What Truck Holds its Value Best?

valueBuying a pick-up truck is an investment most people hope will pay dividends from many years of hauling, off-roading and generally being rough and tough. But as your truck ages, you want to know it will hold its value. Of the 2013 pick-up trucks, 3 models stand out. They are the Toyota Tundra, the Honda Ridgeline and the Chevrolet Avalanche.

The pick-up truck which holds its value best is the 2013 Toyota Tundra. The Tundra has shown it can hold its own when compared to the traditional pick-up powers. When Toyota created the Tundra they focused on quality, reliability and safety and it shows. The 2013 Tundra allows consumers to choose from three powerful engine types, three cab sizes and three bed lengths. This allows consumers to put together the perfect truck for their needs.

When it comes to safety, the Tundra is head and shoulders above the competition. It’s the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety top safety pick. That means no matter how large the load or how rough the roadway, everyone in the Tundra is safe and sound. Want towing power? The Tundra with its 381-horsepower V8 engine can easily tow up to 10,400 pounds. Even the V6 model is powerful enough to haul huge loads and tow just about anything. Yet it handles like a dream and is perfect for navigating the urban jungle. The 2013 Toyota Tundra is tops in its class.

When it comes to resale value, only the Tundra holds its value better than the 2013 Honda Ridgeline. Honda’s medium to light-duty pick-up has the heart and the frame of lion. It has enough power and is sturdy enough to handle tough loads, yet it has the creature comforts, refinements people have come to expect from Honda. Add to that its great handling and good looks and you have one very versatile vehicle.

The 3rd place finisher in terms of resale value among pick-ups is the 2013 Chevrolet Avalanche. This is the Swiss army knife of pick-up trucks. The Chevrolet Avalanche can comfortably seat up to six and offers many of the amenities of a top of the line SUV. But make no mistake, when it comes to hauling cargo, the 2013 Chevrolet Avalanche more than holds it own.

Any of these vehicles is an excellent choice for people in the market for a powerful, comfortable, versatile pick-up truck with good resale value.
