For the 2018 award process, 244 vehicle models were evaluated using a sample of over 650,000 transactions with an average of 3,500 data points assessed on each vehicle. The award selection process utilizes used vehicle wholesale prices, which represent how much a dealer buys a used vehicle for. These prices are then divided by the vehicle's original purchase price. These calculations are based on wholesale records from January through June 2018 for vehicles that are three years old. For the 2018 calculation, 2015 is the applicable model year.
