History of Trucks

Today you find trucks in metropolitan areas and the suburbs, but their roots are on farms. Henry Ford built the first pickup when he released the 1925 Model T Roadster Pickup. Ford had been looking for a way to make a vehicle that would be useful to farmers and other workers that needed to transport large cargo on a regular basis.

It might be surprising, but all early trucks were two-wheel drive. It wasn't until the 1946 Dodge Power Wagon that factory four-wheel drive was made available to the regular consumer. With the new four-wheel drive trucks, it became clear that the pickup was expanding outside of farm territory into larger markets. Throughout the 20th century, features like larger, more comfortable cabins and sleeker exteriors would show up across the truck market––as seen in the Ford and Chevy flat-nosed pickups at the time. The 1955 Cameo Carrier from Chevy served as further evidence that trucks were becoming more luxurious. This truck had smooth fiberglass panels for a more car-like aesthetic.

Not long after, we saw the emergence of the four-door, crew cab trucks that were more spacious and comfortable. But while trucks were getting bigger, they were also getting smaller. Big names like Chevy and Ford started making compact trucks, with the Chevy LUV and Ford Courier both hitting the market in 1972 in response to the Datsun Hardbody and Toyota Pickup.

Then, in a total pivot, performance trucks started showing up. In 1993, Chevy put out the 454 SS, which was the beginning of performance trucks as we know them today, with high horsepower and impressive engines. In 2010, Ford redefined the segment with the SVT Raptor, taking pickup performance off-road. Since then, Chevy has also introduced off-road trucks, including the Colorado ZR2 in 2016 and Silverado ZR2 in 2022. Today, pickup trucks continue to evolve, adding more features and more power with each passing year.

The Different Truck Sizes

When looking at used trucks for sale, you'll come across a few terms that are important to understand. Some of the most important terms cover the different sizes of trucks. To begin with, most used trucks for sale are midsize, full-size, or heavy-duty.

Midsize trucks are going to have smaller cabs and cargo beds and lower towing and payload capacities than full-size trucks. For this reason, they're also going to cost less money, enjoy better fuel efficiency, and be easier to maneuver and park. However, many have four-wheel drive and powerful engines available, so don't let the word "midsize" fool you––they are still real trucks. The Chevy Colorado and the Ford Ranger are both considered midsize pickups.

Full-size trucks will have better towing and hauling capabilities than midsize trucks and are the most popular type of truck in America. However, this will come at the cost of awkward, heavier handling and worse fuel economy than what you will find in midsize trucks. Popular full-size models include the Chevy Silverado 1500, Ford F-150, and Ram 1500.

If even a full-size truck isn't enough for your needs, it is time to step up to a heavy-duty truck. These top-of-the-line models are designed for commercial-grade towing and hauling. Heavy-duty trucks are generally split between three-quarter-ton models like the Chevy Silverado 2500 HD and Ford F-250 and one-ton models like the Chevy Silverado 3500 HD and Ford F-350. While their payloads are different, you'll often find that their interiors share many similarities.

Used Chevy Trucks

As a trusted brand that has reeled buyers in for decades, Chevy makes excellent trucks. A used Chevy truck is still a superb vehicle with a lot of life left in it. Truck enthusiasts and those simply seeking a reliable and powerful vehicle alike love Chevy pickups since they are known for being so highly versatile. Chevy offers a slew of pickup truck models that are popular as used vehicles. Some of the most well-loved used Chevy truck models that grace our dealership include the Colorado, Silverado 1500, and Silverado HD.

The Chevy Silverado 1500 is one of the most popular pickup trucks on the market today. Since it debuted in 1999, the Silverado has proven itself to have appeal across the board. This is a full-size pickup truck with numerous configurations to choose from, so you can find whatever you need without too much hassle. Its cabin offers a stupendous amount of space in crew cab models. There is a long list of different engines to select from, making it easy for you to find the right balance between power output and fuel efficiency. You can get a massive amount of towing from the standard Silverado 1500, even without upgrading to the Silverado HD.

The current generation Silverado’s body and frame are manufactured from steel and aluminum, making this pickup lighter than any previous generation. Sure, it is lightweight, but this truck is also quite durable, able to withstand a lot of abuse on the job site or trail. Even a used Chevy Silverado has a lot of life left in it, and it can absolutely take on whatever road less traveled you decide to trek down. There are also off-road-oriented options (namely, the Trail Boss and ZR2 trim levels) that enhance your experience traveling off the beaten path.

