Hail to the king: The Toyota Tacoma has topped KBB’s best resale list for the past 5 years

For the 5th year in a row, 4x4s have dominated Kelley Blue Book’s best resale list. In fact, of the 10 vehicles on the list, nine are trucks and SUVs.

Here’s the 2019 list:

VehicleResale value after 60 months
2019 Toyota Tacoma62.2%
2019 Jeep Wrangler58.3%
2019 Toyota Tundra56.9%
2019 GMC Sierra56.7%
2019 Toyota 4Runner56.3%
2019 Chevrolet Silverado53.7%
2019 Honda Ridgeline51.3%
2019 Chevrolet Colorado50.9%
2019 Ford F-Series50.6%
2019 Porsche Macan50.0%

As usual, the mighty Tacoma topped the list, a position it has occupied for the past 5 years. According to KBB, excellent build quality and good ol’ Toyota reliability make the midsize truck unmatched in resale value. So much so that the Taco retains almost 70% of its value after 36 months of first owner use, and over 62% after 60 months.

The second spot is a different story. This year, Jeep managed to wrangle the position away from Tundra thanks to high consumer satisfaction for the Wrangler. As for the sole outlier on the list, the Porsche Macan managed to unseat the Subaru WRX to claim the 10th spot.

So if you’re in the market for a new truck with the best resale value, look no further than KBB’s list.
