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.)
