It’s easy to compare prices when you’re ready to buy a new truck. But when it’s time to pay for it, there’s another big factor to consider: the resale value of your old truck. The more your old truck is worth, the more money you can put toward your new one. Even if you’re planning to keep your truck until it falls apart, a higher resale value will help you out if your circumstances change or the vehicle is written off by an insurance company.
That’s why we’re highlighting 10 trucks with the best resale value, meaning the percentage of their original value they retain when it’s time to resell them later. Various researchers calculate resale value in different ways, and our selections (listed in approximately descending order) reflect the general consensus among different sources. Any new vehicle, especially an expensive pickup truck, will depreciate over its lifetime. But these should retain the greatest percentage of their value.
