Off-Rental and Off-Lease Hit Harder than Overall Market

Truck prices con­tin­ue to show the most uptick strength in the whole­sale used vehi­cle mar­ket; how­ev­er, whole­sale val­ues were sol­id over­all in Octo­ber in most mod­el year and sale-type cat­e­gories. Off-rental risk and off-lease vehi­cles were hit hard­er with price declines. High­er mileage vehi­cles hurt off-rental risk, and grow­ing sup­plies of off-lease units soft­ened those prices. Retail used vehi­cle sales were down a lit­tle bit, but still strong; CPO sales con­tin­ued their sta­bil­i­ty.
