2. Chevrolet Silverado 1500
0-60 MPH time: 5.7 seconds
The Chevrolet Silverado 1500 is one of the fastest pickup trucks that consumers will find on the road today. The truck is capable of going from zero to 60 MPH in 5.7 seconds. The truck is powered by a 4.3 liter V-6 rated at 305 lb-ft of torque and 420 horsepower. The top overall speed of the vehicle is 99 MPH, and besides being able to go fast, the Silverado also gets decent fuel economy for a truck with a 15 MPG (city) and 24 MPG (highway). For those who desire more power than speed in the Silverado, there is also an option to upgrade to a 6.2 or 5.3 liter engine that are better designed for hauling large loads with the vehicle.
