Used-vehicle values rose substantially in 2020 and 2021 as supply chain shortages resulted in limited new-vehicle supply, but values began to decline throughout the second half of 2022 as OEMs ramped up production and new-vehicle supply increased.
What should lenders expect in 2023?
An in-depth discussion on used-vehicle value normalization will take center stage at Auto Finance Summit East during a panel that includes Kristen Lanzavecchia, director of industry solutions at J.D. Power; Jeremy Robb, senior director of market insights and business solutions at Manheim-Cox Automotive; and Alex Yurchenko, senior vice president and chief data science officer at Black Book, on Thursday, May 11, at 1:45 p.m. CT at the JW Marriott Nashville.
Auto Finance Summit East takes place May 10-12 at the JW Marriott Nashville, providing knowledge, networking and key takeaways for auto lenders. View the full event agenda here.
Used-vehicle values peaked in January 2022 before ticking down throughout the year, hitting their lowest point of the year in November when the index hit 199.4 — a 15.6% decline from January’s peak, according to the Manheim Used Vehicle Value Index which measures wholesale used-vehicle prices.
As used-vehicle values continue to normalize in 2023, panelists will discuss used– vehicle depreciation rates, changes to wholesale channels, the return of incentives and what it means for values, and segment-by-segment valuations to create the right portfolio mix.

Power, Lanzavecchia provides data-driven insights and recommendations to OEMs while working to ensure accuracy in the forecasting model and valuation guidebook updates.
