What to Look for When Buying a Used Truck

Size and Class

Choosing a truck has a little to do with your sense of style and much to do with what you plan on doing with the truck. Unless you veer into commercial truck territory, trucks generally come in two sizes: midsize trucks and full-size trucks, which are broken down into various weights that allude to their levels of strength.

Midsize trucks are the smaller of the two and are generally marketed to drivers who need a versatile truck that transitions well from city-street cruises to campsite adventures. Full-size trucks are larger and stronger, making them excellent options for drivers who need their pickup for towing or enjoy the boost in all-terrain confidence.

Trim Levels

Once you decide what size of truck you'd like to see in your driveway, you must choose a trim level next. Trim levels are linear progressions of luxury and often capability. Generally, the higher the trim level you choose, the more impressive your truck's list of features will be. However, the price tag also grows with the trim level.

The trim level system allows drivers to find the best balance between features and budget-friendliness. Rather than pay for every available creature comfort, shoppers can simply choose the trim level that comes equipped with the features they're most excited for. A suped-up off-roading truck might not be the best choice for a driver who just wants to make trips to the home improvement store easier, so that driver might go down a trim level to save some money.

Body Configuration

Many pickups - including Toyota's models - give you multiple options when it comes to cabin size and bed length. The 2020 Tundra, for example, is available in either a double cab or CrewMax cabin and one of three bed lengths. These are highly personal decisions, as only you know how much passenger space you need and how long you need your bed to be.

With that, let's introduce Toyota's pickup family: the iconic Tacoma and the powerful Tundra.

Toyota Tacoma

The Tacoma is the midsize truck option in the Toyota family. The current generation of Tacomas began with the 2016 model year's complete redesign. This reimagining of the Tacoma changed the way many drivers think about the midsize truck class. With a larger, tougher appearance and a more impressive array of confidence-boosting performance gear, the latest Tacomas have established themselves as a go-to truck for drivers with a sense of adventure.

The 2020 model is available in six trim levels: the SR, SR5 TRD Sport, TRD Off-Road, Limited, and TRD Pro. As you might be able to tell from the trim level names, the Tacoma is all about a go-anywhere, do-anything attitude.

Toyota Tundra

The Toyota Tundra is a half-ton, full-size pickup truck that's designed to get tough jobs done. For the 2020 model, the trim levels were the SR, SR5, Limited, Platinum, 1794 Edition, and TRD Pro.

This model can tow over 10,000 pounds of trailer, which is enough for most of your light-duty travel trailers. The 2020 Tundra makes hauling easier with its array of towing technology, such as the integrated trailer brake controller, tow-specific drive mode, and 4-/7-pin connector. The Tundra's larger size also translates to more cabin space, especially if you choose a model with the CrewMax cabin. The TRD Pro is the most trail-ready of the Tundra lineup if you plan on taking your truck off the pavement.

How to Buy a Used Truck

Buying a used truck can be simple with the right amount of research and help. When you're ready to put pen to paper on your used truck purchase, keep these tips in mind as you search for the perfect pickup:

Know Your Budget

A good dealership will offer you a good price for the truck you're considering, but it's up to you to know how much truck you can afford. Before you set out shopping, sit down with your finances and work out how much you can afford to put into a down payment and monthly payments. Try not to base this on what you think you will make in the future - plan it around what you can afford now, or wait to shop once you enter that more financially secure future.

Always Test Drive

Never purchase a used truck without test driving it first. You should get a sense of whether the truck feels like something you could drive long-term. You're also looking for signs of damage, such as rattling, misaligned steering, or problems with the accelerator and brake. If you can, take the truck up to highway speeds to see how it handles.

Look for Certified Pre-Owned Trucks

Know the difference between certified pre-owned and used trucks. A certified pre-owned Tundra or Tacoma has been thoroughly inspected, lightly used, and properly taken care of. A used truck may have the same attributes, but the factory certification is a valuable way to put your mind at ease if you're worried about the quality of your pre-owned vehicle.

Choose a Dealership You Can Trust

We may be a little biased, but we suggest going with a certified dealership when you decide it's time for your next used truck. Gambling on private sales can lead to very stressful situations. A trustworthy certified dealership will have made sure that the used vehicles on its lot are up to snuff and free from disappointing surprises. A dealership will also be able to service your exact make and model when it comes time for a maintenance check or if something should go wrong with your used truck. The list of reasons to choose a certified dealership goes on.
