At Koons Clarksville Chevrolet Buick GMC, we understand and respect your wants and needs when buying a new or used truck. Trucks serve many purposes and have a lot of diversity, so drivers should spend time researching what's available. If you want a used truck or are considering one check out our tips and info below.

What Are the Different Types of Trucks?

Resist the temptation to buy the first truck that catches your eye, especially if it's due to the size. Not everybody needs as large of a truck as they think. So then, what kinds of sizes do pickup trucks generally come in, and what do they really mean?

Midsize trucks include vehicles like the Chevy Colorado or GMC Canyon. While midsize trucks have smaller cabins and cargo beds and can't pull as much as full-size pickups, their smaller dimensions make them more agile in tight locations. They're also more likely to have higher fuel-economy numbers and will generally be a bit simpler to enter and exit.

Full-size trucks like the Chevy Silverado are generally larger and more diversified than midsize trucks. These are available in both light-duty and heavy-duty configurations, if not super-duty (Silverado 2500 or 3500). Choosing between midsize or full-size all depends on how much convenience versus capability you need.

The heavier the classification, the stronger the engines available. Although a bigger truck model has more weight to lug around, it's not necessarily slower on the highway. Performance largely depends on the truck's engine. If you want a truly sporty experience, there are often high-performance engine choices available. Light-duty, full-size trucks like the Silverado 1500 are especially popular for their balance of adaptability and rugged capability, while also having plenty of different options for upgrades.

Why Buy a Used Truck?

Buying a used truck is a great way to save money if you identify the correct model for you and work with a trustworthy dealership. Here are the three of the best reasons to buy used:

  • Lower depreciation: Newness is highly valuable in the automobile market. A brand-new car can lose up to 30% of its value after being owned for a year. Meanwhile, a vehicle that is around one to three years old has a much more stable, slowly depreciating value.
  • Save on auto insurance: The value of a vehicle is a crucial element in determining the cost of auto insurance. Because a used automobile is generally priced lower than a new one, it's one of the simplest ways to lower your car insurance costs.
  • Make the most of your budget: Naturally, you can afford a higher standard of automobile if you buy something pre-owned. The depreciated value means you are paying mainly for what's inside the truck, not for the newness factor. You might not be able to afford that new luxury truck you've always wanted with your current budget. However, you can buy a truck with comparable features and specs just a year or so behind the most recent models.

Thanks to vehicle history reports and the internet's effect on auto sales, it's easier than ever to research a legitimate deal from a dealership you can trust. If you want to save money or extend the power of a dollar, buying used will certainly help.

Tips for Buying a Used Truck 

Generally, deciding to buy used expands your options from just the latest model year of a truck to the last few model years. This means it pays off to study up on what model years and trim levels have the features that you consider essential, or maybe you want to spoil yourself with the most luxurious, well-equipped model possible on your budget. No matter your case, jot down these crucial pointers while hunting for the perfect used truck. 

  • Use the internet: Many dealerships today have multiple locations and can ship vehicles between them on request during the sales process, sometimes even through the dealership's website. Dealerships with this much access improve your chances of getting the ideal pre-owned heavy-duty truck, midsize pickup, or anything else you need. Furthermore, the internet makes it incredibly easy to compare prices between different dealers, models, and more.
  • Consider your financing options: As you get closer to settling on your next used truck, it's vital to look into your financing options. Various lenders have different requirements and different areas of wiggle room, depending on the financing program and vehicle.
  • Inquire about extended warranties: Ask about the warranty given by the specific dealership. If available, extended warranty coverage can help alleviate some of the financial burdens that come with purchasing a secondhand truck.
  • Take it for a test drive: Always take a truck for a test drive before you buy it. For consumer-to-consumer purchases, we recommend meeting in person if possible. You should also consult a mechanic, who can tell you whether the automobile has any significant flaws.

Should I Buy a Truck From a Stranger?

A note for buying from individual sellers: use caution when buying a used vehicle from an unknown person advertising online, or even a friend of a friend. Make sure you take into account the seller's potential motivations to sell the vehicle to you rather than taking advantage of a dealer's trade offers. Was there an issue with the vehicle that caused them not to want it?
