Vincentric used a comprehensive analysis of fleet lifecycle costs to identify the best fleet values in the industry. The eight cost factors that determined overall lifecycle costs were depreciation, fuel, insurance, opportunity cost, financing, maintenance, taxes and state fees, and repairs. These costs were integrated with the Vincentric Fleet Price, which estimates the acquisition cost for each vehicle in the study.
This year's awards mark the second consecutive year the Chevrolet Silverado and the GMC Sierra ¾ ton pickup trucks won the Best Fleet Value in America awards. Additionally, this is the third consecutive year the Chevrolet Express Cargo Van and the Chevrolet Silverado and the GMC Sierra ½ ton pickups won the award.
