For vehicles designed for rugged and practical use, pickups can actually be pretty expensive if you opt for all the available goodies from the dealership. Never mind the fact that most of those extra gadgets and upgrades have very little to do with the pickup's main job of hauling heavy cargo from place to place. Bluetooth connectivity is nice and all, but a truck's payload is far more important than being able to listen to your Spotify playlist.
Strip away all those extras, however, and you can actually purchase a decent pickup at an affordable price. Here's a list of models that you can purchase today for around P18,000 or less per month. Each monthly amortization was calculated using BPI's car loan calculator, and is based on a 10% downpayment over a five-year payment period. Happy truck shopping!
