 According to the 2014 Residual Analysis Report published by Kelley Blue Book, trucks continue to hold their value better than cars, with the average 60-month residual value across all trucks at 41.7 percent compared to the 37.8 percent average across all cars.

Pickup truck segments, both mid-size and full-size, have the highest segment residual values after five years.
