4 Features to Look for in Your Next New Truck


If you are on the market for a brand new truck, you need to know about the latest, cutting edge features being offered in today's truck. Knowing this information will help you determine if you are being offered the best and the latest, or if you are being offered a slimmed down model. Additionally, understanding these features will help you determine which ones you really want in your next new truck. 

#1 Custom Displays

One of the latest features in trucks are custom displays. You still have your standard RPM, gas, temperature, and miles per hour gauge. However, in the middle is a digital dashboard feature that you customize to show the information you really want prominent when you are driving. You can customize the digital dash component in order to fit your driving style and unique needs.

The custom digital dash can provide you with information such as what direction you are driving in, the outside temperature, your fuel consumption, how many miles you are getting per gallon, and what gear you are in. It can also show you if your audio system is on or off, what station or album you are listening to, and if you have a call coming in on your phone. You can even get detailed information about your vehicle such as oil temperature, oil life, and transmission temperature.

The best part is that you can determine what you want on your display and where you want each piece of information displayed. For example, you can put the temperature in the upper right hand corner and the direction on the lower right hand corner.

#2 Dial Shifter

Another new feature on trucks is a dial-based shifter. This shifter is designed to allow you to just turn the nob, much like you would do with the radio, in order to switch from park to reverse to neutral to drive. This advanced feature is designed to allow you to easily see what gear you are putting your truck into without having to ever take your eyes off the road.

#3 Backup Camera

A large truck can be difficult to maneuver, which is why many new trucks are equipped with a backup camera. The backup camera will allow you to see behind your truck and will allow you to see all of the typical blind spots. In addition, the backup camera will provide you with arrows and information that will assist you with how to back up effectively no matter what situation you find yourself in.

#4 Oversized Mirrors

Finally, many trucks are now equipped with oversized or extended mirrors. These mirrors will extend your line of sight. This is really important if you ever tow things behind your truck, as they are designed to increase your line of sight.

These types of mirrors are also equipped with lights on them that signify if you are turning left or right. These lights make it easier for other drivers to see what you are doing and makes your driving environment safer.

An Important Purchase

After driving an older car to work for several years, my husband was finally ready to buy another vehicle. He got tired of his car breaking down at his workplace, the grocery store, and the mall. Because gas mileage is important to him, my spouse shopped at local auto dealers for a small, four-door sedan. We were open to purchasing a new vehicle or a slightly used one. Whenever we saw a potential car at a dealership, we always studied its exterior and interior closely. My husband of course also requests to drive it down the road. On this blog, I hope you will discover tools for finding your dream car at an auto dealership. Enjoy!
