10 of the Vehicles With Best Resale Value For 2017

What Are The Best Resale Value Cars Of 2017?

Updated November 9, 2018

Vehicle depreciation stands shoulder to shoulder with car owners’s biggest nightmares. There are precious few cars that can actually return or even multiply your investment. Like these 10 with great resale values, for instance. Most of them, however, tend to lose more than half of their worth in 5 years. And more than 30 percent in 3 years time, while we’re at it. So, buying a car isn’t just about picking the one that appeals to you the most. If you like to think yourself a future-savvy careful planner, you’ll take depreciation into serious consideration. Kelley Blue Book does that for us every year. They rank all models according to numerous data sets including current vehicle data, condition, sales data, expectations of the future economy, competitiveness of the vehicle in question’s segment, etc.

As you can imagine, SUV’s and pickup trucks often dominate such lists and 2017 is no different. Utes have always suffered less vehicle depreciation attrition, and in turn, boasted better resale value figures. Here are the 10 sure deals among 2017 year models that you might want to consider if you’re in a market for a new vehicle and hold resale value in high regard, according to KBB.

About Nikola Potrebić

Despite driving a piece of junk, Nikola still manages to survive the harrowing experience called "A road trip in a Yugo," day in, day out. On the other hand, precious few things move him as muscle cars do. Especially those from the bygone golden era, which makes him wonder why wasn't he born a few decades earlier? Well, at least he's been given the opportunity to enjoy the likes of the Pontiak Aztek, Chrysler PT Cruiser, Fiat Multipla, and other lovely millennials, right? Come to think of it, I'll stick with my Yugo. Thank you very much.
