Prices of Trucks

Sunday, April 11th, 2010

There are basically three factors or determinants of truck prices. They are the size of the truck, style and engine strength of a truck as engine is the most important part of any vehicle without which it can not run.

When we talk about size the compact models are logically going to be lower priced than the medium or the large models as there is a difference in space, comfort and application. The compact version would be around $15000 where as a full-size truck will cost approximately $30,000.

Also the range of styles is widening as there is continuous technological development and the customer is looking for something different and out of the box all the time. A reason for this could be that trucks or vehicles that one owns have become a power and status symbol. Especially brands such as chevy pickup and Ford. 2010 Chevrolet Silverado LTZ is a new model with a new style. But, if competitors come up with a truck with the same features and style it is not necessary that the price is going to be the same as well, as prices depend on brand names too.

As mentioned earlier engine configuration of a truck matters a lot when pricing is being done. The better an engine i.e. six cylinder, V8s and V10s, the higher will be the price of the vehicle. This also means that the truck is larger in size and capacity. A Chevrolet Silverado is a 6.0 liter Vortec V8 gasoline engine and is priced at $ 34,870.

Prices of pickup trucks are determined by their size, style and engine configuration. However, vehicles with identical specifications may differ in price from one brand to another. For instance a Ford and chevy pickup, having identical qualifications would have a considerable price difference. The diehard chevy fans will always go for the Chevrolet however, while the Ford fans will not budge from their beloved Ford pickups.
