The three finalists have been announced for the 2015 North American Truck/Utility Of The Year.

Chevrolet Colorado

Starting MSRP: $20,120 USD.

The Chevrolet Colorado, which is the 2015 Motor Trend Truck Of The Year, is a small four-door pickup truck. One of the primary selling points of this vehicle is its technology, including the high-tech user interface. It has an 8″ touch screen, a 4G LTE Wi-Fi hotspot, and OnStar which will obtain your location, call for help, and turn on the hazard lights automatically (i’m not saying these are exclusive features, but Chevy appears to be focused on these technologies). Last, but not least, its fuel economy rating is 27 MPG highway, and it is equipped with a 305 HP engine.

Ford F-150

Starting MSRP: $25,420.

Ford equipped their 2015 F-150 pickup truck with LED side mirror lights to illuminate your environment at night. This is brilliant, simple, and very useful. All manufacturers should implement it. At night, you need to see what you’re doing without setting up a lamp or struggling with a flashlight, and these side mirror lamps are perfect for that. It also has a tailgate LED light. See the other features.
