2019 Jeep Wrangler, Vehicles With Best Resale Value

2019 Jeep Wrangler

When considering the cost of a new vehicle, most consumers take into account the purchase price of the car or truck, and maybe the cost of fuel, insurance, and maintenance.

10 Vehicles With The Worst Resale Value

Rarely considered by new-car shoppers is resale value. Yet it is resale value that can have the most profound impact on the overall cost of owning and operating a vehicle.

For example, consider that a $25,000 compact car that depreciates only 40 percent over five years will bring $5000 more at trade-in time than will a similar car that depreciates 60 percent. Trade-in-value spreads of that magnitude are not uncommon.

Here we’ll look at the top resale-value performers as reported by ISeeCars.com. ISeeCars calculates the new-car value of vehicles it analyzes by looking back on the average asking price for a given model as listed on its site five years ago. Those values are compared to prices of the same vehicles now listed as used on the site.

In this manner, ISeeCars avoids having to allow for the impact of incentives or dealer discounting, as those factors would be represented in the vehicle’s asking price.

Note

  • As you often hear in commercials for investment products, past performance is no guarantee of future results. While the vehicles on this list are likely to remain strong performers in the used-car market, design changes, gas prices, and drifting consumer sentiment could reduce the value of these rides at an accelerated pace in the coming years.
  • Per the ISeeCars.com report, the average car retains 50.2 percent of its value after five years.
