The Most Popular Types of Trucks in Texas

For all the Texas truck lovers out there, we’ve compiled a list of the most popular trucks in Texas. Not only that, but there are some great ways that you can customize your truck to be sure you stand out from the crowd. It’s no secret that trucks in Texas are extremely popular. RECON truck accessories provide the opportunity to help make your vehicle look even more rugged, more robust, and cooler than ever, so yours looks unique.

Why Trucks in Texas Are So Popular

There’s a good reason why trucks in Texas are so popular. Old trucks, new trucks, souped-up trucks- they’re all over the state. Full-sized and heavy-duty options are often the purchase of choice, due to the towing capability and power these models have to offer consumers.

One study states that out of all vehicle purchases made in the state, 20% of those are pickup trucks and SUVs. They are so popular that many manufacturers have created exclusive Texas models, and more trucks are sold in Texas than in any other state in the country.

Texas is a state full of places to off-road and go mudding, backcountry roads, and robust cities. It makes sense that trucks are the most popular vehicle of choice, and as the saying goes, “Everything is bigger in Texas.”

Additionally, San Antonio is home to Toyota’s truck plant, contributing to the state-wide economy. General Motors also has a plant in Arlington, Texas, that has been in operation for more than 60 years. As far back as 1911, automobile companies manufactured trucks in Texas. Texas is the true home of many models, new and old. The Texas State Fair is where many manufacturers choose to show-off their latest models and roll out their state-specific editions.
