Pickup trucks are typically associated with raw power and performance. Popular models such as the Ford F-150 have been improved over the years to serve one simple purpose: to exert raw power and tow huge payloads from construction site to construction site. With 2020 around the corner, the purpose of the traditional pickup is changing, veering away from just heavy-lifting to also providing a new level of comfort and luxury.
