If you need a rugged truck that can handle off-road conditions, then a 4×4 diesel truck may be the way to go. The four-wheel drive and higher chassis stance allow you to leave the safety of the paved road and head into uncharted (and ungraded) territory. Over the years, the extra wheel power of a 4×4 has come to be viewed as a nice-to-have option and not a need-to-have selection. This distinction means that the market for these trucks is a bit smaller than 2×4 diesels.
With only a handful of 4×4 trucks being manufactured, it can be difficult to find a used one. That being said, it still may be worth looking into because there are some advantages of buying a used 4×4 diesel truck from your Orlando used truck experts.
No new truck depreciation
We’ve all heard it at least once in our lives, “The moment you drive a new truck off the lot, it immediately loses value.” It’s an unfortunate but true statement when buying a new 4×4 truck. However, this is where buying a used 4×4 diesel truck has its advantages because that first drop in appreciation has already happened, and it wasn’t on your dime.
Used trucks are still reliable
Just because you’re buying used, doesn’t mean you have to compromise on the reliability of your used 4×4 diesel truck. When purchased from a reputable dealer, many used vehicles are put through a rigorous inspection before they even hit the lot. For example, at Gibson Truck World we have a 135-point inspection process to ensure we’re only selling the best quality used trucks. When you find someone offering this type of quality, you can feel good knowing that “used” can be just as reliable as new.
Pricing you can take to the bank
Used 4×4 diesel truck prices are often lower than their brand new counterparts and you still get many of the advantages of a new vehicle. Purchasing a used truck can often save you thousands of dollars – money you can use to invest in a new trailer!
With similar reliability and features at a reduced cost, it’s easy to see why many people are choosing to buy used trucks instead of new. The key is finding a dealership that works hard to find quality used trucks. That way, you get all of the advantages of a used 4×4 diesel truck without any headaches.
