About This Quiz

Can you tell a Ford F-150 from a Nissan Titan, or a Toyota Tacoma from a Ram pickup? If so, you might have what it takes to ace this quiz on all things trucks!

If you had to guess, what would you name as the bestselling vehicle in the United States? A compact sedan, or trusty SUV? Nope, it's the Ford F-150 half-ton pickup. In production since the 1940s, the Ford F-series has always been a top-seller, and this trusty pickup became the most popular truck in America by the late '70s. By the mid-'80s, it had eclipsed sensible sedans, station wagons and sporty convertibles as the bestselling vehicle of any kind in the country -- and it's remained in that sport for decades. 

So what is it about a truck that has so many people lining up at the dealership? Is it the ability to haul objects to and from the house or jobsite? Is it that feeling of sitting up higher above smaller cars so you can see the road stretched out ahead? Or is it simply a coolness or wow-factor that only a truck can bring? For many buyers, it's likely a combination of these and many other factors that is spurring the love for trucks.

It's no secret that pickups are popular, but do you think you can recognize some of the most popular trucks ever made from just a single image? Take our quiz to find out!

Chevy C K Do you know the make and model of this truck?
Chevy C/K
The Chevy C/K is a classic model line of full-size trucks produced between 1960 and 2000. The C designation was used for two-wheel drive, while the K was used on models with four-wheel drive. From the compact '60s models to the squared-off bodies of the '70s and '80s, to the larger and more shapely models of the '90s, this line changed dramatically over the decades. The C/K line was replaced by the Chevy Silverado at the start of the new millennium.
