Got my 2019 GS in August last year with a MSRP of $45,000 for a discount at $37,000 because it was end of the year. That a 17% discount and the best I have ever heard of. Several dealers across the USA have a used version of the same car now for $29,000 to $33,000. That is average depreciation IMO.
I honeslty got maybe $1500 off, that was probably because I got one that was on its way already so its not like it was sitting on the lot for awhile, but I don't feel like discounts are a good giveaway at depreciation, you can get a hefty discount ($5000 in some cases) on a Stinger GT which is the same MSRP of my GS yet with the same KM's have around $10k less depreciation. Plus trucks have some of the biggest discounts around but usually depreciate the least out of common vehicles.
The funny thing is there are very few out there. I was watching the used market for 4 months after production ended in Germany for a GS and the pickings were slim. You’d think prices would be stable with that being the case.For shits and giggles, I had my GS appraised. Yea, no. I'll be hanging on to it. Even the dealer I work for wouldn't give me what we all would want for our Regals. Tried Carmax too. Everyone is offering crumbs for these things. A few months ago, there was a new 2018 sportback still sitting on a dealers lot here in Houston. It's crazy. I'm just gonna pay this thing off and keep it for the sake of having something that hardly anyone else has and being a head turner.

It is odd, maybe because it is just a Regal, but like this things are from Germany, pack a ton of features, are very well made, I mean the interior materials aren't great but its all well made and solid, reliable, never had one issue with mine, great performance and great all wheel drive. But thats my theory aswell, being so limited after a few years, when they aren't on sale new anymore and the market sees that maybe it'll be a good time to sell.The funny thing is there are very few out there. I was watching the used market for 4 months after production ended in Germany for a GS and the pickings were slim. You’d think prices would be stable with that being the case.
perhaps in a year or so after so, since so few are out there, depreciation will plateau. That’s my guess anyways
Mainly for me the high chance parts will be expensive and take a good while to ship to North America in a couple years, my GS didn't have a block heater installed at the factory but it was supposed to be installed, the heater arrived right away but the cord took 4 months, I literally didn't have a block heater for a while winter, who knows how bad it could be later.Why would anyone get rid of such an unicorn?
If these cars were marketed right we never would of gotten the discounts most did. I like best kept secrets. I buy my car to enjoy not to brag about. Knowing the dealer helped since he encouraged me to try the car I never gave a second thought about. Got in when the going was good. Kudos to all who were so lucky and recognized they have a lot to be thankful for in these cars.The Regal TourX was about $10,000-12,000 off MSRP or about low $20's. You cannot buy a 2.0T with 295 lb-ft of torque with torque vectoring AWD that can see 30 mpg in just every driving condition with +70 cu ft of cargo hauling for that price today!
