There are many things to consider when shopping for a new-to-you used truck. How many people can it transport, double cab or single cab? Is the engine powerful enough to handle a tow package? Short bed truck or long bed truck, leather or cloth interior? Which size is going to meet your immediate and future needs, a small, midsize or full-size truck? Great questions worth asking yourself or one of our friendly sales associates prior to signing on the dotted line.
There’s one thing that separates a gas from a diesel engine, the longevity of the engine. A typical used gas truck can last up to 200k miles whereas a used diesel truck can last up to 800k miles, almost 4 times as long!!!! And if you think that’s a game changer, now car manufacturers are coming out with electric pickup trucks. It’ll be interesting to see how much they can tow and for how long in comparison. And as far as price is concerned, diesel costs a good amount more than gas for good reason.
Passenger capacity is an important factor to consider when shopping for a used SUV. Small SUVs seat 4, midsize SUVs seat 5 and three-row SUVs typically seat up to 7 comfortably. And if you live in an area that experiences inclement weather often, you may want to consider investing in a 4-wheel drive SUV. 4x4 SUVs are great in the snow, ice, rain, mud and over rocky, off the beaten terrain. Great for adventures solo or with the fam, many used full-size SUVs can tow up to 5k pounds, enough to tow a good size travel or cargo trailer.
