There are many things to take into consideration when searching for a truck – towing capability, payload, trailering, safety, and more. You will also need to make the decision of browsing used Ford trucks or new models. Purchasing a new model is always desirable but if you’re looking to save money without compromising quality, visit Folsom Lake Ford to test drive our previously owned selection.

Here are five of the many reasons that we recommend a used Ford truck:

1. Save Money

Did you know that new models lose up to 30 percent of their value in the first year of ownership? By choosing a used model, you will dodge some or all of this depreciation. As a result, you will save on annual registration costs and monthly insurance premiums.

2. Updated Tech for Less

If you love safety and entertainment technology on new models, you may get it for less on a Ford F-150 that’s just a few years old with low mileage. Lane keeping assist, trailer monitoring, and Apple CarPlay® are a few of the features we recommend exploring in used models.

3. Quality

Buying used may make some drivers weary. Not to worry! The used trucks at our Ford dealerships in northern California are inspected for quality upon arrival to ensure the safety of our customers.

4. Certified Pre-Owned Option

If you are seeking additional peace of mind, ask our California Ford dealers about our certified pre-owned (CPO) selection. These models go under rigorous inspection and must meet standards set by the make to be qualified for the CPO program.

5. Variety

Choosing to go with a pre-owned vehicle provides you with many options to select from, as our inventory carries many makes and models at all times. Whether you need heavy or light duty, fuel efficiency, or trailering capability, there’s a model for you.

We invite you to visit Folsom Lake Ford to explore available trucks and work with one of our team members to find the one that fits your needs best. See you soon!
