The car broker Autoteck St-Eustache presents its Top 5 trucks and SUVs on the used car market. If you are looking for a good used truck in the Laval region, this article is sure to help you make the best decision. However, stopping by for a visit and checking out a pre-owned SUV or truck in person is always the best way of determining its quality.

1. The Used RAM 1500

The used RAM 1500 is without a doubt one of the most popular trucks we offer near Laval. The RAM 1500 has won plenty of awards: it was named the 2019, 2020 and 2021 Truck of the Year by MotorTrend, the 2016, 2017 and 2020 Pickup Truck of the Year as well as the 2021 Best Full-Size Pickup in Canada in 2021 by the Automobile Journalists Association of Canada (AJAC).

Arguably the most luxurious truck on the market, its interior is made with high-quality materials such as leather and real wood, and it’s all brought together with meticulous workmanship. The rear seat can be reclined and passengers will enjoy plenty of legroom thanks to a cab that is longer than most of its competitors. Depending on the model year, the pre-owned RAM 1500 can be equipped with a dual-pane panoramic sunroof, a Harman/Kardon premium sound system, an 8.4 or 12 inch touchscreen, a navigation system, as well as heated seats including a 12-way power-adjustable driver's seat with 4-way lumbar support.

Used RAM 1500 trucks can be equipped with any of the following powertrains:

  • A 3.6L Pentastar V6 engine that generates 305 horsepower and 269 lb-ft of torque, equipped with Etorque to generate an additional 90 lb-ft of starting torque;
  • A 5.7L HEMI V8 with 395 horsepower and 410 lb-ft of torque;
  • A 3.0L EcoDiesel V6 with an incredible 480 lb-ft of torque and a towing capacity of 5,697 kg (12,560 lbs);
  • A Supercharged 6.2L HEMI V8 engine. Standard on TRX versions of the RAM 1500, this V8 cranks out 702 horsepower and 650 lb-ft of torque.

These 4 engines are paired with an 8-speed automatic transmission with 4x2 or 4x4 drivetrains.

Some of our used RAM 1500 trucks are also equipped with a blind-spot monitoring system. What’s more, this system can detect the trailer you are hauling, calculate its length and extend the range of the monitoring system. Some used RAM 1500 trucks can also be equipped with 360o vision, which provides a bird's eye view of everything around your RAM 1500 on your touchscreen.

Among the line-up of pre-owned SUVs that we offer to our clientele in the Laval area, we occasionally have exceptional SUVs like the Audi Q5. Designed for motion, classy and oozing power with every detail, this SUV is synonymous with luxury and performance.

Starting with the 2018 model year, the Q5 features a turbocharged, inline 4-cylinder engine with the mild-hybrid system. This 16-valve turbo engine is paired with a 7-speed S tronic transmission and Quattro all-wheel drive. This powertrain delivers 261 horsepower, 273 lb-ft of torque and a towing capacity of 2,000 kg (4,400 lbs). The used Audi Q5 can reach 209 km/h in only 6.3 seconds.

After naming it the 2018 Best New SUV, the AJAC also named the Audi Q5 the Best Compact Luxury SUV in 2019, 2020 and 2021.

3. The Used Mercedes GLA 4MATIC

Since the 2015 model, the design team at Mercedes has given a sports car exterior to this urban SUV. Despite being the smallest of the Mercedes SUVs, the GLA 4MATIC is far from being shy. The Mercedes GLA 4MATIC 250 is equipped with a 2.0L turbocharged 4-cylinder engine, a 7-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission and the high-performance 4MATIC all-wheel drive. This high-performance powertrain produces 208 horsepower and 258 lb-ft of torque.

With the 45 trim, the Mercedes AMG GLA SUV is much more than a family SUV. It takes on a decidedly sporty attitude with its 2.0L turbocharged engine that generates 375 horsepower and 350 lb-ft of torque. What’s more, its 4-tipped sport exhaust system produces a roar worthy of the best race cars.

Known for their reliability, safety, excellent handling and of course their unmatched comfort, the GLA continues the excellent tradition of Mercedes SUVs.

Even with tens of thousands of kilometers on the odometer, the pre-owned Mercedes GLA 4MATIC remains a high-class crossover and is always a very interesting investment!

4. The used Kia Sportage

In the inventory of SUVs that Autoteck St-Eustache offers not far from Laval, the used Kia Sportage is near the top of the list. The Sportage is a well-built and carefully designed SUV from the Korean brand, and for many years it’s been delivering a fun ride with good handling. It can easily handle the pot holes and difficult conditions provided by our roads.

The Sportage is as safe as it is reliable, and newer versions of the used Kia Sportage can be equipped with advanced driver assist technologies such as:

  • Forward Collision Avoidance, which automatically brakes to prevent or reduce the severity of a collision;
  • Blind Spot View Monitor, which displays a visual alert on the side mirrors when it detects a vehicle in a blind spot;
  • Rear Cross Traffic Alert, which detects approaching vehicles as you back up when parking your Sportage.

5. The used Chevrolet Silverado

The Chevrolet Silverado is available as a work truck with a regular cab, double or crew cab. It is also available in more luxurious versions (LTZ, High Country) and, more recently, in off-road versions (RST, Trail Boss). Whether it's for work, travel or adventures, there's a used Silverado 1500 that's right for you.

In addition to its rugged and athletic silhouette, the Silverado offers a functional interior that is perfect for contractors and fun for travelers. The Silverado also offers an impressive array of powertrains to choose from.

Standard on base Silverado 1500 models is a 4.3L EcoTec3 V6 that produces 285 horsepower and 305 lb-ft of torque. This EcoTec3 engine is paired with a 6-speed automatic transmission. LT, Trail Boss and High Country versions come standard with the 5.3L EcoTec V8 engine with stop/start technology and a 10-speed automatic transmission. This powertrain produces 355 hp and 383 lb-ft of torque. On LT, RST and LTZ versions, this V8 engine is paired with an 8-speed automatic transmission.

Depending on the options chosen by the previous owner, you could get your hands on a pre-owned Silverado powered by a 6.2L V8 engine with 420 hp, 460 lb-ft of torque and a towing capacity of 6,033 kg (13,300 lb). Some used Silverado models are instead equipped with a Duramax turbodiesel engine with 277 hp, 460 lb-ft of torque and a towing capacity of 4,309 kg. This engine also boasts a low fuel consumption of only 10.2 L/100 km in the city and 7.2 L/100 km on the highway. Your next Silverado could also be powered by a 2.7L turbocharged gasoline engine paired to an 8-speed transmission. This engine produces 310 hp and 348 lb-ft of torque. With the right equipment, the Silverado 1500 can carry over 1,000 kg (2,200 lbs) in its 2,500 L (89 ft3) bed.

The newer Custom Trail Boss and LT Trail Boss versions feature 18" black aluminum wheels, off-road tires, Rancho shocks, an Autotrac 2-speed 4WD transfer case, a locking rear differential and off-road skid plates. The LT Trail Boss adds LED headlights and fog lights, a dual-tip exhaust and heated front bucket seats and a 10-way power-adjustable driver's seat.

Newer models of the Silverado also feature several infotainment technologies such as Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, Bluetooth, USB ports, Waze navigation, Alexa integration, music streaming with SiriusXM, Spotify and Amazon Music and the myChevrolet app. It also features OnStar emergency services, which provide you with direct access to an OnStar advisor. They can also send directions directly to your Silverado's infotainment system upon request, as well as recommending the best restaurants and hotels on your route. They can also call a tow truck in case of an accident.
