The best way to find the resale value of a Ford F150 truck is by entering the year, model, mileage and other requested information into the Kelly Blue Book search engine. The Kelly Blue Book, used throughout the auto industry, provides average prices for dealer and private party sales.
From the Kelly Blue Book used pickup page, select Ford, then select F150. This brings up all five of the basic Ford F150 categories and the years when they were in production. Select your model. If you select the F150 regular cab, the next screen shows all the years available for pricing. Pick a year to go to the next screen.
If you select 2013, for example, the website pulls up a list of five different styles. Select the style; the next page has a form that covers mileage, power train, packages, options and color. Input the mileage, if known, then click on each section and fill it out. Some items that are standard on that vehicle are already marked.
Clicking the price type button leads to a screen with different pricing options. Select one and click the Get Used Price button. If you selected the dealer price, the next screen lists the range of prices usually asked for along with the fair purchase price. The tab to the right pulls up certified trucks bought from a dealer, which usually have higher price points.
The next tab shows the average price asked by private party sellers for a car in good condition. Find prices for cars in excellent, very good and fair condition by clicking on the green dots on the graph or using the condition button under the chart.
