The time has finally come. You are now in the thick of a used pickup truck search, and you’re striking out wherever you go. The first thing to ask is, what are you looking for in a used truck? And the second is, are you going to the right dealership? We are here to help answer both of those questions as succinctly as possible. No matter what you need out of a pickup truck, it’s vital that you have a checklist of things that you’re looking for as you go through your search. There is no bigger mistake than just walking into a dealership without something in mind. That is why, as you continue reading down below, you’ll hopefully get a better idea of the things you should be looking out for in your used truck search!
What are the key factors in a pickup truck?
The very first thing you need to decide is how much passenger capacity you’re looking for. There are many different cab sizes out there, and once you widdle this town, that dramatically changes what trucks you should be keeping an eye out for. Typically, two-person cabs are cheaper, but if you have a family, it might be prudent to have a larger cab. The next important thing is the engine. Many people turn to trucks in order to do most of their towing, and if that is the case with you, then it will be extra vital to buy a truck that has the kind of performance you need for towing heavy loads or handling rough terrain. If you just want something for light daily use, then it might be okay to go for a smaller-sized engine. With most every truck, the next question becomes, do you need two-wheel or four-wheel drive? For that, you need to ask yourself what you are intending on using the truck for. For someone needing a truck for off-roading, or extra traction, it’s highly recommended that you find a 4x4 truck. Finally, decide how long of a bed you need. Long, short, whatever sounds like it matches your needs.
What trucks do we have to offer?
Now that you’ve learned about certain aspects of a truck that you should be deciding on, it’s time to look through our own inventory to tell you what these models have to offer. We have a few Ford F-150 models in stock. They vary in model year and trim, but they do not vary in how reliable they have proven themselves to be over the years. One of these models, a 2016 Ford F-150 Limited, comes with a 3.5-liter twin-turbocharged V6 engine, and a six-speed automatic transmission. The cab gives you four doors, which means added room for all of your family or friends. Another truck to keep an eye out for is a Ram 1500. Over the years these trucks have gained traction as some of the best options on the market today. One option, a 2017 Ram 1500 Laramie, gives you a 5.7-liter HEMI V8 engine, four doors, and a long list of standard equipment. Finally, for something that isn’t as heavy-duty as those other options, you might consider a Honda Ridgeline. These trucks give you a great interior, a 3.5-liter V6 engine, and a comfortable ride, no matter where you go.
