2014 Best Resale Value Awards: Sports Car - Kelley Blue Book


Featured on Camaro5 HOMEPAGE


GM has really made some headlines lately.


Owning a muscle car used to bring with it a number of supplementary expenses, particularly when it came time to sell, but the Chevrolet Camaro V6 keeps practicality in check thanks to laudable resale value, a lengthy 5-year/100,000-mile powertrain warranty, and EPA fuel economy figures of up to 30 mpg on the highway. If ever there was a good time to own a modern-day muscle car, it's now.

From where we sit, the 2014 Camaro is a design tour de force. It's great looking from every angle and instantly recognizable as a Camaro without drawing too heavily on designs from previous generations. While its aggressive front end immediately grabs your attention, our favorite element of the design is the synergy between the flared rear fenders and the roof. GM designers say it was extremely difficult to accomplish this look using factory stamping techniques, but the end result was a smashing success.

Camaros of old were great in a straight line but less impressive through corners, especially if the road surface was uneven. Employing a multi-link rear suspension in place of a live axle, the current-generation Camaro is much more at home in these types of challenging situations. And with 323 horsepower on tap, the 2014 Camaro V6 can give the V8-powered Camaros of yore a serious run for their money.

For all its impressive performance figures, though, the Camaro's most compelling quality is quite possibly its sticker price. With an enticing $24,500 starting MSRP and low depreciation, the Chevy Camaro offers a considerable amount of bang for the buck.

This sucks because I want to buy one used and will apparently be waiting for even more years. GM did too well!

They base the estimate on what previous years of the same car have done or are doing.

Well I didn't just focus on the sports car category and Gm has a lot of cars and trucks in the categories except in the luxury area where I thought caddy has since stepped up their game in the quality dept. But it doesn't seem to show here. But I guess if you want something that doesn't depreciate that much get a Toyota FJ cruiser only 70.1 percent depreciation after 36 months that is like wow to me. Even that whole category is amazing the midsize suv one. Oh and I see no fords on any of the lists except for the fusion.

I'm sure they had to just pick a year and this happened to be the year they chose. I like the look of my 2010 over the 2014's out there. The tail lights look better and to me it's the original production design. All others stemmed off 2010 lol. I'm not looking to sell mine anyway so who cares

When I traded my 2010 1LT for my 2012 I got over 75% of its origonal MSRP in trade and it was over 2 1/2 years old with 32,000 miles on it.

The 2010-2014 Camaros RS V6 and SS V8 are all muscle cars by definition of the 60's muscle car era! Back then if your car had 300hp , it was considered a muscle car! So, YES we all own muscle cars just different levels of HIGH PERFORMANCE!

V-iva La V6! Seriously, the 'Master Race' notwithstanding, it really does have quite the performance (and gas mileage) for a lowly 6 cylinder. And that apparently didn't go unnoticed by the consumer / resale market.

I share your sentiment. Even back to a 2010 SS, I still see prices in the mid $20K's to and over $30K. People are gladly paying it and people are also handily forking over close to $40K for new ones, so I suppose there is no reason for prices to drop anytime soon.

Performance is huge for resale value, you want to go fast, you have to pay. The SS especially will hold strong resale value 10 years from now. I fear the V6 will take a hit because of all the similarly priced cars with as good or better performance in its price range (Mustang V6, Genesis Coupes, WRX).
