Pickup trucks are sought after for their endurance and value, which unfortunately means finding an affordable used model can be quite the challenge. You want to invest in a vehicle that fits your budget, but also has several years of life left in it. Thankfully, Autotrader created a list of used trucks that will do exactly that.
America's best-selling vehicle is an excellent choice for a used truck. With a 2,800-pound cargo-hauling capacity and an 11,000-pound towing capacity, it's hard to find a fault in this pickup. You're also given a myriad of body style options to suit your unique needs. Plus, the modern and comfortable interiors are unsurpassed by other vehicles in this segment.
This modern-looking truck comes in a variety of options, which make it possible to find a model that's just right. Engine choices include a V6 and three V8s. You're also given the choice of several transmissions, body styles, and two or four wheel drive.
While not the most attractive pickup on the market, the Tacoma is practical and durable. The 4-cylinder engine offers an impressive fuel economy of 23 mpg combined, while the brawny V8 cranks out a healthy 240 horsepower.
The Ram comes in a variety of body styles and transmissions, as well as two or four-wheel drive. But what sets it apart is its audacious muscular exterior. The 5.7-liter HEMI V8 option, with a towing capacity of 8,550 pounds, doesn't hurt either.
The V8 engine in this dependable truck yields a feisty 305 horsepower and can pull up to 9,500 pounds. It also offers a respectable fuel economy and peppy acceleration. If you're feeling opulent, opt for the LE trim level with leather upholstery.
