#1 – Determine a Budget: Your budget will drive the rest of your choices when it comes to selecting a Chevy model. While buying used can certainly get you more features and options, you’ll still need to have a number in mind before you visit the dealership.
#2 – Determine How Much Truck You Need: Chevy offers a variety of sizes in the used market. The S-10 is a smaller truck designed for carting around lightweight cargo, or towing smaller items. You can also consider the classic Chevy Silverado. Available in half-ton, three-quarter-ton, and one-ton class pickup trucks, the Silverado has an option for everyone.
#3 – Determine How Much Engine You Need: Within each class of Chevy truck, there are different engine options. The size engine you’ll need will be determined by what you’ll be using the truck for. Consider the weight of your cargo and anything you’ll be towing with it. Don’t forget to calculate the trailer weight into it. All of this will help determine, within the truck class you’ve chosen, which engine you should get.
#4 – Research Trim Packages: It’s important to understand the features and options that come with the different Lakeland used Chevy trucks you will be looking at. For example, the Chevy sports package will have upgraded amenities, some of which you may need, and some you may not. It’s important to understand the options so you know what to expect with each used Chevy truck you are interested in.
