KBB and ALG Top Resale Values for Vehicles and Car Brands

Found this article today and I found it quite interesting but not surprising:

Quote:
LOS ANGELES Toyota is a safe brand choice for buyers seeking top resale value, two firms that predict expected depreciation in vehicles said Monday.

Toyota, along with its premium division Lexus, was named tops for residual value overall by Kelley Blue Book for the third year in a row. The other agency, ALG, said Toyota had the top resale-value vehicles in eight segments, more than from any other automaker. Both always issue their predictions on the eve of the media preview of the Los Angeles Auto Show, which starts Wednesday.

In addition, KBB's top vehicle among all 2014 nameplates for retaining its value was Toyota's FJ Cruiser, an off-road vehicle that's due to go out of production in a year. It's expected to retain 70% of its original value after five years.

Toyota officials predictably reacted with glee."With some of the best residual values in the industry, Toyota customers can sleep at night knowing that they have made a sound investment," said Toyota Group Vice President Bill Fay in a statement.

Expected resale value can be a top consideration for new-car buyers. But it's not just a function of how good or popular a model is considered. Strong resale value also is best among vehicles that sold for close to their list prices without a lot of sales incentives or other discounts.

FJ's top listing "is testament that Toyota has limited volume of its vehicles," says Eric Ibara, director of residual consulting for KBB. It also points to how trucks are outperforming cars, which often are sold at greater discounts.

After FJ comes Toyota's Tacoma pickup, off-roaders Jeep Wrangler and Toyota 4Runner, and a sports car, the Chevrolet Corvette.

At the bottom are electric vehicles, which are distorted in the listings because they're often sold with federal tax incentives of up to $7,500, and luxury sedans.

For its top choices, ALG lauded not only Toyota, but Audi and Honda. It noted Mercedes-Benz, too, as a top performer in the luxury category when it comes to resale value.

"Toyota, Audi and Honda captured the most segment honors due to the consistent high value of all their products," said ALG President Larry Dominique in a statement.

Kelley Blue Books' list of top vehicles for retaining value, and the amount they're predicted to retain after five years:

1. FJ Cruiser 70.0%
2. Toyota Tacoma 61.9%
3. Jeep Wrangler 59.1%
4. Toyota 4Runner 56.2%
5. Chevrolet Corvette 53.5%
6. Toyota Tundra 52.3%
7. Chevrolet Camaro 51.9%
8. Honda CR-V 50.7%
9. Chevrolet Silverado 1500 50.6%
10. Dodge Challenger 50.5%

KBB's list of top vehicles for predicted resale value by segment:

Are there any sites that show best retained value from the 5 to 10 year mark?

All pretty agreeable except Land Rover Range Rover Sport.

Who the hell is gonna pay much for a 5 year old Range Rover Sport as supposed to something like..... a 5 year old Lexus LX460 without the 3rd row option?

Not surprising at all. I would have swapped #1 and #2 but interesting to hear about low production numbers from Toyota. Great way to build demand and not to mention that the product is great as well. The domestic guys shoulda figured this one out years ago.

I've always said that if I had to buy a brand new vehicle I would choose the Tacoma 100% of the time.

Not sure if I can agree with this one:

Quote:
ENTRY-LEVEL LUXURY CAR: Lexus ES 350
ES that are half to 1 year usually get discounted quite heavily.
While as compare to the IS2/350...it maintains it resale value a lot higher.

Not a single fuck was given for Mercedes or BMW. Another car that should be on the list is the Audi R8, the resale on the R8's is pretty damn good for an exotic.
