Winners will be announced on November 7, 2018.

“For years, our Truck Blue Book analyst team has been working with major financial institutions to calculate reliable residual values for commercial trucks,” explained Dan Smith, managing director for Price Digests. “The Highest Retained Value Awards represent an opportunity for us to share this expertise in truck valuation, a service provided since the 1940s, with the larger trucking industry. It’s a natural extension of our core mission to provide data solutions that drive better asset decisions.”

The awards cover nine categories within Class 4-8 trucks, ranging from medium to heavy-duty models. Major manufacturers included in the list of finalists include Freightliner, Volvo, and Peterbilt.
