Kelley Blue Book’s Best Resale List: the Toyota Tacoma, 4Runner, and Tundra

Kelley Blue Book (KBB) is one of the most useful resources for today’s information-seeking driver. The company catalogs information on just about every make and model of automobile on the market today and organizes that information into categories that may appeal to drivers.

One such area of interest is the resale value of a vehicle. This plays a huge role in decision making when it comes time to buy or sell a car. Resale value can be thought of as how much a vehicle can be worth after a period of time. Usually and understandably, cars are worth more when they’re new. Classics and one-offs are a different story.

KBB provides a list of cars with the best resale value. Of the 10 cars that appear on the most recent list, Toyota takes three spots, making it one of only two auto manufacturers to appear more than once. What’s even better for Toyota is where its cars appear on the list. The company holds the number one spot, the number two spot, and the number six spot.

2016 Toyota 4Runner

The 4Runner faces tough competition from other auto manufacturers from time to time, but it managed to make the number two spot on KBB’s list of vehicles with the best resale value.

The SUV market is flooded with different takes on the class. The 4Runner does everything all of the other SUVs can do and then some, but it does so without hemorrhaging dollar signs behind it as it is driven down the road.

For its longevity, durability, and ability to tackle obstacles other SUVs can’t, the 4Runner belongs on KBB’s list.

2016 Toyota Tundra

Although the Tundra is a little lower on the list than the Tacoma and the 4Runner, it’s Toyota’s biggest, meanest, most powerful truck.

The Tundra can tow and haul a massive amount of weight, beating out domestic competitors by getting the job done without breaking the bank.

The Tundra will always sell well because it’s a strong, capable workhorse that shrugs off wear and tear.
