Have you ever seen a retro model of a pickup and decided, “holy moley! I must have that pickup!” but alas, it’d be too expensive? These recommendations are for you.
1992 Ford F-150 Nite Edition
Trucks with “Dark Knight vibes are the direct choice for designers. They sought after a quick-and-easy model to slap together. Even back in the nineties, color-flare decals were customized for the quarter panel of your Ford pickup. To top it all off, the Ford F-150 Nite Edition had factory sport suspension.
1992 GMC Sonoma GT
The GMC Sonoma GT gave the same “oompsk” same visual impact as the Syclone but with a mere 195 horsepower from a humble little 4.3-liter Vortec V-6. There also remains the towing capacity and the payload.
1993–1997 Ford Ranger Splash
The Ranger Splash is a diet sports truck. While they never were a showy line of trucks, the Splash has fan service for stepside box fans and suspension drop enthusiasts everywhere.
1994 Chevrolet S-10 SS/LS
Eager to get in on the buzz generated by the Sonoma GT, Chevrolet slapped a body kit on its own S-10 compact truck a couple of years later. A precursor to the “Xtreme” trim level that would define the small pickup’s early 2000s street pretensions, the SS/LS featured not just sleek lowrider looks but also the requisite limited-slip diff and a 200-hp version of GM’s ubiquitous 4.3-liter V-6.
1998 Ford F-150 NASCAR Edition
This was a special-edition F-150‘s tribute to NASCAR. Low suspension, dual side-exit exhaust, and a unique air dam. The latter of which was from Roush peeking under the front bumper. only 3,000 Ford F-150 NASCAR Editions came to life.
1998–2003 Dodge Dakota R/T
With a 250-hp 5.9-liter V8 pairing nicely with the 345 lb-ft of torque, the R/T would give limitless potential. And how couldn’t it? A collective of wide 17-inch tires, a 0.75-inch suspension drop, and huge brakes for already-thick rear stabilizer bars? Come on. A monochromatic paint scheme was nothing for the muscled-up Dakota. Huge big decals told everyone you ripped through tires for fun.
