Necro post as im learning all I can on my new car while waiting on it to be delivered.

I ran some 'for sale' numbers on Cargurs but more on that in a minute. I was gong to replace my L322 after 5 years of ownership in 2015 but was gobsmacked at the residual value of 13-14 full sized RR's. I thought it was some sort of miracle SUV and decided to just drive my L322 for another year.....which turned into another 4 years. During that time, I would periodically check the used car market to see if they had come down in asking prices. It seemed as if they were retaining value better compared to other luxury SUV's.

So here are the numbers of full sized Range Rovers for sale in the USA. Nationwide search on cargurs, all colors, all engines, all miles, all prices, dealer and private sales. Autotrader yielded similar results.

MY2013.......86
MY2014.......341
MY2015.......309
MY2016.......1009

The above numbers are as of 8/11/2019. Unless Bolan is way off base, the only way to account for the lack of 2013 RR's is low production numbers. But according to the below link, 2013 RR sales in the States was 12,221 compared to 12,830 in 2014 (I suspect these numbers also include Sport, Velar etc). If Bolans theory is bogus, I would like to hear a plausible theory as to why there are 70% less 2013's for sale in the US compared to 2014's.

I bought my 13 used with 5k miles on it in late 13 and I paid 95k for it! Crazy times but that 5.0 V8 gets badass gas mileage. 1 tank a week. I had to sign the no export promise or I had to give dealer 25k!!!!! If I did export it. I shopped around and all dealers had 3-6 month waiting lists. I wanted white on white, last year they offered the white interior. Now 13’s go for 28k - 55k depending on model hse versus Autobiography.
When I replaced my P38 with the L322 it was easy peasy. Not to mention many affordable used options. Ive been passively L405 shopping for 4 years waiting for some of the hype to die down and its been frustrating to say the least. BTW there is a clean Fiji/Ivory 2013 NA V8 RR with 31k miles from Texas for sale in MD. I was ready to pull the trigger, then test drove a supercharged V8 and that engine was a must have. Price is mid $40's.
