Kelly Blue Books has released their 2019 list of vehicles with the best resale value, and once again they’re all trucks with one extra.
This might not come as a surprise to anyone, but trucks are a highly valued commodity in the United States. They’re tough, rugged, and the people that want to own one are willing to pay top dollar, even if that truck has been lovingly abused by its former owner.
So this year’s list of vehicles that retain the most value is unsurprisingly filled to the brim with pickups, along with one surprise from Porsche. We’ll get to that in a minute, but first, we have the list.
At number one for the fifth year in a row is the Toyota Tacoma. This mid-size pickup has been a dominant force for years and remains the most dependable small pickup in the US. It’s also still available with a 6-speed manual in 2019, which is getting harder and harder to come by.
Coming in at number two is the Jeep Wrangler. Jeeps are always in high demand, and Fiat Chrysler’s recent redesign just gives Jeep lovers more of what they want: topless, door-less, 4-wheel-drive fun.
Number three is last year’s number two spot, which is the Toyota Tundra. Toyota’s full-size pickup is still a fantastic ride and rates higher than its domestic competitors for resale, although it’s still dominated in the sales department by the high-volume Ford F-Series, which came in at number nine on the list.
The GMC Sierra moves up a spot to sit at number 4, being considered generally better than it’s Chevrolet counterpart, the Silverado, which retains its number 6 position. Number five is the only SUV on this list, the Toyota 4Runner, which continues to see strong support from its fans.
Slot seven is the Honda Ridgeline, the only Honda to make the list, while eight is the Chevy Colorado. Ford’s F-150 drops two slots to sit at number nine, and the Porsche Macan edges out the Subaru WRX to take the number ten spot for resale value.
