While truck lovers are typically known for craving power, it’s usually for hauling heavy payloads, not hauling on the dragstrip. But every now and then, engineers at some of the world’s biggest automakers get lucky and slip insanely fast pickup trucks past the corporate lawyers and bean counters out onto the streets.
Descended from the muscle and sports car communities, a small but lively group of truck enthusiasts have continued to egg on manufacturers in the race to build faster trucks. And while virtually none of these muscle trucks are appreciated the way a Boss Mustang or Camaro SS are, a few have gone on to become legends in their own rights.
This list showcases the fastest pickup trucks from some of the world’s biggest automakers, so our countdown is limited to production models. That means trucks like the Hennessey SRT-10 Ram Venom 650R and the Chevrolet S-10 Xtreme Force are no-shows. But that doesn’t mean that there isn’t plenty of firepower here. So without further ado, here are the world’s 10 fastest pickup trucks, ranked according to their acceleration time from 0-60 miles per hour.
