GUIDELINES

March 2017 Guidelines

Used Car & Light-Duty Truck GuidelinesIn a reversal of what typically occurs in February, wholesale prices of used vehicles up to eight years old fell substantially last month, dropping 1.6% compared to January. The drop was counter to the 1% increase expected for the month and marked just the second time in the past 20 years prices fell in February (last years’ scant 0.2% being the other instance).   Download the March Used Car & Light-Duty Truck Guidelines

Commercial Truck Guidelines:  The new and used truck markets are showing both anecdotal and concrete signs of improvement as spring arrives. Dealers and end users are starting to report somewhat better conditions. New truck orders have been moving in the right direction since November. Used truck sales volume has been moving incrementally upward. Depreciation in the retail and wholesale markets generally relaxed in the fourth quarter of 2016 and early 2017, and pricing and volume at auctions in February suggested a stabilizing market.  Download the March Commercial Truck Guidelines
