2013 Jeep Compass OverlandEnlarge Photo
Compact crossovers are hot, but the Compass is a model that's only ever been lukewarm at best. A refresh a couple of years ago brought a mini-Grand Cherokee look that's gone over a bit better, although the proportions simply don't go over as well as they do for most vehicles in this segmenr—or for the closely related Jeep Patriot. For this reason—as well as the reason that Jeep has chosen to introduce another round of improvements in the 2014 Compass—don't expect to get very much when it comes time to trade.

Here's a case where 'professional grade' doesn't do as well as the bowtie; the 2013 Yukon XL won't command as much in resale as its Chevrolet Suburban or Cadillac Escalade ESV platform-mates. Also factoring in is the knowledge that the Yukon will seem dated even in three years. With refreshed full-size 2014 GM pickups (Chevrolet Silverado 1500 and GMC Yukon 1500) already in the works this year, there are updated (and more fuel-efficient) versions of the Yukon lineup waiting in the wings for introduction by early next year.
