What Does a 1 Ton Truck Mean?

In the United States, trucks have always been classified by payload capacity, dividing into ½-ton, ¾-ton, and 1-ton. Read about other classifications here.

One-ton trucks are the largest and most powerful pickup trucks available. The tradition has been preserved, although the real carrying capacity of the trucks can be much greater. For example, the Ford F-350 can handle a payload of up to 7,640 pounds. Read also about ¾-ton trucks you can buy in Indianapolis .

2015 Chevrolet Silverado 3500HD Built After Aug 14 High Country
  • Ford Super Duty F-350. The main difference of Ford F-350 from the previous models is that its body is completely made of aluminum alloy. The pickup has a full-size cabin with five seats. The interior is finished with premium materials, equipped with modern safety features and driving assistance technologies. The comfort in the cabin is supported by climate control, standard audio preparation includes a high-end stereo system with 16 speakers.
  • Chevy Silverado 3500HD. The Silverado one ton pickup has a minimal level of unification with the younger generation model, the Chevrolet Silverado 1500. From body panels and cargo platforms to heavy-duty frames and components, such as drive shafts and cooling systems, the Silverado 3500HD vehicles are original and purpose-built to provide the highest performance of the car.
  • GMC Sierra 3500HD. The Sierra 3500HD features a muscular design and an aerodynamic 57-degree windshield, and the advanced OnStar communications system is standard on most models. The truck doesn’t rumble or rattle like the competitive models. The lavishly equipped cabin of the highest Denali trim blurs the lines between a hard-working truck and a luxury car. It is plush and has soft, super-comfortable leather seats that GMC says will stand up to years of use and constant contact with rough denim.
  • Ram 3500. The distinctive feature of a Dodge Ram one ton truck of any year is a powerful, durable, indestructible spar frame. It never rusts under any circumstances. The engine always has a reserve in terms of power and torque, regardless of the equipment installed. The cabin offers maximum space and comfort with a kind of chic. In addition, all-wheel drive and rear-wheel drive truck chassis with different types of cabs of the 4500 and 5500 series are built on their basis. These trucks have three types of cabs and three dimensions of the wheelbase.

What Is Dually on a Truck?

Duallies are distinguished by increased carrying capacity and mass of towed cargo. Read more about dually trucks for sale in Indianapolis .

What to Consider Before Buying a 1-Ton Truck

1 ton truck what to consider

Now you are about to buy a used truck in Indianapolis, but before you do so, there are a few things you should consider:

  1. Purpose . What will you use your truck for? If you are going to tow a trailer or large boat, a one ton truck will be a good choice. However, if the payload will be fairly minimal, a small pickup might be a better solution.
  1. Gas Mileage. Trucks are notorious for their terrible gas mileage, many trucks will go under 20 mpg both on the highway and in the city, especially the biggest ones. If fuel economy matters, you should better consider something like the 2016 GMC Canyon that can hit 22/31mpg city/highway.
  1. 2WD Vs. 4WD . A 4×4 truck will cost more, but if you often drive in bad weather or off-road conditions, you might consider buying it. But be aware that choosing a 4WD will have a negative impact on gas mileage.
  1. Transmission . Pickup trucks with manual transmission usually cost less, but if you spend much time in traffic jams, the automatic one will be more comfortable.
  1. Features Included . Before buying a truck, make sure it has all the necessary features included. For example, if you drive a lot in the winter, you may need heated seats.
