The vehicles of 2022 with the best resale values

2022 Toyota Tundra TRD Pro nose

According to the Kelley Blue Book, no vehicle holds its value more than the 2022 Toyota Tundra.

With the cost of new cars, trucks, minivans and SUVs averaging $47,148 as of May 2022, consumers cannot be blamed for wanting a vehicle that retains its value more than others, especially for those who own their vehicle usually trade in every few years.

If you’re looking for vehicles that have a superior residual value, Kelley Blue Book’s 20th Annual Best Resale Value Awards is a good place to start. KBB is one of the automotive industry’s used car valuation leaders and has published its list of new cars, trucks, minivans and SUVs that are expected to retain the highest percentage of their original price as used cars.

Some brands have better resales than others

But not all brands are the same.

Both Lexus and Toyota are considered the brands with the highest resale value.

“New car buyers who buy from Toyota or its sibling from the luxury brand Lexus – our winners of Best Resale Value Brand 2022 – can be assured that their vehicle will hold its value quite well over time,” said Janice Yoell, Sr Manager of Valuations for Kelley Blue Book. “Toyota and Lexus are each the best vehicle and luxury brands for 2022 in terms of highest average projected resale value across their entire lineup.”

For Toyota, 2022 marks the sixth year for Best Resale Value: Brand and the third for Lexus for Best Resale Value: Luxury Brand.

However, of the top 10 vehicles retained, Ford tied with Toyota with three vehicles each in the top 10. General Motors has two, Stellantis and Tesla each have one.

Why it matters

new cars
Which vehicle you choose can make a big financial difference when trading in?

The value of your vehicle counts at the time of the trade-in. Overall, KBB says that after five years with 75,000 miles on the clock and in average condition, the average 2022 model year vehicle will retain 43% of its original value.

That means your new $45,000 car is worth $19,350 after five years. If you choose one of the vehicles in KBB’s top 10 that are likely to have a residual value of 56% or more, you’ll end up with a vehicle worth between $25,200 and $31,500 or more.

Remember that market conditions affect resale value as prices fluctuate with market demand. These values ​​are therefore guidelines at best. But which vehicles are resale stars? Just look.
