Toyota Camry Depreciation

A Toyota Camry will depreciate 49% after 5 years and have a 5 year resale value of $14,298.

The Toyota Camry, being one of the best-selling cars in the country for years and years, depreciates right about in the middle of the pack. They are reliable and well-built, but there are loads of them on the market, so that keeps prices down. They are also very popular with rental companies, so if you buy a used Camry, there is a decent chance that it was sold an auction when the rental company turned it in. This isn't necessarily a bad thing, but rental cars can be ridden hard, and sometimes abused, so ask your salesperson about the history of the one that interests you.

The chart below shows the expected depreciation for the next 10 years. These results are for vehicles in good condition, averaging 13,500 miles per, and assumes a purchase price of $28,090 when new. Key in your purchase price, expected ownership period and estimated annual miles driven into our depreciation calculator, and we'll predict an expected resale value just for you.

If you purchase a used Toyota Camry that is 2 years old, then you could save $7,143 compared to buying new, and still have a relatively new model with plenty of useful life remaining. If you plan to keep this vehicle for 3 years then your total cost of depreciation would be $6,649. Try other age and ownership length combinations, or different vehicles to see if you can find depreciation sweetspots where this cost is the lowest. Hint: Try vehicles between 2 and 4 years old, as brand new vehicles depreciate quickly. Also, if this is a recently released model and buying a few years old isn't possible, consider another vehicle, or perhaps wait until more used Camry models become available.

About Our Data and "Useful Lifespan"

We aggregate and analyze millions of automotive data points from a variety of sources, including some of the industry's leading data providers. The historical depreciation tables, charts, values and overall rankings are conducted on a semi-annual basis, with our most recent update published in September 2020.

While the "Useful Lifespan" of a vehicle will vary greatly from one model to the next, and even one owner to the next, we have determined that twelve years is the most appropriate timeframe which will yield us good, usable data - and that any data beyond that timeframe becomes more dispersed, and ultimately less reliable. Moreover, maintenance costs beyond that timeframe become significantly more varied, as a vehicle owner's care of a particular vehicle will greatly impact its value, and ongoing maintenance costs. We are very much hopeful, however, that your car or truck will last well beyond twelve years, and that it gets you to where you want to go.
