List Rules A list of the 2012 cars, trucks and SUVs with the highest resale value.

What are the best resale value cars of 2012? This list includes all of the cars, trucks and SUVs that had the greatest resale value for the year. What makes a vehicle have a high resale value? Several factors, including having a great reputation. Year after year, the same cars/trucks/SUVs wind up at the top of the resale value list for a reason. Which cars do you think had the best resale value in 2012? Be sure to vote for your favorites and vote down any of the vehicles that you don't think deserved to have a high resale value.

Why does resale value matter? It matters a great deal if you want to be able to trade in your new car every few years. You'll want to ensure that you can get as much money as possible to put towards the next vehicle you purchase, after all. Certain makes and models are simply going to have higher, better resale values than others.

And it's not just a car's depreciation that matters. Other major factors that could easily affect resale value of cars include location (certain models are more popular in certain areas of the country), color of the car and how many upgrades and/or options it has (if you splurged on a sport package, for instance, you might have a higher resale value). Keep all of this in mind when you decide to buy a new vehicle, and you want to get a high resale value later.
