When it comes right down to it, whether you buy new or a used truck usually boils down to how much money you want to spend. However, there are other factors to take into account. We have listed a few of them for you to consider.

The advantages of buying a new truck:

  • You can order the specifications you want and receive the exact options desired.
  • You receive full factory warranties and can purchase extended warranties if preferred.
  • Maintenance costs are, by and large, minor.
  • Reliability is usually ensured.
  • Downtime, as a rule, is minimal.

The disadvantages of buy a new truck:

  • The purchase cost of a new truck is high.
  • First year depreciation of the vehicle can be very high.
  • New trucks typically have to be ordered and the delivery time can be lengthy.
  • Replacement parts, if needed, are expensive.
  • Mechanics can lack knowledge of newer electronic technology.
  • Higher insurance costs.

The advantages of buying a used truck:

  • The purchase cost of a used truck is ordinarily much lower.
  • Used trucks are readily available and the selection is ample.

  • Older technology can sometimes be easier to diagnose and cheaper to repair.
  • Replacement parts are more accessible and less expensive.
  • If you are exporting the truck, the import duties can be much lower.
