10. Dodge Challenger


2014-dodge-challenger

Fuel economy might top the list of things car shoppers are looking for when choosing a new vehicle, but resale value is still a valid concern for many buyers. Knowing what your car is worth three to five years down the road is important, since vehicles depreciated quicker than any other asset we can spend our hard-earned cash on.

So if resale value is one of your top priorities when deciding what vehicle to purchase, this Top 10 list will be of interest to you. Based on Kelley Blue Book‘s nominees for Best Resale Award among the 2014 lineup, you can get a good idea of what your future investment could be worth in the future.

Kicking off the list is the Dodge Challenger, netting itself 60.8 percent of its original value after three years. Those looking to keep their American sports car for five years can look forward to getting back 50.5 percent of its original price. The 2014 Dodge Challenger starts from $27,290 including destination and comes standard with a Pentastar V6 engine with 305 hp and 268 lb-ft of torque. Power hungry shoppers can opt for the 5.7-liter HEMI V8 that features 375 hp and 410 lb-ft of torque.

Top-10-Reasons-to-Get-a-Sports-Car-Main-Art

Your grip on the steering wheel tightens. Your eyes fixate on the yellow line. Your brain screams about the trees just beyond the shoulder. Wait for it… wait for it… ok, NOW! You pounce on the clutch as your right foot stabs the accelerator. A wrist-flick completes the downshift. Feather the brake, turn into the corner and scrub off some speed; the radius decreases slightly. You nail the apex, tires howling like a bloodhound on the trail.