Maybe you are in the market for a pickup truck that is smaller than the Silverado. If you are, then the Chevy Colorado should fit your need for a more compact truck. Due to its smaller stature, it is a pickup that can easily navigate the winding and crowded streets you encounter in the city. It offers several different bed lengths and powertrain options to select from, so you can find used Colorado models in various configurations. You can even find rear-wheel drive and four-wheel drive models available, opening up a lot of different possibilities for you.

Some used Colorado models are built for off-roading. The ZR2 trim level is a capable off-roader that comes in several versions, including the popular Bison variant. The ZR2 gives the Colorado a lifted suspension and wider track than the standard model, as well as enhancements like skid plates. With a selection of chic interior trim options and features, you will feel like you are riding around in the lap of luxury without compromising the truck’s ruggedness and physical prowess.

Used GMC Trucks

Like Chevy, GMC is a subsidiary of General Motors, which means that GMC trucks are akin to the Chevy lineup––with some differences. Used GMC trucks are popular among truck owners for their immense capabilities, rugged nature, and lasting durability. Also, like Chevy, GMC has a lengthy history of manufacturing trucks known for their strong powertrains, high towing capacity, and expert craftsmanship inside and out. GMC offers a diverse lineup of truck models, including the Sierra 1500, Sierra HD, and Canyon.

The GMC Sierra 1500 rolled out back in 1988 and shares many features with its corporate cousin, the Chevy Silverado 1500. However, the GMC version is known to offer upscale styling and additional luxury features compared to the Chevy lineup. The Sierra 1500 is well-loved, achieving prestige over the years and winning awards from the NHTSA, IIHS, J.D. Power, and more. This light-duty pickup truck now comes in a slew of different configurations, just like the Silverado 1500.

Each model year, the Sierra performs well, offering plenty of space and containing many high-tech, advanced features. The Sierra’s list of engines includes V6, V8, and diesel options. What’s more, the Sierra is available in light-duty and heavy-duty versions, so you can take your pick depending on the max towing and payload capacities you require. This truck provides beefy towing and hauling capacities, which is why it doubles as a workhorse and a daily commuter so effectively.

The midsize Canyon balances out maneuverability and capability in excellent form. First launched onto the market in 2004, the Canyon delivers a refined cabin design, a comfortable ride quality, and a plethora of available––and desirable––modern features. The Canyon is equipped with a number of different engine options, including a diesel engine. Choosing the diesel engine offers good fuel economy without taking anything away from the vehicle’s power. The Canyon is well suited for off-roading, given its ride height and available 4WD drivetrain, but it works just as well on the beaten path since its ride quality is so utterly refined.

Used Toyota Trucks

A used Toyota pickup can be a solid choice if you are looking for something dependable and affordable. Used Toyota trucks are known for having a high resale value and lasting for years due to their robust design qualities. Toyota and longevity are basically synonymous, making these trucks popular choices. The Toyota Tacoma and Tundra are two fantastic used trucks that come through our inventory.

Known for its off-road prowess and versatility, the Toyota Tacoma offers a comfortable ride quality, a great reputation for endurance, and a well-crafted cabin. The Tacoma has several powertrain options, including a V6 engine and a manual transmission. Its advanced off-road features––like 4WD, an off-road suspension, and protective skid plates––make it a strong option for those craving adventure on or off the road.

The full-size Tundra is known for its power, towing capacity, and cavernous cabin. You can equip it with various powertrains, including a V8 engine in older models and a hybrid twin-turbo V6 in newer trucks. The Tundra is highly regarded for its excellent build quality, extreme durability, and refined driving qualities. This makes the Tundra suitable for heavy-duty jobs and daily driving alike.

Used Ford Trucks

We also get a lot of Ford trucks in our used inventory, and they can make excellent daily drivers and work trucks. There are a variety of used Ford truck models on the used market, and they all have reputations for being affordable and athletic, able to get any job done in an efficient manner. You might see models in our inventory like the F-150, the Super Duty (F-250, F-350, and F-450), and the Ranger.

The full-size Ford F-150 is the best-selling vehicle in the United States and has been since it debuted in 1975. Its robust construction and range of capabilities attract all kinds of buyers. You can find used F-150 models with V6 and V8 engines, meeting your unique needs. Do you need something more heavy-duty? The Super Duty lineup consists of heavy-duty trucks manufactured for commercial-grade work. Their towing and payload capacities make them ideal for intense jobs, striking quite a balance between efficiency and power.

A smaller model might be in order, especially for those living in the city. In recent years, the midsize Ranger has made quite the comeback on the US market. While still having strong towing and payload capacities, the Ranger is compact and easy to maneuver. Also, the Ranger is known for its desirable fuel economy, spirited handling, and off-roading abilities. Urban drivers and those living out in the country both love this versatile used truck.
