Modern day living has changed the requirements and expectations of luxury vehicles. These days, luxury is no longer limited to four-passenger coupes and sedans, and increased gas prices and global warming concerns apparently aren’t tugging on the heart strings of every American.
Today, luxury cars are now trucks, big trucks with big engines that match the comfort and style of any other luxury vehicle on the market. Here are six companies that produce the most luxurious pickup trucks priced over $50,000.
Ford F150 SuperCrews
Ford makes three F150 models that put standard luxury vehicles to shame: the Limited SuperCrew, Platinum SuperCrew and King Ranch SuperCrew. With features like dual zone automatic temperature control, reverse sensing, 360-degree camera and split-view display, dynamic hitch assist, fully flat load flooring and a 110-volt/440-watt power inverter, the SuperCrew models provide high-tech capability and superior comfort.
Nissan Titan XD Crew Cabs
Nissan also crafted three models for their Titan line that prove luxury cars are now trucks: the XD SL Crew Cab, XD Platinum Reserve Crew Cab and XD Pro-4X Crew Cab. Expansive interiors, premium two-toned leather seats, heated steering wheels, moving object detection technology, front and rear sonar systems and 4G Wi-Fi makes Titan XD models the perfect combination of function and class.
Chevrolet Silverado High Country
The Silverado 1500 High Country Crew Cab upholds the stamina of Chevrolet’s legacy pickup trucks with extra features that set this vehicle apart from the competition. Known for its spacious cabin, quiet ride, heated seats and built in Bose audio system, this Silverado demonstrates the best of modern day engineering and style.
GMC Sierra 1500 Denali
GMC’s Sierra 1500 Denali Crew Cab boasts a bold exterior and premium features such as a power sunroof, power sliding rear window, triple door seals, aerodynamic exterior mirrors and magnetic ride control. This model truly sets new standards for vehicle technology and ascertains any disbeliever that luxury cars are now trucks.
Toyota Tundra CrewMax
With its chrome grille and rear bumper and soft-touch interior fabrics, the Toyota Tundra 1794 CrewMax mixes modern chic with classic comfort. Automatic dual zone climate control with dust and pollen filters, 5-passenger seating capacity, an integrated backup camera, power adjustable front seats, a leather-trimmed power steering wheel and power vertical sliding rear window with defogger and privacy glass are just a few features that make this Tundra one of a kind.
RAM Laramie Longhorn
Known for its high-quality interior and durability, the RAM 1500 Laramie Longhorn Crew Cab demonstrates both luxury and tough performance. It’s another quiet ride with self-leveling air suspension and an eight-speed automatic transmission. The Laramie Longhorn is also loaded with a 12-volt and 115- volt auxiliary power outlet, 20-inch steel spare wheel, accent color running boards and fender flares, heavy duty engine cooling and high-back seats.
In years to come, consumers may see luxury vehicle companies like Mercedes-Benz producing pickup truck models to capitalize on the inevitable fact that luxury cars are now trucks. Regardless if or when that occurs, avid fans can certainly see more advancements that bridge technology, durability, class and comfort from the trusted truck companies they love.
