Jeep's four-door Wrangler has placed at the top of a list of 10 vehicles that retain the highest percentage of their value over a five-year period, according to the latest report from iSeeCars.

The two-door Wrangler placed second on the list of highest resale value. The four-door Wranger depreciates 30%, while the two-door version fell 31.5% in value.

"Because of Jeep’s loyal following, their demand outstrips supply in the used-car marketplace, leading to high resale values," said Phong Ly, iSeeCars chief executive officer.

Four pickup trucks also made the list, including the Toyota Tacona at three (32% depreciation), Toyota Tundra at four (35.9%), Honda Ridgeline at seven (38.1%), and Nissan Frontier at nine (39.5%). The Toyota 4Runner midsize SUV came in fifth with a depreciation rate of 36.5%.

Other vehicles in the top 10 include the Porsche 911 at six (37.2%), Nissan GT-R at eight (39.4%), and Subaru Impreza WRX at 10 (40%).

The website also released a list of the highest depreciating vehicles, which included mostly luxury and electric vehicles. The Maserati Quattroporte loses the most value with an average 72.2% of its purchase price, which amounts to $93,393, according to the website.

Other higher-depreciating luxury sedans include the BMW 7 Series at two, BMW 5 Series at five, Acura RLX at six, BMW 6 Series at eight, and Jaguar XJL at nine.

High-depreciation electric vehicles on the list include the Nissan LEAF at three, BMW i3 at four, Ford Fusion Energi plug-in hybrid at deven, and Chevrolet Volt plug-in hybrid at 10.

"Previous government incentives contribute to the steep depreciation of electric and plug-in hybrid vehicles because their resale value is based off their lower post-incentive sticker price," Ly said. "Outdated technology also contributes to their dramatic depreciation as well as range anxiety."
