Our GMC Depreciation Analysis and Recommendations

GMC ranks #1 in value retention among full-sized trucks and SUVs, and #4 overall of all popular vehicle manufacturers. The GMC Sierra 1500 was the star performer within the GMC line, as it ranked as the #2 vehicle of all popular models at the 5-year mark. GMC ranks well ahead of its direct competitors for value retention in this full-size segment.

The 2018, 2017 & 2014 GMC model years are currently the best values in our opinion.

On average, expect to pay only 69% of the original cost with 83% of the vehicle's lifetime remaining for a 2018 GMC. That gives it a Net Used Value® score of 13.93 which factors in annual maintenance costs, price decline, reliable years left and available inventory.

Also consider the 2017 & 2014 model years. Those currently have a generally low risk of any significant depreciation over the next several years.

While we would advise holding onto this vehicle for a few years, that's not always the plan. Dealers have access to similar figures so they know that your vehicle has a low risk of depreciation.
