2013 Chevrolet Silverado two-wheel drive extended cab work truck
Average selling price: $24,683
The second-best-selling vehicle in America behind the Ford F-Series usually doesn't need to beg for buyers, but General Motors (GM - Get Report) finds itself in a bit of a predicament. Last month, it announced that the Silverado and the Sierra are getting an overhaul for the first time since 2006. While that's great for the 2014 editions and their increased towing capacity and fuel efficiency, it's not so great for the weaker, gas-thirsty 2013 models. Back in December, GM had a 140-day supply of pickups in its lots, which is far beyond the two-month supply automakers consider healthy. Car buyers have been waiting on the updated models and slowing Silverado's sales growth to a paltry 0.8% last year. That lags well behind the 10% increase for the competing F-Series and is even more troubling considering the 20% surge in Dodge Ram sales last year. If you're one of the last Chevy truck buyers in the U.S. not holding out for the new Silverado, now may be a great time to go for a 2013.
