About Pick-up Trucks

Pick-up trucks or pick-ups are light and mid-duty vehicles with an open rear bay and an enclosed driver’s cabin to the front. Used mainly for utilitarian purposes by traders in the early 1900’s, pick-up trucks were bare and simple in design and came with modest amenities. It was in the 1950’s that consumers started purchasing pick-up trucks for lifestyle needs, where automobile manufacturers began to design pick-ups to be more consumer oriented with air conditioning, glass-windows and 3-speed transmission.

Pick-ups today, are designed with both, the power to perform as well as modern comforts to keep up with the needs of serving as a primary vehicle for many car buyers. Instead of the conventional single-cabin, pick-ups now feature double-cabins with more seating space and plush interiors depending on the make and trim of the vehicle you are purchasing. More seating does mean less space for your goods in the rear bay, not a big sacrifice if you are buying your pick-up for personal use. You also get to choose between light, mid-sized, full-sized and heavy-duty pick-ups choosing in accordance with the power you desire from your pick-up. Full-sized and heavy-duty pick-ups also offer 4 X 4 drive for better performance.
