Do you guys think the Rebels will hold their value somewhat decently? I'm considering making the switch from a Tundra which is actually my 3rd Tundra and everytime I've traded one in I seem to get a fairly good price.

It's pretty hard to say. I don't anticipate it doing the opposite and losing value really quickly. Ram trucks do run into trouble sometimes after a number of years (I'm thinking of the Ram 1500 EcoDiesel), so if your looking for a vehicle that is really good at retaining value, a Ram might not be for you.

Toyota Tundra and Tacoma have best retained value of all pickup trucks so it's hard to compare their depreciation rate with that of the Rebel.

Personally never really cared about resale value. I usually buy a vehicle and drive it into the ground. Vehicles are not really an investment, so to me future value is not as much of a concern.

That's the best way to see it, way too many people see them as an asset, yet when you buy one brand new the moment you roll it off the dealership floor for the first time it drops in value by 15%. Now that's a bad asset.

IMO, future value of the vehicle also includes what you don't have to buy because of it...(savings LOL)

Thats always my stance as well, if you are worried about resale value, you likely shouldn't be looking at a NEW vehicle. Buy what you want, enjoy it. No one ever figures in SMILES per gallon =) to me thats worth a lot.
