Yet that’s precisely what happens to many vehicles after depreciation eats away at the value of your asset over time. Consider it the rusting of your capital expenditure.And as much as you might love and cherish your new vehicle today, there will inevitably come a time when you want or have to sell. That’s when “resale” value becomes important, because the more you collect from the sale of your used vehicle a few years from now, the less you will lose in the original purchase. Depreciation is usually the single highest expense in the first few years of ownership; while no vehicle is immune from this corrosion – save for rare cars with limited production – buyers can cut their losses by selecting vehicles that depreciate slowest.In the U.S., Kelley Blue Book analyzes those vehicles. The firm examines current vehicle data, sales data, market conditions, competition and other factors to arrive at the top 10 vehicles with the best resale five years from now, assigning each a percentage value of what their vehicle is worth at three years and five years. With Canadian buying patterns similar to the U.S., the KBB results reveal which 2017 vehicles should return to their owners an average 50 percent of the original purchase price after five years. The all-new Honda Ridgeline continues to offer truck-like ability in a smaller, more nimble package than most full-size trucks. The second-gen Ridgeline can tow 2,268 kilograms, carry 713 kilograms and gets decent fuel economy, too, with a highway rating of 9.5 L/100 km. Pricing starts at $36,590.Resale value at 36 months: 64.4 per centResale value at 60 months: 47.6 per cent8.
