Chevrolet Silverado HD Rules KBB Resale Value Rankings
Truck buyers looking to make a solid long-term investment may want to take a look at the 2020 Chevrolet Silverado HD. According to Kelley Blue Book’s annual ratings, the Silverado HD boasts the best-projected resale value in the heavy-duty pickup class.
KBB predicts that the Silverado HD will retain 60.1 percent of its value after five years of ownership. That places it well ahead of rivals like the Ram Heavy Duty and the Ford Super Duty.
Newly redesigned for 2020, the Chevrolet Silverado HD lineup consists of the Silverado 2500HD and Silverado 3500HD models. Both of these trucks are built to take a beating, handle massive towing jobs, and haul hefty loads.

The Silverado HD is rated to tow up to 35,500 pounds and carry a payload of up to 7,400 pounds. It’s available with either a 6.6-liter gas V8 engine or a 6.6-liter turbodiesel. The Silverado HD can be outfitted with FWD or 4WD, single or dual rear wheels, and a couple of different cab and bed sizes.
The interior of the Silverado HD is durable, too — and even comfortable. The crew cab can carry up to six people, there’s plenty of the latest tech for safety and infotainment, and available amenities include leather trim and heated seats.
Buyers who want great resale value should also consider the Silverado HD’s General Motors sibling, the 2020 GMC Sierra HD. KBB predicts that the Sierra HD will hold 59.3 percent of its value over five years — not far off the pace set by the Silverado HD. The Sierra HD offers many of the same capabilities and features while contributing a distinct sense of premium style.
