If you’re looking to save a little dough at the dealership, you should consider looking at used models because of their lower initial price. Unfortunately, if you don’t do your homework before buying, purchasing a pre-owned vehicle can mean that you’ll end up paying just as much as you saved upfront in maintenance and repairs as the vehicle ages.
Luckily for you, Car and Driver named both the Chevrolet Silverado 1500 and the S10 ZR2 to its list of the Best Used Trucks Under $10,000. The list honors pickups that not only perform exceptionally well across the years, but are generally affordable for pre-owned buyers.
The Silverado 1500 has been one of Chevy’s best-selling models for over two decades since its introduction in the last year of the 20th century. The first-generation Silverado, which is among the most affordable used trucks available, packs a hefty punch with a V8 engine that delivers 320 lb-ft of torque and 270 horsepower.
Chevy’s beloved — but discontinued — S10 ZR2 was a predecessor to today’s popular Colorado. The compact and capable pickup has a 4.3-liter V6 engine that’s perfect for handling weekend DIY hauls and obligatory “friend with a truck” moving responsibilities.
