7 Pickup Trucks That Dominate Nigerian Roads



There is overwhelming range of car body styles in the automotive industry, and pickup truck is one of them. Pickups are big and rugged light trucks designed to undergo somewhat rigorous tasks such as offroad trips. They come with an enclosed cab and an open cargo area with low sides and tailgate.

In this post, we will talk about the pickup trucks that dominate Nigerian roads. We see them in almost every part of the country. These are the trucks mostly imported into the country. Some of them are assembled here while one is made in Nigeria. People go for these trucks because of their ruggedness, off-road capabilities, versatility, availability of spare parts and lots more.  People have their various reasons for picking their choice of truck.
