Pickup trucks have come a long way from their humble, provincial origins as workhorses for blue-collar workers. By the turn of the century, they gained luxury trim, more amenities, and the status of an all-American family vehicle. General work and family duties aside, trucks now boast a new feature: speed.

Many tuning houses like Hennessy and Shelby will add forced induction to any truck to make it worthwhile. However, the major manufacturers are now in the game. Whether powered by oil or electricity, more than a handful of trucks can claim 0-60 mph times of under 5 seconds. Here are the five fastest, according to US News.
