Benefits of Medium-Duty Diesel Trucks
While there are many different medium-duty diesel trucks available the best choice will depend on the specific needs of your business. Generally, all Class 4-6 diesel trucks offer the following benefits.
/ 01 Greater Towing Capacity
In addition to their increased payload capacity, medium-duty trucks also offer greater towing capacity. This makes them a good choice for businesses that need to transport heavy equipment or trailers. For example, a Class 6 truck like a Ford F-650 or a Freightliner M2 could be used to haul a trailer with a backhoe or other heavy machinery.
/ 02 More Durable
Medium-duty trucks are also generally more durable than their light-duty counterparts. These vehicles are built to handle the rigors of heavier loads and more demanding work environments. As a result, they tend to have longer lifespans and require less maintenance over time.
/ 03 Wide Range of Options
There are many different brands and models of medium-duty trucks available, which means you have a wide range of options to choose from. Some popular choices include the International DuraStar, the GMC Sierra, and the Ram 5500. No matter what your specific needs are, you should be able to find a medium-duty truck that meets them.
