Top 10 Reasons to Buy a Pickup Truck
With the value and options available today, just about everyone can enjoy the benefits of a pickup truck. Whether your an outdoors type, a suburbanite, or somewhere in between, you can enjoy the toughness, power and utility of these marvels of modern automotive engineering.
With pickup trucks claiming three spots out of ten on the list of top selling vehicles in 2017, there’s no question that trucks are hot.
Here’s a list of our top 10 reasons to buy a pickup truck.
1. Truck are no longer “penalty boxes.”
Today’s trucks ride like sedans.
Gone are the days when trucks had just a front seat and the ride was so bumpy you thought you might lose a kidney.
A super-smooth ride, roomy back seats, and four doors are standard now, as are many of the amenities on most sedans, including heated seats and keyless entry. The ride is comfortable and quiet (but ready to take on the world).
2. Trucks are the perfect weekend adventure vehicle.
Even though they’re a bit softer on the inside, pickup trucks are still designed to conquer difficult terrain. No matter what the road conditions, a modern pickup truck can push through and get you to your destination.
Whether you need to traverse an off-road trail to get to your favorite remote campsite or pound snowdrifts into submission to get to the ski resort, a good, properly equipped pickup can get you there.
3. Trucks tow your stuff.
Whether you’re taking the boat to Sloan’s Lake or Cherry Creek, the snowmobile to Steamboat Springs or Breckenridge, or your kids’ furniture to that first apartment, a pickup truck gives you the power to tow whatever you need. Many popular pickups can tow up to 12,000 pounds while the larger, heavy-duty models can pull up to 22,500 pounds or higher.
4. Trucks are affordable.
Used pickup truck models are especially affordable and often retain their value. At Dye Autos, we’ve got a large inventory of affordable pickup trucks for every budget.

5. Trucks grab attention.
In Denver, few vehicles command the same kind of attention as pickup trucks. For the type of person who demands that their vehicle “go big or go home” you can’t beat a pickup truck. Remember, being noticed is better than being ignored.
6. Trucks make you the hero of the neighborhood.
Your pickup truck can help score a few extra Good Samaritan credits by providing the grunt to give neighbors a tow when their cars get stuck in the snow. A pickup truck also makes it easier to help haul saplings — plus a jungle gym for the children — to the local park.
7. Trucks are safe.
First, you’re sitting high, so you can see better.
Today’s trucks also have the same safety features drivers look for in cars — four-wheel drive, electronic stability control system, air bags, dynamic braking, blind zone alerts, and so on. In addition, some have advanced safety features.
The high-strength steel body of some trucks is preferred by safety-conscious drivers over aluminum for a light but strong truck body.
8. Trucks are the ultimate tool box.
Trucks are now so common, it’s easy to overlook how important they are. But as they build and maintain the infrastructure that keeps society moving, their importance and usefulness as the ultimate tool just can’t be denied.
If there’s one tool that rules over all, it is the pickup truck. It’s both the ultimate tool and the ultimate toolbox; it can haul lumber, clear land and then serve as a repository for the tools needed to build a home.
9. Trucks are made for snow.
Winter tires on a sedan or a small hatchback will only get you so far. If the snow is deep enough, you can literally high-center a car once it gets packed underneath.
With the additional ground clearance afforded by a pickup, traversing 10 inches of fresh plow is no problem.
10. Trucks support ALL your activities.
Pickup trucks help you work hard and when it’s time to relax, they help you do that too!
Load your pickup truck bed with anything from lumber to furniture to camping equipment, and drive anywhere — even on the roughest terrain. You can even us your truck as a substitute family room while camping. Watch Netflix under the stars in your truck bed!
