Things to Consider when Buying your Pickup Truck

By Sebastian Gaydos Subscribe to RSS | February 16th 2012 | Views:

Because of the pickup truck's many uses, it is a popular vehicle choice. It is preferred by carpenters, plumbers, and roofers. However, while pickup trucks are commonly used for work, they are also used for recreational purposes. For instance, campers are known to use them on trips because they can attach camper shells to the truck's bed. Whether it is for work or personal use, here are some things to consider if you're planning to buy a pickup truck.


The cab style of your pickup truck depends on your seating needs. If you plan to seat not more than three people, then you simply need the standard cab. For four or more, then you need to check out the extended cab and or the crew cab. Pick the cab style that gives you interior storage space, a comfortable seat, and that which allows you or your cargo to move in and out of the cab easily.

Truck Bed

Pickup trucks are available in different truck bed styles according to length. Depending on the bulk and length of your cargo, your truck should have the right truck bed length. Farmers or those in construction find the long truck bed more suitable for their cargo needs.

Hauling and Towing Needs

If you plan to haul or tow cargo weighing between 3,000 to 7,000 pounds, a compact truck properly equipped can be enough. For 8,000 pounds and above, a full size truck is more suitable, while heavy duty trucks with a fifth wheel connection can haul as much as 30,000 pounds. If you plan to get a pickup truck in Red Deer, be sure to consult with the Subaru Red Deer truck dealer for the truck with the right horsepower, torque, suspension, and axle ratio for your hauling or towing needs.


The kind of engine your truck should have depends on the power that you need for your cargo. With compact trucks, four to six cylinder engines are common, while full-size truck engines range from the six to eight cylinders, with V10 and diesel engines. Because of their weight and the power they use, truck engines are not known for their fuel economy. Be sure to factor in the operating cost when you buy your pickup truck. Consult your Subaru Red Deer pickup truck dealer for the fuel-efficient engine that can give you towing power.


Be sure the truck has standard safety features like front and side air bags, seatbelts, and electronic stability control system. If you plan to buy a used pickup truck, be sure to check with the used car dealers Edmonton has for the truck that has passed rigorous safety inspection tests.
