According to Carfax, most vehicles depreciate in value by up to 20 percent annually. Thus, when buying a vehicle -- especially pickups -- it is important to determine its resale value. While some trucks may lose their value over time, others hold their resale value.
For example, 2WD pickups are not desirable in terms of resale value. On the other hand, resale value is typically strongest on mid-level trims, according to Anil Goyal, senior vice president of automotive valuations and analytics at Black Book.
With that said, here is the list of heavy-duty trucks with the best resale value according to KBB.com.
***The GMC Sierra Denali HD retains 57.4 percent of its value after 60 months. It is built on the same platform as the Silverado, adding luxury and styling.
***The 2018 Chevy Silverado HD is included in the list, with 57.3 percent of its value retained in five years. It includes the ¾-ton and 1-ton pickups.
***The RAM HD comes as third in the list and includes the 2500 and 3500 trims. KBB.com reports that it is expected to retain its resale value at 54.9 percent after five years.
***The Ford F-Series Super Duty, which includes the F-250, F-350 and similar models. The Super Duty retains its resale value at 52.8 percent after five years.
***The Nissan Titan XD, which is expected to retain 40.3 percent of its value after 60 months, offers gas and diesel engine options.
