Looking for an Affordable Truck? Try These 2 Chevrolet Models

2018 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 | Portland, ME

If you expand your search to used models, it’s easy to find a pickup truck for an affordable price. Two of the most budget-friendly options are the Chevrolet Silverado 1500 and the older Chevrolet S10 ZR2. These models were recently recognized for their affordability by Car and Driver, which named them both to an annual list of Best Used Trucks for Under $10,000.

The Silverado 1500 has been a Chevrolet bestseller since 1999. It’s a capable, durable choice for everything from do-it-yourself projects to family hauling. Silverado models can be found with a wide range of engine, cab, and bed options. Your best bet for a Silverado on a tighter budget is a first-generation or second-generation model from 2014 or earlier.

The off-road-ready Chevrolet S10 ZR2 was sold from 1994 to 2003. Even though it’s smaller than most of today’s pickups, its tough, lifted body and hardy V6 engine make it a great (but still economical) option for moving furniture, tackling yard work, or hitting the trail.

If you’re in the market for these or other affordable trucks, be sure to stop in and see us here at Quirk Chevrolet of Portland. We offer one of Maine’s most impressive selections of pre-owned vehicles, and we can’t wait to help you find what you’re looking for!

Silverado 1500 XFE Fuel Economy Package is a Must-Have

Silverado 1500 | Portland, ME

If you’re looking for a vehicle that can do hard work without compromising fuel economy, look no further than the Chevrolet Silverado 1500, which is offered with an excellent XFE Fuel Economy package.

The Silverado 1500 XFE Fuel Economy package is offered on 5.3-liter V8 models, bringing its EPA-estimated highway fuel economy up from 23 to 24 mpg and combined fuel economy from 19 to 20 mpg.*

The package is offered only on the Silverado 1500 LT trim with 2WD and a Short Bed and Crew Cab body style. It’s also not available if you opt for any other package, such as the Max Trailering Package, Convenience Package or Z71 Off-Road Package (after all, trailering and off-roading aren’t exactly conducive to fuel efficiency).

Nonetheless, the XFE Fuel Economy Package offers more than just improved mileage. Also included are 18-inch Bright Silver painted wheels, all-season blackwall tires and a premium, soft roll-up tonneau cover.

All of this will set you back $850, but with the extra mpg, you’ll likely make it back long before you replace the truck. The Silverado 1500, after all, is built to last a long time.

If you’re interested the Silverado 1500 XFE Fuel Economy package, visit Quirk Chevrolet of Portland and ask fot it to be added to your truck!
