When looking for a used truck, a few important factors come into play when choosing which one is right for you. You will want to look at mileage, owner history, towing capabilities, durability, engine specs, technology upgrades, and more, but you don’t have to sacrifice style in order to get a reliable truck. We’ve picked out the best used trucks with the best body styles that were built to last and look good along the way.

6. DODGE RAM 1500

The Dodge Ram 1500 comes in a variety of trim levels from a classic work truck to a more luxurious ride. The 2016 lineup included the addition of the adventurous Rebel model, which featured a unique grille, 33-inch tires, skid plates, two tow hooks, and a black off-road front bumper so you can hit the backroad terrain in style. The 2018 Dodge Ram 1500 lineup introduced a whole new level of luxury with the Limited Tungsten edition. The Ram 1500 Limited Tungsten features a sport performance hood, platinum chrome accents and badging, body-color door handles and RAM tailgate lettering, 20-inch Satin Carbon aluminum wheels, black bezel sport projector headlights, and a Frost/Indigo leather interior. Whether you choose adventure or luxury, you will stand out with a late-model used Dodge Ram 1500.

5. FORD F-150

The Ford F-150 has been the best-selling truck in America for more than 40 years and truly lives up to the “Built Ford Tough” slogan. With the frequent improvements and upgrades, Ford stays ahead of the game in more ways than one. In 2015, Ford introduced an all-new aluminum body style that made the F-150 lighter while still remaining as durable as ever. The introduction of the F-150 Raptor provided us with a barely legal performance truck that boasts impressive speeds, and its looks have just gotten sweeter with time. From a visual standpoint, the Raptor features a bold design with an exposed dual exhaust, heavy duty tires, large Ford badging on the grille and tailgate, accent grille lighting and more. The bold look of the F-150 is recognizable everywhere, and with a variety of trim levels from which to choose, you can find a price range and features that are right for you.


The Chevy Silverado 1500 is available in a variety of trim levels from a basic work truck to a premium luxurious package. New to the 2018 lineup were three special edition packages for a distinctive design upgrade: Redline Edition, Special Ops Edition, and Black Out Edition. The Redline Edition is available on the LT Z71 double cab and LTZ Z71 crew cab. Features include 20-inch black wheels with red accents, black Silverado badging with a red outline, red row hooks, a spray-in bed-liner, off-road assist steps, black bowties, black mirror caps, a black grille, a black headline trim and body color front/rear bumpers. The Black Ops edition includes Naval inspired graphics, 20-inch black aluminum wheels, deep-tinted windows, black bowties, sport assist steps, all-terrain tires, and a spray-in bed-liner. For a blacked-out look, the Black Out edition features a bold image with all-black accents: black 20-inch wheels, black Chevy bowtie emblems, black grille, and deep-tinted windows. Any of these special edition models will give you a unique look that will stand out against the rest.

3. GMC SIERRA 1500

The 2016 GMC Sierra 1500 received a bolder grille design than previous models. Each trim features a slightly different grille to enhance the look of each trim model. Other new design features for the 2016 model included new LED headlights, LED fog lights, LED headlights and available LED tail lights. Newer models offer more standard features and interior upgrades but the exterior design remains the same. The GMC Sierra 1500 design is similar to the Chevy Silverado 1500s design but has a slightly higher starting price.


The Nissan Titan got a style upgrade in 2017 that completely redesigned Nissan’s previous full-size trucks. This new design featured a bolder grille, bolder accents, larger headlights, and a larger frame overall. The 2018 Nissan Titan received more style upgrades with the new addition of the Midnight Edition to the SV and SL models. This all-black themed package features a black accented grille, dark headlights, a black side mirror, black badging, and 20-inch Midnight Edition wheels. Whether you want a base model with fewer features or a special edition model, you will feel and look confident behind the wheel of a used Nissan Titan.


While the Toyota Tundra is one of the priciest used trucks on this list, the Tundra is known for its durability and reliability. The 2018 model features a new look with great exterior upgrades. Included in the upgrades are a slightly revised front fascia, a new mesh grille, a TRD Sport trim with a hood scoop, and 20-inch alloy wheels. These upgrades are a big deal for the Tundra since its last design revision took place with the 2014 model.
