Chevy SS, no seriously think about it. If you can grab one for 20 % off there is no better car for the money. Bulletproof LS3 and it will very likely retain its value extremely well. Only downside would be fuel economy and parts being hard to find/expensive down the line. Second place goes to the Colorado. They are fantastic, that 3.6 is more of a car engine than a truck engine so its fun/quick to drive. They also look great, if I was in the market for a pick up, this would be it.
