The Toyota Tundra was iSeeCars pick for the most reliable full-size pickup trucks for 2022. iSeeCars analyzed over 11.8 million used cars sold in 2020 to see which ones had at least 200,000 miles. Based on that data, the Toyota Tundra pickup truck was the longest-lasting and most reliable full-size truck. It isn’t the most updated truck on the market, but its long history of reliability makes up for that. Toyota equips the Tundra with a 5.7L V8 that can tow up 10 10,200 pounds.

Other notable options in the full-size truck category are the Chevrolet Silverado 1500 and the Ford F-150.

As far as midsize options go, the Honda Ridgeline was the most reliable pickup truck in that category for 2022. The Ridgeline is more like an SUV in terms of reliability, but its unibody design makes it even more versatile. It doesn’t tow as much as some of its competitors, but it offers more in the way of comfort. Honda equipped the Ridgeline pickup truck with a dual-action tailgate, making loading and unloading even easier. While it can only tow 5,000 pounds, that’s plenty for some situations.

iSeeCars mentions the Toyota Tacoma and the Jeep Gladiator as suitable alternatives to the Ridgeline. When properly equipped, the Tacoma can tow more than the Ridgeline.

New Honda Ridgeline pricing: $34,611 – $44,619

Used Honda Ridgeline pricing: $25,995 – $36,069

If you need a heavy-duty option, check out the Ram 3500

In the category of heavy-duty pickup trucks, the Ram 3500 took the top spot. The standard engine choice is a 6.4L gasoline engine, but a Cummins turbo-diesel engine is another good option. This version makes up to 1,075 lb-ft of torque and can tow 37,000 pounds. iSeeCars determined that the heavy-duty Ram 3500 tends to last the longest out of similar trucks in its segment. Plus, not many trucks can come close to that tow rating.

The Chevrolet Silverado 2500HD and the Ford F-350 Super Duty also offer long-term durability and capability, iSeeCars says.

iSeeCars Reliability Score: N/A

New Ram 3500 pricing: $45,520 – $73,275

Used Ram 3500 pricing: $22,000 – $110,000

Depending on how much work you need to do in your truck, these are some excellent options to get you started. A smaller truck probably won’t work if you need superior towing capability. In the same way a heavy-duty truck is perhaps overkill for many casual drivers. A full-size pickup truck is a good option for in between.
