Pickup trucks used to be inexpensive, simple vehicles. Today, there are both high-end luxury trucks that people buy and use in large numbers each year and inexpensive pickup trucks that are utilized for actual work. The latter have interiors lined with leather, powerful engines, and technological, comfortable, and convenient features that compete with European luxury vehicles. The former is the affordable pickup trucks you can use without spending a lot of money at the dealership.
They may not be the best pickups available or even have all the bells and whistles, and the majority of them are incredibly simple and lack four-wheel drive. But if you want to buy something with a cargo bed for as little money as possible, these are the things to look for. We have composed a list of the most affordable pickup trucks made available for use in 2022:
2022 Honda Ridgeline
Honda updated the Ridgeline for 2021, and the basic price increased as a result of the removal of the standard front-wheel-drive setup. The Sport trim level remains the default starting point which has been estimated to cost around $38,000. To justify its price, the Sport does offer a good number of standard features that are optional on other basic mid-size trucks. It also only comes in crew-cab configuration. The basic engine is a 3.5-litre V-6 with 280 horsepower.

2022 Toyota Tundra
Toyota has finally updated the Tundra for 2022, and the new model sports a fresh exterior and interior design as well as new engine options. Although the least priced variant in this image is the extended cab rather than the crew cab, the base SR model is still in use and is seen here. The twin-turbo 3.4-litre V-6 engine found in all Tundra models offers 405 pound-feet of torque, whereas the SR manages 348 horsepower. A more powerful V-6 with 389 horsepower and 479 pound-feet of torque is available if you pay extra. The new model for the tundra costs $37,436.
2022 Jeep Gladiator
The Jeep Gladiator is figuratively the Wrangler of trucks. This four-door pickup, which is based on Jeep’s renowned off-road SUV, shares many of the same rock-crawling qualities as the famed off-road SUV and has the critical distinction of being the only convertible pickup available. Despite the recent addition of a diesel engine option by Jeep, the base 3.6-liter gasoline V-6 is still the most affordable Gladiator configuration. A six-speed manual transmission is available on the Sport base model.
2022 Ram 1500
The Ram 1500 was new for 2019 and is our favourite of the full-size pickups. It has been given many awards based on its affordability and versatility. In its most affordable form, you get an extended-cab Ram Tradesman with rear-wheel drive and a V-6 engine. There’s no regular-cab model available. If you’re looking for a cheaper Ram, you can step back in time to the old model.
2022 Ford F-150
The Ford F-150, which was updated for 2021, has consistently won the sales race for pickup trucks. If you select a cheaper model, such as the XL standard cab, you can get it for a cheaper cost but you won’t gain access to many of the truck’s most intriguing new capabilities and the new appearance isn’t all that different. Additionally, despite the availability of a new F-150 hybrid, obtaining an F-series vehicle on a budget necessitates making do with a carryover engine, a normally aspirated 3.3-litre V-6, and rear-wheel drive.
2022 Nissan Frontier
Despite losing its position as the least expensive pickup truck, the Nissan Frontier is thankfully a brand-new vehicle for the first time in more than ten years. As the four-cylinder base engine from the previous generation is no longer available, all versions now come with a new 3.8-litre V-6 engine. Although there are more amenities available than previously and the interior is much more modern, the base S trim level is still only moderately equipped.
2022 Ford Ranger
The Ford Ranger has surpassed mid-size trucks from GMC, Nissan, and Chevy to become the second-cheapest truck on the market as a result of some pricing and equipment changes among its rivals. The Ranger just made a comeback, albeit owners of vintage Rangers will be shocked by the increase in size. Fortunately, it continues to offer dependable, basic models like the XL extended-cab, which, by today’s standards, lacks any frills. Ford used to provide a discount for choosing a rear-seat delete package, but because the removal of the jump seats is now a free option, those potential savings are no longer available.
2022 Ford Maverick
Ford is introducing brand-new truck models as part of the company’s portfolio expansion. The Maverick is a front-wheel-drive hybrid truck with a crew cab and tiny bed that is built on a crossover. Sounds intriguing, doesn’t it? It has an astonishingly low base price of around $22,000 and, according to the ratings, can achieve up to 42 mpg, making it a cost-effective choice for folks who want a truck but don’t require a lot of capabilities. Both all-wheel drive and a turbocharged 2.0-litre inline-four are options, although they greatly increase the cost.
2022 GMC Canyon
GMC increased the price of the Canyon pickup substantially by removing the base models. The Elevation trim, which is more well-equipped than the previous SL model and has a little cooler appearance, is now the base model. It still shares many mechanical components with the Chevy Colorado and has a 2.5-litre inline-four as standard power and rear-wheel drive as an option.
2022 Toyota Tacoma
The Tacoma from Toyota, which has earned a reputation for dependability, affordability, and no-nonsense capabilities, has possibly the greatest reputation in the small-pickup sector. Being more affordable than any other traditional body-on-frame trucks available on the market in 2022 is likely its strongest selling point. That’s in part due to the Utility package. Although, most buyers might not like the paid features of the Tacoma.
The trucks on our list are the best as affordable goes. Although some might not come with the optimal and aesthetically pleasing features that can be gotten in luxury trucks, if you are looking for practicality and durability, you cannot go wrong with our choices.
