The Pickup Truck is a traffic vehicle that has appeared in a number of Need for Speed instalments. Throughout the series it has been featured with different appearances.
It is unplayable in any game of the series except for Need for Speed: Most Wanted in Event 42 of the Challenge Series. For this event, the Pickup truck is equipped with a small nitrous upgrade and must be used by the player to dodge six roadblocks at Heat Level 3.
- In Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit 2, it is depicted to be based on the 1998–2007 2-door Chevrolet Silverado and can be spotted in blue only.
- The Pickup Truck in Need for Speed: Underground and Need for Speed: Underground 2 resembles the 1998–2007 Chevrolet Silverado again, but with a different appearance to that seen from Hot Pursuit 2. It also has eight different liveries in game files, but only one of them is used in both games.
- Need for Speed: Underground Rivals, Need for Speed: Most Wanted 5-1-0 and Need for Speed Carbon: Own the City feature the Pickup Truck as a replica of the Nissan Hardbody.
- The Pickup Truck is based on the second generation Dodge Ram in Need for Speed: Most Wanted, Need for Speed: Carbon, and Need for Speed: World. It is only seen in blue, although it appears in other colours in World as well.
- Pickup Trucks in Need for Speed: Undercover are based on the Dodge Ram 50, although the PlayStation Portable release features a version based on the Nissan Hardbody.
- The Pickup Truck featured in the PC, Xbox 360, and PlayStation 3 releases of Need for Speed: Undercover is based on the Pickup Truck seen in Burnout Paradise.
