What is the best mileage to buy a used diesel truck?

Buying a used truck for sale isn't always easy, but the rewards outweigh any extra work required. When you're looking for an impressive selection of used trucks near you, USA-1 is the perfect place to shop. Our truck inventory includes everything from compact trucks to brawny, rugged diesel trucks for sale. 

If you're in the market for a used diesel truck, USA-1 has some helpful information for you. Diesel engines are very different from gasoline powertrains, after all! Our used car dealership in Goshen, Indiana would like to share our advice for buying a used diesel pickup.

 

What is considered high mileage for a diesel?

For gasoline-powered used trucks for sale near you, anything over 100,000 miles is considered high. That's not to say a used gas truck will stop functioning once it hits 100,000 on the odometer! Rather, severe problems are more likely to develop once a gasoline engine reaches this point in its life. 

However, diesel engines are built to last much longer than any gasoline powertrain. Diesel trucks for sale boast significantly longer lifespans. If you're looking for a used truck for sale that will perform well for many years to come, you can opt for a higher-mileage diesel truck. To err on the side of caution, diesel trucks with under 250,000 miles are considered the safest investment. 

 

How many miles will a diesel truck last?

According to AutoAndFleetMechanic.com, some diesel engines can run for over a million miles before needing major work. But don't expect every diesel truck for sale to last that long! However, with suitable maintenance, you can expect a used diesel truck to last a very long time

The very design of a diesel engine supports a long lifespan for any used truck for sale. Diesel fuel itself lubricates the engine, causing less wear-and-tear over the years than a gas powertrain would. Diesel powertrains use spontaneous combustion, which burns fuel at a leaner pace than gas engines. They're built with stronger components to withstand this combustive force, leading to longer-lasting, more resilient trucks.

 

Is it worth owning a diesel truck?

If you're looking for the ideal used truck for sale near you, is diesel the best option? Diesel trucks for sale offer many advantages, but they aren't the ideal choice for every customer. Diesel fuel is more difficult to find than gasoline, their engines are more expensive to maintain, and they perform best on the highway. If you can live with these downsides, you'll enjoy superior fuel economy, longer-lasting used trucks near you, and better torque. Diesel trucks for sale also offer better long-term resale value.
