If you're looking for a fast truck along with a good look to it, I'd recommend the 2016 Ford F-150
The average price of a 2016 F-150 (based on more than 4,900 listings for the truck on our used car site) is $34,500.
That's typical for a half-ton pickup. Prices range from $24,700 to $46,800, in part because the F-150 offers such a varied selection of options, body styles, and trim levels.
I know this is expensive but either along holidays or manufacturer sale events are good opportunities to snatch.
You'll need to determine the market value of a vehicle before you begin to negotiate.
This figure will serve as the backbone of your strategy and will give you a reference point when you start getting price quotes from the dealership.
Other than that I'd recommend checking out the 2015 Dodge Ram 1500. It has a good acceleration as well a a hot exterior and interior.
It's power is astounding having a base engine = 3.6-liter gasoline V6 generating 305 horsepower and 269 pound-feet of torque.
The transmission is an eight-speed automatic. Rather than a traditional shift lever, the eight-speed is controlled by a rotary knob on the instrument panel.
I recommended the Ford first because it tends to be cheaper on gas for long distance and it much lighter than Ram. But Ram's percentage by brand, passes all light-duty pickups sold over the last 30 years still on the road by 80%.
Ram exceeds GMC, Chev, and Ford by power-train, 4x4 tech, capability, safety, storage, features, and specifics in trucks.
