Four of the best at retaining their 5-yr.value
are right here at Barnett

Well, this is something to boast about. If you’re looking to put up a good fight against your vehicle’s deprecation it helps to start with the right vehicle. For your consideration, we offer four of the best right here at our place.

How many years do you expect to get out of a brand-new vehicle, knowing that deprecation is the natural order of things? If you go about five years before making a switch, you’ll want to choose a car or truck that holds its value. In 2018, the average depreciation stands at 50% over a five-year period.

According to a study released this month by auto search engine iSeeCars, some vehicles barely lose 30% of that value over that span of time. For those thinking short-term with their next new-auto purchase, they listed the 15 models that retained the most value over five years. Here is what they had to say about the ones you’ll find at Barnett.

#15. Dodge Challenger. Five-year depreciation: 45.2%.
Following this most recent muscle-car revival, the models that came out of Detroit in 2018 would blow away anything the Big Three was producing 50 years ago…vehicles like the Hellcat that tops 700 horsepower. These upgrades (as well as the latest in-car tech) come at a premium, and the Dodge Challenger had kept its value after five years.

#10. Ram 1500. Five-year depreciation: 42.7%
Checking the used-vehicle listings, you’ll find lots of Ram trucks with over 300,000 miles. They’re built for the long haul, but if you decide to trade a Ram 1500 in after five years you’ll find you get a solid (57.3%) return on your money. During RAM Power Days, you can lease a brand-new LOADED 2019 RAM 1500 Laramie 4x4 for just $349 a month for 36 months.*

#2. Jeep Wrangler. Five-year depreciation: 27.3%
iSeeCars data showed only 27% depreciation on the two-door Wrangler after five years.
#1. Jeep Wrangler Unlimited. Five-year depreciation: 27.3%

The 2018 model year brought a new (“JL”) Wrangler Unlimited to the market, including an available turbo engine. Overall, Wrangler provides the same sort of thrills it has for decades. For buyers who might consider selling in five years, it also delivers incomparable resale value.
It’s Jeep Adventure Days, too, and you can lease a value-holding LOADED 2018 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited 4DR 4x4 for only $299 a month for 42 months.* You’ll also find incredible leases on 2019 Jeep Cherokee Limited and Cherokee Trailhawk, and on 2018 Grand Cherokee Laredo, Compass Trailhawk, and Renegade Trailhawk,
