Firm Names Best Trucks of Past 10 Years and AutoPacific have taken a look at all the new trucks sold in the last 10 years and made their picks for the most significant trucks of the decade. The trucks that made the list introduced cutting edge technologies and pushed the segment into new territory.

"Despite the economic challenges of the past two years, it's hard not to look back at the last ten years without calling it the decade of the pickup truck," said editor Mike Levine. "Sales of full-size pickups hit 2.56 million units in 2004 and Ford's F-Series trucks remain the nation's best-selling vehicles, 33 years in a row."

Though there are many trucks that had a significant impact in the last decade, it's clear that the 2009 Ford F-150 earned the title of "Most Significant".

"On balance, we thought the 2009 Ford F-150 was the most significant pickup of the last decade," said Jim Hossack, vice president of consulting for AutoPacific. "It sells in high volume, owners like it and its body, chassis and powertrain are all first rate. Features abound, and there are more models, series and options than can be counted. It's a good looking truck and suitable for the widest possible range of tasks and uses."

Below is the complete ranking of most significant trucks of the decade:

2000 Nissan Frontier Crew Cab
2001 Chevrolet Silverado / GMC Sierra Heavy Duty with 6.6-Liter Duramax Diesel
2002 Chevrolet Avalanche
2004 Nissan Titan
2005 Toyota Tacoma
2006 Honda Ridgeline
2007 Toyota Tundra
2009 Dodge Ram 1500
2009 Ford F-150
2010 Ford F-150 SVT Raptor
