New work trucks offer more fuel economy and better features

A new Ford F-150 features a twin turbo Ecoboost engine, Auto Start/Stop, a 10-speed transmission, an aluminum body and up to 13 litres per 100 kms. That translates to significant savings on fuel costs over the life of your vehicle. Compare that to a used F-150 without all the new technology that suffers greatly at the pumps. Leasing new work trucks will reduce your business’s fuel expenses by thousands each year. Fuel savings quickly add up when you have a fleet of 5, 20 or even 50 work trucks. New pickup trucks have technology that improves fuel economy, handling, towing, performance and more.

Newer trucks can be cheaper to run

A new leased work truck from Pfaff Leasing in Calgary can be cheaper to run than a used work truck from your local dealer; even if you ignore fuel expenses. Used work trucks were most likely driven hard. Parts are starting to wear and need to be replaced. Those repairs start to get expensive and add up over time. What’s worse is they come out of your own pocket. With a brand new model work truck, your maintenance costs are usually covered by the warranty.

Leasing a new work truck will have less wear and tear

One of the most common arguments and misconceptions regarding leasing a work truck is “Well the truck is going to get beat up anyway.” It’s true. Work trucks see more abuse and wear than other vehicles. When decision makers think of how beat up their work trucks are they typically think of the 8-12 year old model they purchased 4 years ago with two or more owners and a decade of wear and tear. Leased work trucks see less abuse and hold their value when businesses operate them for a shorter amount of time.
