Three of the Best Used Trucks to Buy

March 15th, 2018 by

When you go shopping for a truck, you want to pick the most durable and reliable option that still comes in at the price you’re looking for. Our used car dealer in Reno has a wide selection of used trucks for sale to choose from so you can have both of those qualities. We’re here to break down three options for you that we think will deliver optimal performance for you for years to come.

Looking to secure a used car loan? Our Reno used car finance center will work with you to get a loan that fits your budget.

Ford F-150

We start with America’s favorite, the Ford F-150. There’s a reason the F-150 has been the top selling truck for years, and it’s because Ford delivers year in and year out on its flagship model. The F-150 ranges from a standard 202 horsepower V6 to a 411 horsepower 6.2-liter V8, paired with a four or six speed automatic transmission. Enjoy a towing capacity of up to 9,500 pounds with the F-150, more than enough to tow whatever you need for the weekend.

Also an option on trims like the Harley Davidson special edition is leather seats and a leather wrapped steering wheel so you can get comfortable while your truck does the work.

Chevrolet Avalanche

The Avalanche has the ultimate passenger-focused cabin, with features on the 2013 model such as smart phone compatibility, multi-zone climate control, satellite radio, and a premium sound system. The rear cab wall can be removed and rear seats folded down to expand the length of the cargo bed, so you can be a chauffeur when you want to and go to work when you need to.

Under the hood is a massive 5.3-liter V8 that is capable of running on unleaded or up to 85% ethanol, mated to a six speed automatic transmission and with an output of 320 horsepower at 5,400 rpm. This leads to a solid towing capacity of 5,100 pounds.

Toyota Tundra

Last, but certainly not least, is the Toyota Tundra. Often overlooked on the truck market, Toyota comes in with the highest towing capacity yet at up to 10,400 pounds. It may not look as sexy when it’s new compared to names like Ford and Chevy, but as far as used trucks go, the Tundra is one of the most reliable models out there. Look no further than J.D. Power’s 2011 Dependability study, which found that the Tundra is the pickup with the highest long-term quality.

You’ll find modern features on a used Tundra, such as keyless entry, Brake Assist and Stability Control. Properly taken care of, the Tundra could last you many more miles and take you through countless jobs.
