This week’s Black Book Market Insights report looks at where we are with cars and trucks during the peak of the spring season. The most glaring trend is that both cars and trucks are not seeing the same kind of retention and pricing that’s been seen the past couple of spring seasons. As an example of this, both cars and trucks overall declined this past week, whereas they saw price increases during the same week last year.
“Small cars, crossovers and pickup trucks showed good performance; however the spring season this year continues to be weaker than what we’ve seen in the past couple of years,” said Anil Goyal, Senior Vice President of Automotive Valuation and Analytics
