Black Book has tak­en a look at depre­ci­a­tion trends in the past three months and sees that small­er cars have been hard­est hit. The Entry Lev­el Car seg­ment dropped by over 9% in val­ue dur­ing that peri­od. Truck resale val­ues decreased by 0.19% last week, which is sim­i­lar to the aver­age depre­ci­a­tion seen by trucks over the last 12 weeks; but that’s two-thirds of the depre­ci­a­tion rate seen this time last year.
