The Market Insights report also provides a look at new trends this past week showing car values saw lighter depreciation while truck values saw heavier than normal depreciation. “We saw normal declines in the wholesale market last week, which are consistent with seasonality expectations. SUV values that have recently been stable have begun to show some softness,” said Anil Goyal, Vice President of Automotive Valuation and Analytics.
