2013 Pickup Truck Specifications

Compare Specs for 2013 Pickup Trucks


The number of pickup truck models available in the United States has declined in the past few years, mostly because manufacturers have eliminated their small trucks in favor of offering an expanded selection of full size models.

One small truck, the Suzuki Equator, disappeared when Suzuki declared bankruptcy and withdrew its autos from the U.S. market. The Equator never truly caught on, and was essentially a re-badged Nissan Frontier, which is still available for 2013.

Below, you'll find tables with related specifications for 2013 pickup trucks. The specs will hopefully offer a quick look at what's available on each truck for 2013, and allow you to make quick comparisons. Keep in mind that the tables are starting points -- many trucks can be configured in numerous ways, and not every feature can be combined with another.

The first table takes a look at engine and transmission choices for 2013 trucks.
