This week’s Black Book Market Insights report shows increased depreciation in luxury vehicles. Trucks as a whole had a greater average depreciation this week as compared to cars. However, two vehicle segments within the truck segment had solid retention and even increased their values from last week.

“Active sales in most locations as some dealers sell off inventories before the end of the year while others buy selectively. Luxury vehicle prices dropped the most last week,” said Anil Goyal, Senior Vice President of Automotive Valuation and Analytics.

  •  Volume weighted, overall car segment values decreased by 0.42% last week, lower than the depreciation rate of 0.63% seen in the previous four weeks.
  • Prestige Luxury Car, Luxury Car and Premium Sporty Car segments declined the most by 1.32%, 1.07% and 0.73%, respectively.
  • Volume-weighted, overall truck segment (including pickups, SUVs and vans) values decreased by 0.53% last week, similar to the depreciation rate of 0.54% seen in the previous four weeks.
  • Full-Size Crossover/SUV and Full-Size Luxury Crossover/SUV segments declined the most by 1.24% and 1.08%, respectively
