Things to know about your Chevy Truck

July 13th, 2022 by

It would be our pleasure to work with you personally before you select a truck, so take a look at a few of the most important questions you need to answer below. Then, visit our dealership to test drive some of our trucks for yourself.

The Drivetrain

One of the first factors you must consider if you are looking for a new pickup truck is the drivetrain. The vast majority of pickup trucks are made with either a 4-cylinder, 6-cylinder, or 8-cylinder engine. This is going to dictate the total amount of power that a pickup truck generates. If you feel like you need a pickup truck that has a lot of power, then you should look for a pickup truck that has an 8-cylinder engine. On the other hand, if you believe you can get by with a pickup truck that doesn’t have nearly as much power, you might be better off with a smaller engine. A 4-cylinder or 6-cylinder engine is typically going to be better on gas when compared to an eight-cylinder engine.

The Cabin and Bed Size

Next, you need to think about the size of the pickup truck bed and the cabin. You need to think about how many people will need to ride in the cabin at a single time. If you think you will need to fit a lot of people in the pickup truck, then you will need to purchase a cabin that has two rows of seats. You also need to think about the size of the pickup truck bed itself. For example, if you think you will need to have a lot of large equipment from place to place, you need to select a pickup truck that has a bed with more storage space. If you are thinking about storage space, there are other metrics to consider as well.

The Payload and Towing Capacity

In addition to the size of the pickup truck bed, you need to think about the payload and towing capacity. If you need to haul a lot of equipment from place to place, you need a pickup truck that has a substantial payload and towing capacity. The payload refers to the total weight of cargo you can put in the pickup truck bed. The towing capacity refers to the total amount of cargo you can pull behind a vehicle itself. In general, a pickup truck with a larger payload and towing capacity is not going to do as well on gas mileage, so think carefully about how much towing capacity you actually require.

The Durability

Finally, you need to consider the durability of the vehicle as well. Pickup trucks take a significant beating, and you need to make sure the pickup truck can stand up to the wear-and-tear you throw at it. For example, if you plan on taking your vehicle off-road, you need to select a pickup truck that can handle this type of driving style. If you know your vehicle is going to spend a lot of time outside, you need to select a pickup truck that can stand up to the elements. If you are curious about what pickup trucks are most durable, it would be our pleasure to help you.
