Re: Back end resale V8 worth over $2000 more than V6?

Same with my dealer, Hemi's flying off the lot but V6's, while selling, just not at the same pace. It does in-part depend on the area.

A vehicle, especially a new one, is a bad investment. If you are going to spend your hard earned money but it with the engine and equipment that best fits your need and/or desire.

It is difficult to predict what will be desired in 3-years. Perhaps the economy slips further, cost of fuel rises by x2, etc. If so, will masses move their SUV's and trucks to hybrids or sub-compacts. I suspect there will be a movement away from the Hemi once the Penstar is available with the 8-speed transmission and/or the diesel is offered.
