Owning a pickup truck is more attractive to buyers than ever before, and auto manufacturers are making it easier to get a dependable truck without sacrificing the comfort and features cars offer.
LOS ANGELES, Calif. (October 10, 2019) – Truck sales have boomed as manufacturers address issues that formerly deterred consumers from considering them for their primary vehicle. Backseats, more cab space and better gas mileage, as well as a lower national average gas price, increase the appeal trucks have for consumers looking to purchase a dependable vehicle.
Another key item consumers need to factor in before signing the paperwork is the cost to insure their new truck, so Mercury Insurance (NYSE: MCY) has put together a list of the most affordable trucks to insure.
Mercury’s research and development team examined 2019 and 2020 trucks available at car dealerships today to compile this list, which was created based on Mercury’s price for full coverage – liability, comprehensive and collision – in California.
“Owning a pickup truck is more attractive to buyers than ever before, and auto manufacturers are making it easier to get a dependable truck without sacrificing the comfort and features cars offer,” said Chong Gao, senior product manager, R&D for Mercury Insurance. “This list will help inform your decision if you’re in the market for a truck, because oftentimes, insurance costs aren’t top-of-mind until you’re almost ready to drive off the lot.”
Here is the top-10 list for 2019-2020 trucks, beginning with the most affordable make and model to insure.
