Ford Wins Highest Retained Value Award

Highest Retained Value

When buying a new vehicle, most buyers tend to want the best value initially, but wouldn’t you like to know you can still drive a car you love without taking a huge depreciation hit? The Ford F-150, Ford Edge, and Ford Transit Connect all have been awarded the Highest Retained Value from TrueCar! The 2014 models were given this award for their longevity and product competitiveness within their respected segments.

The 2014 F-150 is the proud winner of the full-size pickup category for the 2016 TrueCar Pre Owned Value Award. Why you ask? That’s because the Ford F-150 has been given praise for its combination of class leading technology and durability. In fact, the competition is outnumbered, as there are more F-Series trucks on the road with over 250,000 miles then other full-size pickup brands! I guess there’s a reason why the F-150 has been America’s best selling truck for 39 years strong!

The 2014 Edge was also a winner for the midsize SUV with second row seating category. Ford completely redesigned the Edge for the 2015 model year, and the 2016 continue to improve on that greatness! We praised the Edge for its amenities and excellent driving abilities in our review, and buyers seem too agree! With available features, such as a 2.7L EcoBoost engine, active park assist, and 180-degree camera, the 2016 Ford Edge is a pinnacle of Ford technologies that create a fun driving experience that is also focused on safety.

The 2014 Transit Connect won the top ranking for the midsize commercial vehicle category. We’ve described Ford vans as faithful companions in the past, and this award proves that statement. Along with the Transit and E-Series vans, Ford’s vans are the bestselling commercial vehicles in all 50 states, and Washington D.C. If you need a maneuverable van for your small business needs, the Transit Connect is worth a look!

Ford’s 2016 lineup is expanding on these successes to create the best vehicles out there. So when the time comes to upgrade to a newer model, you can be sure that the technologies you love will be better then ever, and with the Highest Retained Value in their classes, these vehicles are some of the best buys out there!

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.
