Buying a New Truck Question

Recommended Posts

My mom wants to sell her 2001 Izuzu Trooper and my sister's 2002 Ford Escape so she can get a new car.

I said just sell my 2002 Avalanche, which would help on the money issue, and just get me a used car. So she actually told me that she wouldn't mind letting me get like an 07 or an 08 F150 or Silverado since i have been doin good so far in school which is a big improvement from the past.

The question is out of those 2 which one is better on gas, road ability, off road ability(maybe), and towing capability. If you guys have any other ideas on other cars that would be great I'm just hoping I can figure out something that is cheap on my parents and that can last me until after college.

So she actually told me that she wouldnt mind letting me to get like a 07 or an 08 F150 or silverado since ive been doin good so far in school which is a big improvement from the past.

NO!  Now go back and change the "i" between errors and have to an upper case "I".  Then we'll all be happy.   :D :D

Now, seriously, there are Ford men, GM men, and Dodge men, on here.  If you pay attention, some of them will think and proclaim that the other brands are PsOS, while they swear by theirs.

Any of them will serve you well if it has been maintained and not beat up.  Mileage will likely be comparable for similar trucks.

Look around.  Find out what appeals to you and test drive all the brands.  Then make up your own mind.

They all run good, ride good, and are solidly built.  Heck, check out Toyotas and Nissans while you are at it.

My Dad has an 08 Toyota Tundra. Its a good truck but, I do not like pulling with it. It is not as smooth as my Avalanche is and it burns gas like crazy. Not sure about a Nissan Titan.

I've towed my bass boat and lawn equipment with the Silverado and 150. Both trucks have more than enough power. Imo, Chevy trucks ride a little more smooth than Ford trucks.  Either truck would be nice but I'd go with the 08, unless it had considerable more mileage.

My problem is i only have about 10 to 15 grand saved up to spend for somthing like this.

Personally, I think the transmissions on the F-150s are better and they look better than the 07 silverados. I tend to be a Ford guy, but any american made vehicle before GM and others took billions in the bailouts is alright in my book.

Im a ford guy, so i say ford, but you can find plenty of late 00's trucks for about 10-15.

Don't get caught up in features, all you need in your truck is AC, a seat for your girl(s) and your Dog(s).
