Best Deals in Trucks in 2019

By mlemelin - March 27, 2018

In an era of electric automobiles and eco-friendly options, it would seem like the truck would have lost its place in the market. However, to put it bluntly, there ain’t nothing like a pickup. It’s impossible to replace the torque, towing capacity, sheer power, and overall utility of the uniquely American automotive option. And with technology in the industry far exceeding our expectations daily, a pickup is not the gas-guzzling monster it used to be.

So, what’s the right ride for you? Whether it’s the iconic Ford F-150, Dodge Ram, GMC Sierra, or Chevy Silverado, or the new challengers like the Nissan Titan or Toyota Tacoma, it’s easier than you might think to find the best 2018 pickup at the best price.

TRIED AND TRUE AMERICAN ICONS

Ford is offering its F-150 SuperCrew XL with a 2.7-liter V6 boasting 325 horsepower and 400 pound-feet of torque for with an amazing 2.9% financing for 60 months (compared to 5.9 percent for seven years offered on most other models). And 26 mpg on the highway (with rear-wheel drive) will satiate the most eco of appetites. Want lower financing options? Chevy has been offering 0% financing for the Silverado 1500 Double Cab at dealerships across the US. The most popular of the Silverado models seats six in comfort. Add in rear doors and a 6.5-foot bed, plus a fuel-saving setup on the LT and LTZ’s drivetrain package, Chevy is eager to compete for your pickup loyalties, and may well have the best combination of affordability and dependability. You could do worse than to “find new roads” in your Silverado.

GMC Sierra

Got a haul to haul? The GMC Sierra is the ultimate mix of utility and style, able to tow up to 12,500 pounds while boasting a quiet, sleek design. Just like the Silverado, GMC dealerships are offering 0% financing for 72 months. Alternatively, Dodge’s six-year, 0% financing offer on the Ram Lone Star 4×4 is a tantalizing offer to get you behind the wheel of the old-school manufacturer’s flagship pickup. With specs that rival any in its class, and styled with chrome bumpers, a billet grille design, fog lights, and chrome-clad 20” aluminum wheels, you’ll be the envy of any pickup aficionado, albeit with less strain put on your wallet.

FOREIGN COMPETITORS WORTH THEIR WEIGHT IN TORQUE

Toyota’s Tacoma is kind of the new kid on the block in the pickup market, but at 0% financing for 72 months, they mean business. The Tacoma perfectly marries off-road abilities with city style, so whether you’re hauling up to the cabin or speeding in to town for a meeting, the Tacoma and Toyota’s exceptional pricing promise the perfect ride.

NISSAN TITAN

Nissan’s Titan also boasts a great deal, offering the 2017 Titan with 0% financing over 72 months, but they’ve sweetened the deal with up to $3,190 in additional savings, including $1,000 on the Single Cab or King Cab Titan and $2,190 on the Titan Chrome Package. A standard V8 engine making 390 horsepower and 394 pound-feet of torque make this a tough deal to beat, and Nissan a force to reckon with in the pickup marketplace.
