While having depreciated slightly over the past 16 weeks, during the same period in 2015, full-size pickups showed a stronger retrention with an increase in value, according to Black Book. Overall truck values decreased by 0.37% during the past week, which nearly matches the previous four-week depreciation rate of 0.35%.

Luxury cars led the decline in values by 0.85% followed by the near luxury car and sub-compact car segments, declining at 0.79% and 0.77% respectively.

Pickups and the full-size crossover/SUV segments retained good values, according to Black Book.
