Toyota Models Demonstrate Outstanding Retained Value
Often, one of the scariest parts of buying a new car is trying to figure out which new car will last the longest, and give you the best value – and resale value! – a few years down the road. While it’s impossible to know for sure when you buy a new car, Edmunds.com is helping drivers everywhere figure out which models are likeliest to pay off in the long run with their Best Retained Value awards. These awards, according to Edmunds.com, “recognize the brands and 2015 models that have the highest projected residual values after five years based on their average Edmunds.com True Market Value (TMV) price when sold new.” And when the experts at Edmunds.com determined which cars were likeliest to retain their value, one brand stood out – Toyota.
Toyota was named the overall top non-luxury brand in terms of retained value. This overall title is a great pointer for buyers who might not know exactly what type of car they want, but are sure they want a model from a reliable automaker that will retain its value over the years. And for those who do have a pretty good idea of what they want, Toyota will still be a great option, thanks to its overall value and the four models that won their segments. The 2015 Toyota Tacoma and the 2015 Toyota Tundra beat out competitors in the Midsize Truck and Large Truck categories, respectively. And when it comes to smaller or more versatile vehicles, drivers can look to the 2015 Toyota Highlander for the best retained value in Midsize SUVs, and the 2015 Toyota Avalon, winner of the Large Car segment. So whether you aren’t quite sure what kind of car is right for your family, or you have your heart set on something large and powerful like a 2015 Toyota truck, Madras, Le Pine, Terrebonne, and other local drivers can find a great car that will retain its value at Kendall Toyota of Bend.
