While purchasing a new truck can be rewarding, it is important to remember that the right used model can offer a similar experience for a lower investment, not only upfront but in the long run as well. Furthermore, pre-owned trucks don't depreciate as rapidly as brand new models. New vehicles experience their biggest depreciation hit during the first few years. When you buy used, you skip that depreciation period, and the truck will hold its value for longer. Here are a few other reasons to consider a used truck:

  • Certified Pre-Owned Options: Certified trucks represent the best of the best of the pre-owned markets. They undergo rigorous testing, are never more than a few model years old, and generally include the remainder of the new vehicle warranty. It's as close to new as you can get with a used model.

  • Lower Taxes and Insurance Costs: When you purchase a new truck, your insurance rates will be much lower. A more expensive new truck will command higher monthly payments and increased insurance premiums. Additionally, a lower purchase price means a lower tax payment.

  • Lower Environmental Impact: When you buy used, you are extending the life cycle of the vehicle in question instead of adding to the demand for new models.

  • More Accessible Upper Trim Levels: Higher trim levels have more amenities, and sometimes more powerful engines. They're also more expensive. When you buy a late-model used truck, those extra upgrades could be within range.
