If you're shopping for a quality pickup truck for your work or weekend hauling and towing needs, then you're likely facing the question of whether to buy a brand-new truck or a used one. There are certainly pros and cons to both options, so let's review some of the reasons that many drivers ultimately choose to purchase a new pickup.

Let our truck specialists assist you in choosing between new and pre-owned.

When you buy a used truck, there's a certain level of gambling involved when it comes to the vehicle's history. Sure, you can review the pickup's history report, which can tell you about certain maintenance or repairs that were conducted and if there are any signs of odometer fraud or collisions in its past. Still, a history report can only tell you so much. Whether a used truck is a one-owner vehicle or has had multiple owners, you won't be able to get a complete picture of the vehicle's past through a history report or supplied service records.
With a brand-new pickup truck, you know that there are no surprises in its history, as it has no driving history, other than a few miles tacked on during test drives since it's arrived at the dealership from the factory. For many drivers, knowing the complete history of a vehicle is invaluable, and going forward with a new pickup, you can be confident that it will continue to deliver dependable performance by ensuring that its recommended maintenance procedures are performed.
Every new truck comes backed by a factory warranty that covers the vehicle's powertrain components. A separate bumper-to-bumper warranty is also included and protects the driver from costs associated with any other issues that could crop up during the first few years and tens of thousands of miles of ownership.
While some used trucks have remaining factory warranties or can be purchased with an extended warranty for an additional cost, nothing beats the original warranty that's backed by the manufacturer! Talk to the sales associates at Steve Rayman Chevrolet to learn about the extensive warranty that comes with every new Chevrolet truck.
If you're the type of driver that has specific features, trim levels and exterior paint and cabin color combinations, then you'll likely find that buying a new pickup truck makes finding your ideal next ride much easier. When you buy a vehicle like a brand-new Chevrolet Silverado 1500 or 2500HD model, you'll have easy access to the entire range of options, from engine choices and cab styles to trim levels and available interior amenities. In contrast, seeking out that perfect used truck with all of the features you want -- and none that you don't -- might be more time-consuming; you may even have to search outside of your local area for such a vehicle.
New trucks often come with manufacturer rebates or dealership discounts that can far outweigh any savings you may be able to get off of a used truck's listed price. Used pickups often have firm prices, whereas it's not uncommon to secure a brand-new pickup with a significant discount from the manufacturer's suggested retail price (MSRP).
There's plenty to consider when deciding if a new truck or pre-owned pickup is the right choice for you.
