Best Used Trucks Under $5,000 Mar 18, 2016 by Cedric (Driver Weekly)
The Toyota Tundra is also a great option for a used pickup from Toyota, but it will be a bit more expensive than the Tacoma, requiring you to go back to earlier model years. If you look hard enough, you can probably find a 2000 model or earlier that is less than $5,000. This full-sized pickup is known for its reliability, so you shouldn’t be too concerned about getting an older model.
If you decide you want a Nissan Frontier, you shouldn’t have a problem finding a used model for less than $5,000. In fact, many 2003 versions cost $4,500 or less. This light truck is fun and dependable. Just keep in mind that you will only see a Crew or King cab and a 6-foot truck bed, meaning there are fewer options than with some of the other top used trucks.
Pickups are designed to be reliable and durable, meaning that they are still running in good condition after fifteen years or more. Whether you are looking for an economical business investment or a tailgating platform, a used truck can be an effective choice.
