If you’re wondering about the reasons to buy a pickup truck, or you’re curious about the benefits of owning a pickup truck, you’ve come to the right place!


We sell a lot of trucks here at Rome Pre-Owned in the Rome NY area and we’ve found that our customers really love their trucks, and are often surprised by how resourceful they are. Here are 7 benefits you’ll enjoy when you own a pickup truck.


1. Pickup trucks support every activity

All it takes is a couch or armoire that needs to be moved from “here” to “there,” and next thing you know, you’re thinking you really should own a pickup truck.

But there are so many other activities that a pickup truck is perfect for:

  • Trucks are the perfect weekend adventure vehicle.
  • Trucks have the power to tow whatever you need.
  • Trucks haul everything from groceries to lumber to tools.
  • Trucks are a camper’s dream.
  • Pickup trucks help you work hard and when it’s time to relax, they help you do that too!


2. Pickup trucks are safer

It may seem obvious that larger pickup trucks are safer than small cars, but there are studies to back this up. “In its studies, the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) has found that a heavier vehicle will typically push a lighter one backward during the impact,” explains Edmunds.com. “As a result, there is less force on the occupants of the heavier vehicle and more on those in the lighter vehicle, according to IIHS. The organization’s fatality data bears this out.”


Additionally, sitting up high gives a driver an excellent field of view. The ability to see over traffic enables the driver to identify potential accidents sooner and react with more time than passenger car drivers, whose vision is hindered by other vehicles.


3. Pickup trucks are roomy

We know pickup trucks can haul just about anything, but people who haven’t ridden in a modern truck are always surprised by how roomy they are inside.


4. Pickup trucks are affordable

Pickup trucks offer more bang for your buck than most cars:


  • Enough power to tow or haul virtually anything
  • More interior space than a luxury car
  • Enough horsepower to get up and go
  • Enough room in the bed for two people to sleep comfortably
  • Surprisingly good fuel economy, given all the above


Combine all these merits into one vehicle and the result is surprisingly affordable.
