What do America’s top three best-selling vehicles have in common? They’re all pickup trucks.
It’s no secret that the U.S. has long been a truck-loving nation. But as automakers refine the ride and handling of pickups, more drivers are starting to see them as the jack-of-all-trades. After all, no other vehicle can boast the space and comfort of an SUV with the unmatched towing and cargo-carrying abilities of a truck.
But it’s this versatility that makes shopping for a pickup much different—and more difficult—than shopping for a car. So how do you find the truck that’s right for you?
Always start with an honest evaluation of how you plan to use your new truck. Then, choose the options that will best meet those needs.
WHAT TO LOOK FOR WHEN BUYING A TRUCK
Here are some important factors to consider when searching for your perfect truck.
INSURANCE FOR NEW TRUCKS
While your new vehicle will lose some of its value the minute you drive it off the lot, that doesn’t mean your insurance coverage should take a hit, too.
Ask us about adding the New Auto Security endorsement to your auto quote. If your new car gets totaled, ERIE will pay you the cost to replace it with the newest comparable model year (minus your deductible). (And if you’ve had your car longer than two years, ERIE will pay the cost to replace it with a comparable model that is up to two years newer and up to $30,000 fewer miles than the current mileage of your car, minus the deductible.)

I can understand how a business could really benefit from getting the right trucks to help them be more efficient. It could allow them to be more efficient if they get it custom made from a professional. It was interesting to learn about how a big truck bed is around 8 feet long, while a big cab has four doors.

It was helpful when you explained that bed sizes for pickup trucks can be either short, regular, or long. My husband wants to buy a used pickup truck so he can have the bed customized with a ladder rack to store his work tools and equipment. I appreciate you teaching me about the available options for truck bed sizes so we'll be more informed about our options before shopping!

You made a good point when you shared that it is important to determine the size of a vehicle you really need. My uncle just mentioned the other day that he is planning to get a truck since his old one is no longer working well after he let his son use it to go to school. I will suggest to him looking for a reliable place that offers a used truck at an affordable price.

It is interesting that this post mentioned that when choosing a pickup truck, it is important for us to consider the size. It makes sense for us to choose the size wisely as it will ensure that we choose or hire the right service. Assuming that I need a pickup service, I will definitely keep this information in mind.

Thanks for explaining that pickup trucks can provide towing services. My cousin needs her car to be towed since it broke down on the freeway. Since she doesn't know anyone with a pickup truck, she should hire a towing service to get professionals with the best equipment to help her get to a mechanic.

I'll try my best to come up with how much cab and bed size I need. I have always wanted a truck. But I just need to find a place that will have replacement parts for the cabs and beds.

It helped when you said that it is essential to know how much space we need both inside and out when searching for a truck. My husband and I are planning to buy a Toyota truck next month so this is helpful. We are also hoping to find experts who can keep our vehicle in top running condition.

It's great that you elaborated that you should consider knowing and understanding the size of your truck to know the best options. Yesterday, my uncle mentioned that he was hoping to find truck parts and accessories for outfitting a modern type of truck. He asked if I had any idea what would be the best option to consider. Thanks to this instructive article, I'll tell him he can consult a well-known truck accessories company as they can help him gather more information about the best accessories.

Thank you for making it clear so we can calculate how much room we'll need inside and outside the truck. My sister wants to purchase a vehicle to haul her equipment to and from businesses. I'll advise her to estimate the amount of space she needs from the inside out.
It's interesting to know that luxury features for pick-up trucks would be having heated leather seats, infotainment systems, and power tailgates. I think I want truck seats that have heating, because I easily get cold. So I hope to get those kinds of upgrades once I have my own vehicle this year.

Thanks so much for talking about how you should consider how much space you need both inside and outside of the truck you're buying. I have a friend who works out of his truck most of the time and he's been wanting an upgrade to better his organization for his tools so he can find things easier. We've been looking into finding a custom auto body builder to help him get the bed of the new truck to hold what he needs to put all his tools in.

I appreciate you saying that if you buy a heavy-duty truck, you should be prepared to pay more at the pump and ride rougher. My sister's septic system's pump is jammed. I'll advise her to hire a pump truck.
