When you’re looking for a new Toyota in Orlando, you’re probably not thinking about how much you’ll be able to sell it for five years down the road. You’re most likely more concerned with things like fuel efficiency, interior space, towing capabilities, or technological features. However, resale value is an important factor to consider! Although Toyota vehicles offer incredibly long and reliable life spans, you may want to trade-in or switch things up down the road, and resale value will be an important element of that experience. Luckily for you, Toyota of Orlando – a member of our family of dealerships – has a great selection of new Toyota vehicles that topped Kelley Blue Book’s list of vehicles with the best resale value (as will Toyota of Clermont when they open this summer!).
Which new Toyota in Orlando offer the best resale value?
KBB decided to compile a list of the 2013 vehicles that offered the best resale value five years down the road; basically, they factor in how well the car will retain its original list price in five years of depreciation. Generally, most vehicles retain about 38% of their value, but Toyota topped that number – KBB found that most new Toyota retain about 44% of their value, beating out competitors like Honda, Subaru, and Porsche! KBB even went so far as to break results down further, listing specific makes and models that held the most value for the 2013 model year. Let’s take a look at some of the top performers!
2013 Toyota FJ Cruiser retains up to 63% value after five years
Guess who was number one? Toyota, of course… but you’ll probably be surprised to see which specific new Toyota in Orlando took the winning position. The 2013 Toyota FJ Cruiser! This tough and durable SUV is a favorite of off-roaders and outdoor enthusiasts, and KBB declared that it officially holds the most resale value out of all the 2013 models considered – five years from now, it’ll still offer about 63% of its original listing price! That’s even more reason to hit the road (or the trail) in this incredible vehicle. The 2013 Toyota FJ Cruiser in Orlando is exceptional and well-known for blending great performance capabilities (including 4×4, 260 horsepower, 271 lb-ft of torque, and rear wheel drive with automatic limited-slip rear differential) with a durable interior and great technology. Don’t miss out!
The 2013 Toyota Tacoma in Orlando made the list as well, and we’re not surprised. Toyota is known for its reliability, and this new Toyota is no exception. The Orlando Toyota Tacoma is a perfect blend of style and ruggedness, providing a top notch option whether you want to cruise city streets or hit the off-road trails on the weekend. It’s also got great towing capabilities, and has an extremely affordable starting price. Plus, you’ll be able to customize it to a “t” – do you want 4×2 or 4×4? Manual or automatic? Seating for three or five? It’s all up to you!
