#7 - Resale value
Kelly Blue Book ranks the Jeep Wrangler 3rd on it's 2014 Best Resale Value list. They say, "The Jeep Wrangler is not only the world's most famous off-roader, but it's a perennial resale value standout."
And here's a review by the editors of Kelley Blue Book
''After decades of development and history, the 2014 Jeep Wrangler SUV remains faithfully true to its hard-earned and thoroughly-deserved reputation as the universal standard for off-road vehicles. The Jeep Wrangler line offers something for everybody, from a basic 2-door Sport with a soft top, to the go-where-the-trails-aren't Rubicon. If you need more room the longer Wrangler Unlimited offers four doors and other features, but with the same level of off-road prowess. The engine is Chrysler's highly-commendable 3.6-liter Pentastar V6, which delivers plenty of power and noteworthy fuel economy, and the Wrangler is also one of the few remaining vehicles that's available with a manual transmission. That's why we named it one of the 10 Best SUVs Under $25,000 for 2014."
Forbes has the Jeep Wrangler listed as the #1 car to trade in now for maximum return.
But who in their right mind would sell their Jeep? I guess, if I were buying another Jeep, I would.
"The original SUV traditionally commands among the highest resale values in the industry, particularly in relatively unadorned versions that off-road enthusiasts covet to customize with aftermarket add-ons. A model year 2008 two-door Wrangler having clocked 46,500 miles in top condition is estimated to return a whopping 90% of its original retail price in trade-in value. the four-door Wrangler Unlimited version fares slightly better, holding onto 91% of its MSRP according to NADA Guides. By comparison the off-road ready Rubicon versions - which can be too rough for casual owners - retain 77% & 84% of their original sticker price."
Autotrader dot com says, "If you're looking for a car that will hold its value, consider a Jeep Wrangler.
