The Pickup Truck is a traffic vehicle that has appeared in a number of Need for Speed installments. Throughout the series it has been featured with different appearances.
It can't be driven 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.
