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.
