Chrysler Pacifica is highest priced & has higher depreciation versus minivan competitors

I don't buy a brand new vehicle believing it's a good investment (no one should). They all lose $5-$10,000 in value as soon as you drive off a new car dealers lot. My one gripe with buying a new Chrysler Pacifica is the astronomical depreciation it has versus the competition. Don't get me wrong I love my new 2022 Pacifica & would buy it again. But it really is a wake up call to realize that in only one month after purchase (with only 244 total miles) it's value has dropped $20,000 from its selling price! That's by far the highest depreciation of any new vehicle I've ever purchased in 46 years and a real eye opener for sure. Luckily for me I keep my new vehicles for over 10 years on average but if I had one complaint about the Chrysler Pacifica it has the highest depreciation rate by far of all the minivan competition.

Your valuations on other brands show you can't rely on KBB during market volatility. Furthermore, you can't know what will happen tomorrow. If the Pacifica plant will have a couple of prolonged production stops, you'll be able to sell your Pac at MSRP.
I have to use only Mopar parts & accessories & Chrysler service for my new Pacifica or else void my 8 year Maximum Care Warranty
What? You plug a phone charger and it will void the warranty?
Here's the only ride I own that's worth more now than what I paid for it 30 years ago in 1993
When a bike is older than 10 years its age and mileage barely affect its price. Only factors that matter are condition and desirability.
