Here in the good old U.S. of A., nothing is more American than baseball and apple pie, right? Well, that’s true in regards to sports and desserts, but when it comes to vehicles, the pickup truck is about as American as it gets. There’s just something about owning a truck that makes you stand a little taller, speak a little more freely, and want to live life to the absolute fullest.
Or, perhaps it’s because more than any other vehicle, a pickup truck encapsulates the American spirit. It’s tough as nails; it works hard even when pushed to the limits, and it’s flexible enough to perform everything that’s asked of it, whether you’re hauling a ton of rocks or you’re taking your loved one out to a romantic dinner.
Deep down, every car owner wants to own a truck. And, at PCH.com, we’re in the business of making dreams come true! Enter our Truck Sweepstakes today for your chance at winning a fully-stocked 2017 Ford F-150 pickup valued at $65,549.00. Still not sure what’s so special about owning a truck? Here are three key reasons why owning a truck (or better yet, winning one!) just makes sense.
#1: Trucks Are Considerably Safer Than Other Vehicles
Unlike the old “beater” your granddad used to drive, today’s trucks come equipped with the same advanced safety features found in most cars, such as multi-zoned air bags, electronic stability control, dynamic braking systems, blind zone alerts, and more. In fact, the 2017 Ford F150 is equipped with so many advanced safety features that it gets the government’s highest 5-star overall crash test rating.
In addition, when you’re driving a truck, you are provided a better view of the road ahead of you because you’re sitting up higher than you would be if you were in a car. The fact that a truck is the ultimate all-weather vehicle also helps make it one of the safest vehicles on the road. After all, why do you think so many emergency vehicles are trucks?
#2: Trucks Offer the Most Flexibility
Have a camper you need to tow? Only a truck has the torque to pull it. Have a friend who needs to move? A pickup truck’s bed offers more storage real estate than any car on the market. Need to remodel your home? A truck makes getting your drywall and appliances from the home improvement store to your home so much easier.
It’s no contest; a truck is the most flexible vehicle on the road. It can literally handle anything you can throw at it whereas a car limits what you can do and where you can go. If your lifestyle involves more than just driving to and from work, then a truck will offer you the freedom to do just about anything.
#3: Trucks Provide Maximum Comfort
If you think that truck interiors are noisy, uncomfortable, and bouncy, then you haven’t been in a truck in years. Today’s trucks offer all of the comfort and luxury of modern cars, including whisper-quiet interiors, an ultra-smooth ride, high-end audio and navigation, and plush, comfortable seating. Today’s trucks are so easy and comfortable to drive, they’re solid choices for every type of driver.
A Truck Opens Up a World of Possibilities
A truck has the power to transform your life. From helping you get the job done quicker to getting you to the theater in style and comfort, a truck offers endless uses and benefits. Ask yourself – what would you do or be able to accomplish if you had a brand new truck?
