If in the past pick-ups were considered farmers’ vehicles and were mostly used for tough work, today people often select them as their daily drivers for their utilitarian nature and overall package of features. However, pick-up trucks have one major flaw in comparison to other body styles. The market options are rather limited and the price is indeed high, at times far from affordable.
With this knowledge in mind, we decided to compile a list of the cheapest new trucks that could be bought in 2018. And to make the episode more inclusive, we added trucks from various markets, so you might want to check out availability at the dealership in your country prior to placing an order.
