Wrangler on Kelley top ten resale list

The 2013 Jeep Wrangler was No. 3 on Kelley Blue Book’s Top Ten list in the latest Best Resale Value Awards.

According to kbb.com, the 2013 Wrangler is estimated to hold 67.6% of its original list price after three years and 55.4% of its value after five years. The Wrangler Unlimited was also second in the Mid-Size SUV/Crossover category.

This the second consecutive win for the Wrangler.

The kbb.com editors said, “Today’s Jeep Wrangler is the most comfortable, most capable model in the long history of the icon, and a resale value standout.”

The awards are based on projections from the Kelley Blue Book Official Residual Value Guide and honor those vehicles expected to maintain the greatest proportion of their original list price after five years of ownership.

“The iconic Wrangler leads the Jeep brand’s residual values,” said Eric Ibara, director of residual consulting for Kelley Blue Book. “Not only does Jeep Wrangler command a significant amount as a used vehicle but it does so consistently year after year. Not surprisingly, Wrangler again finds itself on Kelley Blue Book’s Top 10 list.”

“Jeep has continued to make the Wrangler better in every way, and we’re delighted that it has once again been recognized by Kelley Blue Book and consumers alike as a tremendous value,” said Jeep CEO Mike Manley. “Wrangler sales for the year are up nearly 20 percent because customers know they’re getting ultimate capability in a more fuel-efficient package suitable for everyday driving, that will retain its value for years to come.”

The Dodge Charger and Chrysler 300 finished second and third, respectively, in the full-size car category
