Jeep Wrangler and Wrangler Unlimited Maintain Their Value
Ah, Jeep – a long-lasting brand that’s existed for more than 75 years, and with no signs of slowing down. As notorious as Jeep is for keeping the goods for their upper level trims, if you’re in the market for a Jeep, you’re in luck. If you own a Jeep but looking to sell it, you’re also in luck. Either way, Jeep vehicles, like the Wrangler have a great used resale value.
It Keeps Its Value
Jeep models, especially the Jeep Wrangler and Wrangler Unlimited, maintain value over the years, and many consumers are able to get an excellent price for their used Jeep. According to Kelley Blue Book, a 2017 Jeep Wrangler can be sold for 63.7 percent of its retail price after three years, and 51.1 percent after five years. Forbes did a little digging and found a 2008 two-door Wrangler in top condition is estimated to have a 90 percent resale value.
It’s an Icon
Although it was not called a Wrangler in the beginning, it has been around since day one of Jeep’s birth. Originally made for the army to handle tough terrain and unsavory road conditions, the Wrangler has been the face of Jeep for years. Drive on the road, drive off-road, the Wrangler can handle it — especially when equipped with the Wrangler’s Rock-Trac 4×4 system, which can take on some serious rock crawling. Plus, Jeep is constantly adding new trims to the lineup, so consumers always have many options. Currently, the Jeep Wrangler lineup has 14 trims for consumers to choose from.
Speaking of 4×4 systems, aside from the Rock-Trac, the Wrangler is well-known for the Command-Trac 4×4 system, able to “shift-on-the-fly” from 2WD to 4WD. This system offers drivers flexibility to go wherever, whenever. Plus, it comes with great features for every season. Summer is coming, so it has been getting hotter every day, but fortunately the Wrangler has tinted windshield glass as a lineup standard to fight back and keep glare out of the driver’s eyes. Plus, consumers can choose an easy-to-remove soft top and even remove the vehicle’s doors so they can feel the breeze while on the road. When it gets chilly, drivers and passengers can enjoy heated front seats (select trims).
It’s Not Impossible to Buy
Yes, a Jeep Wrangler may still retain a lot of its retail price after a couple of years, but it’s still a great and affordable used vehicle to buy. Wranglers are durable, long lasting, and their timeless design means they are always in style.
The numbers speak for themselves. Whether looking to trade in a Jeep Wrangler or buying a used Jeep, you get a good deal on either end. Interested? Check out our inventory for your Jeep now!
