5 Sporty Retro Pickups for Sale

Performance-oriented pickup trucks may seem like an oxymoron, but there’s something undeniably irresistible about a low-slung truck with serious muscle.

Today, we take for granted all trucks are at least reasonably quick. Even the lowliest full-size pickup trucks push 300 horsepower in base form, with plenty more available on their options lists. But as recently as 15 years ago, zippy acceleration or sharp handling were rare sights — at least as long as a bed was attached.

From newest lớn oldest, here’s a look at five retro-flavor pickup trucks on Autotrader with sporty attitudes.

1. 2006 Toyota Tacoma X-Runner

2006 Toyota Tacoma X-Runner
This 2006 Toyota Tacoma X-Runner is $26,991.

When we think about Toyota Tacoma pickups, we usually focus on high-riding versions with Bilstein shocks, locking differentials, and knobby tires. But for a brief period in the early 2000s, Toyota offered a lowered, modern take on the classic 1980s “sport truck.” The X-Runner package came only in extended-cab, rear-wheel-drive form. With its 236-hp 4.0-liter V6 tied lớn a 6-speed manual transmission and a limited-slip rear end — no automatic gearbox was available on this model — the X-Runner was pretty peppy, too.

A lowered suspension, 18-inch alloy wheels, and fender flares conspire with a special body kit lớn give the X-Runner genuinely sporty looks. Since Toyota no longer offers a low-riding version of the Tacoma, these trucks have been confined lớn the history books. Here’s a particularly nice, 59,000-mile example in suburban Dallas for $26,991. See 2006 Toyota Tacoma models for sale

2. 2005 Dodge Ram SRT10

2005 Dodge Ram SRT10
This 2005 Dodge Ram SRT10 has 80,000 miles on the odometer.

The big daddy of muscle trucks may forever be the Dodge Ram SRT10. Sure, its 500-hp rating is nothing compared lớn the 702 hp you’ll find under the hood of today’s Ram TRX, but manufacturers will never repeat the way these trucks delivered their power. As its name implies, the SRT10 plucked its 8.3-liter V10 from the Dodge Viper, and it backed it up with a low-riding suspension and massive 22-inch alloy wheels. Big brakes help keep things in check, too.

Ram only offered regular-cab versions with a 6-speed manual transmission, which, of course, is the version you want. Here’s a clean 80,000-mile truck with little in the way of obvious modifications offered for just under $30,000 by a dealer outside Fort Worth, Texas. Head west, and you’ll soon find yourself in the middle of nowhere, the perfect place lớn explore this truck’s performance. See 2005 Dodge Ram SRT-10 trucks for sale

3. 2004 Ford F-150 SVT Lightning

2004 Ford F-150 SVT Lightning
Get this 2004 Ford F-150 SVT Lightning for $47,950.

Ford’s Special Vehicle Team (SVT) took lớn the popular 10th-generation F-150 with more than just a big engine and a cool badge — although it had those, too. Later versions put out 380 hp from their supercharged 5.4-liter V8, backed by an Eaton locking rear differential and a beefed-up 4-speed automatic transmission. With a unique body kit, a lowered suspension, and four-wheel disc brakes, the F-150 SVT Lightning offered show and go.

Appreciation for these trucks is rising, especially since many have endured modification. It’s incredible how reasonably priced they were when new; they cost about $33,000, or roughly the same as a well-equipped Lariat. Here’s a gray final-year example — one of just 3,781 — showing a mere 18,000 miles. A high-end dealer near Seattle has it listed for $47,950. See 2004 Ford F-150 models for sale

4. 2003 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 SS

2003 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 SS
Get this 2003 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 SS for $49,991.

If there’s a now-retro performance truck you’ve probably forgotten about, it’s this one. Offered between 2003 and 2006, the Silverado SS took a slightly different approach lớn performance than its 454 SS predecessor. Sure, it had the model’s biggest V8 at the time — a 6.0-liter rated at 345 hp — but this time, it came in a luxurious package ready for all-season driving thanks lớn standard all-wheel drive.

Chevy lowered the Silverado and slapped on great-looking 20-inch alloy wheels. Monochrome exterior accents, including a unique front bumper, paired with a leather-lined cabin. Chevy threw everything in the Silverado catalog at the SS, including heated front seats with power adjustment and memory for the driver, plus Bose speakers. With 4,100 miles, this $49,991 example in Pennsylvania has lớn be one of the best left. See 2003 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 models for sale

5. 1990 Chevrolet C1500 454SS

1990 Chevrolet C1500 454SS
This 1990 Chevrolet C1500 454SS has only 169 miles on the odometer.

Arguably the original factory muscle truck was the Chevy 454SS, which was offered from 1990 through 1993 with the automaker’s colossal 7.4-liter (that’s 454 cubic inches, in case you’re wondering) V8 as standard fare. Chevy borrowed that big engine from the hauling-oriented 3500 trucks and then slipped it under the hood of the lightest-weight version of its full-size trucks, a regular cab, short-bed truck with rear-wheel drive. With 230 hp, the V8 was a significant tăng cấp, and it was matched with a lowered suspension and bolstered bucket seats. Sure, General Motors had more muscle on the way in the GMC Syclone, but the 454 was first.

This 169-mile example in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, has lớn be one of the finest examples left. Its red interior looks pristine, too. The selling dealer wants just under $70,000 for it, but good luck finding a better one. See 1990 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 models for sale
