Looking for a ‘Casual Truck’
Hey y'all, hope this finds you well and in good spirits.
I’m looking to buy a truck, preferably something smaller. I do not really tow anything or have any work need for it, I just think trucks are cool and like driving them. Would yall have any recommendations? Would it be wise to purchase one, or should I just get a sedan since I have no real need for it?
Any input would be greatly appreciated, thank you!
Don't get a pickup unless you need one. it's going to cost you a lot more in gas than a sedan
If you don’t need a truck, just get a sedan. It will be “cheaper” to buy and you’ll get better fuel economy.
Just get a sedan
Welcome new member!
lots of options. If you don’t need to do work, then, yeah, look at small to mid size.
if you are thinking late model (2010 or later), or if it is your daily driver for a commute, then your search starts and ends with Tacoma. Easy. Just find the nicest one in your budget and you’re done.
If you want a little more character and don’t intend to put a lot of miles on it, I’d look for a square body (first gen) S10 with the 4 cylinder “iron duke” motor. For a little truck, it has a lot of character and will get you some appreciative nods from truck guys. Easy to work on yourself and will gain value.
I also agree with @justin-shepherd to look at a ranger. YouTuber “Sarah-n-tuned” has a great occasional series on restoring a family ranger she inherited. Could be good inspiration.
Maybe a nissan Titan
