Prices of Large Used Pickup Trucks and SUVs Surge Over 20%

Large SUV and TrucksThe average wholesale prices of large SUVs were up 25% this past May when compared to the same time last year. The prices of full-sized pickups are up 21%.

Why the huge surge in prices? Last year, when gas prices started hitting record highs, sales of gas-guzzlers plunged. Nobody wanted them (which is exactly when you should buy them).

Now that gas prices have come down, people are again flocking to trucks and SUVs.

If you're looking to buy one of these large trucks or SUVs, you missed your best opportunity last summer.

Many analyts expect gas prices to level off this summer, but if they do shoot up like last year, we can expect the prices of these vehicles to come back down.

That's when you want to make your move! Remember, car prices are all about supply and demand. You want to buy when demand is low and hold off when demand is high. As much as everyone hates high gas prices, if you want to buy a large truck, you should be hoping for higher gas prices to save thousands on a new or used truck.

Step 1 Get Prices From My Trusted Network

Select the vehicle you're interested in to see if there are local dealers in my network who will provide you with their best upfront price. You will get direct access to an internet sales manager who you can further negotiate with online (no need to visit dealership).
