If you’re buying a used truck, it’s important to be on the lookout for great deals, durability, and long-lasting performance. Ford has a great range of trucks that have stood the test of time and remained fantastic buys in todays’ market—here’s our pick of the top seven used Ford pickups for your next test drive.
7. 2013 F-250 Super Duty Platinum
If you’re looking for serious power and style, the 2013 F-250 Super Duty Platinum is all that and more. Other trimlines offer a more rugged interior at a lower price point, but the platinum rides like a limousine and pulls like a workhorse. Or rather, like 385 workhorses that can tow 18,500 pounds.
6. 2011 Ford Ranger
The second-to-last production year for the Ford Ranger was 2011, and it was a great year in their line. For those looking for a smaller, inexpensive truck with a surprising amount of haul and great responsiveness, this is the pickup for you. Look for the 4.0L, six-cylinder version for the most bang for your buck.
5. 2012 Ford F-150
Coming in a little lighter than the F-250, but with enough strength to get just about any job done, the 2012 F-150 was known for the risky step of moving to an aluminum frame that more than paid off in terms of performance. In fact, dropping 700 pounds of weight from the steel frame gave this model a huge step up from the 2011, model along with the new tech goodies that are included.
4. 2012 Ford F-350 Super Duty
That same year, Ford hit another home run with the 2012 F-350 Super Duty. With best-in-class towing and payload capacity and a greatly appreciated improvement in efficiency on the job site and down the highway, this heavy-hitting workhorse was designed to get the job done and have energy to spare when it’s done.
3. 2014 Ford F-250 Diesel
The F-250 already made the list once, but the 2014 model pulls out a new standard for power and comfort when you opt for a diesel engine on this beast of a pickup. The V8 engine rips out an incredible 400 horsepower and 800 ft-lb of torque with trimlines that bridge the spectrum from on-site hauler to luxurious highway high-roller.
2. 2015 Ford F-150
In the same vein, the 2015 model of the F-150 gives a more modern interior with more modern gadgets and safety features, more power, and more comfort for all the time you’ll be spending in it—and trust us, you’ll want to. It received the Kelley Blue Book Best Buy Award, and since the model year looks a lot closer to today’s, you’ll notice some very modern features on the inside.
1. 2010 Ford F-150 SVT Raptor 6.2L
Topping our list with all the power you’d expect in the F-Series line and full points for style to boot, the 2010 Ford F-150 SVT Raptor is an absolute beast of a machine when you drop a 6.2L engine in it. Built for dirt roads and heavy loads, the Raptor is a great choice for getting you anywhere you need to go and making an entrance once you get there.
