Ford F-150 Among Best 10 Year Old Trucks For The Money

Given the fact that it’s a perennial best-seller for The Blue Oval, it’s no surprise that the Ford F-150 has also landed on all sorts of “best of” lists in recent years, including the best-selling used vehicle overall in 2021. As it turns out, used F-150 pickups are excellent values, and that point is further proven by the latest data from iSeeCars, which ranks it as one of the best 10-year-old trucks for the money. It isn’t alone in that regard either, as both the Ford Edge and Ford Expedition made the cut as two of the best decade-old SUV values as well.

This information comes to us via iSeeCars’ recently released list of the best used vehicles for the money, a group it singled out by analyzing over two million used vehicle transactions. The company then identified the models with the longest lifespan and compared each with current used car values. The resulting list ranks 10-year-old vehicles by the price of their remaining potential lifespan – or the lowest price per remaining 1,000 miles of expected lifespan.

In that sense, the Ford F-150 ranked eighth on this particular list with an average price tag of $19,819 and a remaining lifespan of 99,658 miles – which equates to $199 per 1,000 miles. iSeeCars estimates that 10-year-old F-150 pickups have a potential lifespan of 232,650 miles, with around 42.8 percent of that total remaining, on average. By comparison, the entire pickup segment averaged $19,552, with a remaining lifespan of 102,437 miles or 44.9 percent left in their total usable lifespan.

“Although used car pricing is slowly dropping, it remains near record levels, putting a serious financial pinch on first-time buyers or used car shoppers needing to replace their current vehicle. And new vehicle pricing is simply unrealistic for many consumers,” said Karl Brauer, Executive Analyst for “But we now know shoppers can buy a 10-year-old car that costs substantially less than 1-5 year-old used models, yet these vehicles still have 80,000 or more miles of life left in them. All of these top 20 cars provide a potential lifespan above 200,000 miles.”
