Honda Ridgeline Work Truck Debut

The midsize pickup truck is gaining ground with new models such as the Chevy Colorado, Toyota Tacoma, and the Honda Ridgeline, which will debut by 2016, according to Hardworkingtrucks.com. Production of the current Honda Ridgeline, built in Alabama, will conclude during 2014. The new Ridgeline will likewise be built in the U.S. with a more traditional pickup truck appearance.

The upward trend in midsize models is likely due to fuel cost fluctuations and environmental concern. The first generation Honda Ridgeline was named the 2006 North American Truck of the Year because of its unique design and half-ton truck capability.With the resurgence of midsize pickup trucks, the market for compatible truck bodies will also likely increase. 

Fleetwest Transferable Truck Bodies offers Durashell service bodies which are durable, yet light enough for the midsize model pickups. The Durashell 90, and Durashell 165 (pictured below) are lightweight, fiberglass composite service bodies that create the perfect work truck when combined with a midsize pickup.They offer 90 and 165 cubic feet of storage with little extra weight added to the truck, creating a more fuel efficient and economical work truck.

Service Body Color Match

Whether a work truck stands alone or is part of a bigger fleet, one way to get noticed is by color-matching. Color-matched service bodies create a sleek and modern overall look, which can bring positive attention to a business. Color-matching also creates a great canvas for company logos or slogans. The only problem with color-matching a service body to your pickup truck is that it can be expensive.

The Durashell 170 by Fleetwest Transferable Truck Bodies (pictured below) can be color-matched to your new or existing pickup truck for just $200! The Durashell 170 fits all major makes and models of pickup trucks such as Ford, GMC, Chevy, and Dodge. If you are not interested in color-matching, Fleetwest is also offering 10% off a limited number of  white Durashell 170 fiberglass composite service bodies with slight discoloration. These offers are only available while supplies last. Call your Fleetwest representative toll free at 866-497-7200 to get a quote.

Currently, you can deduct up to $500,000 on equipment such as a new Chevy Silverado with a Load'N'Go by Fleetwest Transferable Truck Bodies. A special first-year depreciation bonus may be available to further savings.

In 2014 the Section 179 deduction is going to be significantly reduced to $25,000 so business should take advantage of it before the year end (unless congress passes new legislation).

FedEx Work Trucks

FedEx contractors sing praises of the Durashell 370 by Fleetwest Transferable Truck Bodies on a Chevy Silverado pickup truck as a van alternative. A pickup truck provides 4x4 capability not available with the old work vans. The Durashell also has 130 cubic feet greater capacity than the AWD Chevy Express vans. Drivers enjoy easy access to cargo thanks to the stand-up height of the Durashell 370.

Durashell Vs. Van
  • The Durashell factory availability is 3 weeks or less while a new full-size transit van could take 4-10 months
  • Ownership costs for the Durashell are much less than a van because of lower maintenance costs and a 3+ pickup truck lifecycle
  • The residual value for pickup trucks are higher than a van. The Durashell service body provides the added benefit of transferability with no-holes drilled installation, making the resale value of both the pickup and service body higher
