These 6 luxury vans will get you to the jobsite in comfort and style
Deluxe Trucks are now the best way to show off your success. Many are now skipping the fancy BMW or Lexus nameplates and opting for Limited, Platinum and Denali badges on their trucks. These trucks can get the job done, but they’re just as likely to be parked in the parking lot next to the (cheaper) BMWs and Porsches. These luxury vans are the ones that take to the jobsite and impress at Michelin starred restaurants on weekends.
Ram 1500 Limited
About a decade ago, Ram realized that his interiors needed help to look and feel better because, after all, that’s where you spend your time. No truck illustrates this better than the Limited. It features premium leather, metal and wood trim, a standard 12-inch-tall touchscreen, a dual-glazed sunroof, soft-touch materials throughout the cabin, as well as as well as a heated steering wheel and seats and an embossed Limited logo on the console. The Ram’s fit and finish rivals the best, even the contrasting double-stitched leather on the dash and wood trim could rival a Mercedes.
But Ram also takes the performance and capability of this standard air-ride truck, a Hemi V8, seriously. The Limited starts at $62,685 in two-wheel drive trim.
Nissan Titan Crew Cab Platinum Reserve
The Nissan Titan has never competed with the greats of the truck world and is going away in a few years. But for a certain buyer it ticks all the boxes because it still looks like a truck inside with hard plastic on the console and big switches and knobs that don’t hide the fact that it’s is a leather-covered work truck. The Platinum Reserve comes fully equipped with premium sound, a satin finish on the grille, heated and cooled seats and a dark chrome interior. It offers several options, such as rear-seat entertainment, 20-inch wheels and much more to show it off.
The Nissan is the bargain of the bunch at $57,500, but the all-wheel drive is a $3,200 upgrade. It comes with a 400 horsepower V8 and a 100,000 mile powertrain warranty.
Chevrolet Silverado High Country
The Silverado got a big upgrade in 2022 that highlighted the truck’s utility and off-road prowess more than its luxury status. But that doesn’t mean Chevy has given up on building cowboy Cadillacs. Just gaze at that 13.4-inch horizontal screen, leather trim and digital instruments, real wood, while sitting back in hands-free comfort with Super Cruise. The High Country trim has it all if you check the option boxes. The High Country version starts at $59,000 with the 5.3-liter V8, but a Duramax diesel engine is available, as is the mighty 6.2-liter V8.
Ford F-150 Limited
While the King Ranch is the leather-trimmed version and the Platinum has all the styling you could ask for, the Limited offers the most in a Ford F-150 pickup. You’re greeted by power running boards in the Platinum and seated in Admiral Blue leather trim inside. If you didn’t know there was a bed, you could swear you were in a top-tier Lincoln Navigator in the Limited. Street-focused tires and wheels give it more balance on the road, if the 10-way heated and cooled driver and passenger seats aren’t comfortable enough.
The Platinum starts at $77,625 for 2022, but you might have to wait until the 2023 versions hit the ground to find one since most 2022s are sold out.
GMC Sierra 1500 Denali Ultimate
The Denali is a great Cadillac-level luxury truck, but the Ultimate Package adds even more to this luxury pickup. Like the Chevy, the GMC received a recent update. This update brought some interesting options to the Limited Denali, like a lighter composite bed, MultiPro tailgate, up to 15 cameras, adaptive driving and a head-up display. But you also get dark walnut or dark ash wood trim, perforated leather, wireless phone charging and connectivity, power running boards and Super Cruise.
The $80,395 Denali Ultimate comes standard with the 6.2-liter V8, or a Duramax diesel is available.
Capstone Toyota Tundra
The Toyota Tundra Capstone is the top trim of the newly redesigned Tundra. It adds a striking two-tone leather interior with walnut trim, 22-inch wheels and all the options Toyota can add. It has electric running boards, available adaptive suspension and Toyota Safety Sense 2.5. The Tundra comes with the 3.5-liter i-FORCE MAX twin-turbo hybrid engine that produces a V8-beating 437 horsepower while using less gas. The Tundra Capstone starts at $74,230.
