10 Best And 10 Worst Vehicles When It Comes To Resale Value
Jerry Reynolds | January 21, 2020
Resale value is something you hear me talk about a lot on the Car Pro Show. I tend to recommend vehicles with great resale value, and not recommend vehicles with poor resale. I am quick to point out, however, that if you plan to keep a vehicle for a long time, resale value is not nearly as important.
The fact is, some vehicles do better than others by far. The research firm iSeeCars looked at 7.7 million new and used vehicle sales to determine which vehicles lose the most and least money over a five-year timeframe. Across the board, most new vehicles lose about half their value over five years. However, many do better, and many do worse.
Remember, too, resale has a lot to do with residual values if you are leasing. On the best resale list, Toyota and Jeep take the top five spots. In the worst resale category, four of the ten are all-electric cars.
Here are the best and the worst according to iSeeCars:
