Best pickups for sale 2020

Pickups can be a very popular choice of vehicle for business users who require something practical with load carrying capabilities which can also double up as a family vehicle on weekends. Pickups are also popular due to the tax implications which means that double cab pickups with payloads of one-tonne or more are classified as commercial vehicles and as a result qualify for a fixed rate of Benefit in Kind van tax.

Here is the Vansdirect countdown of the best pickups for sale in 2020:
