February 6, 2020 , Auburn Hills, Mich. - Kelley Blue Book has named the 2020 Jeep® Wrangler, Jeep Gladiator, Ram 1500 and Ram 2500 and 3500 Heavy Duty pickups winners of its Best Resale Value Awards. For the ninth consecutive year, Kelley Blue Book has named the Jeep Wrangler to its Top 10 list and Wrangler has captured a segment award for the 10th consecutive year. 

Kelley Blue Book named 10 vehicles to its Best Resale Value Awards list with three FCA vehicles or vehicle lines making the cut, tying for the most of any automaker. 

“The iconic Jeep Wrangler has once again successfully defended its top position in the off-road SUV segment. Additionally, the lofty residual values associated with the Wrangler earn it a place among Kelley Blue Book’s Top 10 vehicles with the highest residual values. Joining the Wrangler on this list, in its inaugural year, is the Jeep Gladiator,” said Eric Ibara, Director, Residual Values, Kelley Blue Book. “Since the 2019 launch of its new truck, Ram has realized significant increases in retail sales. Consumers’ renewed interest in Ram’s light- and heavy-duty trucks has also been reflected in higher used car values, which results in the inclusion of the Ram 1500 and Heavy Duty variants in Kelley Blue Book’s Top 10 Best Resale Value list.” 

Kelley Blue Book’s KBB.com Best Resale Value Awards are based on projections from the Kelley Blue Book® Official Residual Value Guide and determined by a skilled staff of automotive analysts. These prestigious awards honor vehicles expected to maintain the greatest proportion of their original list price after five years of ownership.
