Full-Size Pickup, Heavy Duty 1 Ton


2012 Chevrolet Silverado 3500

With this heavy duty segment, it's not surprising that the Chevrolet Silverado 3500 stomped the competition, winning the Vincentric Best Value in America award for the third year in a row. With its low cost to insure and low depreciation costs, this 1 ton machine delivered a ton of value, although the competition from  Ram showed that the segment will be a tough battleground in coming years.
