Kelley Blue Book
August used vehicle values saw continuation of a four-month trend with declines from the previous month; each vehicle segment was down from July 2014. Kelley Blue Book still projects that 2014 will end slightly higher in prices than 2013 saw; but the gap in year-over-year vehicles price gains has thinned way down – from $711 in May 2014 to just $165 in August 2014.
Segments with Largest Declines Were Luxury and Near-Luxury at 3.2% and 3.3%:
Best performing segments were van and full-size SUV, down only 0.5% and 0.7%.
In Luxury, Entry-Level Luxury Was Worst Performing – Down More than 3%:
Segment has declined a significant 7.2% since May, and down 4.2% from last year.
Subcompact Segment Approached 3-Year Low – $241 Lower than in 2013:
Full-size pickups declined 0.9% from July, most likely from normal seasonal depreciation.
