2020 Honda Ridgeline

Honda blends the two genres with the groundbreaking 2020 Ridgeline, with compact SUVs and pickup trucks more common than ever. Sure, it can’t tow as well as its mid-size counterparts and looks like a minivan stuck on to the rear end with a truck bed. The Honda’s cabin, though, is better designed and more spacious than anything else in its class. Similarly, due to an in-bed trunk and open audio system, the freight bed can handle standard chores and provides unconventional features. It also demonstrates an uncanny athleticism and a superb ride quality that makes it enjoyable during daily use. The Ridgeline will suit your bill if you’re looking for a truck that operates like a decent family hauler and has no conventional truck appeal.

2020 Chevy Colorado

The best midsize truck you will get in 2020 is the Chevrolet Colorado. Thanks to its combination of car-like handling, smooth ride, and highly practical and easy-to-access bed, the Colorado came first in a recent comparative test with the Ford Ranger, Honda Ridgeline, and Toyota Tacoma. Its affordable entry price adds to the appeal, as does its real-truck towing figures (which help vault it past the similarly smooth Honda. A 2021 model-year refresh gives the truck a slightly updated look. If you’re off-road, you should use the ZR2 to keep the adventurer in you satisfied with all the goodies.

2020 GMC Canyon

The GMC Canyon shares its plush ride and sharp handling with its mechanical sibling, the Colorado, which largely leaves your aesthetic tastes to choose between the two. The GMC thus delivers the same variety of powertrains (including a segment-exclusive diesel) but is blockier than the aerodynamic-appearing Chevy, which is more smoothed-over. It also offers a luxurious Denali trim level that upstages even the nicest Colorado, with a chrome grille, 20-inch “diamond-cut”-style aluminum wheels, leather-appointed seats (heated and ventilated up front), and other upgrades. So if you are looking for a Rigid with extra off road 4×4 capability then 2020 GMC Canyon truck is for you under this category.

2020 Toyota Tacoma

The Tacoma is one of the most popular midsize trucks in the U.S.

Despite there being no shortage of Tacomas in the used market, even decade-old samples sell for a premium. What makes the Tacoma special is that a six-speed manual transmission helps you to buy it. On the tech front, Toyota has improved and now sells both Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. Even the cabin is straight-forward and it is well thought out ergonomically. Finally, it has a strong engine, good towing capacity, and decent off-road bias to keep mild off-roaders happy. An all-rounder in true sense.
