You’re in the market for a used truck, but you don’t want to spend over $10,000. The good news is that you don’t have to break your budget to find a good, reliable truck that can get the job done. Our staff here at Joe’s Auto Sales East encourages you to check out this short list of top-rated trucks (courtesy of Kelley Blue Book) that may just fit your needs. Top Used Trucks

1. 2009 Ford F-250 Super Duty

Ford has been a forerunner in the American pickup truck world for years, so you really can’t go wrong with this dependable truck that offers a smooth ride as well as rough-and-tumble power (especially if you opt for the 5.4-liter V8 engine). However, the KBB experts recommend that you double-check the condition of the engine and transmission, especially as the vehicle gets more miles on it.

2. 2010 Ford F-150

With an average 8.8/10 Kelley Blue Book (KBB) consumer rating, this truck will put you close to your $10,000 budget, but it has a comfortable interior as well as the power you expect from a Ford pickup. But, like #1 on our list, be sure to ask whether the engine or transmission has been replaced, or ask if you can get it inspected prior to purchase to make sure it still has plenty of life left in it.

3. 2008 Chevrolet Silverado 1500

You’ll pay a bit less than a Ford for the Silverado, and it comes equipped with plenty of horsepower, decent gas mileage (15 city/20 highway), and a full-size GM platform that seems to perform better than some of its predecessors. With any used truck, be sure to look for a well-maintained vehicle with service records, if possible. You may also want to have your mechanic (or ours!) take a look at it just to give you peace of mind. You can try to find a used truck on your own, or you can also put us to work. You can check out our current used truck inventory, or allow us to help you find just the right truck that is dependable and in your price point.
