Shopping for a pickup truck is not the same as shopping for any other vehicle. If you're a first-time pickup buyer, you are probably overwhelmed with the differences. With many special uses and an ever growing array of styles and options, it's easy to get led in many directions and become frustrated. Here at Advantage Ford LINCOLN, we're ready to help you through that. Here are some things you should do before you start shopping for your pickup truck.


If you're a first-time truck buyer, prepare for some sticker shock. Keep in mind that trucks are capable utility vehicles that also offer all the comforts of top cars. This comes at a price. With the higher cost, it's a good idea to have a firm grasp on your budget before you start shopping. Stick to your budget and don't get blown away by bells and whistles. Check out our financial tools or apply for credit before visiting our lot to know exactly what you can afford.


Trucks are built to last so it's a good bet that you will have the truck you buy for many years. Look ahead to the future. Will you need more cabin space for a family? Do you plan to grow your business and need plenty of cargo room? Any plans to buy a jet ski that you'll need to tow? All of these things factor into how much you'll enjoy your new pickup truck.


Research trucks online. The information available is endless. Even more than that, research pickup truck dealers and be sure you choose one you trust.
