10 Used Luxurious Pickup Trucks That Are Affordable To Own Today (2)

Pickups have long been rides for working people and weekend warriors, but somewhere along the line, they have become mainstream daily drivers. Automakers responded to the off-roading craze by putting out dedicated 4x4 packages, and they've met the demand for upscale trucks by loading them with luxury. Of course, luxury comes at a price, but those willing to purchase a used pickup can have a top-end truck in their driveway for an affordable price.

Obviously, the term "affordable" means different things to different people, but in this day and age, less than $50,000 for a luxury pickup seems reasonable. It's best to look for vehicles from the last five years because true luxury in a truck is a recent phenomenon, but also due to the fact that, while most trucks will run forever, the luster can fade fairly quickly. It's entirely possible to find an affordable used pickup truck that is loaded with features that also still has that factory-fresh luxuriousness.

In order to give you the most up-to-date and accurate information possible, the data used to compile this article was sourced from various manufacturer websites and other authoritative sources, including Ram, GMC, and Car And Driver. Pickups are ranked by price from highest to most affordable.

10 Used Pickup Trucks That Are Notoriously Reliable But Crazy Cheap

Low asking prices and high reliability rating, these pickup trucks have the winning combination of being very cheap and very reliable.

10 2022 GMC Sierra 1500

Average Used Price: $49,775

10 Used Luxurious Pickup Trucks That Are Affordable To Own Today (4)

Unless the previous owner was transporting manure in the cab, a two-year-old GMC Sierra 1500 still probably has that new-truck smell. It also has that new truck performance for substantially less than when it was actually new. With an average used price under 50 grand, it's possible to get a fully loaded 4x4 Sierra 1500 that originally sold for $65,000 - $70,000.

Performance Specifications

Engine

6.2-liter V-8

Transmission

10-speed automatic

Horsepower

420 HP @ 5,600 RPM

Torque

460 pound-feet @ 4,100 RPM

Driveline

4WD

Top Speed

106 MPH (gov ltd)

Towing Capacity

13,200 pounds

Payload Capacity

2,240 pounds

It's unlikely to find a killer bargain on a 2022 Sierra 1500 Denali Ultimate, which was the top trim and sold for $82,695. It is, however, feasible to pick up a mid-to-upper trim like an AT4 or Denali for that price, and those trucks are bursting with luxury and features. It almost seems like magic that a perfectly awesome truck can be had just two years later for such an astonishing deal.

Pros

  • Great V-8 options
  • Amazing available tech
  • Tons of luxury

Cons

  • Ride is a bit rocky
  • More expensive than competitors
  • Poor fuel economy

9 2022 Ford F-150

Average Used Price: $47,592

The Ford F-150 is another great truck that can yield incredible bargains at the two-year mark. The average price of a used 2022 F-150 is artificially high as that year Ford sold a couple of really expensive trims, including the $84,495 Platinum Plus. The reality is, the hyper-priced trims that year didn't add much to justify their cost.

Performance Specifications

Engine

3.5-liter twin-turbo V-6

Transmission

10-speed automatic

Horsepower

400 HP @ 6,000 RPM

Torque

500 pound-feet @ 3,100 RPM

Driveline

4WD

0-60 MPH

5.3 seconds

Top Speed

108 MPH (gov ltd)

Towing Capacity

14,000 pounds

Payload Capacity

3,250 pounds

A 2022 F-150 Tremor or Lariat, which originally went for around $65,000, is just as equipped and capable. The Tremor is a kick-ass off-road package and the Lariat is an upscale luxury truck, both of which can be found for under $50,000 with a little bit of leg work. With all the luster and sheen of a new ride, nobody will ever know you didn't just drive it off the factory showroom.

Pros

  • Killer twin-turbo V-6
  • Delux interior
  • Impressive trim levels

Cons

  • Excessively stiff ride
  • Gobbles gas
  • Higher trims get expensive

8 2023 Chevrolet Silverado 1500

Average Used Price: $45,174

10 Used Luxurious Pickup Trucks That Are Affordable To Own Today (6)

Chevy Silverado 1500s are a little more affordable than GMC Sierra 1500s and Ford F-150s, so it is possible to get a deal on a used one a model year more recently. 2023 Silverado 1500 trucks sell on the used market for an average of $45,175, which is an amazing value. That's not the price for a stripped-down base model Work Truck, but a decked-out upper trim.

Performance Specifications

Engine

3.0-liter turbo-diesel V-6

Transmission

10-speed automatic

Horsepower

277 HP @ 3,750 RPM

Torque

460 pound-feet @ 1,500 RPM

Driveline

4WD

0-60 MPH

7.1 seconds

Top Speed

114 MPH

Towing Capacity

13,300 pounds

Payload Capacity

2,280 pounds

It will probably take a little more coin to get a top-trim 2023 Silverado 1500 High Country trim, but a well-equipped Trail Boss or RST is definitely doable for that price. Chevy, like GMC, and Ford tend to have high-dollar trims that don't add much usefulness, so the mid-trims are the best deals that don't sacrifice performance or luxury.

