full size pickup truck

What is the concept of a full-size pickup? Pickup lovers must have heard the concept of a full-size pickup a lot. In recent years, with the development of China's pickup truck market, some Chinese pickup truck manufacturers have begun to produce full-size pickup trucks to cater to Chinese consumers' greater pursuit of pickup trucks.

When the concept of "full-size large pickup" is more and more widely used, consumers can't help but wonder, how is the concept of full-size defined? What kind of standard can be counted as a full-size pickup truck? Next, I will introduce the classification standard of pickup trucks and what kind of pickup trucks are the development trend of pickup trucks in the world.

 

Pickup truck classification

As the largest pickup truck market in the world, pickup trucks are the most popular among Americans. In the United States, pickup trucks are graded by gross mass.

In fact, there is no clear definition of a pickup truck. Basically, it can pull people and goods. Any vehicle with an open cargo box behind the cab can be called a pickup truck. American consumers generally call a pickup truck a truck, which means For trucks in a broader sense, the most standard classification of pickup trucks is based on the classification method of the American pickup truck market, that is, pickup trucks are put into the truck category, and are uniformly divided according to the total weight, not by size.

US truck class Duty classification Weight limit Examples
Class 1 Light duty 0–6,000 pounds (0–2,722 kg) Chevrolet Colorado/GMC Canyon, Ford Ranger, Honda Ridgeline FWD, Jeep Gladiator, Nissan Frontier, Toyota Tacoma
Class 2a Light duty 6,001–8,500 pounds (2,722–3,856 kg) Chevrolet Silverado/GMC Sierra 1500, Ford F-150, Honda Ridgeline AWD, Ram 1500, Nissan Titan, Toyota Tundra
Class 2b Light duty 8,501–10,000 pounds (3,856–4,536 kg) Chevrolet Silverado/GMC Sierra 2500, Ford F-250, Nissan Titan XD, Ram 2500
Class 3 Medium duty 10,001–14,000 pounds (4,536–6,350 kg) Chevrolet Silverado/GMC Sierra 3500, Ford F-350, Ford F-450 (pickup only), Ram 3500, Isuzu NPR
Class 4 Medium duty 14,001–16,000 pounds (6,351–7,257 kg) Chevrolet Silverado 4500HD/International CV, Ford F-450 (chassis cab only), Ram 4500, Isuzu NPR-HD
Class 5 Medium duty 16,001–19,500 pounds (7,258–8,845 kg) Chevrolet Silverado 5500HD/International CV, Ford F-550, Ram 5500, Isuzu NRR, Freightliner Business Class M2 106, Kenworth T170, Peterbilt 325
Class 6 Medium duty 19,501–26,000 pounds (8,846–11,793 kg) Chevrolet Silverado 6500HD/International CV, Ford F-650, Freightliner Business Class M2 106, International MV, Kenworth T270, Peterbilt 330, Mack MD
Class 7 Heavy duty 26,001–33,000 pounds (11,794–14,969 kg) Autocar ACMD, Freightliner Business Class M2 106, Ford F-750, Hino 338, International MV, Kenworth K370, Kenworth T370 and T440/470, Mack MD, Peterbilt 220 and 337/348
Class 8 Heavy duty 33,001 pounds (14,969 kg) and above Autocar ACX and DC; Volvo Truck VNL; Freightliner Cascadia, Business Class M2 112, 118SD, and EconicSD; Ford F-750; Hino XL8; International LT, HV, and RH; Kenworth T680, T880, and W990; Mack Anthem, Granite, Tesla Semi, Nikola TRE, Pinnacle, and TerraPro; Peterbilt 389, 579, and 520; Western Star 4800, 4900 and 5700; Pierce, E-One, Spartan, Ferrara, KME custom fire apparatus.

This classification standard is the gross vehicle weight rating (GVWR), that is, the maximum total weight of the vehicle when it is full of fuel, people and goods. Different types of trucks have different standards according to driver's licenses, taxes and environmental protection requirements. As can be seen from the chart, the full-size large pickups, medium-sized pickups and compact pickups we often talk about are all light trucks, and the basis for dividing full-size pickups is whether the total mass is between 2.7 and 3.85 tons. The reason why 2.7 tons is selected as the classification standard is that in the United States, pickup trucks larger than 2.7 tons enjoy relevant tax and fee reduction policies, which can save a lot of car purchase costs.

