Which Car & Truck Segments Showing Price Strength Entering Spring?

New data from Black Book shows the price strength or weakness of certain cars and trucks as we enter spring. According to the data, Full-Size Crossover/SUVs, Full-Size Pickups, Small Pickups, and Full-Size Vans are retaining their values the strongest since February; while Sub-Compact Crossovers, Compact Luxury CUV/SUVs, Mid-Size Luxury CUV/SUVs, and Sub-Compact Luxury CUVs are seeing their prices decline the most.

 

Most car segments, while not at the higher end of the spectrum on price strength, are closer to stronger price retention signaling that the spring market is close to arrival.
