MotorTend Image© Provided by MotorTrend MotorTend Image Ford, Ram, Nissan, Hyundai, and Toyota all brought new trucks to the Detroit auto show this year. Four of the five reveals are confirmed for production, while the lone concept has a good chance of making it into production if the automaker has done its homework like it claims. But the question is: Which one stole the show?

Let us know what you think in the comments below, but first, here's a recap of Detroit's truck debuts.

2017 Ford F-150 Raptor
The 2017 Ford F-150 Raptor may be the most popular pickup among the hardcore off-road crowd. The previous model's thirsty 6.2-liter V-8 and six-speed automatic combo has been replaced by a more powerful and efficient second-generation 3.5-liter EcoBoost V-6 mated to a 10-speed automatic. Other updates include a unique frame, a new transfer case that is said to combine the best features of all-wheel-drive and four-wheel-drive systems, larger shocks with more suspension travel, and new tires.

2015 Ram 1500 Rebel
While not as hardcore as the new Raptor, the 2015 Ram 1500 Rebel adds an aggressive-looking option to the Ram lineup. Up front, it has a completely redesigned grille with large "RAM" emblems front and rear. Engine choices include the 305-hp Pentastar V-6 or 395-hp 5.7-liter Hemi V-8 backed by an eight-speed automatic and a 3.92 rear end gear ratio. The 3.0-liter EcoDiesel V-6 isn't available on the rebellious Ram. The Ram 1500 Rebel features red interior trim and is available with a two-tone paint job.

2016 Nissan Titan, Titan XD
Rounding out the full-size pickups is the redesigned 2016 Nissan Titan and new Titan XD model. The Titan XD slots between traditional half-ton pickups and heavy duty three-quarter ton pickups. At first, the 2016 Nissan Titan XD will debut with a new 310-hp/555-lb-ft Cummins 5.0-liter turbodiesel V-8 backed by an Aisin six-speed automatic. A V-8 gas engine will be available after launch in the Titan XD. That V-8, likely an updated version of the current 5.6-liter, and a base V-6 will also be available in the regular half-ton Titan.

2016 Toyota Tacoma
After 10 long years on the market, the current Toyota Tacoma will be replaced by a new model for the 2016 model year. While the 2.7-liter I-4 will carry over for the 2016 Toyota Tacoma, the current model's 4.0-liter V-6 will be replaced by the automaker's 3.5-liter V-6. A new six-speed auto will back both engines, while the V-6 will be available with a six-speed manual. Toyota redesigned the Tacoma's looks (slightly), upgraded the interior with a new infotainment system, and added new safety tech.

Hyundai Santa Cruz Crossover Truck Concept
Although not confirmed for production, the Hyundai Santa Cruz Crossover Truck Concept could hit the streets to meet the demands of "urban adventurers." Power comes from a 190-hp/300 lb-ft 2.0-liter turbodiesel I-4, and it could see fuel economy in the upper 30-mpg range. The Santa Cruz Crossover Truck concept features four seats and a small bed with lockable tonneau. The bed is convenient for carrying larger or dirty items owners would not want to store inside. Some called it the return of the Subaru Brat.
