Question Good Trucks?

I have been looking at cars and trucks and i don't know a whole lot about trucks so im wondering what are some good trucks that would hold 4 people 4 doors would be good im not really looking for the best. im not gonna be using it for towing maybe doing some off roading here and there. also looking for ones around 6000 used so what are some good choices and.

Well, I would avoid the full size trucks then, and go for maybe a Chevy Colorado or Dodge Dakota. Or perhaps a midsize Nissan/Toyota truck, but they generally go for higher than the price you are looking at.

The irritating thing to me is that the Dodge Dakota isn't really a 'small' pickup, in fact if you take the Dakota and park it beside any of the full size trucks from the 80's, the dang thing is just as big or bigger than they are.

I always wished they'd build a small Dodge pickup and put the Caliber SRT-4 motor in it, that would be FUN

If gas milage isn't too much of an issue, you might look at a RAM 1500 - the motors in those things run forever. lol

(And SRT, my dad has a twin cam toyota SR5 - the smallest one they make - (I don't remember what size engine - I think it's 3.2 V6) - it really surprised me the first time I drove it. It kickes pretty well...up to about 40mph. lol)

You actually might like one of those...he's got a 2-door 4-seater...tiny, but it's been very reliable.

If you get a ram 1500 do NOT get the 4.7 liter engine though, that's what we have in ours and we are f'ing lucky if we get 14 miles per gallon combines, maybe 15 on the highway. The 5.7 hemi does better by far.

lol, I had a 94' Ram 1500 with the 5.9L Magnum...I got 11.5 mpg max - and I was driving 300+ miles per week. (Needless to say, I sold it when gas prices went up. lol)
