Which FCA models retain the most value? Recently J.D. Power released their 2018 J.D. Power Resale Value Award, which recognizes the best resale value across 24 model-level vehicle segments. J.D. Power provides consumer insights, advisory services and data and analytics. Many car-buyers know the J.D. Power name because of its association with satisfaction and vehicle dependability awards.
To choose the winners, 244 vehicle models were evaluated using a sample of over 650,000 transactions with an average of 3,500 data points assed on each vehicle. The award selection process also considers used vehicle wholesale prices (the price a dealer pays for a used vehicle) and then these prices are divided by the vehicle’s original purchase price. The calculations used are based on wholesale records from January through June 2018 for models that are three years old (2015 model year).
The following models were recognized for their ability to retain their value:
- Highest Resale Value Industry-wide: Ram 3500 Heavy Duty
- Highest Resale Value Midsize Sporty Car segment: Dodge Challenger
- Highest Resale Value Large Car segment: Dodge Charger
- Highest Resale Value Compact SUV segment: Jeep Wrangler
