Another batch of high resale vehicles

Here at Barnett we now have four additional vehicles noted for their high resale value. 

These four have been awarded a 2018 J.D. Power Resale Value Award, recognizing the best resale value across 24 model-level vehicle segments. Ram 3500 Heavy Duty pickup trucks won for having the highest resale value in the entire industry. Dodge Challenger, Charger, and Jeep Wrangler won in their respective segments for having exceptional resale value. 

(NOTE: Earlier this month, the search engine iSeeCars listed Challenger, Ram, Wrangler, and Wrangler Unlimited among the vehicles with the highest percentage of retained value after five years; the Jeeps being #1 and #2.)

For the 2018 J.D. Power Award we’re discussing now, 244 vehicle models were evaluated using a sample of over 650,000 transactions with an average of 3,500 data points assessed on each vehicle. The award selection process utilizes used vehicle wholesale prices, which represent how much a dealer buys a used vehicle for. These prices are then divided by the vehicle’s original purchase price. These calculations are based on wholesale records from January through June 2018 for vehicles that are three years old. For the 2018 calculation, 2015 is the applicable model year.
Ram Truck builds America's longest-lasting pickups, proving a commitment to quality, reliability and durability. For 2018, Ram continues to offer incredible capability in three-quarter and one-ton pickups with 31,210 lbs. of towing, 7,390 lbs. of payload and 930 lb.-ft. of torque. Ram Heavy Duty offers more innovative features and better ride quality than competitors’ trucks, made possible by a five-link coil suspension or optional air suspension on Ram 2500 and a supplemental air bag suspension option on Ram 3500.
Building on the success of the Challenger in 2018, Dodge launches the most powerful SRT Hellcat lineup ever in 2019, by leveraging the power of the record-setting Dodge Challenger SRT Demon to introduce the new performance halo for the brand and the most powerful, quickest and fastest muscle car—the 797hp Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat Redeye.

The Challenger SRT Hellcat returns with output now starting at 717hp and both Hellcat models feature a new dual-snorkel hood that pays homage to the distinctive Dodge design themes from some of its most famous muscle cars, including the 1970 Dart Swinger and 1971 Demon. The new R/T Scat Pack Widebody includes fender flares, adding 3.5” of body width, 20” x 11” forged wheels, 305/35ZR20 Pirelli tires and larger 6-piston Brembo brakes in the front for improved on-road and on-track performance.

From the quickest, fastest and most powerful sedan in the world to V-6 efficiency and all-wheel-drive (AWD) capability, the Dodge Charger lineup is designed and engineered to provide the ultimate in high-performance comfort and road-ready confidence as America’s only four-door muscle car. Dodge Charger’s rear-wheel-drive (RWD) architecture enables a model lineup highlighted by extensive performance-driven powertrains with the latest technology under the hood and behind the wheel—further building on the Dodge brand’s promise to deliver American performance machines with world-class power, efficiency, technology, authentic materials and standout styling.
