Continuing an upward trend in pre-owned auto purchases in recent years, a record 39.2 million used vehicles were sold in 2017, and for good reason. A new vehicle loses more than 67 percent of its value after the first five years of ownership, according to a recent report by Kelley Blue Book. Fortunately, trucks and SUVs retain their value better than many other automotive styles, meaning buying a used pickup could
be a savvy financial investment moving forward -- especially when
comparing manufacturer resale values. Chevrolet recently topped the
Forbes list of estimated best resale value for full-size pickup trucks. In fact, this was the second year in
a row that the Chevrolet Silverado HD earned this honor. Nonetheless,
purchasing a pre-owned vehicle does come with more risk than purchasing a
new vehicle, so knowing
what to look for when buying a used truck can save you lot of money.
