3 Tips for Choosing Your Next Ford Truck

Ford has always been a powerhouse when it comes to providing top-notch trucks. Time and time again, they rank best-in-class for payload, towing, torque, and more! When choosing your next Ford truck, there are a few key considerations we recommend that you keep in mind.

Set a Budget

The price range for trucks is vast, making it important to set a budget before making your next purchase. With models beginning around $20,000 to over $70,000, having an ideal range in mind will help keep you in check when considering your options. Filling out our online Ford financing application can get you pre-approved today.

Determine Utility

An important consideration when purchasing a truck is its utility. Do you plan to haul multi-ton loads, haul trailers, or a large boat? If so, a heavy-duty truck will likely be the route to take. If not, light-duty or medium-duty might meet all of your needs. You’ll want to pay close attention to the manufacturer defined capacities for towing and cargo weight. Is long-distance travel in the cards for your next truck purchase? Gas mileage should be another important consideration especially if you’re planning long-distance travel often.

Consider Size

The size preference of your cab and truck bed are important factors to consider in your next purchase. Do you plan to lug the family around in your truck or just use it as a work truck? If the kids are piling in regularly, you’ll want to consider a four-door model with a larger cab. The Ford F-150 is a great four-door option that offers three cab sizes, regular, super, and supercrew.

With so many ways to customize your truck, there are an endless number of combinations available on the market. Leave it to the experts to answer any questions you may have during the buying process. Our inventory of Ford trucks will help you find just what you need.
