Is Buying a Pre-Owned Ford F-150 a Smart Choice?
The F-150 is one of the most popular trucks of the Ford F-series and bas been one of the best selling trucks in America for decades. You’d be hard pressed to not find them on the roads of every city — Ford trucks utterly dominate the market, outperforming the next biggest makers such as Chevrolet and GMC on sales.
What makes the truck so special though? The F-150 brings together exceptional durability, power, utility, luxury, and safety together in a fantastically engineered package. Let’s look at what the F-150 has to offer and why you should consider buying one pre-owned from the Zeck Ford dealership!
Why the Ford F-150?
Ford have decades upon decades of experience as a car and truck manufacturer, making them one of the most well-known vehicle brands not just in America, but worldwide. Since the launch of the F-series of trucks in the 1970s, Ford has retained all of the practicality of the first trucks but improved and built upon this legacy with modern technology, design, and manufacturing.
The Ford F-150 is a beautiful and bold truck. It feels and looks masculine but doesn’t cut out elegance either. It has a massive bed with exterior lighting, and it has a variety of wheel sizes and designs available. The truck can tow between 5,000 and 12,100 pounds depending on your trim options, making it an exceptional machine for moving large and heavy objects in a trailer or on its bed.
Ford doesn’t cut the horsepower either; the high-output 3.5L EcoBoost engine is capable of kicking out 450 horsepower and 510 pounds per foot of torque. With a wide range of other engines with similar power up for grabs, it’s no wonder that Ford trucks are associated with great power.
The truck itself is constructed from military grade materials. The body is an aluminum alloy, designed and produced to be tougher than the bodies of other trucks of its class. It also has a rock solid frame of high-strength steel that’s lighter than any of its previous generations too.
Include the beautiful and spacious interior and all the technology and software and the F-150 enters the luxury truck market swinging. You can expect 360-degree camera views of surroundings, collision and blind spot detection tech, keyless ignition, 4WD, hill descent control, and many more features.
Maximum Value for Money
Modern trucks are built to last and last much longer than the trucks of the past. Ford F-150s that have rolled off the line today will be just as effective in 5 to 10 years’ time because Ford builds its vehicles tough and to an extremely high standard. There’s no cutting corners when it comes to production.
This makes buying a pre-owned F-150 a great option if you’re looking to buy one at a discount. Many people worry that buying second hand must mean that the previous owner had issues with the vehicle and wanted to get rid of it — but that’s not usually the case! Many people simply trade in old vehicles for a discount on new ones. On top of that, certified dealerships have their trucks rigorously tested and repaired to meet a high standard — and we’ll happily show you the vehicle history reports and modifications if you still have any doubts about the quality you’re getting.
When it comes to buying pre-owned, the big benefit is the drop in price. It only takes a couple of years for a vehicle to plummet in price, meaning you could be saving thousands if not tens of thousands on your purchase — all for a vehicle likely to be in the same shape the day it was made! And if that’s not enough, you’ll also save money through a reduction in taxes (depending on your state) and through lower insurance costs. All that extra money saved means you could invest in something nice to tow (perhaps a boat or new trailer).
