Pickup trucks are more appealing than ever, and they offer a wide range of advantages over sedans. If you’re on the hunt for a new ride and are thinking a pickup might be right for you, there are a few factors that could tip the scales toward a truck instead of a car.
Because cars are less popular these days, there aren’t as many new options as you’d find with trucks. Ford, for example, offers three great options: the midsize Ranger, full-size F-150, and heavy-duty Super Duty®. Ford will also be adding a smaller truck to the lineup in 2022 as well as an all-electric version of the F-150. While you can find quality pre-owned examples of cars like the Fusion at Two Rivers Ford, the only new car Ford offers is the Mustang. If you’re not looking for a sports car, a truck may be the better option.
You might think of trucks being mostly handy when it comes to towing, hauling, and off-roading. While that’s true, modern trucks can also prove superior choices if you’re looking for a family vehicle. The all-new 2021 Ford F-150, for example, offers spacious seating for up to six in its cozy interior as well as cutting-edge safety technologies. At higher trim levels, the F-150 even rivals luxury vehicles in terms of quality and tech.
The power to do more
Maybe the biggest advantage of owning a truck is what you can do with it. If you buy a truck instead of a car, you won’t have to worry as much about your trip to the hardware store or garden center. You can bank on your Ranger offering ample space in the bed for your cargo and delivering plenty of power to get where you’re going. Add the ability to tow trailers and boats to your vacation destination and impressive off-road abilities, and a Ford truck is plenty appealing if you lead an active lifestyle.
