The Top 2015 Trucks According to Chase

Just a quick overview of the most amazing full size pickup trucks you can find at your local dealers this year.

I wanted to do this post since I recently had a Chevy 2500HD for the summer and fell in love with trucks.  I got rid of my 05 Acura RL for the truck so I could be, as my son would quote Thomas the Engine, "a useful engine."
Owning a house, taking part in a couple of businesses, and just playing around town is not an easy lifestyle if you own a sedan.  You can't take your large yard waste to the dump without a truck or trailer, and please don't ask me why I didn't put a hitch on my RL, you will get a weird look from me. I couldn't take a ladder and a shopvac to one of the businesses in the car, or even take our family's bikes to a fun park for the day. So a truck it was, and a 6.0L at that......"Soooooo Meaaatttyyyyy"

Then the truck started having some cosmetic things wrong with it that I could not stand, and I've just moved to outside the city, so driving my son to private school everyday into town at 12mpg's with the AC off was not pleasing.  At that time, I started looking at newer trucks, but damn they were expensive.......
I really wanted a better truck since I was in the position to help my friends and other family members with the capabilities of a full size truck.

But I ended up with something that fit my newer lifestyle a bit better - so my friends have told me. I went back to driving a luxury car because I found myself never really needing a truck at this point in my life, so I got something that you can find in this post here.

As the months have gone by, I watch the new trucks come out, the really cool aftermarket parts for them too that really set the trucks as "One-Offs" with each owner doing something different than their neighbor.  I look at the stock trucks driving by dealers and go "Wow, I wish I had that in my driveway too," These are the trucks I would like in that driveway and have also heard great things about.

The 2015 Trucks

The Ram 3.0L EcoDiesel V6 with a block of compacted graphite iron and aluminum twin-cam heads pushing out 420lbs of torque that can pull 9,200lbs behind it starting at $36,475.

2015 Ram EcoDiesel on

The Chevy 1500 EcoTech V8 that puts out 383lbs of torque matched with a GCWR 3.73, rear axel that can handle up to 16,700lbs of towing capacity!!!!!
This standard 1500 from Chevy starts under $34,000 but expect a higher price when you add the crazy rear axel.

And I won't even get started on the Tundra, because its a Tun of junk. Not really, but Toyota needs to stick with what they know and rebrand the truck devision just like Dodge did with Ram.
But the Tundra does know how to twerk it!

Here is the gas mileage comparison for the 2015 model trucks.....
Again, the Tundra is not on here because it only gets 18/19 on hwy.
