2015 Ford Award Winners: Best Retained Value

2014 Transit Connect

Edmunds.com has recently announced the recipients of its Best Retained Value Award for 2015. We’re happy to announce that the 2015 Transit Connect and 2015 F-350 Super Duty have won for best Small Commercial Van, and Best Heavy Duty Truck, respectively. These two vehicles join the other lineup of great 2015 Ford Award Winners! What does this mean exactly? It essentially means that these two Ford vehicles have the highest projected residual values after five years, based on their average price when they are new.

The resale value on a vehicle is very important to consider when looking at a new vehicle as customers who plan on leasing or trading in their vehicles ever few years can use that to their advantage for their next Ford vehicle purchase. The 2015 Transit Connect is estimated to retain 47% of its value after five years and the 2015 F-350 Super Duty is estimated to retain 58.5% over the same time period. Not bad at all for two built tough Ford vehicles.
