It's no secret that the most popular full-size pickup trucks on the market are half tons, accounting for more than 1.6 million sales in 2016 per some reports. None of the manufacturers break out half-ton sales from three-quarter-ton and one-ton numbers, so we can't report the exact numbers each month. Still, analysts at our sibling site, Cars.com, say that the three-quarter-ton pickup segment is going strong and is considerably larger than the attention-getting one-ton pickups.
That's why we decided to find out which truckmaker makes the best stripped-down, regular-cab, long-bed three-quarter-ton work truck. Although the work truck segment is typically popular with fleet and municipal buyers, our 2017 3/4-Ton Work Truck Challenge will provide a pretty good idea of which manufacturer is building the strongest, most versatile platform.
We'll be publishing the full story soon, but we wanted to whet your appetite by providing photo galleries of the contenders starting today. First up: the 2017 Chevrolet Silverado 2500 WT.
