The newest pickups of all sizes are on display at the 2022 Portland International Auto Show.

The best-selling vehicles in America have been full-sized trucks in recent years, including the Ford F-Series, Ram Trucks, and Chevy Silverado.

However, not everyone needs that much truck, and manufacturers are now producing a growing number of smaller trucks. Four trucks accelerate that trend in 2022, including the first two compact trucks produced in many years and two redesigned midsize trucks.

The all-new compact Ford Maverick is a unibody truck that comes standard with a four-door crew cab, front-wheel-drive and a hybrid powerplant estimated at 42 city mpg. The Maverick can also be ordered with a turbocharged 2.0-liter EcoBoost engine that produces 250 horsepower, all-wheel-drive, and an off-road package. The starting price is around $20,000.

The front end of the midsize unibody Honda Ridgeline has been completely redesigned for a more truck-like appearance. A new Honda Performance Development package gives it a bolder look. It comes standard with a four-door Crew Cab, all-wheel-drive, and 3.5-liter engine that produces 280 horsepower.

The most traditional new small truck is the completely redesigned 2022 Nissan Frontier. It is available as a two-door King Cab or four-door Crew Cab. Rear-wheel-drive is standard, and four-wheel-drive is available. The standard engine is a 3.8-liter V6 that produces 310 horsepower.

Other 2022 midsize trucks include the Chevy Colorado, Ford Ranger, GMC Canyon, Jeep Gladiator, and Toyota Tacoma.

The 2022 Portland International Auto Show runs Feb. 24-27 at the Oregon Convention Center.
