Chrysler resale value higher

by David Zatz on

Chrysler used to be known for poor resale value, as the company compensated for overproduction with huge rebates. Those days seem to be in the past, if Kelly’s Blue Book is any indication.

Two Mopars were on the overall top ten vehicles list for high resale value, the Jeep Wrangler (keeping 70% of its value after three years) and Dodge Challenger (keeping 61%). The list was still dominated by Toyota, but there were three Chevrolets and two Chryslers. Oddly, the list was topped by the unpopular Toyota FJ Cruiser.

In 2013, there was a single domestic vehicle on the list — the Jeep Wrangler, holding 68% of its value.

The resale values are projections based on the actual resale of older vehicles. KBB does not appear to provide a comparison of their projection to reality for older lists.
