Pickup Trucks: 2018 Detroit Auto Show: What We Know

The 2018 North American International Auto Show, aka the Detroit auto show, is shaping up to be quite an interesting show if pickup trucks are your passion. It's been quite a while since we've had several all-new pickups revealed in Detroit, but this year's event promises to be a truck-centric show. There will be plenty of new cars and concepts to look at along with the trucks. To see what other vehicles are expected to debut in Detroit, check out this liston sister site For more information on the pickups we expect to see, read on.

2019 Chevrolet Silverado 1500

An all-new 2019 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 lineup will be on full display and we'll to do our best to get as much technical information as we can on the available trim packages. In December we got a gander at the Z71 Trailbossversion of the new Chevy half ton during a brief reveal at the Texas Motor Speedway. We weren't able to get inside the truck and poke around, so more to come.

2019 Ford Ranger

There's been quite a bit of speculation about this mid-size pickup that enjoys a great deal of success overseas. Rumors are rampant that we'll see the 2019 Ford Ranger, the newest entry to the U.S. mid-size pickup class, at the show.

2019 Ram 1500

The 2019 Ram 1500 one is probably the worst-kept secret of the show, but it could provide us with the most impressive example of a complete redesign from a truckmaker that wants to reset the bar for the half-ton class. We've seen plenty of spy photosfrom our shooters in the field and from what we're hearing, this one could shake things up.

Wild Cards

Other manufacturers such as Nissan, Jeep, Mercedes-Benz and even Hyundai may decide to dip into the pickup truck pool at the show, perhaps showing a new concept or two. But if that's their plan, they've done a pretty good job of keeping it quiet. Regardless, we expect more pickup trucks to be revealed at the Chicago Auto Show in February, The Work Truck Showin March and (very likely) the New York International Auto Showin April.
