A pickup truck is a workhorse, designed to tow and lug loads, but modern life demands enough performance to at least keep up with traffic, so here are the fastest pickups you can buy in the UK right now.

The new Toyota Hilux arrives in the UK later this year, but you can see what’s coming from this full gallery of images.

Nissan has announced its much-needed restructuring plan, Nissan Next, and inadvertently revealed the first images of the next-gen Navara at the same time.

Few pickup trucks do tough like the Toyota Hilux, but the current model is far from the most powerful model on the market, so Toyota is addressing that by installing a larger, 2.8-litre turbo diesel engine in this year’s updated model.
