If you are on the lookout for a new van then we have 3 great recommendations for you on what to buy next. The advice is coming straight from the horses mouth as we asked the brilliant Jeff Lupient automative group manager with over 10 years experience in the auto game here in Minneapolis. Jeff Lupient is something of a super star in this industry and his automotive group here in Minneapolis- St Paul Area Minnesota is held in very high regard. And so for that new truck, why not consider these options, trucks which the wonderful Jeff Lupient recommends himself.
The 2015 model of the country’s highest selling trick yet again shows just how in tune Ford is with their target market. The F150 2015 weighs almost 750 lbs less than its predecessor, but it is packed with a 3.5 L V6 as standard with a 2.7L Ecoboost V6 sitting alongside. The truck is still 6-speed transmission and thanks to the weight reduction this truck is packing all kinds of power! Ford have not only upped their game in terms of what comes as standard for this truck but the modifications which you can add to the F150 are something to behold, especially the crew-cab model which has once again gained the IIHS Top Safety Rating. Solid, safe, powerful and fun to drive, what more do you need!
The US market has never been kind to pick-up trucks, but in the last decade we have seen a huge rise in the increase of their popularity. Leading the charge are models such as the Mitsubishi L200, which is a sleek and powerful vehicle with a multitude of uses. Both inside and out the L200 offers a great amount of style and class, with a huge range of safety features. Don’t be fooled by the attractive look of the L200 however as this beauty packs quite a punch with a 2.4 liter diesel engine, that chugs out 178 bhp and a monster 430Nm of torque. Whether you are heading out with your family, or towing a Luton van to the garage, this vehicle will certainly deliver.
The Fiat Fullback is one of the newest pick-ups on the scene, but it has become an instant hit and sales of the vehicle have exceeding what anyone at Fiat would have expected. Much like the L200 the Fullback offers a 2.4 liter engine, and you can buy either the 148bhp or the 178bhp version. The drive in the Fullback is very smooth and it has a great amount of handy features such as a winch, as well as the option of switching between 2wd and 4wd (both low-ratio and high-ratio). The Fullback is much smaller than its competitors, but it can still carry as much as them all, and with the power to pull a trailer up to 3,000kg, it’s easy to see why the Fullback has found so much success so early.
