The used Ford F-250 4x4 is definitely a truck with extraordinary power. For over 50 years, all F series Ford trucks have been the most sold pick-ups in all of Canada. The fact that they keep being chosen again and again by consumers, is certainly the greatest assurance of quality a used truck can offer!
Powerful, tough and capable of dealing with any obstacle left by residential, commercial or on road construction sites, the Heavy Duty Ford F-250 can also easily tow a huge RV from one end of Quebec to the other! Most of our used F-250s have 6.2 L V8 engines, coupled with an automatic 6 speed Torque Shift transmission.

2. The Jeep Wrangler
The used Jeep Wrangler is probably the most entertaining 4x4 to drive, especially off-road. If you like to play in the sand, in the mud, in the snow and in water, the used 4x4 Wrangler is the one you need! This is especially true if you are an outdoor sports fan. It is even more so if you have forever been dreaming of a vehicle from which you can remove doors and roof, fold-up the windshield and get lost in nature with the wind on your face, and only trees and sky as far as the eye can see!
Amongst the different 4x4 Jeep Wrangler models that we have ready for purchase, the Unlimited is definitely worth mentioning with its prestigious features like the Rubicon shock absorbers, the 3 section rigid roof and the bumper in the same color as the exterior body.

1. The RAM 1500
The used RAM 1500 remains one of the 4x4 trucks (or rather THE 4x4 truck) that is the best in combining off-road power, luxury and safety.
Throughout the years, many specialized and well-renowned Medias as well as many professional organisations in the Canadian and North-American automobile industry have awarded the RAM 1500 with several nominations. For example, MOTORTREND magazine gave the RAM Pickup the title of Truck of the Year for three years in a row (2019, 2020 and 2021). The AJAC awarded the RAM 1500 the title of Best Large Truck in the Country for 2021. In previous years, the AJAC had given it the Best Utility Vehicle of the Year 2016 and Best Utility Vehicle of the Year 2017 titles.
The minute you’ll open the doors to a used 4x4 RAM 1500, you’ll notice that it is the most luxurious pickup available on the pre-owned 4x4 market. Materials are refined, leg-space is generous, its wide center console allows enough space to store a laptop and its information center gives the driver all necessary data for the journey including tire pressure, interior temperature and so much more.
Most of our used RAM 1500s have one version or another of the Uconnect infotainment system. Depending on its version, Uconnect includes a tactile screen, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, mobile telephony, hands-free texting, vocal commands (which can include navigation) and a powerful Harman/Kardon high-end audio system.
Our used 4x4 Ram 1500s are just as comfortable in the heart of heavy-duty construction jobs, muddy roads, or towing your RV all around North-America toward the most beautiful camping sites.
The 4x4 RAM 1500’s engine torque and towing capacity require a hefty body and superior suspension. This is why the pickup’s frame is made of high-resistance steel. It is also why the used RAM 1500s are equipped with a front suspension which combines coil-springs and shock absorbers, while the rear suspension has 5-links and helical coil-springs.
Depending on year and model, the 4x4 RAM 1500 has:
- A 3.6 L Pentastar V6 engine with 305 horsepower and 269 lb-ft engine torque
