2018 Truck and SUV will bring the best resale value of all vehicles


Further highlighting the new car buyers traditional passenger cars continue to decline in consumer trends, the industry’s most resale value car models are mainly pickup trucks and trucks SUV, the top 10 models only for the pull car Subaru WRX hatchback.

This is based on the Kelly Blue Book’s Best Residual Award, which states that an average of five years on average is expected to be the most valuable vehicle.

Eric Ibara, Head of Surplus Value at Kelley Blue Book, explains: “The top 10 vehicles winners are mostly trucks, which reflects the high demand for these models.Although there is a higher reward on trucks today, Of the manufacturers suggested retail price, willing to pay more for the truck, without the prospect of rising gasoline prices, this trend does not seem to slow down.
While the mainstream car brand KBB predicts the highest overall average resold / surplus value is Toyota, Porsche wins the highest honor of the luxury nameplate. In the accompanying slideshow, we showed a total of 10 cars with the highest total residual value and listed the best performance according to the categories below.

The average vehicle for the 2018 model is expected to retain only 35.1% of its original value after five years, meaning that today’s $ 30,000 ride will cost only $ 10,500 in 2022. In contrast, all of the top 10 models referenced by KBB are expected to maintain at least 46.2% of their original sticker price after five years and over $ 13,800 five years later. KBB’s top model in this area, the mid-sized Toyota Tacoma pickup, is expected to bring back 69.6% of its original retail price after five years. Well, an all-electric Chevrolet stud electric car is expected to retain 15.5% of its original capacity in five years, which is one of the best performing electric vehicles by KBB in 2018 (mainly because we suspect the electric car is resale).

Depreciation is usually the largest long-term ownership expense and can easily exceed insurance, fuel and maintenance costs. The resale value forecast is based on a wealth of economic factors, historical data and old supply and demand issues. As you can see from the list of categories below, various types of cars are on the decline in resale value compared to trucks. Keep in mind that the more expensive the vehicle, the more valuable the surplus value is because of the loss of more money.
More importantly, the car’s resale value should also be an important buyer of a new car or truck. This is because the monthly payment is mainly based on the difference between the vehicle transaction price and the forecast value at the end of the period and is financed at a fixed interest rate. Car manufacturers sometimes use cash dividends, or artificially raise the residual value or interest rates to help reduce leasing transactions, but the residual value is the biggest factor determining the lease payments.
