What Does "trocas Baratas" Mean?

The Spanish phrase "trocas baratas" translates to "cheap trucks" in English. This phrase is commonly followed by the phrase "en venta," which means "for sale."

Though the word "baratas" is one of several proper Spanish words for "cheap," the first word of the phrase is a slang word in Mexico and the United States. "Trocas" is an example of an Anglicism, or a borrowed English word. In this case, the English word "truck" is spelled and pronounced like a feminine noun in Spanish. "Trocas" is rarely used outside of the United States and Mexico, as the rest of the Spanish-speaking world use the word "camioneta" to refer to a pickup truck.
