The Four Best Truck Deals For Seniors Right Now
There are a lot of deals currently available on some of the most popular pickup truck models.
Pickup trucks are some of the most popular vehicles in the United States. They are rugged, durable, comfortable and surprisingly luxurious on the inside, making them perfect for older drivers.
Whether you are in the market for a compact truck, mid size truck or full size truck, dealers have incentives that make right now a perfect time to start looking for an upgrade, ideal for seniors on a fixed budget.
The Ford F150 is the most popular truck in the United States and there are several good reasons for that. With a starting MSRP of only $28,495 this is one of the most affordable full size pickups on the market.
Ask anyone who owns a Ford F150 and they’re likely to tell you just how much they love it. This truck has developed a fierce following of loyal enthusiasts because of it’s high quality build, strong overall performance and classic design. Right now Ford has released a special financing incentive of 0% interest for 72 months on all new F150 purchases. You can also get up to $4,750 cash back if you opt to buy a 2019 model instead of a 2020 model which brings the price to under $24,000.
Dodge Ram 1500
The basic model of this truck is available for $31,895 while the Classic model is only $28,200. In 2019, Dodge Ram 1500 won the status of MotorTrend Truck of the Year. Its luxurious cabin and smooth driving dynamics never disappoint the driver. Another reason why people like this light-duty pickup is that it offers amazing fuel economy.
The basic model has the ability to produce 305 horsepower with the 3.6-L V6 engine. You can also enjoy 395 horsepower with the Hemi V8 engine. The best thing about this model is that it allows you to tow up to 12,750 pounds. And if we talk about the EcoDiesel Engine, it can produce 260 horsepower.
You’d be able to get 26 mpg average with a V6 engine. And if you want to enjoy better fuel efficiency, you must consider using the EcoDiesel engine. Without any doubt, the V8-equipped models offer amazing power but you can only get 23 mpg fuel average from these vehicles. If you value fuel economy or are an environmentally conscious person, then the EcoDiesel option is the right fit for you.
You can enjoy a very spacious cabin with 2020 Ram 1500. The most comfortable feature in this truck is that it comes with heated and ventilated reclining rear seats.
You can even get several premium features included at no extra cost with the base model. We bet you’d be impressed with the 12-inch high-resolution touch display is not a premium upgrade. Music lovers will be happy to hear the Ram 1500 offers a 900-watt Harmon Kardon sound system so you can enjoy your favorite tunes with crystal clear sound.
You can now take advantage of accident-avoidance technologies like blind-spot warning, automatic emergency braking and lane departure alert. What customers really like about this latest model is that it offers a self-parking system along with a surround-view camera
Just like the Ford F150, the Chevrolet Silverado 1500 has a loyal following of diehard fans. Many believe the current Silverado is the best model Chevrolet has ever made as it comes with a significantly improved interior cabin. With a base price of only $28,300, the 2020 Silverado is a powerful truck at an affordable price.
Chevrolet is currently offering $5,000 cash back on the Silverado 1500 Crew Cab. If you’d prefer to lease a new truck you can get the same model for only $309 per month with $1,500 due at signing. If you want to save even more money, you can get $7,500 cash back on remaining 2019 Silverado models plus 0% APR financing.
The GMC Sierra is an absolutely beautiful truck. Few other trucks can match its combination of strength and style. Right now you can get $6,000 cash back on Sierra 1500 Crew Cab Denali trim. With a base price of only $29,600, this discount can help you get a new GMC Sierra for under $24,000.
If you are looking to lease instead of buy, then GMC has an equally attractive offer for you. Right now you can lease a Sierra 1500 Double Cab 4WD SLE for only $299 per month. This model comes standard with an 8-inch touchscreen, Bose sound system, leather seats and a boatload of safety features.
GMC also has special offers on the compact GMC Canyon truck. This short cab comes with $2,750 cash back and 0% APR financing for 84 months.
Toyota’s Tacoma comes with either a four cylinder engine for better fuel economy, or a V6 engine packing plenty of punch, with 278 horsepower, and either an automatic or manual transmission. Right now, Toyota is offering some very attractive lease deals on the Tacoma, with payments as low as $169/month. The sporty TRD packages are excellent for off-roading, while two wheel drive models can pull up to 6800 pounds when towing.
Why are Truck Prices So Low?
With the economy slowing down this means that dealerships now have too many trucks sitting on their lots. They need to sell these vehicles before the 2021 models are released at the end of the year. This pressure is forcing dealers to offer special incentives and financing options to entice buyers to come to the showroom and view new trucks.
Ford, Chevrolet and GMC also know that many Americans are facing financial difficulties so they are lowering prices to make a new truck a more affordable option. This is great news for anyone who was thinking of buying a new truck but hasn’t decided on which model to get.
We recommend visiting a few different dealerships and finding the truck that meets your exact needs and specifications. First, decide whether that is an F150, Silverado or Sierra (or maybe it’s an even different truck brand).
Once you’ve decided which model of truck to get, the next step is to determine if you’d like to buy or lease. As described above, there are a number of deals available right now for purchase or lease, so you are likely to find a great bargain no matter which option you choose.
