Kelley Blue Book: 10 cars with the best resale value

This post was originally published on this site

Trucks and SUVs dominate the top of the resale value charts, and for the first time, no cars are represented in the top 10 slots of this list. While the average new vehicle will be worth about 39% of its original sticker price after 60 months, these 10 vehicles will return an average of about 55% to their owners’ pockets. For a $35,000 vehicle that works out to a meaningful difference of about $5,700 over a five-year buy-own-sell ownership cycle. That’s why choosing a car with good resale value can often save you more money in the long run than chasing big rebates and other incentives.
