Yes, we have a case of the blues. And we couldn’t be happier. Why? The 2012 Kelley Blue Book Best Resale Value Awards were just announced.
When people are in the market for a new vehicle, high resale value is often a major consideration. After all, depreciation is a new car owner’s biggest expense and choosing a vehicle with better resale value will leave you money ahead at trade-in time.
If this is something you consider, consider this: Kelley Blue Book’s kbb.com just recognized Chevy’s outstanding achievements in producing vehicles that best retain their value over the first five years of new-vehicle ownership with their Best Resale Value Awards1. And the winners are:
- 2012 Camaro V6 (Sports Car)
- 2012 Camaro SS (High-Performance Car)
- 2012 Traverse (Full-Size Utility Vehicle)
- 2012 Volt (Electric Car)
- 2012 Camaro (Top 10 Overall)
As you can see Camaro, in any form, is a high performance sports machine offering a great dollar-to-horsepower ratio during its first five years on the road. Traverse’s superb combination of comfort, capability and eight-passenger seating2 adds up to an incredible residual value rating and the best full-size utility vehicle winner. The eco-friendly Volt takes the electric car category thanks in part to its Voltec propulsion system, a unique technology combining an electric motor with an internal-combustion engine/generator. This innovation allows for driving on electricity only or using both electricity and gas.
