Which Truck Fits Your Personality?

Which Truck

December 13 2019 - Are you in the market for a new truck? Is it something you're passionate about but you're still not quite sure which truck is for you?

The truth is that all trucks have their positives and negatives but there is a perfect truck for everyone. You just need to make sure you get one that matches your personality.

So, which truck was built just for you? Forget going to a fortune teller. Take this test and find out which one is right for you and hit the roads with your true soul-car.

A Truck for Everybody

There is a certain bond amongst truck owners. Although we often have our disagreements about which truck is the best one, we can usually agree that we would never be seen in a Prius (or would we).

Whether you're into Ford, Dodge, or Asian vehicles, there is one out there for every personality type.

Which Truck Is Right for You?

Considering the best-used trucks to buy? Are you into getting a heavy-duty job done and then going hunting? Or are you more into doing extreme and radical stunts and going clubbing?

Maybe you're more laid back and would rather drive something that doesn't pollute the environment at an alarming rate.

Believe it or not, there is a perfect truck for each of these people but perhaps you aren't too sure where you stand. Worry not! Just take this test and see what kind of truck you need to have.

John Wayne

Are you tough as nails and don't have any time to play any games? Well, then you need a serious work truck that gets the job done.

You don't need any extra frills or glamor points. You came to chew some gum and do some work. And it looks like we're almost out of gum and it's time to find the best used small truck.

You don't need to waste a whole lot of money on a brand new truck with endless features. However, you know enough not to waste your money on some junk that is just going crap out on you.

Your Truck Is...

You're going with the 2016 Chevrolet Silverado Heavy Duty. This is one of, if not the most, dependable work trucks of the year. It's got everything you need.

You do get one extra. Of course, you'll need the Apple CarPlay to listen to all your Marty Robbins classics.

Efficient and Subtle

Not everything is all about seeing how much pollution and noise you can make. You shake your head at all the idiots who get massive F-150s and don't really need it.

Also, you have a strong urge to point and laugh when you see people paying out the wazoo for gasoline at the pumps. You know to avoid the news because the value drops immediately when you leave the lot.

You're looking for the best small used truck that will be reliable, good in the snow, but won't be waste of gas.

The Truck for You Is...

The 2006 Subaru Baja is going to get you from point A to point B reliably and without contributing to the climate change disaster. This is the best small truck for people into efficiency.

You're not worried that it's smaller than most trucks because you have nothing to make up for if you catch my drift.

Totally Rad, Dude!

Sometimes you have an undeniable urge to just shred it. You get bored by the tediousness of daily life and you just need to get out there and tear up some dirt roads.

In other words, you have a bit of an adrenaline addiction. You need a truck that is fast and has good handling. You're looking for something to give your mother a heart attack.

Your Truck Is...

Your truck is the Toyota Tundra TRD. You're going to look badass and have all types of fun. Its got the control and the off-road capabilities for everything you throw at it.

Just don't forget to get a snorkeler and you'll be good to go. Just don't forget about these truck driver safety tips before you do anything crazy.

The Bond Villian

Either you're a conniving villain with a diabolical plan or you've just seen too many mobster movies. Regardless, you're all about having a pristine, intimidating style.

You're not here to do any serious lifting because you're the boss now. In fact, you're probably going to sitting in the back seat while your henchmen chauffeur you around.

You've got places to be and people to see. You need a badass ride that sends a statement.

Your Truck Is...

You're going to be flexing in one of the Mercedes-Benz G-Class trucks. Affectionately called the G-wagon, this truck means business. You'll be sure to turn heads and will send the right meeting to your business partners and contacts.

Squad Leader

A time comes for most of us when we realize it's not all about us. Maybe we used to love to tear up to side roads or flex in a Mercedes truck but now we're more of a team player.

Maybe we've got a family of eight to ship around or maybe you drive people around for work.

Either way, you need to get people transported. Forget a pickup truck, we need to get people to and from soccer practice.

Your Truck Is...

The Ford Expedition is the best vehicle for soccer parents and all-around team players. Simply put, this beast is pretty massive.

It has all the interior cabin room you need. It seats eight NFL linebackers comfortably. OK, maybe that is an exaggeration but you should have no problem fitting the whole crew.

If you got people depending on you, you need a real truck to get your people around safely.

The Perfect Truck for You

Having a truck is a way of life. Hopefully, you'll cherish it dearly and take care of it. Be good to your truck and it'll be good to you.

Hopefully, this test will help you figure out which truck is right for you. Get out there and take a test run and see what feels best.
