More affordable

The biggest advantage to buying a used truck over a new truck is price. There is the issue of depreciation. A new Silverado 1500 begins to lose value as soon as you get behind the wheel, and within a couple of years, it is worth considerably less than it was the day it was purchased. This is why you can save thousands of dollars on vehicles that are only a few model years old, and still get many of the same features as this year’s model. While cars and trucks are updated every year, the overall look of vehicles, the safety features and the connectivity and audio technology don’t change that quickly. You can get a very nice Chevy Silverado that looks and acts new while saving you some cash.


By the time a truck is offered for sale as a pre-owned vehicle, most of glitches and idiosyncrasies have been worked out. You can get a vehicle history report using the truck’s Vehicle Identification Number. This will tell you if the truck has been in any accidents or had recalls. Many dealerships include these reports with the sales documents.

Backed by warranty

Besides checking a car’s history report, another thing you can do for peace of mind is to go with a certified pre-owned model. The Chevrolet Certified Pre-Owned Program includes used cars and trucks that have passed inspections and have been brought back up to factory standards. CPOs come with limited warranties and usually have low mileage. They are often leased vehicles that have had regular, required maintenance at the dealership.
