What are the unique and bad-ass used pickup trucks from the last several years to buy? Here is our Top 5 list.

5. Hummer H3T Alpha

The midisize pickup trucks are getting very hot again. However, the Hummer H3T Alpha is one truck you will not see coming and going at most intersections. Just around 1,300 units of the Alpha were produced for the 2010 model year. The H3T was based on the GM midsize truck platform, and the Alpha version of it came with a 5.3L V8. This boosted the towing capacity 5,900 lbs and gave the truck a much-need boost. Oh yeah, and it is a Hummer with plenty of ground clearance and a capable 4×4 system.

4. 2014 Ford F-150 Tremor

The Tremor was not a much-anticipated follow up to the Lightning sport truck. However, it did combine the 3.5L EcoBoost V6 engine and the regular cab short bed F-150 all into one. The Tremor package came with bucket seats and was available in 2WD or 4×4/AWD.

3. Titan NISMO Off-Road

The first generation Nissan Titan had a lot going for it and the heart of the truck was the 5.6L gas V8. This engine was torquey and the stock exhaust system had an aggressive sound, but all things can be improved. This is precisely what the NISMO Off-Road version of the truck did. Nissan offered performance air intake and exhaust system for the Titan to boost the power and unleash even more V8 sound.

2. Chevy Silverado SS

What do you get when you combine a big 6.0L V8 with an all-wheel-drive system in a half-ton pickup truck? You get the Silverado SS. The truck was only available in a smaller extended cab version (not a crew cab), and you could have it in 2WD as well. The result is quick truck with a healthy V8 rumble.

1. Toyota Tundra TRD Supercharged

What if you could have a supercharged V8 pickup truck with over 500 horsepower that was flat-out fast and got better fuel economy on the highway than a stock truck? How about the Toyota Tundra with the dealer-installed TRD supercharger. It’s a shame Toyota no longer offers a supercharger for the Tundra (or the Tacoma). The factory-approved power boost was available until 2015.

Bonus: Ram SRT-10

If a supercharged V8 truck is not enough for you, there is a bonkers pickup that may be just for you – the Dodge Ram SRT-10. Take the V10 out of the Dodge Viper and stuff it under the hood of the Ram 1500. Throw in the 6-speed manual transmission and you have a recipe for going fast and roasting the rear tires. The Ram SRT-10 was only available in rear-wheel-drive.

We know there are a few other trucks that deserve to be on this list, but these are the ones that stand out the most.
