Thursday, May 31st, 2018
Are you in the market for a truck but are not sure whether to purchase a Ford or a Chevy? No problem, we can help! At Dallas Lease Returns we have both Chevorlet and Ford trucks in our inventory, and believe that they are both great truck companies. However, there are still some differences between the two. Continue reading to find out what they are!

Chevrolet Trucks

Chevy is known for their amazing pickup trucks, but what sets them apart from other companies?

Easy, it’s their history!

Chevy has been around for 1o0 years! The company first started out building Supply Chain and Farming trucks for different companies. Eventually, they made the Light Delivery Chassis, a truck-like-vehicle that made it much easier for people to transport items without a horse or a buggy.

Chevy made history with this design and it helped society progress immensely. Today, Chevy specializes in making vehicles that are lighter and smaller. As we all know, gas prices have gone up overtime and Chevy tries to make their trucks cost efficient while still being reliable.

Ford Trucks

Ford is also a company that has been around for quite awhile. They are known for being the vehicle choice for the working man or women. This company specializes in making trucks that are both aesthetically pleasing, while also still being tough and durable. Around most of America, Ford trucks are known for their outstanding performance and value.

In fact, in 2009 the Ford F-150 won the prestigious Motor Trend Truck of the year award. In 2017, the Ford Super Duty won the Motor Trend Truck of the Year. Ford is known for being a tough car and it shows through their awards and outstanding achievements.

As you can see, both of these companies are amazing in different ways. For more information, please visit our website or call (214) 960-1388!

Top 5 Reasons to Buy a Used Truck

Tuesday, March 13th, 2018
Trucks are some of the bestselling vehicles in the country! They are not only loved, but are also trusted by millions of drivers.Here at Dallas Lease Returns, we believe that owning a truck is something everyone should enjoy at least once in their life! To put it simply, truck ownership offers a completely different driving experience than anything a small compact or even smaller sub compact car can deliver.

Still on the fence? No problem! We came up with Five Reasons to Buy a Used Truck today! Continue reading to learn more!

The Power of Towing

Towing capacity (A.K.A torque) goes hand in hand with horsepower. Most trucks made in recent years have the ability to tow objects of 12,000 + pounds!

This amount of power has endless opportunities for you and your family. You will easily be able to take long trips and hook a camper or anything else to the back of your truck. Think of all the memories to be made!

Extra Space

Things just seem to be getting smaller and smaller. With compact cars being transformed into sub-compact vehicles, leg room and cargo space are often limited.

This is not the case when it comes to trucks.

The great thing about pickup trucks is how each body style can accommodate different needs in terms of room and number of passengers. To have the most room, it is recommended by Autotrader to go for a crew cab as you’ll have four full doors. At Dallas Lease Returns, we have great quality used crew cab trucks in our inventory right now!

Why suffer? You deserve to have a comfortable and spacious daily commute.

Better Visibility

You will literally experience a whole new world with a truck! The height of the cabin is indicative of the enhanced view. You’ll be able to see so much more on the highway than if you were in a little coupe or sedan.

Enhanced Safety

Enhanced safety is a huge benefit of trucks!

About.com offers a short list of the Top Pickup Truck Safety Features:

  1. Side Impact Protection
  2. Vehicle Stability Control
  3. Trailer Sway Control
  4. Cab Safety Cage Design
  5. Improved Seatbelt Systems

Long Lasting Value

If you’re looking to keep your next vehicle for a long time, you obviously want to choose one that holds its value. Because trucks are bigger and made out of more expensive equipment, they retain their value much longer than a regular car. Plus, if you purchase a used truck instead of a new one- you save money! It’s a win-win situation in the short and long run!

At Dallas Lease Returns, we just want to help you find a great quality vehicle you and your family will love and enjoy! If you decide to go the truck route, we have over 50 great quality used trucks in our inventory right now! But if not, that’s okay too! We offer all makes and models- so we’re sure we have the perfect fit for you! Come experience the difference with Dallas Lease Returns, we promise you will not be disappointed!
