The Top 5 Used Pickups on Kelley Blue Book Jul 4, 2017 by James (Driver Weekly)

The five years have been good for pickup trucks. Ford launched their all-new, aluminum F-150 in 2015 while GM relaunched their midsize segment with the GMC Canyon and Chevrolet Colorado. 2016 introduced the Toyota Tacoma medium-sized trucks and the first new full-sized Nissan Titan in over a decade. While the latest models offer moderate improvements, used pickups are still solid choices for drivers who need a balance of performance, payload, and affordability. The ideal pick up for one will depend on his/her individual needs, preferences, and wants. But the following five used pickups hold top marks on Kelley Blue Book.

Ford F-150

The Ford-150 has been the best-selling pickup for over three decades. In 2015, Ford took a big gamble on a new aluminum construction. Moving to aluminum proved to a successful idea as it saved several hundred pounds in weight. Also, it contributed more to the efficiency. This pickup vehicle also has a stellar payload and towing capacities to offer along with an impressive safety rating. Ford also introduced a 2.7L EcoBoost engine for their pickup trucks that offered increased fuel economy.

Buyers were willing to test the new materials and the new powertrains on the 2015 Ford F-150, and they proved they were up to the challenge. Used buyers can now look for 2015 and 2016 F-150s and take advantage of the upgraded vehicle at a lower price point. All these features and reasons make the Ford F-150 as one of the very best options for used pickup trucks. No wonder the Ford F-150 has been Kelley Blue Book's best pickup truck for three years back-to-back.
