Not all drives are equal. Some are straightforward––a simple commute, a trip to the store, and other day-to-day excursions. Others, however, are not so straightforward and may find you braving intense terrain, carrying large loads, and even hauling a trailer behind your vehicle. No ordinary car will do when you find yourself in this kind of driving situation. If you're looking to drive at a higher level, you're in the market for a truck. You may agree with that statement but argue that the price tag of a truck is enough to keep it from becoming a reality. However, as a used truck dealer near DeWitt, we can personally attest to the fact that a used truck has tremendous value.
When you hear "used truck," you may picture an old pickup on its last legs, covered in dirt, with crank windows and a cassette player. We love the retro truck look as much as anyone else, but that's not the kind of used truck we're looking to sell you. Pauli Ford helps those in and around DeWitt find great used trucks; many of our pre-owned models are in good-as-new shape, are from recent model years, and still come at a reduced price. A used truck is the best way to get the high-quality vehicle you need while still enjoying the low price you want.
What kinds of trucks do we sell? All kinds! But we won't leave you hanging there. There are three main truck categories, all of which can be found in our lot: midsize, full-size, and heavy-duty. All three truck categories have a strong market, and it's not about one type being better than another; it's simply about one type being the best fit for you. If you don't know which type of truck you need, let the team here at Pauli Ford help you decide.
Midsize trucks are perfect for those looking for a truck well-suited to domestic life in DeWitt; but the more active side of domestic life. Midsize trucks are perfect for DIY projects, camping trips, and moderate amounts of towing. They can do all of this and still fit into the driveway or even the garage. A midsize model doesn't take up too much space, and it's not too much of a hassle to park in urban and suburban areas, but it still gives you all the benefits of a pickup truck.
If you're looking to go above the entry-level, you'll want to move up the ladder to a full-size truck. The full-size category is where things get really exciting since you'll be looking at an inventory of stronger trucks suitable for a variety of applications. While some trucks focus so much on performance that they are better suited to commercial use than domestic life, full-size trucks bridge the gap. They provide the perfect amount of strength to handle many jobs while still being appropriate for suburban driving. Most full-size trucks have a variety of configurations and options to focus on your priorities; with variants dedicated to off-roading, towing, luxury, and more, you can choose a full-size truck that satisfies your priorities.
If your priorities are work-oriented, you may be looking for a heavy-duty truck. Most trucks offer two heavy-duty models: a three-quarter-ton (250 or 2500) and a one-ton (350 or 3500). The lower-level heavy-duty models offer more strength than a full-size truck but might still be seen in the suburbs; they are a perfect fit for independent contractors who need to bridge the gap between work and home. The higher-level heavy-duty models, however, are built to handle the toughest jobs. Because of this, they lean more towards commercial use or towing massive campers and large boats.
There are a lot of great trucks out there, covering all three of the categories we described above. However, there are two models in particular that we would like to point out: the used Ford F-150 and Chevy Silverado.
Fords are what we do best here at Pauli Ford, and the F-150 is what Ford does best. This truck has earned the title of America's Favorite Truck year after year and continues to be a fan favorite. The F-150 is a fantastic pickup and offers the highest specs of any truck in its segment. It provides a great interior with scalable luxury and technology features, off-roading capability, and great towing capacities. Ford also offers the F-250 and F-350 Super Duty models, which provide exceptional levels of torque and towing capacity, for DeWitt drivers seeking a heavy-duty truck. This is America's Favorite Truck for a reason, so come find out for yourself!
A pre-owned Chevy Silverado 1500 is very comparable to the F-150. It provides impressive performance specs, scalable luxury and technology features, and a variety of trim packages to maximize off-roading capability, towing, or whatever else may be important to you. Chevy's full-size model is the Silverado 1500, but you can go up the ladder to the Silverado 2500 HD and Silverado 3500 HD if you're looking for a used heavy-duty truck. The Silverado is another fan favorite that is sure to give you the ride of your life. There are a lot of great trucks out there. But you'll be hard-pressed to find two trucks better than the F-150 and the Silverado 1500.
