Trucks for Sale in Miami
Pickup trucks have a lot of curb appeal. Even if that appeal is somewhat arguably based on stereotypes, the appeal is still very real and the reported sales figures prove it.
Luckily, there is no shortage of trucks for sale in Miami, not to mention loads of used pickup trucks for sale in Miami, too.
Why Buy a Pickup Truck
The tougher question is, why ever not?
After all, buying a new or used pickup is easy to do with all the trucks for sale in Miami.
Pickup trucks are quintessentially American. They embody those true blue qualities that Americans hold dear: hardworking, determined, and motivated.
There popularity is hard to miss. Pay attention on your commute home and see how many pickup trucks pass you by.
In fact, while you’re counting the pickup trucks you encounter, tune in to your local country music radio station and see how many truck references you hear. Between old hits and contemporary chart toppers, trucks are ubiquitous in country songs.
Partly because pickup trucks are blue collar heroes. Reliable and rugged, they are the get-it-done vehicle worth singing about. But with all the new technology, bells, whistles, and enhancements constantly improving this lineup, pickup trucks have crossed the economic divide and are truly the every man’s vehicle.
Not to mention, every woman.
So far this year, women are responsible for fifteen percent of pickup truck sales, and that trend is projected to continue skywards.
With Becky Blanchard recently taking the helm as the Director of the Ram brand, expect that number to climb rapidly, particularly following the women-targeted commercial which aired in time for this year’s Kentucky Derby.
Besides, pickup trucks are fun.
Of course, so are sports cars, but the difference here is that a pickup truck is fun and capable. Not necessarily a performance-driven machine, but a task master, able to help you get your work done efficiently and, now more than ever, in serious style.
All iconic connotations and traditional gender role reversals aside, there is undisputable data evidencing the overwhelming popularity of pickup trucks. Pickup trucks accounted for one in every ten new vehicles sold in 2014.
So, now that you’re convinced, how will you choose which of the hundreds of trucks for sale in Miami is right for you?
Choosing Between New and Used Trucks
There are plenty of trucks for sale in Miami, which necessarily means there are just about as many used pickup trucks for sale in Miami.
The question is, will new or used make more sense for you?
It’s easy to expound on the virtues of a new pickup truck. You’re the first owner, therefore the truck is in pristine condition, mileage is low, or practically nonexistent, and the interior is smell and stain-free.
Financing options are a-plenty when it comes to pickup trucks for sale in Miami; however, even with low APR financing, purchase incentives, and outstanding warranty offers, sometimes a used truck makes more sense, financially.
Increasingly, used trucks, specifically certified pre-owned used trucks, come with extended coverage and warranty protection that is competitive with those tied to new purchases.
For example, the Chrysler Group Certified Pre-Owned Vehicle stamp on Ram trucks guarantees that the truck has undergone and passed a tough certification process, followed by a 125-point inspection and reconditioning process with necessary components supplied by Authentic Mopar Parts.
Drive with confidence knowing that this certification program includes a factory-backed 7-Year or 100,000-Mile Powertrain Limited Warranty, 3-Month or 3,000-Mile Maximum Care Coverage, 24-Hour Towing and Roadside Assistance, Car Rental Allowance, CARFAX Vehicle History Report, complimentary 3-month SiriusXM Satellite Radio subscription, not to mention the Chrysler-exclusive Lifetime Certified Warranty Upgrades.
That means your truck is covered for the length of your ownership.
Depending on your financial situation, buying a certified pre-owned pickup truck might be the most affordable way to go.
Either way, it’s worth exploring your options with your pickup truck dealership in Miami to determine the best deal for your driving needs.
Selecting the Best Make and Model
With all the pickup trucks for sale in Miami, choosing the right make and model can be overwhelming. The key is figuring out what you need first.
Consider how you intend to use the truck. Do you have a lot of heavy lifting to do? Tons of towing? How many passengers will you regularly travel with and need to accommodate comfortably?
Similar to assessing your financial reality when it comes to deciding whether to purchase new or used, you’ll want to evaluate what you need this truck for.
To that end, here are some award-winning Ram pickup truck models to consider, based on towing, fuel economy, and trim levels.
