Used truck price drop hurts new pickups

Rising fuel prices and a collapsing housing industry have sent used truck prices into a nosedive that could threaten the launches of the new Ford F-150 and Dodge Ram pickups.

The same market forces have been eroding new pickup sales for a couple of years, and the accelerating decline in used pickup prices is putting additional pressure on a vehicle segment already under stress.

Used pickup prices plummeted nearly 13 percent year over year in April, according to Manheim Consulting, which tracks used vehicle sales across the United States. It was the biggest drop on record. Prices for full-size light-duty pickups dropped nearly 16 percent, but the real shock came in the full-size heavy-duty segment, where prices fell almost 20 percent.
