The pickup truck is an American staple. First invented in 1896, the pickup was stuffed with a 2-cylinder engine with an output of 4-horsepower. In fact, it was promoted as a horseless wagon over 100 years ago. Pickup trucks have come a long way since then as they now boast incredible power, tow heavy loads, and have plenty of room in the bed to transport those necessities.
Pickup trucks are attractive and can be found on the road just as much as any car. It would only make sense that some celebrities would be driving trucks, too. Here is a list of 20 celebrities that also drive cool pickup trucks. These are in no particular order.
20. Channing Tatum (Chevrolet 3100)
Channing Tatum, a top celebrity crush for women everywhere, is known for his love of fine machinery. Here he is seen with an attractive vintage Chevrolet 3100 pickup truck said to be worth about $50,000, which is likely chump change for the Magic Mike star. But, the fact that he rolls around in an old-school Chevy pickup gives him ample cool points in our book.
19. Willie Robertson (Ford F-150)
Known as the boss man on Duck Dynasty, Willie Robertson, also had some big trucks on the show. Recently, Willie picked up this custom Ford F-150 truck that appears to fit his personality perfectly. In fact, this new Ford should have no problem tackling the off-road to the blind for some good old duck hunting.
18. Lady Gaga (SVT Lightning)
Lady Gaga can be seen rolling around in a first-generation Ford SVT Lightning pickup, a favorite among Ford enthusiasts. The famous singer finally received her driver's license back in 2016, and now she drives around in style and power thanks to a 5.8-liter V8 stuffed under the hood. There are plenty of people who wouldn't mind driving around a 240-horsepower Lightning as their first vehicle.
17. Shaquille O'Neal (Ford F-650 Extreme)
Shaquille O'Neal is one of the most recognizable and famous basketball players to ever play the game. This Ford F-650 Extreme is fitting for a man who stands an inch over 7-feet tall. Stuffed inside the engine bay of this massive truck is a highly capable 6.7-liter Powerstroke V8 engine.

14. Kid Rock (GMC Sierra)
Kid Rock has been around for a long time producing mega hits. Back in the day, you couldn't go anywhere without hearing "Cowboy" everywhere you went.

Famous skier, Glen Plake, has brought interest back to the winter sport. Another car nut, Plake is said to have quite a collection of vehicles. One of his favorites is this 1959 Chevrolet that he sold but regretted immediately. While sitting on an airplane, Plake was hit hard by the thoughts of his old '59 Chevy and was wishing how he still owned it.
