Popular Brands to Check Out
Ram, Chevy, and GMC all have strong truck product lines, available used through Rick Hendrick Buick GMC Duluth. From Ram, we often have the versatile Ram 1500 and the appropriately titled Ram Heavy Duty available. Every used Ram model is equipped with one of a selection of capable engine options, from the economical and lightweight Pentastar V6 to the staggeringly powerful Cummins turbo-diesel. The Ram 2500 is meant to perform more substantial work than its lighter-duty counterpart and, as such, is noticeably beefed up. The Ram 2500 offers prodigious payload and towing capacities, especially when propelled by a Cummins turbo-diesel engine.
While the powertrains of the Ram 2500 are all business, their interiors offer surprising comfort. Some used models even have a 12-inch touchscreen for infotainment, while voice recognition-powered controls are common. Premium audio options were also available on late model Ram 2500s. At our dealership, we frequently have used work trucks available, some already upfitted to perform certain tasks. So even if you are looking for something specific, keep an eye on our website or ask our team to keep an eye out for you.
Back on the personal side, GMC has had a strong truck lineup for quite some time. The Canyon, Sierra 1500, and Sierra HD all pack significant amounts of utility, accompanied by no small amount of style. The smallest in this line of trucks is the Canyon, a moderately sized pickup with classically sturdy lines for those who don’t require the size, capacity, or footprint of the larger full-size pickups.
The Canyon is similar to the smaller trucks of old in size, being much easier to fit into a parking spot while still managing to maintain a proper payload and towing capacity. What largely separates it from the now-classic pickups of similar size is its power and efficiency. The late-model Canyon has four-cylinder, V6, and diesel engine options. All of these engines provide excellent efficiency and power, but allow you to find a used truck that will strike the perfect balance between the two for your needs.
The Sierra 1500 and Sierra 3500HD form the upper end of the GMC truck lineup. The Sierra, by itself, is a large and sturdy full-size pickup, available with a selection of stalwart Chevy small-block V8 engines. These provide enough power to get the beast rolling in a hurry when lightly loaded and enough torque to keep the machine trucking when towing heavy loads.
The ability to tow over two and a half times its own curb weight may make the Sierra 1500 sound impressive, but the Sierra 3500HD is not called Heavy Duty for nothing. Newer used models equipped with the 6.6-liter turbo-diesel produce over 900 lb-ft of torque, meaning that with the right axle specified, the 3500HD can handily tow nearly anything you can hitch to it.
The Chevrolet Colorado and Silverado are largely similar to the GMC Canyon and Sierra but are often easier to find on the used market and a bit less expensive. If the upscale looks of the GMC trucks are not your style, then the more rough-and-ready Chevy variants might be more your style. The Silverado is an especially hot item, with immense personalization options from the factory, making almost all of them just slightly unique.
The capabilities that all of these truck brands offer are incredibly impressive, but that simply reinforces the fact that there is a solid used truck at Rick Hendrick Buick GMC Duluth for just about everyone. Whichever truck you choose, we are sure that it will exceed your expectations.
Should I Buy a Used or a Certified Pre-Owned Truck?
Deciding whether to go with a used truck or a Certified Pre-Owned model is an important decision that may not be as simple as it seems. If you are not familiar with the term, “Certified Pre-Owned” refers to vehicles sold with extended factory warranties and support. These warranties are guaranteed by the manufacturer rather than the dealer and are only offered on vehicles that meet exacting standards. Essentially speaking, Certified Pre-Owned trucks are like-new trucks, including warranty, that are sold at prices similar to standard used trucks.
By their nature, Certified Pre-Owned vehicles tend to be quite new and with few miles on the clock, further making them similar in quality to new vehicles. For those who are looking to save money on an extremely dependable vehicle, a Certified Pre-Owned truck is an excellent option. The main case where Certified Pre-Owned trucks would not be ideal is when one is looking to purchase a less expensive used vehicle or keep it for the long term. When the warranty does eventually run out, even a Certified Pre-Owned truck would just be a used truck in excellent condition. In short, Certified Pre-Owned trucks offer what is to many a happy medium between used and new.
