Pickup trucks are the most popular vehicle in the United States, and for good reason. Trucks are versatile, powerful and just plain fun. However, new trucks are expensive. If you want a truck in your life, but can’t afford a new model, consider buying a pre-owned truck. Here at Carl Hogan Automotive, we have a huge inventory of pre-owned truck models from a variety of brands. Here are five reasons why you should buy a pre-owned truck.
The price of a new truck can easily reach $40,000 or more. When you buy a new truck, you can save thousands of dollars, even with a model just a few years old. This cost savings can help you afford any custom modifications you might want to do on your truck. It can also give you more room in your budget to get a nicer model, perhaps allowing you to move up a few trim levels.
Cars and trucks are lasting longer than ever. Rusted out vehicles are becoming a rare sight on American roads. It is not uncommon for cars of all shapes and sizes to reach well over 100,000 miles with minimal problems.
Certified Pre-Owned Programs
If you want a truck that is like-new, while still getting a used price, consider a Certified Pre-Owned truck. Here at Carl Hogan Automotive, we have CPO Chevrolet, GMC and Ram truck models available.
If you prefer the design or features of an older truck, you can get what you want in the used market. With new trucks, you are limited to one or two model years.
Wear & Tear
While trucks are designed for hard work, many people rarely take advantage of their truck’s full capabilities. Look for a truck with minimal signs of wear that has been well-cared for.
