There are several ways to approach the purchase of a new automobile, but one that many people don’t consider is how much the vehicle will be worth when they’re ready to sell it at some point down the road. We know, for example, that nearly all vehicles depreciate in value the moment they leave us here at Vicksburg Chrysler Dodge Jeep® RAM, but what may come as a surprise is that there are some models that depreciate in value much more slowly than others.
The 2015 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited is one of those vehicles, as it sees only a 7.1 percent decrease in value after the first twelve months of ownership, making it one of the slowest-depreciating vehicles in the entire industry. In fact, the average automobile loses 17 percent of its value in the first year, so the Jeep Wrangler is special in its ability to hold onto value much longer than other models.
Obviously this is a good thing for a whole host of reasons, not the least of which is that when a consumer goes to trade in his or her old vehicle for a new one, a higher value for the previous model means lower monthly payments for the new one.
Beyond that, though, this information suggests that the Jeep Wrangler is a well-built and in-demand vehicle that holds up well over time and that drivers never seem to tire of it, even after years of wear and tear. We are thrilled that our models hold so much of their value for so long. It’s just one more reason to consider buying a Jeep SUV for your next vehicle.
