Although trucks all come in one general shape, they come in a variety of different sizes. These differences reflect their ideal use and their strength, signaling whether they’re able to haul large loads or not. Gibson Truck World carries hundreds of trucks in stock at any given time, which means you’ll have no trouble finding a used Ford trucks in Orlando at the number one used trucks dealership. Here are some tips on how to pick the right one:
Small Trucks: You may be looking strictly for a small, compact truck to get around town and move a few things. In that case, you’re going to want to take a look at some of our older trucks, such as the Ford Ranger. These trucks can pull a trailer with a capacity of about 1,000 to 3,500 lbs. Most modern trucks are actually only being made in the midsize category, which may be bigger than what you are looking for.
Midsize Trucks: The modern midsize truck is pretty powerful, capable of towing up to 7,000, depending on the engine, allowing you to tow your boat, camper, or trailer with ease. They also come with an extended or crew cab, meaning more interior space for passengers.
Full-size Trucks: The Ford F-150 is the most popular model of full-size trucks, which are trucks that have a V6 or a V8 engine and can offer short and long beds. You’ll also have your choice of cab sizes to choose from. As far as the interior, most trucks can be customized and can be quite luxurious.
Heavy Duty Trucks: Heavy duty trucks are like their full-size counterparts but provide increased performance, often due to their diesel engines. They’re able to carry up to 7,000 lbs and tow 20,000, thanks to their stronger transmissions, suspension systems, and locking rear differentials, providing safe maneuvering of any trailer.
Now that you know what the types of used Ford trucks in Orlando look like, you’re going to have to choose the one that most closely fits your needs. Keep in mind that the larger trucks will have lower fuel economies, but will provide greater performance. If you need more help figuring out which truck is right for you, or if you simply want to see them in person, come by Gibson Truck World’s lot on 3455 S. Orlando Dr. in Sanford and have a look for yourself.
