For new Ford F-150 trucks, try the "Find a Dealer" tool at Ford.com or online car-buying services like TrueCar and CarsDirect. Online classifieds located at Autotrader and Craigslist, as well as auction sites including eBay Motors, can be good sources for used F-150 models.
The "Find a Dealer" tool on Ford's official website allows users to search for dealers located near their own ZIP code. The tool also offers filters for those seeking dealers with specialized services such as business fleet sales and certified pre-owned models. Some individual dealers list their currently available stock online, while others require their customers to visit the dealership, or contact an online or telephone representative, in order to see what actual models are available.
Several online car-buying services function by offering partnerships with their trusted dealer networks that may bring lower pricing than that offered by an individual brick-and-mortar dealership. TrueCar, Edmunds, Beepi, CarsDirect and others list new and pre-owned F-150 trucks searchable by location, trim level and individual options, then put their users in touch with a brick-and-mortar dealer to complete the sale.
Those seeking used or certified pre-owned models might want to try online classifieds for trucks listed for sale both by private parties and by car dealerships. In most areas, Craigslist lists a wide variety of F-150 trucks for sale by private parties, especially older models that often bring lower pricing. Autotrader does list private-party sellers, but specializes in used vehicles listed for sale by dealerships.
