Find used cars in Clarksville with CarsDirect. Located along the Tennessee-Kentucky state line, the city of Clarksville is the fifth largest city in Tennessee state, with over 119,000 residents as of 2008 according to population estimates. This historical city, also called “The Queen City” or “Gateway to the New South,” was reportedly named after General George Rogers Clark, brother of famous explorer William Clark and a hero of the American Revolutionary War.
The city of Clarksville encompasses parts of several counties in both Tennessee and Kentucky. Local U.S. military installations make up some of the local population of this urban center. Major highways take travelers in and out of the Clarksville area. The somewhat remote nature of Clarksville, many miles west of the borders with Atlantic coastal states Virginia and North Carolina, makes a difference in what kinds of used cars and trucks are available in this Tennessee-Kentucky community. The personal vehicles that Clarksville residents rely on must be able to navigate the sometimes mountainous and remote roadways in between Clarksville and major population areas like Louisville, KY or population centers closer to the Atlantic Coast.
