More Owners Ditch Luxury Cars in Favor of Trucks
Per CNBC, former owners of luxury vehicles are now turning to upper trim level truck models for their next ride. While the average pickup on the market today costs around $50K, upscale buyers are shelling out $70-90K or more to procure the most decked-out versions of their favorite truck.
Chevrolet gains an edge
Though Ford and Ram models are receiving their fair share of attention, so are Chevrolet’s models. The brand’s High Country trim for the 2019 Silverado is one of the most popular choices for this segment of consumers. This offering includes refined features such as available heated seats, active noise cancellation and a head-up display. Customized features, superior comfort, and the latest technology perks rank high on the list for must-have items. Chevrolet is currently struggling to keep pace with the demand for their top-of-the-line pickups, as CNBC articulates.
Chevrolet’s Silverado definitely has an advantage on the market, in terms of affordability. Even a fully trimmed High Country version costs around $70K, whereas range-topping offerings from Ford and Ram tend to cost closer to the $90K mark.
