The 2018 Chevy Silverado and GMC Sierra finished just ahead of the Ford F-150 in the newest list of Kelly Blue Book (KBB) Best Resale Value Rankings. The trucks finished fifth and sixth overall in the rankings of all vehicles – not just trucks.


“Chevrolet recently celebrated 100 years as a truck maker,” said Sandor Piszar, director of Marketing, Chevrolet Trucks. “We’ve built more than 85 million dependable, long-lasting pickups with an emphasis on quality, which will continue to be an integral focus for our lineup moving forward.”


The top vehicle overall was the Toyota Tacoma, followed by the Tundra and 4Runner. Chevy’s Colorado was 8th overall, and the Tahoe topped its class as did the Silverado HD.


These are projected resale values of course. More at KBB .

Shocked!  Nothing surprising here Toyota being the most stagnant of all manufactures and FERD's 2.7L,3.5L Ecoboost junk.  Looks good Ferd let's talk to some ecoboost owners after 150K?  That's what I thought............................

I personally think the new front end Chevrolet went with looks just right. Ford has the aluminum body but too much chrome, fake or real and the whole "Busy", Not really sure how that's working for some,  But the Silverado full size is the real bread winner. I'm not real sure of why I dislike the Canyon and Colorado. They somehow look like there something missing.  Looks kinda like they were pressed together at the top, like they hope to be full size one day ?????

      I’m deciding if I should add a coil spacer on my 2wd Silverado. I’m torn between a 2”, 2.5”, or 3”. Ideally I would like to run a 3” but I’ve heard I would need new control arms with a 3” but I would like some other opinions. If so, would is the biggest I could do without needing to replace any parts? Also I plan on adding some rear lift blocks and not sure what minimum size block would I need for it to sit level?

      Earlier this week GM-Trucks.com reported that the bean counters at Goldman Sachs had estimated import tariffs on steel and aluminum could cost GM $1billion in profits. Maybe they were wrong? In an interview this week, GM's CEO Marry Barra was asked specifically about the top-selling General Motors vehicle, the Silverado. The host asked, "Have you done any studies? Would it jump the price of a GM Silverado by $100? Is there a way to gauge?" Ms. Barra's answer was interesting. She said, "It's a small impact. We would look to find offsets and efficiencies in other places to not have to pass that on to the customer." Although that was good news for Silverado buyers, what Barra said earlier in the interview was a bit of a surprise, given the media's coverage of the tariff issue. When asked if she thought there would be tariffs on imported steel and what it would mean for the price of a General Motors car, Barra said, "We source about 90% of our steel and the majority of our aluminum from the United States. So when I look at the specific impact from that perspective I think it something we can more than offset. " 
      Barra did go on to say that if there is a change that drives the cost up it will have a direct effect on demand.  For part one of our coverage regarding why GM and other automakers are staying silent on tariffs, please check out our prior story.

      Hello all, glad to be a part of your forums. My first truck was a 2004 Silverado SS Onyx Black. Since then I've had a few cars/suv's in between but I'm sooo glad to be back in a Chevy truck. 
      Last weekend I picked up a used 2014 Silverado LT 5.3L V8 from the local Chevy dealership in Enid, Oklahoma. Shortly after this picture was taken I added a Reflex spray in liner, tinted the front windows to match the back 20%, installed a leveling kit, and added a stubby antenna. At first I wasn't sure whether to go with Black or Chrome accents but lately I'm leaning towards chrome. I recently found a Undercover FLEX bed cover and Chrome running boards that I hope to have within the next week. After that I want to find neoprene seat covers (gray?) and chrome door handles with matching mirrors. 
      Brownstone is a unique color that not everyone can rock but if done right it's hard to beat!

      Hello, I looked 2008 GMC Sierra 1500 that I was interested in purchasing with the 5.3L V8 has 174,000 miles. Truck runs rough at idle, rpms are fluctuating. Check engine light is on with codes P0300 and P0301. Can’t troubleshoot the problem. Coils, spark plugs, spark plug wires, new O2 sensors, new catalytic converters. Guy says that rockers all move so it isn’t Active Fuel Management lifters and he says 150 psi of compression across all 8 cylinders. Truck was at dealership, dealership says problem with cylinder numbers 1 and 8 the P0301 explains problem with cylinder 1 but why isn’t code P0308 being thrown? What else could be the problem?

      Well, I have a bit of a issue with water leaks in a new 1500 ltz z71.   The history is, we keep it garaged most of the time so water leaks had not been an issue..  recently we had to do some remodel at the house and used the garage to store/cut wood.  We've left the vehicle outside for several months.  I kept noticing that we would get an occasional moisture in the windows as the temperature changed plus a slight odor of musk smell.  Well, on a last year, we got a chip in the windshield that had to be replaced.  Then after several torrential rains over several months, I noticed one day that my drivers side carpet was soaked.  the water went all the way up the firewall. in the padding under the carpet.  Naturally we suspected the windshield and had the company that warranty it come back and fix.  after drying the carpet out with a small fan over several days. During the next rain (torrential) it was wet again.  Again we called the windshield company and they removed / reinstalled the windshield again (3rd time) .  This time while the windshield tech had the windshield removed I looked at what possibly could leak and where it would go down the inside firewall.  There was only one way and it had to be due to lack of enough windshield adhesive in the upper left corner where the water could drip into the A pillar and down to behind the speaker then into the cab.   While the windshield was out, I removed the A pillar trim so I can verify the windshield and also verify that the upper sat antenna wasn't leaking.   Again I dried the carpet and parked the truck going down hill nose down.  I took the water hose and flooded the areas we thought was leaking....  no water leaks.  ok good.  Just to double check that I didn't have another issue, I then proceeded to run water over the driver door seal area.. (I had removed the drivers sill molding and placed paper towels around the door seal bottom so I could see if it leaked) front door was not leaking.  I then decided to "just for grins" check the rear.  I took off the sill molding and noticed the carpet and the padding was wet back there.. I dried up the puddles of water, then tested the back door seal using same method.  no leak. 
      ok then I thought where in the heck would this water be coming from.  After googling and watching a video of the rear body vent leaks, I decided to test the rear body vent on drivers side... by just letting water drip from the rear window down on the vent, and after a few minutes water started poring into the rear.   Ah ha.. So this is where it is leaking...  and it makes sense now, I have a bed cover and every time it rains water goes forward onto the cab and then drips onto the vent, the water penetrates runs under the carpet all the way to the drivers side if the truck is parked nose down.  the carpet is wicking up the water that is why it is wet all the way up the firewall.    
      Anyone owning a Chevrolet pickup needs to verify the rear carpet is not getting wet.  Faulty or leaking vents could allow exhaust or other gases to penetrate into the vehicle as well as water.  It would be so simple to put some sort of "outer water shield" over the outside of those flaps so water could not hit the flaps. This would direct the water downward and still allow the cab to breathe..  on installation seal the unit with silicone around the perimeter where it meets the cab metal so there would be a good seal on the unit.   geez..  
      This needs to be a recall.. this is a faulty design and needs to be redesigned.  I am taking this to the stealer next week as the vehicle is under warranty for 500 more miles.
