Wondering Why Are Used Pickups So Expensive? We’ve Got Answers

If you’ve spent time looking for a quality used pickup truck at an affordable price, you are already well aware of how difficult it can be to find what you’re looking for. There are a variety of reasons that the used market for pickup trucks is so different than with other vehicles. The first major reason is that truck drivers keep their vehicles for longer on average than other drivers. If you bought your pickup truck in 2010 to use for work, you likely weren’t already thinking about selling it in 2016, because why not just use it until it isn’t running anymore?

It is a simple truth that truck drivers will hang on to their vehicles for longer, partially because there’s no real point in upgrading their work vehicle, and also because so many trucks are just built to last. This has resulted in high quality used trucks becoming something of a valuable commodity. Why are used pickup trucks so expensive? There just aren’t as many used trucks out there, so the ones that are available are quite a bit more valuable.

As new pickup trucks become more and more expensive and loaded out with features, the price of future used pickup trucks also increases.

Why Are Used Pickup Trucks So Expensive? Because New Pickup Trucks Are More Expensive

You might have noticed how it seems every new pickup truck on the road today is loaded to the brim with high-end features and extra packages. While there are relatively few base model trucks available, there are more top-tier trim options available than ever before. That means that the trucks that do get re-sold tend to be of a more expensive variety. Logically, if there are fewer base model trucks on the road then there will be fewer base model trucks on the used market. All too often we hear the question: “Why are used pickup trucks so expensive?” We’ve given you some of the reasons, and now it’s time to talk about what you can do about it.