Pickup trucks over 3.8 tons are actually considered heavy-duty pickups. This type of model is not a mainstream product for ordinary consumers. These heavy-duty pickups are far from our daily life, and they are also far away from our daily life. These beasts Pi trucks are often used as trailers, large trucks and even fire trucks. Therefore, American full-size pickup trucks are classified according to the tonnage standard of 2.7-3.85, which is actually a classification method with American characteristics born under the influence of the unique market environment and automobile policies.

Each region is based on the size of American pickup trucks

If it is distinguished according to the "total mass", certain models of some Chinese pickup trucks can meet this standard, but these models are all medium-sized pickup trucks, which are a circle smaller than American full-size pickup trucks in appearance, so this It is unreasonable to put this kind of classification on a global basis, so how are other regions divided?

In fact, we use size as the basis for classification. Pickup trucks outside the U.S. market are classified based on the body size of American pickups, that is, the product size is compared with full-size pickups, medium-sized pickups, and compact pickups to determine which classification the product belongs to. .

For example, if the length of the vehicle is about 5.8 meters or 6 meters, and the width is more than 2 meters, it can be regarded as a full-size pickup truck if it is as big as a Ford F-150 or Nissan Titan; At about 1.8 meters, a medium-sized pickup is as big as a Ford Ranger or Toyota Hilux; and a body size of about 5 meters or less is a compact pickup. Some tool-type pickups in the domestic market are actually compact. pickup.

The total mass is only an additional reference option in this classification process. Pickup trucks in East Asia represented by China and Southeast Asia represented by Thailand have strong commercial attributes and focus on loadability. The laws and regulations of each region give full play to the practicality; Australia, which is also sparsely populated, also likes medium-sized pickup trucks, which can fully meet their needs. Environmental protection, taxes, fuel costs and other issues make them different from the US market. In fact, only American-style pickups are available for full-size pickups in the true sense, and most of the audience for this type of model is in the United States, and there are very few other regions.

Medium-sized pickups are more in line with future trends

Consumers outside the US market prefer and need medium-sized pickups more, and medium-sized pickups are more in line with the development trend of the global pickup industry. Toyota Hilux does not have the domineering physique of the Ford Raptor, nor does it have the luxurious and high-end interior of the GMC Sierra Denali, but it is the well-deserved king of pickups outside the US market, and consumers in the Middle East, Southeast Asia, and Australia are very fond of it Hilux, Chinese consumers are also very obsessed with Hilux, and have always hoped that this car can be introduced.

Medium-sized pickups are very popular in regions other than the United States, especially in developing countries. It can be said that consumers in regions other than the U.S. market rarely buy full-size large pickups. This is because other regions do not have the car environment of the United States, including Low oil prices, favorable taxes and fees, large land and sparse population and other factors.

Take China as an example. The vast majority of China’s population is concentrated in the eastern region. High urbanization and population agglomeration lead to huge urban traffic pressure and tight urban planning space, which results in scarce parking space for vehicles. Therefore, people here have no way to behave like Americans. If you travel in a full-size pickup, a mid-size pickup is a better choice.

What's more, medium-sized pickup trucks in the US domestic market are also on the rise. Ford Ranger, Jeep Gladiator and other models have announced their return to the US market. Bigger full-size pickups don't fit the globalization strategy.

On the contrary, enlarging medium-sized pickup trucks to make them more in line with the needs of global users is in line with the future development of the pickup truck industry. At present, car companies are also doing the same. Pickup trucks are evolving towards wide bodies and large sizes, but they will not reach the so-called The body shape of a full-size pickup.

 

Conclusion

In China, pickup products are advertised as full-size large pickups to cater to the Chinese concept of buying big and beautiful. However, midsize pickups are gradually increasing in size as needs change and evolve. Chinese pickup trucks are gradually improving their product strength, which can also meet our needs.
