Reasons to Choose a Truck When Shopping for a Vehicle

October 8th, 2014

George Kell Motors of Newport, Arkansas, sells trucks—lots of them. Why are trucks popular? There are so many reasons.


If you’re a tall person, over 6’, little cars can be very uncomfortable—you’re squished in. However, trucks typically have the right amount of space for tall people to sit comfortably.


Trucks allow the driver to sit up high above the road. The advantage is that drivers can see over cars and know what’s up ahead—better sight-lines. Cars that are low to the ground have no idea how long the traffic jam ahead is, but people in trucks usually do.


Do you haul stuff around, like wood, sheetrock, tile, bricks, tools, or boxes of stuff? A truck’s bed is great for hauling all sorts of stuff around town, from chests of drawers to fishing poles. You can cover your truck bed to keep the rain out, or leave it open which allows for transporting tall items that otherwise wouldn’t fit in a car.


Want to go off-road, muddin’ and such? Trucks are bigger, stronger and made for tougher road conditions than, say, a Prius. Whether you’re in the mountains, on dirt roads, or in a typical town, trucks are versatile with where they can go.


Boaters love trucks. Why? Because trucks are strong enough to properly trailer boats. Want to take your fishing boat to the river or lake? Trucks are good for that. Speaking of trailers, trucks are also the vehicle of choice for taking campers to and from campsites.


Today’s trucks have better amenities than ones from the old days. With air conditioning, kickin’ audio systems, and more comfortable seats, today’s trucks are enjoyable to drive.


George Kell Motors has a good selection of new and pre-owned Chevy Silverados and GMC Sierras—great trucks for life in Arkansas and the surrounding states. Consider buying a truck for your vehicle needs.
