In 2023, pickup trucks are massive vehicles. Even a midsize truck can make a full-size pickup from the 90s look tiny. For shorter drivers, that can be a little bit problematic. Even for taller folks, having a truck with adjustable pedals can make driving these behemoths an easier task. So which new trucks in 2023 have adjustable pedals?

What are adjustable pedals?

Adjustable pedals are essentially a feature that allows a driver to adjust how far the pedals are from their feet. Instead of having to move the seat extremely close to the steering wheel to reach the pedals, you can get the pedals to come to you.

This feature has been around for some time. But in 2023, power-adjustable pedals are becoming more common. At first, it was mostly luxury vehicles that offered the feature. But now you can find adjustable pedals in multiple pickup trucks. 

Which trucks have adjustable pedals?

The 2023 Ford F-150, Ram Heavy-Duty, and Nissan Titan all offer adjustable pedals. This feature might be an add-on for an extra cost, but it might be worth it for some folks. It looks like the 2023 Ram 1500 can also come with adjustable pedals. 

According to GM Authority, a number of General Motors products have lost the power-adjustable pedal option. Losing that feature is certainly a bit of a disappointment. Drivers come in all shapes and sizes, and there should be options to help make a pickup truck more comfortable. 

That is especially true with how large modern trucks have become. Even the 2023 Toyota Tacoma which I recently tested feels like a fairly large vehicle. And that is Toyota’s take on a midsize truck. 

By the way, we have confirmation that the 2024 Tacoma will retain a manual transmission, so even without adjustable pedals, good job Toyota!

Which truck is best for short drivers?

The best truck for short drivers might be the 2023 Ford F-150. You get things like optional adjustable pedals and a telescoping steering wheel. The visibility of this full-size truck is also pretty good. And that should be helpful for shorter folks, but also most drivers in general. 

At the end of the day, the best way to determine which truck is right for you is to get behind the wheel. Test drives exist for a reason, and they can help you figure out if a vehicle will fit who you are and your lifestyle needs.

New trucks aren’t cheap, and buying something sight unseen is a bit of a risk. While it is possible to order a truck online, I’d still recommend test driving an example, before you put your money down. 

Also, keep in mind that most adjustable pedals are an option on these pickups. And that will require you to pay extra in order to get the feature. With how big trucks are, I think it could be worth it for certain consumers.
