7 Long-Lasting Trucks that Hold Their Value

If you need a truck for your daily commute, choosing the right truck will ensure your investment is a smart one! Consider these reliable picks: 

2011 Toyota Tacoma

This truck maintains a strong resale value and is tough enough to be a light work truck and comfortable enough for your daily commute. It earned 94 out of a hundred to be named one of J.D. Power’s Best Resale value picks. With proper maintenance, the 2011 Tacoma can last for 300,000+ miles. 

2015 Dodge Ram 1500

The 2015 Ram took home many industry awards, including being named one of the year’s top 15 family vehicles. If it’s a long-lasting truck you want, the Ram 1500 will not disappoint. Take care of your truck, and it will take care of you to the tune of 300,000 miles without the need for a major repair. That’s one of the many reasons they do so well on the resale market. 

2015 Toyota Tundra

When this truck rolled into the dealerships, it came as a J.D. Power’s Best Resale pick with a score of 97 out of 100. It also scored “Great” for reliability, and that has certainly proven to be true. Drivers can enjoy the 381 HP V8 engine for 300,000+ miles. There’s even a 2007 model of this truck available with more than a million miles on the odometer!

2011 Chevrolet Avalanche

Want a truck that hauls around your family as well as a payload of more than 1,200 pounds? The 2011 Chevrolet Avalanche is it! The full-size crew cab can seat six people and still has a large bed. Like the other trucks that made this list, the 2011 Chevy Avalanche can easily last up to 300,000 miles with proper care. 

2014 Ford F-150

Long-lasting performance and excellent resale value are only the beginning of what this truck has to offer. That’s why it’s not even a little surprising that the Ford F-series was the best-selling vehicle in the country. That was good news for Ford then, and it’s good news for you now. Since nearly 750,000 units were sold, you’ll have no problem finding a 2014 Ford F-150 for your own driveway. 

2014 Chevrolet Silverado

The current value of a 2014 Chevy Silverado is up to $28,000 if the truck is in excellent condition. When you consider they started at about $35,000 when new, that’s an excellent resale value. So how long can you expect to keep this truck on the road? Change that oil, and it will keep you rolling for 200,000+ miles. 

2012 Nissan Frontier

This is a great option if you’re looking for a reliable, long-lasting truck at a budget-friendly price. Depending on the condition, you can find a good deal for around $10,000.  The 2012 Nissan earned the top spot in the Autobytel and AutoPacific’s Customer Vehicle Satisfaction survey. Drivers loved it then, and you’ll love it now!
