Toyota Tundra

Trucks. They are the ultimate vehicle for power, towing and hauling, and some off-road fun - all reasons that may make you think they are only meant for those in the construction field or for time spent mud ridin’ with friends on a summer afternoon. Truth be told, trucks are great for scenarios like these, but they provide so much more than that! Take the 2016 Toyota Tundra for example. Sure it offers the power many consumers look for in a truck, but it also exudes attractive styling and an enjoyable interior loaded with all of the high-tech features that add some entertainment and upscale appeal. Trucks, like the 2016 Toyota Tundra, also offer many perks that other vehicles like sedans don’t. Continue reading to learn more.

From Cargo Space to Family Fun. A key perk to trucks is their cargo bed. It’s the ultimate way to haul building materials or move heavy furniture from an old dwelling to a new one. But, cargo beds also serve a fun purpose too. Load it with bikes or camping gear for a weekend out of town, or even cover it with a blanket and watch a movie outside with family or friends. Clean up is also a cinch - just hose down the cargo bed and you’re ready for your next big adventure.

Better Safety. Compact car or full-size truck. In the events of a crash, which vehicle would you rather be in? Hopefully, you picked the truck. Automotive safety comes down to a number of factors: active and passenger safety systems, driver skill, and more. Overall, trucks provide better safety for all occupants on board.

A truck’s main strength is it durability, which means whatever is thrown at it won’t cause the irreversible damage that it would for a compact car. One reason is because trucks have a much higher ride height. This broader distance between a vehicle and the road equals to many benefits. It provides more driver visibility, which allows drivers to spot potential road hazards quicker and easier. The higher a vehicle rides from the ground also means it has a more successful chance of driving over an debris on the road without suffering vehicle damage or passenger safety.

Another build-in safety feature for trucks is its front grille. You may have thought the grilles sole purpose was to provide a more rugged exterior aesthetic, but in actuality, it is designed as a safety precaution. A truck’s grille protects it from damage by catching any debris that may fly toward it while on the road. It also provides an extra layer of protection between the truck and other vehicles in the events of a crash. This means passengers are well protected and the truck itself endures less damage.