Pros

  • Great engine options
  • Impressive towing capacity
  • Big infotainment screen

Cons

  • Bland interiors
  • Ride could be smoother
  • No high-performance trim

The 2024 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 has some brutish trims, here is how much it costs to have a fully-loaded top spec Silverado 1500 this year.

7 2021 Toyota Tundra

Average Used Price: $41,431

10 Used Luxurious Pickup Trucks That Are Affordable To Own Today (8)

The biggest knock on the 2021 Toyota Tundra is that it is dated because it was part of the second-gen, which launched in 2007. The reality is, that's actually its biggest appeal, as the 2022 third-generation Tundras are, to put it diplomatically, an acquired taste. In 2021, the Tundra still looked cool and was just as mechanically badass as anything now.

Performance Specifications

Engine

5.7-liter V-8

Transmission

Six-speed automatic

Horsepower

381 HP @ 5,600 RPM

Torque

401 pound-feet @ 3,600 RPM

Driveline

Top Speed

108 MPH

Towing Capacity

Payload Capacity

Toyota trucks tend to hang onto their value with a death grip, so going back a few years is necessary to find a steal. A fully-equipped 2022 Tundra TRD Pro, which is one of the best 4x4s ever made, can be found on the used market for $40,000 or less, and that rocks no matter how you look at it. The reason why Toyotas retain their value is that they are bullet-proof, so one from three or four years ago is going to run like new.

Pros

  • Loaded with features
  • Off-road beast
  • Spacious interior

Cons

  • Not great on gas
  • Better off-road than on
  • Dated style

6 2021 Honda Ridgeline

Average Used Price: $36,839

10 Used Luxurious Pickup Trucks That Are Affordable To Own Today (9)

Unlike most trucks, the Honda Ridgeline wasn't built to haul, tow, or climb rocks. It's a well-built daily driver that occupies a niche for those who want a luxury ride in the shape of a pickup. If the truck isn't going to be used to tow heavy loads or go off-roading, there's literally no point in paying for those unused capabilities.

The 2021 Ridgeline was the first year of the new bolder look, and it came with lots of features and sophistication, making it one of the few luxury pickups that put more emphasis on comfort than performance. It is possible to find a 2021 Ridgeline Black Edition top-trim for around what a base-model Sport went for three years ago.

Pros

  • Great fuel economy
  • Superior road ride
  • Huge interior

Cons

  • No V-8 option
  • Not great off-road
  • Towing could be better

5 2020 Jeep Gladiator

Average Used Price: $36,120

10 Used Luxurious Pickup Trucks That Are Affordable To Own Today (11)

Unlike the Honda Ridgeline, the Jeep Gladiator was built specifically for off-road adventure. In fact, it almost looks lost on a paved surface, like it desperately needs a river to ford or a mountain to climb. It is possible to find one of these trail-rated beasts for pocket change, but even a heavily optioned, fully loaded version is affordable.

Performance Specifications

Engine

3.6-liter V-6

Transmission

Six-speed manual

Horsepower

285 HP @ 6,400 RPM

Torque

260 pound-feet @ 4,400 RPM

Driveline

4WD

0-60 MPH

7.2 seconds

Top Speed

97 MPH

Towing Capacity

7,650 pounds

Payload Capacity

1,700 pounds

A 2020 Gladiator started at just $35,040, and the average used price of $36,120 is obviously higher than that four years later. There is a perfectly reasonable explanation for this that doesn't involve Gladiators appreciating value. The basic deal is, that people who bought these 4x4s went for the top trims and optioned the hell out of them. Getting a lightly used 2020 Gladiator with every bell and whistle for 36k or less is the best deal in off-roading history.

Pros

  • Serious off-road capabilities
  • Significant towing
  • Versatile utility vehicle

Cons

  • No diesel or V-8 engines
  • More expensive than competitors
  • Lack of configurations

4 2023 Ford Ranger

Average Used Price: $35,265

10 Used Luxurious Pickup Trucks That Are Affordable To Own Today (13)

The 2023 Ford Ranger was already priced right and came loaded with features, so picking one up on the used market will net an incredibly affordable luxury mid-size pickup. Realistically, the rebooted Ranger exists somewhere between mid-size and full-size, so there is no feeling of inadequacy in choosing one over an F-150.

