Used Trucks for Sale

A hard-working and reliable truck is essential for many people to be able to get their jobs done, especially anyone working in a trade where things like payload and towing capacity are of the utmost importance. While a brand-new pickup is certainly a lot of fun to drive, it is not necessarily practical or affordable for everyone, making a used truck a great option. As you start looking at used trucks for sale, it is important that you find a great selection of vehicles so that you can get the kind of performance and power you need. That is exactly what you will find here at McCluskey Chevrolet.

Our impressive inventory of used pickups gives you access to a wide range of different vehicles so that you can get exactly what you need. Whether you are looking for a compact or midsize truck built for city driving or even going off-road, or you need a full-size option with enough muscle to handle any job you throw at it, we can help you find it. You deserve to shop with people who understand the importance of your truck, who will listen to you, and who will make sure you drive away in the right pickup. Come visit us at McCluskey Chevrolet today to discover how easy it can be to find the perfect truck that will keep working as hard as you do.

Great Compact Truck Options

Although we certainly appreciate large and powerful full-size trucks (more on those in a moment), sometimes you need something smaller. A compact pickup is one designed to easily fit into even a modest lifestyle, with a smaller design that is typically shorter and is not as wide as midsize or full-size options. There have been pretty limited options for anyone interested in a compact truck in recent years, but the growing popularity of smaller pickups has resulted in new models being introduced, which is leading to more options for a used compact truck.

In recent years, the Nissan Frontier was your best pick if you were interested in a compact truck to help you maneuver in cities and job sites where small stature is advantageous. The Frontier is a great option that has offered impressive power and performance for many years, though it has recently been joined by more options. While you might not find quite as many of them out there just yet when shopping for used models, the Hyundai Santa Cruz and the Ford Maverick are both excellent compact pickups. These trucks have all proven that choosing a small option does not mean you have to sacrifice capability or bold performance.

Impressive Midsize Trucks

If you are looking for a truck that offers a “middle way” between the small stature of a compact model and the full power of a larger pickup, then a midsize option is the perfect choice. These are among the most popular models on the road because they deliver on that balance between size and capability, giving you impressive performance that can meet a wide range of needs. While they cannot match the monster capability of a full-size truck, a midsize pickup can still be a great choice for many owners, even those who work in trades.

One point of unnecessary potential confusion: a lot of people will refer to midsize models as “small” or even “compact,” especially in previous years when there were almost no actual compact trucks available. It is important to know exactly what you are looking for in terms of size and – perhaps more importantly – capability in order to ensure you are checking out the right size class. While a compact model like the 2015 Nissan Frontier can be as short as just 205 inches in length, a midsize model like the Chevy Colorado from the same year can be nearly 225 inches long, which illustrates just how different these classes can be.

To get a sense of the kind of capability you can find in midsize models, the 2018 Chevy Colorado, for example, can handle between 3,500 lbs and 7,000 lbs of conventional towing, or more than 1,500 lbs of maximum payload depending on the configuration and engine. Similarly, the 2019 Ford Ranger can handle up to 7,500 lbs of maximum towing and can have just over 1,800 lbs of maximum payload when properly equipped. These are high-end examples of two of the best midsize trucks on the road, but if you do not need anything beyond those limits, then this class can be a great option for you.

Unbeatable Full-Size Pickups

On the other hand, if you are looking for the largest and most powerful trucks available, then a full-size option is definitely the way to go. These are trucks designed to handle pretty much anything you can imagine throwing at them, giving them capabilities beyond what compact or midsize pickups can come close to. Just like with other options, the full capability of these trucks depends on numerous factors, including the engine and configuration, so keep that in mind as you look at different used options. But in general, if you need serious power and the ability to handle massive amounts of weight, then a full-size truck should be on your radar.

There are some specific and unique terms that you will often hear when looking at different full-size pickup models; understanding what they each mean can make it a lot easier to find the right one. You will frequently hear people refer to “half-ton,” “three-quarter-ton,” and “full-ton” or “one-ton” pickups. All three of these categories refer to full-size models, but they are ways to specify the amount of capability that you are looking at with a truck. The potentially confusing issue, however, is they are simply descriptive terms these days and not literal expressions of how much weight a truck can handle.

Many decades ago, these terms were literal: a half-ton truck could handle up to 1,000 lbs (a half-ton) of payload capacity – three-quarter-ton models had 1,500 lbs of payload, while one-ton or full-ton trucks could handle up to 2,000 lbs of payload. You might notice, however, that the Chevy Colorado we looked at up above, a midsize model, can handle more than 1,500 lbs of payload and should therefore be a three-quarter-ton truck – but no one is going to call it that.

These days, the old terms are simply a carryover that makes it easy to refer to the three different classes of full-size trucks available. Popular half-ton models include the Chevy Silverado 1500, the Ford F-150, and the Ram 1500 – as well as the Nissan Titan and Toyota Tundra. These are also sometimes called “light-duty” models since they are the full-size trucks that have the lowest towing and payload capabilities. The 2019 Silverado 1500, for example, can handle up to 12,200 lbs of towing and more than 2,200 lbs of maximum payload.

When people refer to a three-quarter-ton truck, they are referring to models that can handle more weight than the light-duty pickups. They include popular options like the Chevy Silverado 2500 HD, the Ford F-250, and the Ram 2500. To give you some context of capability, the 2019 Silverado 2500 HD can handle more than 14,000 lbs of towing capacity. Finally, the one-ton trucks of today are among the most powerful pickups on the road, also called “heavy-duty” models, and they include the Silverado 3500 HD, the Ford F-350, and the Ram 3500. When properly equipped and using a gooseneck hitch, the 2020 Silverado 3500 HD, for example, can handle more than 35,000 lbs of towing capacity.

Expert Financing Assistance

Just as important as finding the right truck to meet your needs is figuring out a financing solution that will work for you. Trucks, even used models, are designed to be some of the most powerful vehicles on the road, which can make them a bit pricier than many other types of vehicles. Finding the best way to afford your truck and ensure you get something that will fit your budget can not only help you get your job done but help reduce stress and worry.

Our financing experts are here to help you with everything you need as you figure out the right financing solution for your next truck. If you already have a lender that you want to use, then we can make sure that is your best option by showing you all of the possibilities available to you. Even if your credit is not as great as you would like, our guaranteed credit approval and easy online tools like a payment calculator and pre-approval form can help you find the right way to afford your next vehicle.

Whether you are looking for something that you can use for going off-road and getting around town, or you need a truck to help you get your job done or add to a business fleet, we are here to help. Figuring out financing does not have to be stressful or keep you from getting the truck you need, but going it alone can make the process much more difficult. Let our financing experts help you find the right way to get the perfect truck and have it fit your budget.
