Jeep Wrangler and Dodge Charger Win Kelley Blue Book’s 2019 Best Resale Value Awards

Each year, Kelley Blue Book hires a staff of automotive analysts tasked with determining which vehicles in their respective classes will maintain the greatest proportion of their original list price after five years of ownership. The 2019 Jeep Wrangler (Off-Road SUV/Crossover) and Dodge Charger (Full-Size Car) topped their classes this year.

“Wrangler has been a perennial winner in Kelley Blue Book’s annual Best Resale Value Awards. Wrangler is the top dog in the newly created Off-Road SUV/Crossover category and has managed to maintain very high 60-month residual values, which also earns it a Top 10 award,” said Eric Ibara, director of residual values for Kelley Blue Book. “The Charger blends its unique style with performance into a one-of-a-kind offering that results in the highest resale values among full-size cars. It last won the segment in 2015, and the fact that it now tops the segment again in 2019 speaks to its strong appeal among American consumers.”

With standard options on each vehicle like the Wrangler’s combination of traction, ground clearance, maneuverability, articulation and water fording that give it its great Trail Rating or the innovative TorqueFlite eight-speed automatic transmission that comes standard on every Charger model, it’s easy to see the lasting value both lineups have to offer.
