Our trusted valuations just keep getting better

At Kelley Blue Book, our valuation process is constantly evolving to reflect the ever-changing automotive marketplace.

To continue providing consumers and business partners with market-reflective values, we recently rebuilt our valuation engine from the ground up. Here are some of the key improvements:

We recognize that color plays a role in determining a vehicle’s value.

Kelley Blue Book analyzed the top 15 colors in the marketplace and has turned this knowledge into market-reflective valuations.

Enhanced Treatment of Mileage

We’ve also improved the way we adjust values for mileage.

We’ve analyzed millions of records to more accurately reflect how mileage impacts the values of vehicles of different ages, makes, categories and more.

Improved Condition Adjustments

As with mileage, a vehicle’s condition will impact each vehicle’s value differently.

Our new valuations look more closely at age and scarcity when determining the impact of condition on value.
