These New Cars Retain the Most Value

Value Winners
Most people have heard the saying that a new car loses value the moment the owner drives it off a dealer’s lot. Although that is essentially true, some models hold their value over time better than others. To that end, ALG (formerly Automotive Lease Guide), a division of research firm J.D. Power, is the industry benchmark for determining automotive residual values — or what percentage of value a vehicle will retain over time. After calculating factors for 2022 model-year vehicles, the company recently announced winners of the J.D. Power 2022 U.S. ALG Residual Value Awards. Winners were chosen after evaluating 284 models for used vehicle performance, brand outlook and product competitiveness.
