Pickup trucks for the family
Pickup trucks are no longer reserved for farmers and construction workers. These days, they can easily be used to commute to work, haul new furniture or take the family out for dinner. That's why they're growing in popularity and appealing to many types of consumers.
But not every pickup truck is right for both work and play, especially if it's for a large family. After all, some pickup trucks come without a cabin, leaving little room for boosters or car seats.
Pickup truck buyers remain interested in hauling strength, meaning their horsepower, engine size and a larger gas tank to fill up. But gone are the days when pickups were simply utilitarian. These days, their interiors can rival some luxury cars on the market.
With the economy still bumping along, and people forced to do more with less, Bankrate.com came up with a list of five versatile pickup trucks that won't give you sticker shock or break the bank when figuring your miles per gallon.
The prices of Bankrate's choices of pickup trucks range from economical to expensive.
