It’s always fun to talk about cars from the past! Here is a look at some of the best pickup trucks from the 80s.
Pickup trucks from the 1980s weren’t all that different than they are today, as engine power and towing capacity came at a premium along with ample cargo space. However, many of the comfort and driving features that current pickup trucks were present in the rides of old.
Some popular 80s pickup trucks include:
The Ford F-150 was great back in the 80s and has remained popular to this day. The F-Series has been going strong since the 1940s and the Seventh and Eighth Generations were some of the best in its history.
Boasting a 5.0-liter V8 with electronic fuel injection, the Ford F-150 of the late 80s delivered top-of-the-class performance. Both the exterior and interior were redesigned over the decade into something highly sought after by collectors.
