If you're looking at used trucks for sale in Billings, MT, the first decision you need to make is what size you want to shop for. While there are plenty of different classifications of truck size, the most popular style is the half-ton 4x4. Here's why.

1. They Cost Less Money

As the smallest pickup on the market, the half-ton 4x4 is less burly--and thus less expensive--than its bigger brothers, the three-quarter-ton and the one-ton.

But don't let the word "smallest" fool you. Classified as a general-duty, full-size truck, the half-ton 4x4 is highly capable of getting the job done, with a great curb weight (around 5,000+ pounds) and huge payload capacity (generally between 1,000 and 3,000 pounds).

All things considered, it's your best bet if you're looking for a good value.

2. They Consume Less Fuel

Another reason the half-ton 4x4 is so popular is that it is far more fuel efficient than most other truck sizes. Since it's more compact, it consumes less fuel--and thus less money. So if you go with a half-ton, it'll save you a good chunk of change on gas over the long haul.

3. They Drive More Comfortably

When it's all said and done, the half-ton 4x4 is just plain old comfortable. Designed with daily driving in mind, half-ton trucks tend to be more easy on the eyes and body, with a sleek exterior and spacious interior. Plus, with sturdy four-wheel drive and excellent handling, it's supremely nice to drive.
