Filed under: Car Buying , Audi , Chevrolet , Chrysler , Ford , Honda , Jeep , Lexus , Toyota Kelley Blue Book has announced the company’s 2012 Best Resale Value Awards. The honors are handed out based on projections crafted by the KBB staff of automotive analysts for cars and trucks expected to retain the largest percentage of their original list price after five years. For 2012, KBB has named Toyota as the best resale brand with Lexus taking the top honor in the luxury brand category. There aren’t any surprises there, and the list of individual winners isn’t likely to shake anyone’s tree either. Toyota brands earned five category awards, while Honda alone took four categories, including sub-compact car, compact car, hybrid and van. The Ford F-150 , meanwhile, took home the full-size pickup nod and the only award for the Blue Ovals brands, while the Chevrolet Camaro V6 and SS snagged the sports car and high-performance car categories, respectively. There were a few surprises in the mix, however. The Jeep Wrangler brought home the only win in the compact SUV category and the only nod for Chrysler this year. The Audi A5 snagged the gold in the luxury car category and the Chevy Volt beat out the Nissan Leaf in the electric car category. Kelly Blue Book says that residual value should be at the top of car buyers concerns when it comes time to bringing home a new model as depreciation represents the largest potential new-car expense.