Performance Specifications

Engine

2.3-liter turbocharged I-4

Transmission

10-speed automatic

Horsepower

270 HP @ 5,500 RPM

Torque

310 pound-feet @ 3,000 RPM

Driveline

4WD

0-60 MPH

6.5 seconds

Top Speed

110 MPH

Towing Capacity

7,500 pounds

Payload Capacity

1,860 pounds

The Ranger is also an incredibly versatile truck that has great hauling and towing for its class, but also rocks the dusty trails or serves as a reasonable family ride. In addition to capable off-road packages, a fully loaded 2023 Ranger comes with luxury features like leather accents and heated seats, all of which can be snagged for around $35,000.

Pros

  • Smooth powertrain
  • Great off-roader
  • Good towing

Cons

  • No engine options
  • No Raptor trim
  • Interior lacks style

3 2020 Nissan Titan

Average Used Price: $34,858

10 Used Luxurious Pickup Trucks That Are Affordable To Own Today (14)

The Nissan Titan is the best truck that nobody knows about. With aggressive styling, a powerful V-8, and better-than-average capabilities, it's a great full-size truck that deserves more love. A 2020 Nissan, with all the available upgrades, represents one of the best deals for a luxury truck with an average price of $34,858.

Performance Specifications

Engine

5.6-liter V-8

Transmission

Nine-speed automatic

Horsepower

400 HP @ 5,800 RPM

Torque

413 pound-feet @ 4,000 RPM

Driveline

4WD

0-60 MPH

7.7 seconds

Top Speed

112 MPH

Towing Capacity

9,660 pounds

Payload Capacity

1,696 pounds

It might even be possible to find a highly optioned Titan XD one-ton truck for this attractive pricing. The Platinum Reserve was the top trim in 2020, which would probably be a bit more, but the off-road Pro-4X package will definitely come at around $35k, and promises an amazing ride on any surface.

Pros

  • Luxe interior
  • Quiet ride
  • Multiple configurations

Cons

  • Poor towing capacity
  • No engine options
  • Stiff ride

2 2019 Toyota Tacoma

Average Used Price: $34,619

10 Used Luxurious Pickup Trucks That Are Affordable To Own Today (15)

A Toyota Tacoma TRD Pro, from any model year, is one of, if not the best mid-size off-road trucks of all time. It's something that virtually any 4x4 enthusiast can afford if they are willing to go back five years and grab a 2019. Thanks to the unbelievable quality of Toyota trucks, a 2019 is still in its infancy and has decades to mature.

Performance Specifications

Engine

3.5-liter V-6

Transmission

Six-speed manual

Horsepower

278 HP @ 6,000 RPM

Torque

265 pound-feet @ 4,600 RPM

Driveline

4WD

0-60 MPH

7.7 seconds

Top Speed

113 MPH

Towing Capacity

6,800 pounds

Payload Capacity

1,440 pounds

The 2019 Tacoma TRD Pro came with every possible option and feature, listing for around $44,000. It's actually quite easy to find one of these thrilling 4x4s on the used market for $34,000 or less. The other brilliant thing about the 2019 is that it is a pre-fourth generation, meaning it doesn't have the weird styling that has also cursed the latest Toyota Tundra.

Pros

  • Aggressive styling
  • Built for off-roading
  • Tough as nails

Cons

  • Cabin is a bit cramped
  • Automatic transmission is awful
  • Not a heavy hauler

1 2020 Ram 1500

Average Used Price: $33,924

10 Used Luxurious Pickup Trucks That Are Affordable To Own Today (17)

The Ram 1500 is the most luxurious truck ever built, with upscale features, as well as fit and finish. It has the smoothest ride of any pickup, which drives great both on and off the road. The Ram doesn't sacrifice power or capabilities for this luxury, which is on par with a high-end SUV. With a 5.7-liter Hemi V-8, a Ram makes for a quick street ride that can haul and tow with the best of them.

Performance Specifications

Engine

5.7-liter Hemi V-8

Transmission

Eight-speed automatic

Horsepower

395 HP @ 5,600 RPM

Torque

410 pound-feet @ 3,950 RPM

Driveline

RWD

0-60 MPH

5.9 seconds

Top Speed

105 MPH

Towing Capacity

12,750 pounds

Payload Capacity

2,302 pounds

In what must seem like a typo, a well-equipped 2020 Ram 1500 can be found used for just $33,000, or maybe less. This is by far the best luxury-to-affordability ratio in the entire truck segment. Ram trucks are amazingly well-built, and the Chrysler Hemi engine will run forever, so there should be no concerns about buying a 2020 model. On top of being a great value, the 2020 Ram 1500 has the potential to become a prized collectible as the Hemi V-8 is being retired.

Pros

  • Like a high-end luxury SUV
  • Smoothest ride in class
  • Amazing engine options

Cons

  • Tows less than competitors
  • Not gas pump-friendly
  • Slightly more expensive than competitors
  • Luxury Cars
  • pickup trucks
