You might want a mid-size pickup truck or a heavy-duty truck that’s perfect for hauling or towing. You probably have a checklist of everything you’re looking for in a truck, things that will meet all your driving needs. Consider some of the following things when looking for the ideal truck and check out some of these trucks you may be interested in.

Things to Consider When Purchasing a Truck

Buying a truck is an important investment for your future. You want to be sure you buy the one that meets all the criteria on your checklist and doesn’t give you buyer’s remorse. You’ve been preparing and doing research to see which truck offers better fuel economy and has the best towing capacity. There are various capabilities, options, and features you can benefit from in the pickup trucks on the market today. Reviewing all of these possibilities can be stressful and overwhelming, but it doesn’t have to be.

Consider some of the following factors when deciding which truck to purchase:

Fuel Economy – The estimated gas mileage you’ll get when driving the truck is an important factor to consider. According to research completed by CarMax, the best MPG in the top-selling trucks for 2018 averaged 17 MPG for city driving and 24 MPG for highway driving. This was achieved in a mid-size truck, the GMC Canyon.

Towing Capacity – You may need to pull a trailer or maybe you’ll be transporting heavy loads. If you need a truck for towing and hauling purposes, then you need to pay attention to the towing capacity of the truck you’re interested in buying. For example, the GMC Canyon has a towing capacity of 7,700 pounds. Now, if you need a truck with heavy-duty towing capacity, then the GMC Sierra 3500 HD is better for your needs because it has a towing capacity of 23,300 pounds. In between you’ll find the rest of the Sierra series which will help you narrow down your needs based on their capabilities.

Horsepower/Torque – Horsepower is the power that an engine produces and keeps the vehicle moving at high speeds. The force that enables a vehicle to start moving when it’s stopped or effectively handle accelerating on hills and inclines, is called torque. Both of these factors are important when deciding which truck to buy. This is especially true if you need a truck that can haul heavy loads. The GMC Canyon with 3.6L V6 has 308 horsepower and 275 torque and the Sierra models go up from there.

Transmission Type – Another factor to consider is the transmission type for the truck. This is usually a personal preference. Not all trucks are available in a manual transmission but if you look around you’re sure to find some.

Engine Type – Do you want a truck with a 4, 6 or 8 cylinder engine? Do you prefer diesel or gas? These are important questions to ask yourself during the truck buying process and will be directly related to what the truck will be used for and how much power it needs.

Seating and Bed Size – Depending on the seating capacity you’ll need, you may want to consider a truck with the standard cab, crew cab, or double/extended cab. How often will be you traveling with passengers. How often will you need to use the truck bed and what will you be using it for? You need to answer that in order to decide if you want a truck with the standard truck bed length or one with a longer or shorter truck bed.

Once you figure out how important all of these factors are for your specific driving needs, you can then more easily identify which truck is better suited for your lifestyle.
