Pickup Truck

Pickup trucks, also spelled pick-up, are vehicles built for work. Their open beds, closed cabins and powerful V8 engines were originally supposed to haul, carry, tow, push or [insert verb here]. Today, pickup trucks have changed. While work trucks are still available, most pickup trucks offer more luxury that outright utility.

There are a couple of different types of pickup trucks for sale and they’re full size and midsize. Full size pickups are the most popular in the United States and include the Ford F150, Chevrolet Silverado and Dodge Ram. Full size pickup trucks come with a wide variety of cab and box combinations.

Shoppers looking to buy a pickup truck for hauling the kids should consider a crew cab which offer four full-size doors and a roomy backseat. An extended cab has a smaller back seat, but offers larger bed options which is good for drivers working on construction sites. A regular cab is the bare-bones option that is all work with very little in the way of refinement or luxury.

Midsize pickups are less popular but certain brands like Toyota and Nissan have achieved acclaim with their respective models like the Tacoma and the Frontier. Another category, sport utility trucks, combine the interior space of an SUV and the box of a pickup. These include the Chevy Avalanche, Honda Ridgeline and Ford Explorer Sport Trac. The Avalanche and Sport Trac have been discontinued citing poor sales while the Ridgeline is due for a redesign in 2015. Nonetheless, sport utility trucks hold their value better than most midsize pickups.
