Used Mercedes-Benz trucks sell for $62,705 more than new
The average used car sells for $553 more than new, but the Mercedes-Benz G-Class is far from average.
Used examples of the luxury SUV built since 2020 were $62,705 above their original list price in January on the marketplace iseecars.com.
The 35.6% bonus was by far the largest, but not the only significant one. Chevrolet Corvettes fetched an additional $16,645, or 20.2 percent above their factory MSRPs.
The Tesla Model 3 was next on the list at $8,300/17.8%, followed by the subcompact SUVs Ford Bronco Sport ($5,766/16.4%) and Chevrolet Trailblazer ($4,270/15.6 %).
Low new car inventories caused by shortages of semiconductors have been driving used car prices higher over the past year. The Mercedes-Benz website even has a pop-up alerting buyers to low inventory and feature availability.

There are, however, offers at the other end of the market. New Ford Mustangs are always more valuable than used ones, with an average premium of $9,519/19.4%, and the used BMW 7 Series Sedan and Acura MDX SUV can be had for several thousand dollars less than new.
