    Pickups are best used sellers in Texas


    As the scenery changes as you move across state lines, the types of cars you see on the road change as well. While the Toyota Prius may be a popular model in Los Angeles, it doesn’t suit the needs of a resident of Denver. Cold weather states prefer cars with all-wheel drive, such as the Subaru Impreza. When it comes to Texas though, buyers have made it very clear that they prefer full-sized pickup trucks.

    In June of last year, used car buyers in Texas purchased nearly 55,000 used full-size pickup trucks. The bestselling models were the Ford F-series, the Chevrolet Silverado and the Dodge Ram. The bestselling used sedan in Texas was the Toyota Camry, with a smaller 1.3 percent market share.

    Since all pickup sales account for over 23 percent of used vehicles sold in Texas, there is certainly no shortage of trucks to pick from. Dealers like a wide range of used trucks to satisfy the demand of buyers. Their Corpus Christi dealership is happy to sell you a new or used Mitsubishi, though used pickups make up a large portion of their inventory
