Pickups come in different lengths and wheelbases (distance between front and rear tires) depending on the type. The length of North American-manufactured compact pickups normally ranges between 189 and 192 inches, with wheelbases under 115 inches. Mid- and full-size pickups span above 200 inches and have wheelbases under 126 to 140 inches. The variations in the lengths influence the carrying and towing capacity of pickups.
Some pickup models are based on existing station wagon platform designed with an internal frame or truss that hold the external components together. A better architecture suggests a spot welded sheet steel monocoque or unibody chassis in which considerable portions of the external components are directly connected to the chassis. Modern passenger cars adopt this architecture for improved performance and stress resistance.
To prevent warping of sheet metal connecting the front cab and the rear cargo as well as to allow for chassis flex, most pickups have separate sections for the cab and cargo through a tubular or channel rail chassis. The impact absorbed by each section does not fully affect the other, especially on uneven terrains. This makes driving less vibrating when the rear cargo is loaded with heavy materials.
Pickup trucks, such as Ram 2500 and Ram 3500, retailed in industrialized cities like Edmonton in Canada, are known for their towing and carrying capabilities. They are designed with horse power, suspension ability, axle ration, and engine configuration that surpass those of other automobile types. For instance, an Edmonton Dodge Ram 2500 can tow up to 10,000 lbs of load at a heavy-duty scale. Additional features, such as standard electronic brake control can be found in this new pickup model.
A larger and more powerful model, Edmonton Ram 3500 , has over 5,100 lbs payload capacity and 18,500 lbs towing capacity. While it is ideal for light- to heavy-duty industrial work, the fine exterior provides it a fair look for city road travels. Unlike large trucks that may look socially unacceptable in commercial areas, pickup trucks are fashionable.
