Based on auction observations and dealer feedback, the Black Book editors noticed a reversal of the typical pattern of depreciation over the last few months, with car segments averaging lighter than normal depreciation and trucks feeling higher depreciation. Additionally, dealers from around the country are finding it harder to spot clean-condition vehicles at auction.
“A broad drop in values across all car segments was led by the Entry Level Cars. Pickup trucks and Full Size Van truck segments continue to hold values well,” said Anil Goyal, Vice President of Automotive Valuation and Analytics.
