Used Pickup Trucks for Sale in Thornton, CO

A pickup truck is an ideal tool for getting work done and going out to have fun in the Denver, CO area. Depending on your particular transportation needs, you can buy a great used pickup that is a perfect tool for doing daily work duties or one that does more commercial-level hauling. If you just want one that gets good gas mileage and handles occasional bulky loads or light trailering tasks, a used mid-size pickup is a great option.

A good used pickup that is well-maintained and with relatively low miles on the odometer can give you a truly great return on your transportation investment. Pickup trucks are very popular for handling a wide variety of transportation needs, including hauling. Here is a closer look at some of the better used pickup trucks that you can find on our used lot.

Light Duty Pickups

A light-duty pickup is the classic truck that most people envision, such as a Ford F-150. The F-150 is a full-size, three-quarter-ton pickup that has either rear-wheel drive, 4X4, or both. The engines range from a relatively economic but still strong V6 to much more potent V8 motors that run on gasoline. You also can find used Ford F-150 models with a diesel engine that improves fuel economy and towing capability.

The Chevy Silverado 1500 is another popular full-size pickup that offers a regular cabin with two doors and seating for up to three or an extended cabin with four doors and a rear bench seat. Bed sizes vary between about 5- and 6-foot sizes and can hold more cargo when mated to a beefy suspension. Included engines range from a V6 to a potent V8 that run on gasoline or a turbodiesel for more towing power and longer touring range on a tank of gas.

The Ram 1500 and Toyota Tundra also are incredibly popular full-size pickups that come in many cabin, engine, and bed configurations. Good used models with low miles often have factory warranty protection in place and benefit from optional service contracts.

Mid-Size Pickups

When you want better fuel economy with a cargo bed available for occasional bulky items, a used mid-size pickup is a terrific option for daily driving in Thornton and Westminster, CO. A Ford Ranger or a Chevy Colorado are two great examples of outstanding mid-size pickups. They come with either a regular cabin and two doors and an extended cabin with four doors and a rear bench. Both offer good towing and cargo capacity and comfortable passenger accommodations.

Likewise, a used mid-size Chevy Colorado, or Toyota Tacoma pickup will do almost as much as a full-size pickup but for less initial cost and while enabling much better fuel economy. You can get any of the makes and models with a four-cylinder or V6 engine that enables a good amount of towing and cargo capacity while providing great fuel economy when compared to a full-size pickup.

Heavy-Duty Pickups Haul Huge Loads

If you want a great deal on a fully dedicated work truck that can tow and carry commercial-level loads, many good used pickups can handle the task. A Ford F-250 or an F-350 gives you a stronger chassis and suspension with a strong V8 or a diesel engine, making everything move. The same goes for a used heavy-duty Chevy Silverado HD, a Ram 2500 or 3500, and a GMC Sierra HD. All can tow much more than a standard full-size pickup while getting surprisingly good fuel economy for truly work-dedicated pickups.
