When the Chevy Silverado HD was named truck of the year, owners of a 2011 Chevrolet Silverado 2500HD were being told what they already knew. That is far as a truck by truck comparison went, the 2011 Chevy HD king of the hill.
And the 2011 Chevrolet Silverado 2500HD and other HD Silverado's aren't just heavy duty, they high definition heavy duty. Just looking at them says 'this is a work truck' a truck that makes all those used trucks for sale in Houston look smaller.
But as Chevy takes their seat as this year's truck king and prepares to roll out next years models like the 2012 Colorado truck, Chevrolet probably isn't feeling it as high a perch as normal. Demand took a huge dip in May due to high gas prices and limited competition to spur higher 2011 Chevrolet rebates and incentives.
The building and homes industry continues to flounder as well, making potential owners of a Chevrolet Silverado 1500 for sale a bit scarcer. Fuel economy is mattering more as well, making smaller pickups like the 2012 Colorado a truck more desirable in its own way then a Chevy Silverado SS for sale.
Chevy is hoping that with falling fuel cost, shoppers will flock back to stores in time for the Summer Sales and 4th of July. And while 2011 Chevrolet rebates are starting to get rolled out to grease the slopes for a smooth return for buyers, new and used trucks for sale in Houston shoppers are still likely to be more leery than dealerships would like.
Just as buyers know that if they wait fuel cost will come down again sometime, potential owners know that if they hold out on using that Chevy new car locator a while longer there will be more cheap new and used trucks for sale as model years begin to change over.
Interest for limited number models like finding a Chevy Silverado SS for sale are not likely to change much, but smart shoppers of new cars are likely to dig into the truck comparison tool and start weighing the value of each model to the smallest amount of value before using the Chevy new car locator and running to ground best deals.
So hail to the king Chevy, you deserve it. Just know that shoppers are going to be less impressed by that crown until you put that Chevrolet Silverado 1500 for sale. Otherwise, the real ruler is still cheap used trucks for sale. Cost is king, and value is still the Queen. Now more than ever.
