Our Ford Depreciation Analysis and Recommendations

Ford's resale values are all over the map when you look out across the manufacturer's full lineup of vehicles. On the one hand, there's the F-150, which scores very well in the Top 10 at year 5, and the Mustang ranks well too, which stands in the top 20 of popular models. On the other hand, however, there's the Ford Fusion Energi, which simply ran out of steam (or whatever it runs on), and came in dead last at the 3- and 5-year marks. Ford is in the midst of a model lineup consolidation, so it's no surprise that some of the abandoned models have done poorly on holding their values.

The 2018, 2017 & 2016 Ford model years are currently the best values in our opinion.

On average, expect to pay only 64% of the original cost with 83% of the vehicle's lifetime remaining for a 2018 Ford. That gives it a Net Used Value score of 19.07 which factors in annual maintenance costs, price decline, reliable years left and available inventory.

Also consider the 2017 & 2016 model years. Those currently have a generally low risk of any significant depreciation over the next several years.

While we would advise holding onto this vehicle for a few years, that's not always the plan. Dealers have access to similar figures so they know that your vehicle has a low risk of depreciation.
