Are You Looking at Kelley Blue Book Before You Buy Your New Car?

This post was sponsored, but opinions are 100% my own.

It's here! It's finally here!  New car buying season is about to begin and I'm itching for something fun, exciting, and a smart investment all rolled into one!  In order to do that, I can't just look at body styles and engine specs alone; I need more!  I need a crystal ball to consider our future and see what that beautiful new baby of mine will turn out to be like in the years to come.   I need Kelley Blue Book!

Kelley Blue Book, The Trusted Resource®, is the vehicle valuation and information source trusted and relied upon by both consumers and the automotive industry.  I have always looked to them when buying or selling used vehicles, especially after last year. Last year I was fortunate enough to spend time with Kelley Blue Book and learned everything they do with the cars.   With their Kelley Blue Book Best Buy Awards, consumers can now see the future of their new-car before they ever take it for a test drive!  If you're looking for the "cream of the crop" of all available 2017 model-year vehicles, look no further than Kelley Blue Book!

The Kelley Blue Book Best Buy Awards are the culmination of a year-long regimen of expert vehicle evaluation and testing of nearly every new vehicle available in America, along with analysis of a broad swath of vehicle-related data, including vehicle pricing/transaction prices, 5-Year Cost to Own data (which includes depreciation, insurance, maintenance, financing, fuel, fees and taxes for new cars), consumer reviews and ratings, and vehicle sales/retail sales information.  What does this mean for you and I?  It means that all the research has been done for us!  All we need to do is look to Kelley for answers.

Go see the winners of the Kelley Blue Book Best Buy Awards!
The 2017 Honda Civic is named Kelley Blue Book’s Overall Best Buy of 2017,
alongside Best Buy Award winners in 12 major vehicle categories. 

What are you looking for? A small car, midsize car, full-size car, midsize SUV, full-size SUV, minivan, pickup, electric/hybrid car, performance car, luxury car, or luxury SUV?  Kelley Blue Book has already tested them for you and provided in-depth insight that you cannot afford to overlook!  Visit the awards home page at and choose to "see the winners" in the vehicle category you are considering.  From there, read what Kelley Blue Book discovered about the vehicle you love best, AND before you travel down to the dealership, find out if your new car will still be a smart purchase five years from now.  Once you find your new car, even helps you be sure you're getting the right price AND the right dealership in your area!
