The 2012 Jeep Wrangler comes in first among many for its strong resale value. After owning a Wrangler for 5 years you can still expect the vehicle to retain around 55 percent of its value according to Kelley Blue Book. If you enjoy outdoor activities this Jeep is your ticket for just about anything from rock crawling to a simple drive to the beach. The 2012 Jeep Wrangler continues the obsession that America has had for the Jeep since the end of World War II. With the capability to crawl over a boulder at the snails pace of .5 miles per hour, the Wrangler is an off-road master. The most important improvement of 2012 is the 40 percent horsepower gain from the previous year Wrangler which had a 202 horsepower engine. The new 2012 Wrangler has a more powerful 285 horsepower V6 engine, combined with the optional five speed automatic the powertrain increases both performance and fuel efficiency.
Kelley Blue Book has been publishing the Official Residual Value Guide since 1981, so they are industry-acknowledged experts in the art and science of resale value projections. Financial institutions, governmental agencies and the automotive leasing industry rely on the comprehensive residual values they provide.
To help guide consumers on this important but little-understood facet of the automotive purchase process, Kelley Blue Book established its annual Best Resale Value Awards in 2003.
