2015 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Depreciates Slower Than Others

While everybody knows that most vehicles depreciate in value the moment they're driven off of the dealership lot, what many consumers are surprised to discover is that not all vehicles depreciate at quite the same rate. There are some, for example, that can lose as much as a third of their initial value in only the first year. None of those are Jeep models, thankfully, but dropping that much value could be the sort of thing that scares a customer away from a certain model.

The 2015 Jeep® Wrangler Unlimited should, in this comparative light, absolutely warm your collective heart, as it depreciates much more slowly than that. In fact, even compared to the industry average of a 17 percent difference in value after the first year, the Wrangler is a superstar. In the first 12 months, this particular vehicle only drops 7.1 percent of its value, which is a remarkable number considering the sheer volume of vehicles that depreciate much more quickly than that.

In fact, the Jeep Wrangler is among the top four slowest-depreciating vehicles in the industry today, which is something that Jeep dealerships and drivers enjoy in equal measure. The reasons why aren't spelled out but also aren't hard to discern: built to last, these are vehicles that stand the test of time. That means even when purchased used, they remain a great value. Since they retain their value, they're also in high demand, which keeps their pre-owned sticker prices in a good place.

As long as they stay tough and in-demand, they'll depreciate more slowly than the competition, and that should certainly help set them apart in an increasingly-crowded modern SUV selection.Stop by Windward Dodge Chrysler Jeep RAM to check out our current inventory that includes the 2015 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited.
