Those who have or tried to trade up your WK2
 
What measley amount can I expect for trade-in value compared to bluebook? KBB says $24K in excellent shape for my 2011 Laredo. I'm guessing they may offer more like a sad $21K?

I have 27K miles on my WK2 4x4, and am one of those regretting the V6. It's a fine engine, super smooth, excellent mpg, but I'm used to V8's and power wise it's just not twnking my melon.

You may be surprised at what they offer you, as late model used cars are in high demand right now. So whereas dealers always used to give you the line about "you can't go by what KBB or Black Book or NADA says, we use the mega-secret rainbow book", you'll now find that they'll give you approximately what KBB says...depending on what you're trading in. The thing working against you is that rental companies buy and re-sell Laredo V6s like they're going out of style. Look on cars.com or autotrader and you'll see what I mean. BUT make sure yours is spotless, go in to talk numbers with the understanding that you'll take the new one off their hands today if you like the figures they present and know the exact trade-in amount you want (or need).
