About This Quiz

Pickup trucks have been around since nearly the beginning of the automotive industry. Like all great things from history, they've changed and evolved with each new advancement in technology, performance and safety. From the Ford F-150 to the Jeep Gladiator to the history-making Teslas Cybertruck, the remarkable, unique and powerful trucks we have today span the globe and perform specialized and universal tasks we can all appreciate, and they never stop changing! 

Whether you're interested in spending a weekend out in the sunshine, building a log cabin in the wilderness, or hanging out downtown, the truck you pick to take you there can say more about who you are and what you care about than it might seem.
