Mitsubishi Strada was lauded for its hauling capabilities and comfortable

Talking about the best pickup truck in 2020, it’s a mistake if we forget about Mitsubishi Strada.

Mitsubishi Strada has been renewed and sheds a lot of gripes. It shows Mitsubishi’s current design language with a large imposing Dynamic Shield. Its features are more right angles on the edges of the chin that integrates onto those large front fender bulges. The rear tail lamp mimics the Montero Sport’s design.  

The cabin is decorated with leather material and soft-touch plastics. It may look pretty for the first time using it but easily susceptible to fingerprints and smudges. Anyway, it is still a beautiful interior, with the black-faced gauges and with scarlet and carbon fiber trim.

6. Chevrolet Colorado - Scratchy, hard, but elegant

Chevy Colorado was named after one of the United States’ most beautiful scenic spots.

Looking at the front-end, you will be wonderstruck about it. The larger grill is sided by squared-off headlights with LED daytime running lights which make the pickup truck looks cleaner, tidier and well-proportioned.

The cabin inside is scratchy, hard, but elegant. New toggle-type switches and stalks work usefully and easily. The contrast provided by seats and grey dash trim makes the cabin more spacious.

The brand’s MyLink infotainment system supports Apple CarPlay/Android Auto intuitively with crisp and clean graphics. In terms of seating, the passenger room is abundant which can house up to 5 adults. However, many commented that the seats are too flat and uncomfortable.

Mazda BT-50 is the pickup truck that most people tend to forget. It’s been almost seven years since Mazda introduced this pickup to the Philippine market.

Mazda BT-50 has the early Mazda design. It’s surely softer than the current-generation pickups. Larger headlights and more rounded shapes for the fenders look more traditional and conservative.

Inside the pickup, the steering wheel controls and the dashboard layout are similar to previous generations of Ford. The cabin of BT-50 shows a sort of simplicity with the black plastics and black leather seats. The plastic used in the cabin is glossy and hard. Besides, all buttons and switches are laid out nicely.
