Pickup trucks are common vehicles on the used market, so used car dealers are likely to have some of these vehicles in their inventories. Other options for acquiring a used pickup truck include private sellers that list their trucks on sites such as Autotrader and eBay.
Pickup trucks are common vehicles on the used market due to the large number of new pickups sold every year. The Ford F-150 pickup has been the best-selling vehicle in the United States since the 1990s, with the Chevrolet Silverado frequently taking second place. There are used trucks in the inventory of most used car dealers that do not specialize in exotic vehicles or European brands and that do not produce trucks for the American market.
Another option for purchasing a used truck is to purchase a certified pre-owned vehicle. Certified pre-owned trucks are late-model vehicles inspected by the manufacturer before they are resold. These trucks often come with a significantly longer and more inclusive warranty as compared to most used vehicles. For example, Ford's certified pre-owned trucks receive a 172-point inspection before sale and are covered by a 12-month or 12,000-mile comprehensive warranty as well as a seven-year or 100,000-mile powertrain warranty, as of 2015.
