When you make an investment in a new vehicle, you definitely want to get your money’s worth, right?
Then it’s no surprise that two of our most popular vehicles give our customers the most value: Jeep® Wrangler and Ram 2500 pickup.
That’s a fact backed up by Edmunds.com 2016 Best Retained Value® Awards. Both vehicles were tops in their respective segments: mid-size traditional SUV for the Wrangler and heavy-duty truck for the 2500 pickup.
Edmunds.com highlights just how important long-term value is for car shoppers:
“Smart car shoppers will choose vehicles with high retained value so they can maximize their worth at trade-in or sale. And for consumers who lease, selecting cars with strong resale value is just as important: Resale value is a key factor in determining the monthly lease payment.”
In addition to Wrangler and 2500 taking the top spot in their segments, we had several vehicles show their value with honorable mentions:
- Large Car: Dodge Charger
- Entry Sports Car: Dodge Challenger
- Small Commercial Van: Ram ProMaster City
- Large Commercial Van: Ram ProMaster Cargo Van
Now, we’d like to hear from you. In addition to long-term value, what other key factors influence your new vehicle shopping decisions?
