As a small business owner, it’s often difficult to find the right vehicle for you and your company. However, almost all your company needs can be solved by a quick test drive in one of the available Ford trucks. For a number of years, Ford’s trucks have reigned supreme as top-sellers in the market, with the F Series of full-size light- to heavy-duty trucks outselling competitors year in and year out. In 2019 alone, nearly a million Ford F Series models were sold, making it the most-sold vehicle in the USA.

Why Choose A Truck?

With Ford producing a number of car styles ranging from coupe to crossover vehicles, there could be any number of choices for the modern business. Some of these will suit your needs better than others - a crossover like the Ford Edge is likely to be more useful to you than a Mustang, for example. But while a range of sizes and configurations in the SUV roster is appealing, the truck is perhaps the most versatile product the Blue Oval produces. This is due to a number of reasons including two sizes of truck, as well as numerous body and bed configurations:

This broad range of options means the Ford truck lineup is versatile enough to cater to various business needs, while still able to provide transportation of passengers as well. Both provide impressive capabilities, too, with the choice between 4x2 and 4x4 drivetrains ensuring ample off-road capability, as well as superior towing ability. The Ranger, for example, is capable of towing up to 7,500 lbs, while the F-150 will tow up to 12,100 lbs and the larger Super Duty vehicles will tow even more - up to 37,000 lbs.

Trucks give buyers the raised height to clear obstacles as well as the spacious interiors needed to accommodate people as well as additional storage. They’re cheap to run, in comparison to rival trucks, with the Ford Ranger attaining class-leading mileage estimates of 21/26/23 mpg - matching figures from diesel rivals like the Chevrolet Colorado. The F-Series is impressive in this regard, too, with the high-output EcoBoost V6 providing more horsepower than rival V8s with lower miles per gallon.

What Truck Is Right For You?

With the virtues of a truck making it overwhelmingly clear that these versatile vehicles are the ideal business partner, the next question is which is the right one. Choosing a truck comes down to a few factors:

  • What sort of loads will I be hauling?
  • How many seats do I need?
  • Do I need something luxurious for the weekends or a back-to-basics workhorse?
  • How much am I willing to spend?
  • Do I need something with a bit of performance?

Fortunately, Ford offers something for everyone. Base models are affordable, yet sparsely equipped, making sure you get all the basics you need in a hard-wearing package that will stand the test of time. With numerous cab styles, you can pick whether you need to prioritize seats or a large load bin and, if you’re looking for something with a bit of performance, variants like the F-150 Raptor cater to your adventurous desires. Higher models in the Ranger and F-150 lineups are also luxuriously equipped with features and conveniences like leather upholstery and a number of driver aids, meaning you can pick and choose a trim and configuration hat perfectly fits your needs, rather than applying a one-size-fits-all approach that often comes up short.
