From Edmunds.com

About to purchase a new truck or sport-utility vehicle? Your bank account will owe you a debt of gratitude if you select one that doesn't lose too much of its value to depreciation. With resale value in mind, we've compiled this list of the 10 pickups and SUVs likely to depreciate the least during ownership. Included is the percentage of its original value that each vehicle is likely to retain after five years with an annual mileage of 15,000.
