ADDITIONAL MODEL INFORMATION

If you're interested in a new pickup but dismayed by high pricing, you might want to consider a certified pre-owned model. CPO trucks are usually a few years old, but they offer a manufacturer-backed warranty and a great deal compared to a brand-new model -- such a great deal, in fact, that we've rounded up six certified pre-owned pickups you can buy today with a $15,000 discount compared to a brand-new truck.

2013 Chevrolet Silverado

The Chevrolet Silverado is a full-size pickup that offers V6 or V8 power -- and a lot of mechanical similarities to the GMC Sierra, which is also worth checking out if you're interested in an excellent used pickup. We happen to like the Silverado for its styling, its capabilities, its long list of body styles and, if you get a certified pre-owned model, two attractive warranties: a 1-year or 12,000-mile bumper-to-bumper warranty and a 5-year or 100,000-mile powertrain plan. You'll also get a good deal if you choose a 2013 model, as the average 2013 Silverado is available on Autotrader for $29,600 -- a big discount from new prices, which can range as high as $50,000 in the upscale High Country trim.

2012-2013 Ford F-250

The Ford F-250 is a heavy-duty pickup truck that offers impressive capabilities for drivers who need a truck with serious towing or hauling potential. Offered in several body styles and boasting several available engines, a new F-250 starts around $35,000 -- though prices can climb to well above $60,000 with options. Choose a certified pre-owned model, however, and you'll get a great deal, as there are currently almost 150 different certified pre-owned 2012 and 2013 F-250 models on Autotrader with an average asking price of just under $42,000. These trucks also boast Ford's excellent certified pre-owned warranty, which touts 7 years or 100,000 miles of coverage -- though we're a little disappointed by the program's pricy $100 deductible.

2013 GMC Sierra

Like the Chevrolet Silverado, the 2013 GMC Sierra impresses us with its styling, its capabilities, its wide array of body styles and its choice between V6 or V8 power. We're also impressed with its long certified pre-owned warranty, which touts 1 year or 12,000 miles of bumper-to-bumper protection and up to 5 years or 100,000 miles of powertrain coverage. And while a new Sierra can be very pricy -- with base-price figures ranging from around $27,000 for a Work Truck model to nearly $52,000 before options for a luxurious Denali version -- a certified pre-owned 2013 Sierra is available for an affordable average price of just $30,400 on Autotrader.

2013 Ram 1500

We like the 2013 Ram 1500 for its unusually brawny styling, along with the typical pickup-truck benefits, including capabilities that can't be equaled by most cars and SUVs and a wide array of body styles that ensure there's something for just about everyone. Although we wish Ram's certified pre-owned Maximum Care bumper-to-bumper warranty was better (it offers only 3 months or 3,000 miles of coverage), we like the truck's 7-year or 100,000-mile powertrain warranty -- and its reasonable pricing of around $29,400 on Autotrader. That's a far cry from new Ram models, which range from lows at around $27,000 to pricing that reaches as high as the mid-$50,000 range with options and extras.

2013 Ram 2500

The Ram 2500 is a heavy-duty version of the standard Ram pickup that offers more brawn, increased dimensions and unmatched diesel power. While base pricing for a new Ram 2500 can run from $33,000 to well over $60,000 with shipping, we recommend a certified pre-owned 2013 model, which is available on Autotrader for an average price of around $40,000 -- a steep discount from new. More importantly, it also touts Ram's certified pre-owned warranty, which offers bumper-to-bumper coverage for up to 3 months or 3,000 miles -- a figure that can be extended for an extra cost -- and powertrain coverage for up to 7 years or 100,000 miles.

2012-2013 Toyota Tundra

Although new Toyota Tundra models range in cost from $32,600 for a base-level version with no options to a pricy $50,000 before options for an upscale Limited trim, certified pre-owned versions of the truck offer a much better deal: an average price of $32,000 on Autotrader if you consider a 2012 or 2013 model. Do that, and you'll get to choose from nearly 600 different pickups to find the truck you want -- whether you're looking for V6 or V8 power, rear- or 4-wheel drive, a standard bed or a short bed, and an extended cab or a crew cab. You'll also get Toyota's generous CPO warranty, which offers up to 12 months or 12,000 miles of limited comprehensive bumper-to-bumper coverage, along with 7 years or 100,000 miles of powertrain protection.
