Trucks are basically perceived to be huge utilitarian beasts; owning one is often like owning a house which is difficult to maintain, especially because it is nearly impossible to refuel at regular intervals owing to their bad fuel economy. However, the description presented above might refer to outdated information on the subject, for it’s the twenty first century and manufacturers have managed to perfect the art of creating trucks which not only have a good fuel economy, but are also light weight as well as work efficiently with a good power.

- Lighter materials
The base frame of the truck has been re engineered using high strength steel as the construction material, helping the truck to shed valuable pounds. Moreover, individual systems such as electronic parking-brake system and some other components being made using aluminum such as the steering gear and the tailgates, have helped the truck to become lighter than before. This has led to not only a better fuel economy, but also increase load capacity.
