Pickup Trucks – Power, Speed, and Versatility Combined

When you need a strong vehicle to get heavy stuff moving, you can’t go wrong with getting a truck. Because of their power and versatility, trucks are a common sight in today’s streets. Their impressive performance has also caught the attention of casual drivers, making them very popular buys in different car dealerships.

The trucks popularity across the world has earned them different namesakes. Australians colloquially call these pickup trucks as ‘utes’ (short for utility), while they are known in Romania as ‘slippers’, and ‘half truck’ in Egypt. The most popular trucks are called pickup trucks, and are built like toned-down versions of heavy trucks. As they grew popular Japanese manufacturers came up with smaller pickup styles and built pickups for American manufacturers like Chevrolet, Ford and Dodge and making trucks available to the average family.

As a testament to their versatility, pickup trucks have various builds and features designed for different purposes. Aside from the compact pickup designs, full-sized pickups are manufactured to provide extra room for heavy loads, most of them capable of carrying at least thrice the maximum load carried by other types of vehicles. Dual-wheel pickups are even more powerful than other pickups, and are designed for towing all but the heaviest payloads.

When it comes to power, a lot of truck enthusiasts think of muscle trucks. These trucks look bulkier than normal pickups, and are even better at moving cargo. For navigating difficult terrain there are sport utility trucks—deriving from SUV or Crossovers—equipped with different features that help them go where most vehicles can’t go.

Dealers selling used trucks in Edmonton offer options like the Ram and the Silverado. The Dodge Ram is a full-size pickup truck marketed with antilock 4-wheel disc brakes, front and rear heavy duty shock absorbers and limited-slip differential rear axle to provide better control on the road. It’s 6.7L I6 Cummins Turbo Diesel engine, 6-speed manual transmission, and 3.42 rear axle ratios give it a fine mix of power, speed, and fuel efficient.

The Chevrolet Silverado is one of the most popular used trucks Edmonton dealers offer their buyers, and are available in different versions: regular, extended or crew cab. The Silverado is powered by a Vortec 4.3L V6 engine, automatic transmission, 195 horsepower, and traction control system.

Dealers selling used trucks in Edmonton offer the Silverado at around $ 21,000 and the Ram at $48,000, but older versions are priced lower. These vehicles have different features, but both are designed for pretty much the same purposes, so choosing between the two boils down to personal preference. For more information regarding the Ram and the Silverado trucks, you may visit ramtrucks.com or chevrolet.com.
