Trucks are expensive, many of them have a starting MSRP of around $40,000 if you’re looking for a full-size version. This is not the case with a used truck, though. A used model is significantly cheaper, thanks to depreciation!

Reliability and durability are two different things, and with some of the trucks today, durability has gone downhill.
