Buy a Pickup Truck

Buy a Pickup Truck Today!

Why buy a pickup truck…Owning a home might be widely considered the American dream. When it comes to owning a vehicle, however, nothing seems more American than driving a truck. Sales numbers show that Americans love their trucks. From January to August 2016, the Ford F-Series, Chevy Silverado, Ram pickups and GMC Sierra combined for more than 1.3 million units sold – and that is just the top four trucks.

Sure, arguments could be made that trucks retain their value well and are known for being durable. There are other reasons, though, why you should consider putting a pickup in your garage.

Buying a Pickup Truck

POWER: Nothing is more American than a powerful vehicle. Some people might need a fuel-efficient subcompact for long commutes. Others, though, want a powerful vehicle, and modern trucks deliver. The most powerful trucks of 2015 delivered 360-440 horsepower. You won’t save a fortune at the gas station, but you will be able to head off-road and haul a big load. For many, that is just fun – hitch up the camper-trailer and head out to a national park. For others, it’s a necessity – hauling equipment for work, navigating tough worksites and more. Either way, you should seriously consider a Ford F-Series, Chevy Silverado or any number of other pickup trucks from Auction Direct USA in Jacksonville FL, Rochester NY or Raleigh NC.
CARGO ROOM: Need to haul stuff? Throw it in the back of the truck. Whether you need to haul off a few limbs from the yard or you carry equipment for a living on a daily basis, your trusty pickup is a life-saver. You don’t have to remove or fold down seats to make room for your cargo.
LUXURY: What, luxury? With modern trucks, yes. It used to be that a truck was a work vehicle. When you bought a truck, you got a bench seat, a basic sound system and – well, that’s about it. Those days are long gone. Today’s trucks come with (heated) leather seats, touch-screen infotainment systems, amazing stereos, push-button all-wheel drive, impressive safety features and much more. Purchase a used truck from the past couple of years, and it’s like getting a luxury car on bigger tires.
TRUCKS ARE USEFUL AND FUN: Moving is an inevitable part of life. A truck makes moving yourself or helping someone else move much easier. And if you decide to tackle a home-improvement project or some yard work, a truck will be your best friend. After the work is over, it’s time to play. Take the same truck for an off-road adventure. With modern pickup trucks, you’ll be heading into the great wide open in style – surrounded by luxury with lots of room.

Pickup Truck Advantage

Pickup Trucks – Great Advantage over Cars

Not only are pickup trucks icons of American culture that are remarkably fun to drive, but they also have several practical advantages over other vehicles. From helping make jobs easier to additional power, durability and safety, buying a pickup truck can be a most advantageous purchase!

Get the Job Done with Pickup Trucks

With a pickup truck, you can move just about anything! Of course, the larger the truck bed, the more things you can carry. This makes everything from packing camping gear for a family trip to carrying work equipment to and from a job site incredibly easy. A vehicle like a certified pre-owned GMC Sierra pickup is a great full-sized truck that is perfect for construction workers, contractors, and families alike.  They certainly make getting the job – and the fun – completed considerably easier!

Increased Strength and Durability

Because pickup trucks are designed for hauling, their engines are optimized for strength and durability. These engines are created to carry extremely heavy objects without compromising the safety or the quality of your ride. The bed of the pickup truck is another feature that adds to durability. Because the beds are separate from the cab of the truck, it allows for a more flexible chassis. This makes it possible for the truck to pull, tow and haul heavier objects easily. In addition to increased power and durability, pickup trucks, like the GMC Sierra, have additional horsepower and torque, giving them a distinct advantage over other automobiles and making them exceptionally fun to drive.

Pickup Trucks Provide Additional Safety

Pickup trucks are built for safety, and because of this, may provide extra protection than the average car. The frames and bodies are built with strong metal that can keep you safe in case of an accident. Pickup trucks also sit higher that most standard automobiles allowing for a better view of the road. They also are built to handle better in bad weather, such as hail, heavy rain and snow.

Endless Possibilities

Owning a pickup truck opens up so many more possibilities than owning a car or an SUV. The potential for fun and excitement in addition to the practicality of a truck make owning one so very enticing. If you are a contractor, landscaper or construction worker, pickup trucks add credibility to your profession. They are ideal for dirty work and doing some serious hauling. They’re also fun when used for hauling bikes, sports equipment and everything else needed for a weekend getaway with your family and friends. With the versatility pickup trucks offer, the possibilities are truly endless!
