Which Pickup Truck is Best for Me?

There are so many reasons people consider purchasing a pickup truck. Homeowners like them for trips to the home supply store or taking larger items to the dump. Other people like them for their ruggedness and ability to handle any terrain and any weather. No matter what reason you’re considering purchasing a pickup truck, it’s important to understand which pickup truck best suits your needs. At Sunset Truck, we help truck buyers from Seattle and its environs determine which pickup truck is best for their needs and get a great deal.

How will You use Your Pickup Truck

One of the first things to think about when purchasing a pickup truck is how you’ll use it. Are you planning to use it for light duty activities such as moving furniture or home supply store materials? Are you planning to use your pickup truck to blaze trails or move heavy, oversized items? Perhaps a combination of the two? Depending on how you’re planning to use your pickup, you’ll be able to narrow down your options.

For lighter duty use, a small or midsize pickup is probably what you’re looking for. Depending on other needs, you may want to select a double cab and/or an extended bed length. Pickup trucks like these fit easily on roads and in traffic. They’re easy to park, too. They likely won’t help you tow someone out of a ditch or move a heavy boulder.

If you’re looking to do more heavy duty jobs like towing, moving boulders or slogging through rough terrain, a heavy duty pick up is probably up your alley. These pickup trucks also come with larger cab and longer bed options so you can fit your family and a large tool box.
