When it comes to exotic vehicles, the last thing most people think of is a pickup truck. They often think luxury and specialist vehicles of only exist in car form. The idea that pickup trucks can have the same, or even more, exotic properties is foreign to them.
This is because, for years, a stereotype has existed to casual car buyers about pickup trucks. They often think of them as larger forms of SUVs, used mainly for hunting, work, or transporting cargo. This is why we decided to put together a list of 10 of the most exotic pickup trucks in the world.
We hope this will show you the full capacity of these vehicles and demonstrate the full diversity and power behind them to break the stereotype of these vehicles as one-dimensional. It may also make you reconsider your choices next time your due to upgrade from your current model.
5 Of The Most Exotic Trucks In The World
1. Ford Super Duty F-450 Limited
While it may look like an ordinary pickup truck from the outside, the Ford Super Duty F 450 epitomizes both luxury and exotic. The exterior comes packed with useful features such as light-adaptable wing mirrors, and power controlled cabin steps that lower when getting into the truck. Keep in mind, the exterior is the less impressive aspect of this truck.
The interior contains WiFi capabilities, a full 360-degree and synthesized overhead display of your truck for parking and maneuvering, and comfortable camel leather inside for a really plush interior. That's not even mentioning how powerful of a drive this truck can be. Overall, this truck wins due to its specs. Aside from a need for truck tires too, you'll likely never have to buy an accessory, as let of the popular ones come as standard with this model.
2. Mercedes G-Class G63 AMG 6X6
The Mercedes-Benz website describes its G-Class truck as “embodying a perfect synthesis of uncompromising extravagance and technical perfection,” and after reviewing the features of this vehicle, it's very different to argue against the statement.
This pickup looks like it belongs to a 5-star general more so than a private citizen. Yet, its interior is what you’d expect from a top-notch luxury SUV.
The 6-wheel drive, 5.5litre, V8 engine, and huge ground clearance means this truck will clear pretty much any terrain with extreme ease and otherworldly handling. This is likely the best off-road vehicle in terms of terrain handling in existence today.
Meanwhile, the interior is equally as impressive. It boasts a full infotainment system, heated and ventilated seats, and a very plush contrasting leather upholstery for great comfort and style.
3. Lamborghini LM002
While the above Mercedes is likely the best pickup in terms of off-road handling, the Lamborghini LM002 is no doubt the fastest. It can climb at an angle of 120% with its four-wheel drive and still hit a maximum speed of 210 km per hour and reach 100 of those kilometers in under 8 seconds. This is thanks to its V12, 5.2-liter engine.
The speed and acceleration capacities of this pickup are insane for its size and handling. Unfortunately, due to its manufacturing dating back to the ’90s, the interior is a little dated. But you likely won't be buying a truck like this for its interior. There are also rumors of Lamborghini manufacturing a new model soon.
4. Honda Ridgeline
While other trucks on this list place for their capabilities and technology, the Honda Ridgeline is here for its customizability and comfort. With massive space for passengers, and the ability to essentially custom build and color your model, it screams luxury and is exotic as you want it to be.
It also has all of the standard specifications you'd expect, with a 5000 lb load capacity and great handling with its intelligent 4-wheel drive system. It's also the most affordable and easily accessible option on this list for casual buyers.
5. Dodge Ram SRT 10
The Dodge Ram SRT 10 is another 'golden oldie' addition to this list, after Lamborghini's LM002. The pickup was produced in 2004 and still holds its own today. Like the Lamborghini, this too has an incredible engine, with a V10, 8.3-liter block under the hood. It can hit 60 miles an hour in 4.9 seconds. Although, it does sacrifice some hauling capacity for this performance
It's also available in manual for added control. The interior will also have become a bit dated (it includes a DVD player), it's more than adequate to function in this day and age, and is very comfortable. Its sound system is also great, with a 10-inch woofer for outstanding bass.
Overall, the pickup has aged very well, with a retro-looking exterior that gives it a twinge of classical appearance, all with a superb engine underneath. This is a truck that you could own as a sports car enthusiast, or as a vintage car collector.
