The Smart Shopper’s Guide to Buying Used Ram Vehicles in Santa Maria

The Ram brand focuses all of its energy on hard-working trucks and vans, and that kind of attention pays off with some of the toughest vehicles on the road today. These aren’t just basic work models, either. Ram’s lineup, new and used, showcases a surprising range of high-end amenities that let you tackle the toughest challenges while sitting back in the lap of luxury. You can find pre-owned Ram from both sides of the spectrum at CarMotive, where we’re plenty motivated to sell trucks, too!

Why Buy a Used Ram?

Now, because so many brand-new Ram trucks are so big, bold, and well-equipped, they can also come with full-sized pricing. Shopping for used Ram models, on the other hand, can help you save loads of money. You can chalk that up squarely to depreciation. Nearly all new vehicles start losing value as soon as they’re driven off the lot, with the typical ride losing 20% to 30% of its value in the first year alone. By the time a car or truck finishes year 5, it will often be worth roughly 60% less than its original purchase price. It’s an unavoidable part of buying a new vehicle but a welcome benefit when shopping for used Ram trucks. A further advantage is that a vehicle that costs less to buy also tends to cost less to insure.

Of course, the condition of a used truck affects its value as well, but we can help you get a handle on that with a used-vehicle history report that supplies info about past owners, previous service, and possible accidents.

A Brief History of Ram

The unmistakable Ram logo dates back to the 1930s, when it first appeared on certain Dodge vehicles. In fact, the Ram name remained part of Dodge for decades and eventually was used for Dodge’s own trucks beginning in 1980. Ram went out on its own in 2010 as a way to better address the needs of truck fans across the country. Needless to say, that was good timing, and the increased consumer demand for trucks, plus Ram’s innovative expertise, firmly established the brand as a power player in the U.S. market. Ram has sold millions of vehicles in its first decade and is determined to move more metal going forward.
