociRaptor starts with the
Ford F-150 Raptor
—a truck that earns a 9/10 from Car and Driver on its own—and builds from there. Bumper-to-bumper modifications to everything from the axles to the airflow system mean the VelociRaptor is one of the toughest trucks on (or off) the road.
  • Cons: Decreased agility in the over-long wheelbase and a notable downgrade to simplistic leaf-spring suspension can make for stiff and awkward handling—especially around corners and on rough terrain.

Ford F-450 Super Duty

Price: Starting at $57,680
Rating: 8.5/10 
The Super Duty is available on the
F-250
,
F-350
, and
F-450
models—and when outfitted properly, the F-450’s 6.7L V8 Power Stroke diesel engine generates 1,050fp of torque to tow up to 37,000 pounds and offer up to 7,850 pounds hauling capacity. 
The Super Duty’s off-road Tremor package adds a lift kit, chunky tires, and other rough-terrain upgrades, making it a great choice for those looking to the already big truck’s stature.
  • Cons: The Super Duty trucks are notorious for their sloppy handling at high speeds, especially when they’re not towing or carrying a payload.

Dodge Mega Cab RAM 3500

Price: Starting at $49,485
Rating: 9/10 
Available in 4 trim levels with multiple powertrains, the 2022
Dodge
Mega Cab
RAM 3500
earns the Car and Driver Editors’ Choice Award. The 400hp high-output 6.7L inline-six Cummins diesel engine—only available on the 3500—produces an incredible 1,075-pf of torque, producing 37,090 pounds of towing capacity and the ability to haul up to 7,680 pounds
  • Cons: The six-speed automatic transmission doesn’t perform nearly as well as competitors’ more modern 10-speed configurations.

Hummer H1

Price: Est $60,000 used
Rating: 8/10
The H1 came in five trim levels, but all carried the same standard 6.6L turbo diesel OHV 32-valve V8 engine. Capable of producing 500-hp and 1,000-pf of torque, the H1 engine coupled with the massive wheelbase make the
Hummer
H1 ideal for offroad use. 
With 16-inches of ground clearance, a low-geared drivetrain, and beefy tires, the H1 is most at home in open, rough terrain.
  • Cons: This vehicle was not built for city streets. It looks and handles like a military vehicle and takes a long time to stop.

Lamborghini LM002

Price: Est $300,000 to $400,000 minimum at auction
Rating: 10/10 
Lamborghini isn’t usually recognized for its trucks—but with the LM002’s 5.2L DOHC 48-valve V12 engine, they basically shoe-horned a sports car’s engine into a truck
Meet the affectionately named Rambo Lambo, which, according to Lamborghini, is an SUV rather than a truck (we won’t tell if you won’t).
  • Cons: The Rambo Lambo was only manufactured from 1986 to 1993, making it somewhat a collector’s item. The original asking price was $120,000.
Key Takeaway Whether they’re still in production or not, big trucks usually mean big prices.

The top 3 standard full-size pickups

Dodge RAM 1500

Price: $37,695
Rating: 10/10
Especially at higher trims, the 2022
Dodge RAM 1500
could easily be mistaken for a luxury vehicle thanks to the sumptuous interior materials and super-soft ride. The RAM 1500’s strongest configuration can tow up to 12,750 pounds.
  • Cons: Pricier than most competitors and a bit on the fancy side for a work truck, the touchscreen infotainment system can suffer from slow response times.

Ford F-150

Price: Starting at $31,685
Rating: 9/10 
The
Ford F-150
offers a trim and body style for every taste and task. Plus, the 2022 model is the first to be offered with a hybrid powertrain that promises up to 700 miles of driving range per tank and features an onboard generator to help with all your job-site tasks.
  • Cons: While the base model is affordable, leveling up your trim quickly levels up the price tag as well. 

GMC Sierra 1500

Price: Starting at $32,495
Rating: 8.5/10 
GMC added lots of high-tech features to the 2022
Sierra 1500
, including a fully digital dashboard display with an Android Auto Google-based infotainment system in most models. For those looking for size and towing capacity, the Denali Ultimate can pull up to 13,200 pounds.
  • Cons: A stiff ride and comparatively high price tag place options like the Ram well above the Sierra.
