In Kansas City, the type of vehicle you choose to drive can exemplify your prairie roots. Whether it’s a passenger car, a compact commuter, an all-wheel-drive SUV, or a pickup truck, some things just show how American you really are. A truck is perhaps the best vehicle you can choose for life in Missouri. If you have a cottage by the lake, you can use your pickup to haul your necessities in the spring when you open up and in fall when you shut down for the season. If you hunt, a pickup truck is a great choice to bring big game to your camp or to the butcher for processing. Whether it’s fishing or waterskiing, towing a boat is best done with a truck. Check out these 5 pickup trucks that are perfect for life in Missouri.
1. Ford F-150
The newest version of the Ford F-150 has a military-grade aluminum body. It’s an excellent lightweight material that keeps fuel costs to a minimum while staying strong and durable. Speaking of durable, the aluminum-bodied F-150 resists corrosion better than ever, perfect for the salty, sandy roads you might be traveling in the wintertime.
2. Ram 3500
With so much space in Missouri to use for farming or ranching, it makes sense to own a truck that can pull anything you want. The Ram 3500 has a maximum towing capacity of 31,210 pounds. Hauling a heifer to 4H club, towing harrows to the field, or bringing a load of bricks to the jobsite is no problem for the Ram 3500.
3. Chevy Silverado
It’s hard to beat the looks and the ride of the Chevy Silverado. Its refined exterior is mirrored inside, and there’s room for the whole family in either the Double Cab or Crew Cab. The Chevy Silverado is a fantastic choice if you need a fullsize truck for hauling the family, hauling a heavy payload, or a combination of both!
4. Nissan Titan
Let’s face it – Kansas City’s roads leave something to be desired. The Nissan Titan is tough enough to handle any terrain, even the rugged roads across Missouri. From the Mark Twain National Forest in southern Missouri to the backroads in Tonganoxie, the Nissan Titan can tackle the harshest of terrains. And yes, it’s even tough enough for mud roads, boat launches, and a romp in the sand.
5. Toyota Tundra
Dress in your Sunday best and go for a business lunch in the Toyota Tundra 1794 Edition. Beat the dirt roads to submission with a TRD Pro model. Or make your workload as easy as pie with the Tundra regular cab. A Toyota Tundra can be as rough and tumble or as refined as you’d like, which is perfect for Missouri’s city and rural life combo.
