If you're searching for a full-size pickup truck designed to handle the toughest jobs, you might know by now that there are many options out there in Ithaca, Trumansburg, and Watkins Glen. Looking for a new truck may be part of the process, but buying used can provide even more options.

Maguire Dealerships is taking a closer look at one of the best pre-owned trucks on the market, with tips for buying a used Chevy Silverado 1500.

Buying Pre-Owned

When you're buying a pre-owned vehicle, it's important to consider exactly what you need. In the truck world, you may need something that's perfect for both home and work. Considering the needs of employees and perhaps your own family is part of the balancing act.

Once you've narrowed down the kind of power and amenities you need, setting a baseline budget is important. That budget should include maintenance, gas, and even vehicle accessories. Checking out the CARFAX Vehicle History Report™ prior to buying a pre-owned Silverado is the best way to learn about where it has been serviced, whether it has ever been in an accident, and how many previous owners it has had.

You'll always want to schedule a test drive, too. It's the best way to get a feel for the truck, and that goes beyond just driving. Inspect the interior, check out the exterior and wheels, and see how much bed space you'll have for all your important cargo.

Pre-Owned Chevy Silverado 1500 Inventory

The Chevy Silverado has received an extensive redesign for the 2019 model year. What does that mean for you? It means there are a number of standout pre-owned options to discover on our lot from previous model years.

The 2018 Chevy Silverado features a V6 engine, which delivers 285 horsepower and 305 lb-ft of torque. There are two different V8 engines to choose from, too.

If you'll be towing often, then you can't go wrong with the Silverado. It carries a maximum towing capacity of 12,500 lbs., with a maximum payload of 2,250 pounds; competitive numbers for a full-size pickup.

Inside the cabin, you'll have the capable infotainment system with a 7-inch touchscreen and Bluetooth® wireless capability. Our inventory also has a number of 2016 Chevy Silverado and 2015 Silverado options to select from.
