Debuting with the release of MotorStorm: Pacific Rift, these massive-wheeled racing machines are only rivalled by the Big Rigs, and will destroy anything in their path and opponents who are unlucky enough to be caught under their massive wheels. Just like Big Rigs, this new class of vehicles can easily plow through deep terrain that would otherwise hold down most other classes. The only trouble with Monster Trucks are that they are rather understeer-heavy, and are very easily toppled over, so fast/sharp corners are the most hazardous areas for them. They have returned in MotorStorm: Apocalypse, although there are only four models usable, two of which are new designs.

- In MotorStorm: Apocalypse, the Monster Trucks' engines have recycled Big Rig engine sounds.
- Monster Trucks are not featured in MotorStorm: Arctic Edge.
- It seems by its description in Motorstorm RC that it can drive very well in the Arctic, obviously due their large, treaded tires.
- Though Monster Trucks are capable of running over smaller vehicles, it is best avoided since even running over an ATV can lead to a problematic imbalance.
- Monster trucks are the only class to date, which can recover from flipping over. When any other class rolls over it usually results in: the driver falling off, the vehicle wrecking, or the vehicle being unable to get back on its wheels. However, the monster truck's roof never caves in and its over-sized wheels allow it to flip itself back up onto its wheels.
The name says it all. However, most Monster Trucks are either regular vehicle bodies on a giant suspension or carbon fiber body panels on a pipe frame. But no matter what kind it is, all Monster Trucks have giant wheels.
