Buying a used pickup truck is a smart financial decision. When you choose a previously owned pickup, it puts you ahead of the depreciation curve. Every new vehicle faces steep depreciation the moment it rolls off the dealer’s lot, and pickup trucks are no exception.
We’ve chosen 10 of the best used pickup trucks under $25,000. That’s roughly half the price of the average price of a brand-new 2018 truck. Factory certified pre-owned is a great way to go, but your choices will be limited in this price range, depending on the model. You may be able to find a supply of certified pre-owned Ford F-150 half-ton pickups in the $25,000 neighborhood, but that will certainly not be the case for three-quarter ton trucks, as they demand a premium.
