GRAND JUNCTION, Colo., April 26, 2013 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- Few vehicles represent America better than the pickup truck. A pickup truck, a hardhat and a lunch pail are three symbols of the American worker. However, like many things in our country the pickup truck has evolved and continued to reflect its owners. While still very much a symbol of the blue collar worker, the days of bone-rattling rides and being crammed three across in an uncomfortable seat are gone. The modern pickup truck has modern suspension systems and with the advent of extended cabs bringing a few extra people along to help get the job done no longer requires a crowbar to get in and out of the truck. Western Slope Auto in Grand Junction, CO offers two very good examples of modern pickup trucks for their customers to choose from.
If the American consumer likes anything, they like choices. Pickup trucks now come in just about every size and configuration imaginable. For instance take a look at the 2013 Toyota Tacoma in Grand Junction, CO, now available at Western Slope Auto; it is a prime example of a mid-size pickup that still offers plenty of capability without having too large of a footprint on the road. The 2013 Tacoma is almost tailor-made for the weekend warrior that in a span of a Saturday and Sunday that may build a deck for a friend and then tie down a couple of dirt bikes and go rides some trails. The new Tacoma's efficient four-cylinder engine will get up to 25 miles per gallon.
For those that are looking for a bit more on the power side of things Western Slope Auto has the 2013 Ford F-150 near Grand Junction, CO available to be put to work. The Ford F-150 has been the bestselling vehicle in the United States for over 30 years thanks to an attention to quality and customer needs. The Ford F-150 has continually improved over the years and the 2013 model is yet another new apex. The base trim's powerful V-6 engine will get up to 23 miles per gallon while being able to produce 302-horsepower. Even the 5.0-liter, V-8 engine that makes 360-horsepower still gets up to 21 miles per gallon which is at or near the best of the pickup truck segment. When properly equipped, the 2013 F-150 will tow up to 3,120 pounds, an industry best.
