Should You Buy a New or Used Chevy Truck in Sandusky, OH?
A truck can be expensive to buy, especially if you buy a loaded Chevrolet Silverado here in Sandusky, Ohio. But, they don’t have to be. You can save a lot of money by buying a used Chevy truck from Foster Chevrolet instead of a new one. And, you’ll still get the great features and top-notch performance you want.
Benefits of buying a used truck
The financial upsides to buying a used truck go far beyond just a cheaper sticker price. When you buy a new truck, its value drops dramatically within the first three years of ownership. But when you buy a pre-owned truck, your Silverado or Colorado will most likely be passed this initial nosedive in value, making it a more secure long-term investment for your hard-earned cash.
Insurance costs and purchase fees tend to be based on the value of the truck you’re buying. Since that price is lower on a used truck, these additional costs will also be lower.
Plenty of great Chevy trucks are available pre-owned at Foster Chevrolet that have great features. These days, older models have many of the same bells and whistles as new ones, so you’re not missing out by buying an older model.
Even if your tastes are somewhat luxurious, you’ll be able to afford more fine materials and high-tech features in an older truck than in a new one. You can put your money toward a higher-trim Colorado or Silverado model if you buy one that’s 4-5 years old.
Modern features in older Chevy trucks
You won’t have to compromise on the features you want when you buy a used Chevrolet truck. For instance, the Chevy Silverado 1500 has come standard with a backup camera since 2018, and it’s been available with convenience features like a power tailgate and its handy Trailering App since 2019.
If you prefer the smaller Colorado, its powerful 2.8-liter turbo-diesel engine has been around as far back as the 2016 model, while the lauded ZR2 off-roading trim has been on offer since 2017.
The Silverado HD has offered Forward Collision Warning as an option since 2016, keeping you safer while you’re working. And it’s had Wi-Fi capability for seven years now, so you can stay connected while you’re on the job site.
