5 Pickup Trucks With The Worst Resale Value For 2022

Sometimes buying a car, truck or SUV can leave you with an expensive car payment and a not so modern car. Although all of the following trucks are new for this year, the expected resale value is not great. Pickups with the worst resale value for 2022 include Honda, Ford and even Nissan options. Just because it doesn’t have a good resale value doesn’t mean it’s not suitable either. Reliable trucks may have poor resale value.

The Honda Ridgeline is a pickup truck with the worst resale value for 2022

The 2022 Honda Ridgeline is a favorite truck among drivers and experts. MotorTrend and Intellichoice report that the Honda truck offers a comfortable ride and decent fuel economy. Unfortunately, the Ridgeline truck also offers the worst resale value of any pickup truck at 56.9%. This means that it loses nearly half of its value after a five-year ownership period. The average depreciation for a vehicle is 50.6% of its value after five years, so the Ridgeline isn’t too far off. It is still a new truck at a reasonable and safe price.

Although the Nissan Frontier is all-new for 2022, it doesn’t hold its value

Nissan redesigned the 2022 Frontier this year, but it has yet to seem to win the hearts of buyers. The new Frontier will only retain 58% of its value after five years, which isn’t a good sign either. If there’s any good news, it’s that this Nissan truck is more modern and safer than ever for 2022.

If you need a heavy-duty truck, the 2022 Ram 3500 will do the job. Unfortunately, that doesn’t seem like a wise investment when you take into account that it will only retain 58.6% of its purchase price after five years. The Ram 3500 can tow heavy loads and is durable enough to be an everyday work truck, but it’s squarely on the list of pickups with the worst retail value.

Drivers love the Ford Ranger, but it doesn’t hold its value

Small trucks are having a major moment in the automotive world, and the 2022 Ford Ranger is one of that group. The Ranger is expected to retain only 59.2% of its purchase price after five years. With a fast engine, 7,500-pound towing capacity, and added safety features, this Ford truck still fits many lifestyles.

Any car, truck or SUV is subject to depreciation, some just see a more serious case than others. If your dream truck is on this list and you can’t live without it, try to find a lightly used version. Most vehicles depreciate the most in the first few months of ownership, which means you can avoid some of that by buying used.
