Shopping for a truck is not the same thing as shopping for a car because many trucks are used as working vehicles and have special features or custom features. In recent years trucks have gone from being strictly work vehicles to operating as everyday rides and recreational vehicles. There are many options to choose from when purchasing a used truck in Beebe AR.

Don’t Get in Over Your Head

Prices for used trucks in Beebe AR can vary greatly depending on what you are looking for and you can easily get sucked in to looking at bigger and more expensive trucks. Take a good look at your budget before you go test driving trucks to see exactly how much you can afford to spend. If you are buying a truck that will be used for work, you will want to coordinate that through the company’s financial advisor. You can get a good idea as to what the prices are for many trucks by doing online searches and narrowing down the features that you want.

Deciding on Light-Duty, Medium-Duty or Heavy-Duty

If you know how much you will be towing or carrying in the truck you will be able to narrow down which size truck is the best one to fit your needs. Trucks are rated in several different ways that all correspond with each other. There are half ton trucks, three quarter ton trucks and one ton trucks. Trucks are also often listed by their numbers such as 1500, 2500 or 3500. Some trucks are listed by lower number such as 150, 250 or 350. This depends on the make of the truck and which designation they use. The light duty trucks will have less cargo carrying ability and a lower towing capacity than the medium or heave duty trucks.

How Much Room Do You Need? – Understanding Cab Sizes

Manufacturers offer trucks with three different sized can options. The regular cab offers just a single row seat. A crew cab gives owners four full size doors and a large backseat that is big enough for car seats or leggy teens. Some manufacturers offer a mega cab which has even more leg room than the crew cab. The size of the cab often will affect how long the bed is which can sometimes mean that trucks with more seating have a smaller load capacity.
