Kelley Blue Book Names Winners of 2011 Best Resale Value Awards

November 17, 2010

Kelley Blue Book, a provider of new and used vehicle information, announces the all-new 2011 model-year vehicle winners of its annual Best Resale Value Awards, which recognize current and forthcoming vehicles for their projected retained value five years from now.

Kelley Blue Book's Best Resale Value Awards are based on projections from the Kelley Blue Book Official Residual Value Guide, determined by an expert staff of automotive analysts. These awards honor vehicles expected to maintain the greatest proportion of their original list price after five years of ownership. Low-volume vehicles and vehicles with a manufacturer's suggested retail price of more than $60,000 are excluded from award consideration, except in the luxury and high-performance categories.
