To compete in today's technologically savvy market, most car and truck companies have included on their websites a way in which consumers can customize their vehicle to their specific liking before making a purchase. In a matter of minutes, alterations to the standard stock options of a truck can be made and viewed in 3D online. Before you make your next vehicle purchase, consider visiting a company's website to customize your options.
Things You'll Need
- Internet access
Determine the brand of truck you want to purchase. Research both American and foreign-made trucks until you know exactly what you're looking for. Compare prices, fuel efficiency, size, engine size, transmission and other specifications. Top-ranked trucks can be found on websites such as the U.S. News Rankings and Reviews and Consumer Reports.
Pick out the make and model of your truck. Locate truck manufacturers like Ford, Chevrolet or Dodge, and search through their truck listings to find the truck that suits you best. Pick out a small truck for better gas mileage. Pick a truck with four-wheel drive for added safety in winter weather. Choose a truck with fold-down backseats for storage purposes. Determine what you need in a truck, and search accordingly.
Click on the "Build" option. Each truck manufacturer will offer a build-your-own option on their website. Browse through all options for the exterior and interior of your truck. Add a moon roof for days when you want to feel the warmth of the sun. Add heated seats for cold winter mornings. Choose embellished rims to spice up the exterior of your truck, or a cargo rack for hauling outdoor equipment like a bike or canoe. Customize the design of the truck you want to purchase.
Summarize and price your customized truck. Use tools on the manufacturer's website to determine monthly payment options, trade-in values, etc. You will be prompted for your zip code at some point throughout the "building" of your truck. Enter your five-digit zip code so that payment options and values will be as accurate as possible.
