If large tires, sitting high, and feeling a cozy interior while your vehicle handles it all for you sound exciting, it is time to talk. If you have ever wondered what driving through mud, over dunes of sand or dirt, and climbing over rocky terrain feels like, then you need to hop in a truck. Finding a used truck dealer can be difficult as there are so many places to go—and people to see—you know that whole saying, right? Not to mention, if you can find someone trustworthy to sell you a good truck with a long life. Here, at Future Ford of Sacramento, you can find exactly what you are looking for, with a range of sizes: compact, midsize, and full size. Trucks are rugged, powerful, and downright thrilling. Purchasing a truck can open a world of opportunity for you. So, what are you waiting for? Let’s explore what is out there so you can narrow down your tough decision.
A full-size truck is exactly like that, saying, “the bigger the better.” It is typically one of the more expensive options out of the three types of trucks, but for good reason. Full-size trucks have bigger engines that allow them to haul more and go farther, not to mention their capability to handle just about any type of road (or lack thereof). With the ability to carry a heavy payload, these are durable trucks that can handle almost any task you give them. The full-size trucks we carry are the Ford F-150, GMC Sierra, Chevy Silverado, Nissan Titan, and Toyota Tundra.
The Ford F-150 and Chevy Silverado are two fantastic trucks that happen to be rivals. However, with so many similarities, truly, either option is a valuable purchase. Used F-150s and Silverados will hold a long life and continue to impress long before you consider searching for an upgrade. Both are well-equipped to handle purposes of entertainment, connection, and safety. There is no stopping until you get tired, and they will still be waiting for you to get behind the wheel again. Both have powerful engines and a drive to work through rain, sun, or snow. They will travel long or short distances to get you where you need to go.
Most recent model years of the GMC Sierra share similar features and engines with unique differences; of course, the younger, the better in terms of updates and advancements. However, the Sierra is not quite as much a working truck as the Silverado and F-150 might be. In fact, this GMC truck is more refined and focuses on interior comfort and state-of-the-art technology. This truck is perfect for individuals or families looking for full size without having the complete ruggedness of a workhorse.
Let’s not forget the classic Nissan Titan—classic because it is about to become one; GMC has recently announced that they will discontinue the Titan as they focus on electric vehicles. That is not to say Nissan may not come back with an electrified Titan. But, powerful used pickups serve a particular purpose; they are rugged and ready-to-go and will be difficult to replace. Then you have the Toyota Tundra—another powerful truck able to keep up with healthy horsepower and excellent ratings in safety and powertrain. These are two more great options from which to choose.
Are you like the Goldilocks from the Three Bears? You don’t like the porridge too hot or too cold, but just right? Well, midsize trucks are between full-size and compact, making a convenient ride for those looking for a car that has the most capabilities of a full-size and closer to the full efficiency and maintenance of a compact. Midsize trucks were actually brought to life through Henry Ford, making Ford the first company to develop these versatile vehicles. We carry midsize trucks from several different brands, like the Ford Ranger, Chevy Colorado, GMC Canyon, Toyota Tacoma, and Nissan Frontier. With this many choices, you will surely find a midsize truck to be crazy about.
The Ford Ranger and the Chevy Colorado are heating up the midsize game. These used trucks can make a great ride for those who yearn for a bit of hauling power and cargo space but love easier handling for smooth drives. These trucks have the cravable, rugged appearance of a full-size truck without intimidating the driver. The Colorado is above average when it comes to reliability, and the Ranger is ready for adventure. These are comparable midsize trucks and a great bang for your buck.
The GMC Canyon is also like a mirrored version of the Colorado. They offer much power and versatility that gives midsize a new meaning. The Toyota Tacoma, however, seems to be unmatched and a little brother to the Tundra. It has also been named Kelly Blue Book’s Best for Resale Value for the past ten years. The Nissan Frontier is a four-door explorer and is similar to the Tacoma in terms of high reliability ratings and safety. It’s another fantastic lineup for midsize trucks.
Driving in a Compact
What is a compact truck? Well, a compact truck is, you guessed it, the smallest of the three types. These trucks typically are more like sedans in terms of affordability, fuel economy, and size, yet have better cargo space, towing, and payload weight capabilities. There are two options at Future Ford that will have you wanting more compact: the Ford Maverick and the Hyundai Santa Cruz.
Some of the cheaper options for used trucks are compacts like the Ford Maverick. This is because of their simple builds and because they don’t need roll-bars. It also happens that these compact trucks are made using older technology. This all helps keep the costs low so that you can have a nice, reliable ride with the Maverick’s versatility and durability.
The Hyundai Santa Cruz is a unique design with more curves than the Maverick. Its appearance is almost futuristic—a strange and wonderful love-child of a pickup and an SUV—which is not bad when considering a used compact truck with excellent ratings on reliability and solid fuel economy. Both of these are stunning compact rides—good-looking, versatile, and dependable.
