Looking for a full-size pickup with a big V8 that isn't stupidly expensive? You may be in luck.

Finding a V8-powered pickup truck in 2020 is no trouble at all. The struggle is finding an affordable one. The average new full-size truck goes for about $50,000, and the average used transaction for one is north of $30,000. And that's before you factor in wanting the larger engine.

The fortunate thing with full-size trucks is there are a lot of them. And while you won't find that mint Toyota Tundra for less than $10,000, you can find some reasonable eight-cylinder options that are anything but pricey.

Below, we present five great used V8 trucks we found for less than $10,000 apiece. (Note: all these trucks were still available as of this story's original publication, but may have been removed as they get sold.)

2004 Dodge Ram 1500 – $9,995

Sure, Ram will sell you a 1500 pickup with a 5.7-liter V8, but the new one will cost you a lot more than $10,000. Here's a clean 4x4 model with just under 91,000 miles. It has a maroon exterior and black interior, which will dramatically increase the odds someone brings up former Washington football team head coach Jim Zorn in your presence.

Here's a clean-looking Sierra with fewer than 90,000 miles. The 2000s cladding isn't the sharpest look, but it's better than blinding oncoming traffic with chrome. You want connectivity? This truck has a 2007-spec MP3 audio input jack.

Passengers are overrated. Here's a single cab 2000 Silverado in an alluring, apparently still-intact shade of Indigo Blue Metallic. It has fewer than 70,000 miles.

Ford still sells an F-150 with a V8, but they've moved heavily toward six-cylinder models in recent years, and hybrid/electric versions are coming. Still, if you want a throwback, here's a pristine-looking red F-150 from 2005 with a big 5.4-liter V8 and fewer than 80,000 miles.

2007 Toyota Tundra SR5 – $8,499

The Tundra benefits from Toyota's usual crazy-high resale value, but we still managed to find one with a V8 for less than $10,000. The mileage count — more than 185,000 — is steep. But it's a Toyota, so it should still have some life left.
