Why it's on the list: Insurance; Used Price; Depreciation
Next up is the first Ford of the list, the Ford Explorer. Although most utility vehicles don't usually have high insurance rates attached to them, this one does. On top of that, the price you pay for this two-year-old vehicle is rather close to the starting price of a new one. Right now, you can expect to pay between $24,000 and $26,000 for a used model, and almost $30,000 for a 2013 model. For what it's going to cost you in the long run, you're much better off with the newer edition.
