Toyota won Best Resale Value: Brand from the Kelley Blue Book for the sixth time in the past nine years, and company sibling Lexus won Best Resale Value: Luxury Brand for the third time overall.
On Monday, KBB released its 20th annual best resale value awards, which highlight the 2022 model year vehicles that are expected to retain the most value over the first five years of ownership.
In addition to the aforementioned overall brand winners, the Best Resale Value awards recognize individual models with the most anticipated retention across 24 segments.
Prizes also include a list of the top 10 vehicles with the highest expected resale value.
Toyota also won Best Resale Value: Brand honors in 2014, 2017, 2018, 2019 and 2021.
“New car buyers buying from Toyota or its luxury brand sibling Lexus – our 2022 Best Resale Value winners – can be assured that their vehicle should hold its value quite well over time,” Janice said. Yoell, Senior Director of Assessments for Kelley Blue Book, in a press release.
“Toyota and Lexus, respectively, are the top vehicle brand and the top luxury brand for 2022 in terms of the highest average projected resale value across their entire lineups. Trucks and SUVs continue to dominate among 10 Best Vehicles, including an all-new Best Resale Value winner this year with the Ford Maverick Compact Pickup – which was also named Best New Model for 2022 by Kelley Blue Book,” Yoell said.
“It’s also notable that one electrified vehicle – the Tesla Model X – made the top 10, another indication of how electrified vehicles are becoming more commonplace in today’s market.”
