June 2016 Guidelines

Used Car & Light-Duty Truck Guidelines:  Typical for the month of May, depreciation accelerated as wholesale prices of used vehicles up to eight years in age fell by 2% compared to April (or a half-percentage point more than the 1.5% drop recorded a month earlier). But while depreciation on a monthly basis was higher, May’s performance was better than expected and was an improvement over the 2.7% decline averaged over the previous four years. Download the June Used Car & Light-Duty Truck Guidelines.

Commercial Truck Guidelines:  Class 8 auction volume remains relatively steady, well behind the second half of 2015. Volume is shifting to one specific model, and daycabs, in general, are seeing a higher supply. Retail pricing continues to catch up to wholesale, with the market sticking to our depreciation forecast of 4 – 5% per month. The freight environment remains muted, limiting demand for new and used trucks. Download the June Commercial Truck Guidelines.
