Used Work Truck

If you are in need of a good used work truck, the Ford F150 and the Nissan Titan are probably the two best you can purchase. Here's a look at what each of these trucks can offer.

Ford F150
The Ford F150 is probably the top of the line when it comes to new and used work trucks. The F150 has been the most popular and most purchased full-size work truck for more than 30 years. Those who own these vehicles love their versatility and their incredible performance on the road. Their off-road performance is rarely matched by other trucks. It brags of a far more comfortable riding experience than it biggest competitor, the Nissan Titan. An F150 is dependable and has an extremely comfortable inside cab for both the driver and passengers. Generally used as a heavy-duty workhorse, this truck comes in a variety of different body configurations and offers both a V6 and V8 engine.

The reliable F150 is also the only used truck to actually receive the NHTSA's five star rating for the extreme frontal crash safety. The comfort, versatility, dependability, towing power and more keeps this truck on top.

Nissan Titan
The second best used work truck is the Nissan Titan. Most people who review the trucks agree that the Titan is probably the first full-sized work truck that comes as close to giving the F150. a run for the money. To some extent, the Titan beats the F150 with the small edge it has with towing capacity and power that comes from its 5.6 liter V8 engine. The Titan brags that it has a lot more power than the F150.

Those who have purchased the Titan will admit that it does not have as smooth a ride as any F150 they have ridden in. Both of these trucks, however, do have pretty much the same resale value.

If you are looking for a good used truck for your business, either one of these trucks might be a perfect fit for you. When trying to decide between the two, consider the prices of replacement parts in your decision. Make sure you are allowed to test drive the truck, no matter which one it is, and also ask if you can have the truck checked out by your mechanic before committing to purchasing it.
