Price Digests, the leading B2B provider of vehicle data for over 100 years, announced finalists for the first Price Digests Highest Retained Value Awards, a new annual industry awards program based on residual values for commercial trucks. Winners will be announced on Nov. 7.

"For years, our Truck Blue Book analyst team has been working with major financial institutions to calculate reliable residual values for commercial trucks," said Dan Smith, managing director for Price Digests. "The Highest Retained Value Awards represent an opportunity for us to share this expertise in truck valuation, a service provided since the 1940s, with the larger trucking industry. It's a natural extension of our core mission to provide data solutions that drive better asset decisions."

The awards cover nine categories within Class 4-8 trucks, ranging from medium to heavy-duty models. Major manufacturers included in the list of finalists include Freightliner, Volvo, and Peterbilt. Winners will represent the model series in each category determined to retain the highest percentage of their original value over a five-year period.

The full list of 2019 Price Digests Highest Retained Value Award finalists, including the methodology used to determine program winners, can be viewed here.
