We have a variety of premier trucks on our lot for you to choose from. Finding the perfect truck that fits your lifestyle can be tricky. We have compiled a list of factors to consider when purchasing the truck for you!
What will be your primary use of the truck? Are you planning to tow, is it for camping, or just your commuting vehicle? Knowing the use of your truck narrows down what you need to look for.
2. Towing Capacity
Many people buy a truck so they can tow campers, trailers, and other vehicles. Every truck isn’t made the same. Some trucks can pull thousands more pounds than others. For example, the Ford F-150 can tow up to 10,000 lbs while a Toyota Tacoma can only pull up to 3,500 lbs.
3. Power and Engine Size
Engine size and power is just as important as towing capacity. A smaller, 4-cylinder engine may not provide you with the power you desire from your truck, but it will save money on gas. For smaller payloads, 4-cylinders are perfect, but if you plan on towing large boats, consider a V6 or V8.
If you are planning on frequently moving lumber or long materials, you want to have a bed that will accommodate your needs. Be sure that the truck bed will fit your needs.
7. Two-Wheel Drive vs. Four-Wheel Drive
4 wheel drive improves traction in dangerous driving conditions, such as snow, ice, rocks, and other scenarios that can make control difficult. Utah’s cold climates often call for 4×4. Take a comprehensive look at your driving habits and the use of your future truck, to know which option to choose.
8. Fuel Economy
It is essential to know the gas mileage of any auto investment. Most trucks range between 15-20 MPG, when combining city and highway. For specifics on gas mileage, browse our inventory for details.
