When it’s time to buy a truck, which is the better deal: buying a brand-new truck or finding a good deal on a used truck? The experts at Carl Hogan Automotive have a wide variety of brands both used and new and are here to help you decide which is the better option for you.

A New Truck: First Owner

A new truck’s top selling point is that you are its first and only owner. The interior is spotless, the engine at its peak performance, and the odometer at its lowest.

A Used Truck: Price

Not being a truck’s first owner lowers the cost, and a truck with a few years on it creates is a more affordable option after initial depreciation.

A New Truck: Customization

Today’s trucks come with a plethora of options to maximize towing capabilities, outfit the interior with the best seats and most advanced technologies, and offer a variety of engine and cab options. A new truck can be exactly what you want it to be.

A Used Truck: Value

Today’s trucks are durable and built to last. Engine efficiency and upgraded frames keep trucks going for a long time. Despite its extra miles, a used truck will still provide the strength and durability that you need.

A New Truck: Resale Value

In that same vein, you have the peace of mind that your new truck will hold its value longer. Depreciation in cars is much lower than in trucks, so if you decide to sell after a few years, you’ll be able to recoup a good portion of your investment.

A Used Truck: Tested

Mechanics are well-versed in the nuances of a truck that’s been around for a few years. Solutions to all the common issues have been found, making maintenance much easier.

A New Truck: Warranty

A new purchase comes with a manufacturer’s warranty for several years and thousands of miles. Drive more confidently knowing you’re in good hands.

A Used Truck: Certified Pre-Owned

Certified pre-owned trucks undergo inspection and service to provide the best truck possible. These trucks have to be less than six years old and have less than 75,000 miles, and all used trucks come with a CarFax report.

Whether you choose to buy a new or used truck, we have a wide selection of both here at Carl Hogan Automotive in our inventory.
