What's the rule of thumb on the difference in resale value of a Honda CRV one year older? Because dealers are incented to move their 2018's, I can get a 2018 CRV EX-L for about $3365 less than the cost of a 2019 model (that's coming out very soon in late November 2018). I'm happy to wait for the 2019's, however, these will sell very close to list... again about $3365 higher. If I sell a 2019 in 7 years, I don't believe I can sell it for $3365 more than a 2018 model year. There will be no changes on the CRV from 2018 to 2019, so it's the same exact. Thoughts?

    Hi, acadia2009,

    What is the price quote you have for a 2018 CRV EX-L? Is it AWD or FWD?

    $3365 is quite a lot discount for a new car of older model.
