2017 GMC Canyon, Sierra Win Kelley Blue Book Best Resale Value Awards
Things designed and built to a higher standard are often valued for life -- and that includes GMC’s professional-grade pickups.
A professional-grade tool is valued for years, long after it leaves the factory and finds a new home. The same can be said of a professional-grade pickup, as shown by both the 2017 GMC Sierra full-size pickup and 2017 GMC Canyon small pickup truck are in the top ten of Kelly Blue Book’s Best Resale Value Awards for 2017.
Now in its fifteenth year, Kelley Blue Book’s annual Best Resale Value Awards recognize vehicles for having higher projected retained values than comparable vehicles in their class or segment.
“A vehicle’s resale value is of critical importance to customers, because a vehicle with high resale value will typically be less expensive to own over time than a similar vehicle with poorer resale value,” said Jack Nerad, executive editorial director and executive market analyst for Kelley Blue Book’s KBB.com.
Resale values are based on projections published in the Kelley Blue Book Official Residual Value Guide, and reflect projected future auction values for vehicles with 75,000 miles at the end of a five-year lease or initial ownership period.
“Canyon and Sierra alike are known for delivering premium-grade appointments and unparalleled performance to our customers,” said Tony DiSalle, vice president of GMC marketing, “As Kelley Blue Book attests, that reputation for being designed and crafted to a higher standard allows both our pickup trucks to hold their value throughout their life.”
Both Canyon and Sierra offer customers even more in the 2017 model year. The 2017 Canyon is now available with an upgraded 3.6-liter V-6, which is paired with a new eight-speed automatic transmission. Canyon is also available with a 2.8-liter Duramax diesel engine, which offers both stout torque and an EPA estimated at mpg highway in two-wheel drive models. The 2017 Sierra 1500 continues to offer a bold, distinctive appearance, premium interior appointments, and advanced connectivity. 2017 Sierra HD models are now available with a new, thoroughly redesigned Duramax Diesel turbo-diesel V-8 engine, which offers 445 hp and 910 lb-ft of torque.
