MY2013 Prices

Hi everyone, I'am new to the forum so appologise if this or similar posts have been posted numerous times. I've jsut had a call from my local LR garage trying to get me to test drive one of the new RRS. I currently have a 2014 SDV6 HSE with 30k on the clock and in excellent condiiton. I love the car and have owned two - this and a 2005 sport. I'm a big fan of the Range Rovers. I've been planning to change to a completely different car as Ive owned two of them. No doubt I'll regret selling it and at some point I'll move back to something from the Land Rover brand. I've decided that the wife can have the practical car this time and I'm going to go for a sports car for a year or two.

Anyway to get to the point the guy at the LR dealership planted a seed in my mind, he said the MY2013 RRS were going to plummet price wise and he was trying to switch people over to the new model before this happens, typical sales speak I know but it did get me thinking.

To the average Joe there isnt much externally that would differenitate the two, interior wise it's different I supoose.

I was just interested to hear views on whether I should make the steps to sell it before this happens - what does everyone think about the potential depreciation of the MY2013 cars?

Thanks.

Why don't you see what they, and LR dealers in general have in stock around MY 15/16/17 and then get quotes for a 2 year PCP deal - track the guaranteed future values. If they start to plummet, you'll know LR are predicting a future issue and you can get rid of yours well before. I don't think they have shown much of a fall, other than the usual age related one so far. I have mine on PCP with a GMV at 3 years around 65% of what I actually paid, so I'm not that bothered - the relatively low interest I'm paying is my insurance against a collapse of the second hand values. RRS MY17 SDV6 AB

Thanks for the reply. That's a good pointer. I'll get in touch with them and see what they say. I had a look at the secondhand values last night on Auto trader and they dont seem to have taken too much of a hit at the moment. As I mentioned in my first post, to most people they dont look (externally) that much differen. It's not like when the last model changed design.

United Kingdom 2005 Range Rover Sport Supercharged HSE Java Black

I've recently purchased a 2013 L494 and I doubt prices will "plummet'. For me, the new interior isn't a bonus. I've driven a Velar and the fact there's less buttons is a hinderance on the road. Yes it looks nice but knowing JLR, that probably means they just added some extra unreliability in to the mix.

Funnily enough though, I started out looking fora weekend car and nearly bought an F-Type, before ending up with another RRS. The way I see it, you can't drive fast near where I live any more thanks to cameras etc, and the RRS is hard to beat for space and overall cross-country ability. I was dodging every pothole bigger than a 2p coin on my Jag test drives, but it doesn't matter in the RRS.

Lol, if prices of MY2013 examples are about to plummet why would a dealer be looking to take one into stock Rolling with laughter

I love to challenge sales guys who are full of bullshine :lol:and have yet to meet one who wants to do a financial favour for anyone else other than himself

Should the prices "plummet", then the price to change would put most people off, so he wont have a job as he wont be selling.
If prices are going to be as unstable as that, why buy a new one cos in a couple of years the price will "plummet". What a load of Censored His last job wasn't the CEO of Royal Bank of Scotland by any chance? Laughing

Thanks everyone some useful posts. Good point on the dealer taking them in as p/x to then see the price plummet!
