Volvo and Chevrolet Trucks Win in Multiple Categories

Tuscaloosa, AL and San Diego, CA, October 23, 2022 – Price Digests, the leading vehicle values and specs data provider for more than 100 years, today announces the winners of the 4th annual Price Digests Highest Retained Value Awards (HRVA). This is the only industry awards program that leverages third-party, unbiased, data-driven residual values of commercial trucks to recognize those that best hold their value. Price Digests is powered by The Truck Blue Book.

The prestigious Price Digests HRVA awards are presented in nine categories honoring Class 3-8 commercial trucks, ranging from light to heavy-duty models. The winners represent the 2022 model series projected to retain the highest percentage of their original value during a five-year period.

Jessica Carr, Price Digests Director of Data and Analytics, says the impact of Covid-19 supply chain woes changed the trajectory of retained value, keeping it higher than in years past.  “This year, we’ve seen higher retained values across the board for Heavy and Medium Duty trucks.  We expect the supply chain issues to continue to keep prices higher than normal during the next two to three years, especially for heavy and medium duty commercial trucks, so the investments people and companies make in their trucks will remain high.”  Price Digests monitors new and used truck values each month, with data analysts updating its Truck Blue Book data to ensure accurate values, VIN decoding and specifications.

The HRVA awards are part of Price Digests’ commitment to providing independent, accurate, reliable information. “We’re empowering truck dealers, buyers, insurers, lenders, and others by providing  reliable data that helps them make informed decisions. Understanding retained value is just one way we enable them to use data as a competitive advantage,” says Dan Smith, Price Digests Sales Director.  Winners of the HRVA Awards are being honored at the American Transportation Association’s MCE Conference in San Diego, with individual trophy presentations.
