    6 Reasons Why Winning a Truck Would Change Your Life

    Winning anything is exciting. It's even more exciting when your prize is a brand new truck. You might think you're perfectly happy with your current car or even old truck, but think of all the possibilities a new, powerful truck can offer! Let us explain why a new truck would change your life for the better.

    1. Can You Say Power?
    A well-made, new truck can have upwards of 350 horsepower, some are even capable of 440 horsepower. Horsepower is a measurement of the maximum power and torque an engine is capable of producing before its breaking point, measured on a dynamometer. The term comes from back when automobiles were new and sellers needed a relatable way to describe the machines. One unit of horsepower equals 550 foot-pounds per second or the ability to move 550 pounds a foot in a second.

    2. You Can Tow and Haul Everything!
    Moving lumber at a construction site? Taking a camping trip? Helping a friend tow a stalled car? A truck can do it all and more. You'll never again have to pack conservatively for a road trip and probably can move an entire one-bedroom home in one trip with the strength and cargo space of a truck.

    3. Space, Space and More Space
    Speaking of cargo space, don't forget about passenger space. Most new trucks offer plenty of legroom, arm room and head room, making the truck's cabin almost like a second living room. Throw in features like multiple cup holders, back seat climate control buttons and powerful sound systems and you're set for a ride that may be more exciting than the destination.

    4. What Blind Spot?
    Trucks place the driver at a higher level than the rest of traffic, meaning a truck driver can see the short stopping cars way down the road. Combine that view with bigger windows than most cars have and you have 360 degrees of visibility, allowing you to drive more confidently and safely.

    5. More Adventure
    Those big tires are meant for dirt. A truck allows for more wilderness adventures like off-roading through muddy roads or climbing up steep, rocky hills. You'll see and experience more of what nature has to offer, without worrying about getting stuck in the mud. Heck, with a truck's towing capability you'll probably be called on to help a compact car that couldn't handle a few mud puddles.

    6. Variety
    Just like drivers, not all trucks are created equal. You can fully customize your truck starting with the bed length, mid-sized versus full-sized and even spring for the fancy walnut dashboard. Many truck manufacturers know their clients want different things in their trucks and offer options suitable on the range of down and dirty work horse, to weekend DIY queen, all the way to sleek urban cowboy. You'll find exactly what you need in a truck.
