Standard Used Chevrolet Truck Pricing Based on Year and Model

January 27, 2012
Used Chevy truck

If you are shopping for a used Chevy truck, you might find it useful to know what the average used Chevrolet truck pricing is. Of course, prices on any type of used truck will vary considerably, but there are ballpark price ranges for all types of vehicles that will give you a general idea about what you should pay for a particular make and model used truck. To that end, here are some general pricing guidelines for popular used Chevrolet pickup trucks based on year and model.

*Note - All prices are based on a base model truck which includes 2 wheel drive, regular cab, manual transmission (unless not available with a manual transmission), short bed and base standard trim level. Air conditioning is not included in the pricing unless it is part of the base model package (no in most cases). Also, no premium sound systems, wheels or other premium accessories are considered for this pricing data.

Prices are based on average pricing data information for the Southeastern United States where pickup sales are the highest in the country. Prices include MSRP pricing for the 2010 Model year (or 2009 model if 2010 information is not yet available), and average used vehicle selling prices for model years 2007, 2008 and 2009. Prices shown are prices as given by the Kelley Blue Book Pricing Guide on their website. For Suggested Retail Pricing the vehicle is considered to be in excellent condition. When determining average Private Party Selling Prices and Average Trade In Values, the condition will be considered to be good. For pricing purposes mileage on year model vehicles is as follows: 2009 - 12,000 miles, 2008 - 24,000 miles and 2007 - 36,000 miles.

The average pricing information above will not be accurate in all parts of the country and may be slightly higher or lower depending on where you purchase a similar vehicle. Pricing for any used truck will also depend on the actual condition of the vehicle, the number of miles on the odometer and your ability to negotiate a lower selling price. You should always compare at least three or four sources for any used Chevrolet truck you're thinking of buying.
