Kelley Blue Book Ranks Top 25 Used Cars

Kelley Blue Book Ranks Top 25 Used Cars Based on Traffic to Their Information Pages at

Posted on Auto Remarketing by Editor Joe Overby

On Monday, the Michigan Wolverines and Kansas Jayhawks became the latest in a revolving door of teams taking the No. 1 spots in the NCAA men's college basketball rankings this season.

But consistency seems to be the name of the game in the used-car market. The Honda Accord has continued its reign as the used car pulling in the most online traffic for Kelley Blue Book, and though there were some moves on the list, much of the 25 most-researched used vehicles on this month held steady from December.  

Same as last month, the Honda  Accord and Honda Civic took spots one and two, respectively, and were followed by the Toyota Camry (No. 3), Ford F-150 (No.4) and Toyota Corolla (No. 5).

The Chevrolet Silverado 1500, which was No. 8 in December, moved up to sixth this month. It switched places with the Nissan Altima. Placing seventh again was the BMW 3 Series.

Also swapping spots were the Ford F-250/F-350/F-450 Super Duty (moving from No. 10 to No. 9) and the Ford Mustang.  

These were two of the eight Ford models on the list; no other automaker had more.

Honda was represented by four vehicles, while Chevrolet and Toyota each had three. Jeep and Dodge combined for three spots.

There were two Nissan models to make the list; Volkswagen and a BMW each had one.

The complete top 25 is as follows:

  1.   Honda Accord
  2.   Honda Civic
  3.   Toyota Camry
  4.   Ford F-150
  5.   Toyota Corolla
  6.   Chevrolet Silverado 1500
  7.   BMW 3-Series
  8.   Nissan Altima
  9.   Ford F-250/F-350/F-450 Super Duty
  10.   Ford Mustang
  11.   Jeep Grand Cherokee
  12.   Jeep Wrangler
  13.   Volkswagen Jetta
  14.   Toyota Tacoma
  15.   RAM 1500
  16.   Ford Focus

  20.   Ford Escape

Ditto, great info! I'll be using this as blog fodder on many client sites.

Great info! Interesting and ironic that the F-150 and Silverado weren't closer to the top, since they lead in NEW vehicle sales. Also great empirical data for a GM or UCM contemplating their used car mix. . .
