Owning a pick-up truck today really isn’t the same as it was ten years ago. Pick-up trucks have long endured a reputation for being hardy vehicles that were nearly too uncomfortable to drive. Now, design has been focused on making pick-up trucks pack the same punch, while being an enjoyably comfortable ride.
Great Wall pickups are a great example of how these vehicles have evolved. With ever-increasing utility, durability and fuel efficiency, they have become extremely desirable vehicles to own.
Pick-up trucks were notorious for being incredibly uncomfortable. It’s impossible to accuse them of this now, though; the pick-up truck of today is equipped with far more comfortable interiors, ranging from leather upholstery to being equipped with climate control.
Today’s pick-up trucks come in a range of specification bundles, so you can pick which one suits you the best. The interiors are usually customisable, so you can pick which trimmings you like the best.
It may seem hard to believe, but this is now absolutely true. Pick-up trucks have been fitted out with the highest level of safety technology.
Additionally, their sturdy builds are able to withstand impacts much more than other cars, resulting in less chance of injury during an accident, as well as less overall damage to the vehicle itself.
Pick-up trucks were never really sought after as 4×4 vehicles in the past, with manufacturers emphasising their usefulness for hauling large loads.
Now, manufacturers are keen to emphasise their utility as four-wheel drive vehicles that can negotiate off-road terrain, too.
These vehicles are now available from all price ranges and most of them promise good value for money in terms of the vehicle’s life span. Pick-up trucks are more durable than before and will really give you bang for your buck in terms of how long they’ll serve you.
