Why so many new trucks? Daddy own a dealership?


It’s certainly not on account of feeling the need for a new truck. I think my dealership treats me pretty good on the purchase price of the new ones and I have a guy that buys my used trucks who also treats me pretty well. At the end of the day driving a new truck every year just seems to make sense.


Im the opposit, I always look for the lease returns so I don't have to pay the huge part of the depreaceation. but I also keep them till they don't work for me anymore also. I was going to sugest you tune it, my buddy did his 2017 and it went from 16. somthing to 12.somthing driving around town. one more emmision issue with mine and its getting the full meal deal also... mind you its been 3 years since I threatened it with that and there has been no issues..[emoticon]

Do late model trucks even depreciate these days? Other than the stupid high cost of tax and registration fees I’m pretty sure I could trade in every year and lose very little $.

Depreciation is affected by demand. Demand is high. Pretty sure I could sell my 2 yr old truck with 28k miles for at least as much as I paid.

Pickups haven't depreciated too badly for awhile, especially diesel pickups. That said the last year or two has been strange in that regard. Limited availability and much higher real world pricing on new trucks have really propped up older truck values. I think I could sell my 2015 for what I paid new or very close to it, and that's 7 years and 85k miles later.

My dealer offered to buy my 2020 with 15,000 miles for more $$$ than I paid for it new... BUT, I would be paying big bucks for a replacement.. I'm good for now..

I sense a lot of jealousy on this thread. If he wants a new truck every year, so what? If he didn't buy one every year and drove around in an old beater, would your life be any better because of it?

4x4ord, good luck to you. Mine is a '21, but if I found the right deal on something better, I'll be shopping too.


No jealousy but if you are dropping $70-80k USD (or candian equivlent) each year on a new truck, are you really likely to care about the fuel efficiency?

Update: See he has some weird sweetheart deal with a guy buying them off him a year old for as much as he's buying them new. Sweet deal if you can do it legally.

Almost like a Ponzi scheme waiting to see who is stuck with the highest loan payment at the bust.

I haven’t filled a Ford from dead empty, but can say my “24 gal tank” in my Chevy holds 24.4 gallons when it is bone dry aka run out of fuel. How I know is not to be discussed, lol!


I like to find out how accurate my distance to empty meter is right out of the box .... usually running it 35 km or so past 0 km to empty is about as far as I push it. This one momentarily flashed up a low fuel pressure warning at 1 km to empty. 2km further down the road the tach dropped to zero. I guess 0 km to empty means 0 km to empty.
