Vincentric Names Best Certified Pre-Owned Pickups

 14 Ford F-150 II

As the demand for new vehicles begins to slow down, people are likely to begin gravitating to used vehicles to fit their needs. That's where Vincentric comes in. Using data collected from more than 15,000 vehicle configurations across eight cost factors — depreciation, fees and taxes, financing, fuel consumption, insurance, maintenance, opportunity costs and repairs — Vincentric evaluates used vehicles in all 50 states and Washington, D.C. Vincentric assumes the vehicles have been driven at least 15,000 miles annually.

Vincentric chronicled the best performers over the last five model years (2012-2016), so if you're in the market for a used vehicle, you'll want to scan the list to identify the top performers.

All this data collection and analysis culminates in awards for the Best Certified Pre-Owned Value in America in seven different categories across 42 segments. Chevrolet got the nod for Best Brand Value.

The four pickup winners are:

There's no way the best CPO half-ton is an F150. It's at the bottom of consumer report's reliability survey. Not to mention the only reliability ecoboost is that the timing chain will reliably wear out and start rattling at 80k or so. You can't trust the brakes to work on an EB F150 either. You can rely on the fact that Ford will avoid covering it under warranty.

And now that the body is aluminum, I can't wait for all the paint to flake off, just like it does on the Mustang's aluminum hood (and the explorer's).

And a CPO Tacoma is a risky one unless you crawl under it, check for rust rot, and if it's okay yet, you undercoat the crap out of it. The 2016's are models you definitely want to avoid. If it's used on a dealer's lot, it either has a bad differential, an unfixable transmission, or an unfixable water leak or rusting issues. It'll definitely be WAY overpriced, as are all Tacoma's in my region of the US. For the price of a rusty CPO Tacoma you could get yourself a brand new Nissan Frontier with better financing and a better built truck.

On the other hand, the selection of the Silverado 2500 matches the surveys from Consumer Reports, as long as they're talking about the 6.0L gas engines.

Ford is the best not like pos of Dum I mean ram.

Never cared for ford cept I liked most of their transmissions, the 7.3 powerstroke motor, and so far I find the 6.2 boss motor to be a good motor.

Tide, aka johnny doe, the F150 is NOT at the bottom of CR reliability list. In fact it sits nicely above the GM girls and Ram. Try looking stuff up bro.

GM HD trumps Ford Superduty. No surprise there. What suprises me is how the F-150 got onto the list.

I like the fact the Ford F150 and F350 are still a preferred truck to buy new as the best value. Funny how Ram is no where to be seen.

Who cares. They can buy a flaming recalled Ford. I sure as hell wont pay for one. I made that mistake once. I may be a fool but not a brand new one. Ford is flat out deadly and dangerous. I could care less about resale. Im driving the longest lasting truck on the road and this is my second Ram. Just do your homework kids money talks.

I'll take real life every day use which I have over any paid for website evaluation any day. Fell for it once gave Ford another try with the second truck, more less the same results junk, plus my old man had 2013 5.0 stx with head gasket leak and rust problems barely over 3 years old. I change to GM in 2009 and barely had any down time and now looking at some Rams to see what is best bang for the buck. I don't hate Ford but, if I give them 30 grand for a truck it should last at least 5 years with little to no problem, Ford F150s don't if you work them!

F-150?!?! Article was obviously written by someone who does not spend anytime researching in the truck world
