iSeeCars, an automotive research firm and data-driven car search engine, recently analyzed over 1.9 million used car sales from June of this year and compared them to sales from the previous year. 

Over the past year, used car prices on average increased 32.7% or $7,583 in June. This comes after a 26.4% year-over-year increase in May and a 16.8% year-over-year increase in April.

Some used car prices increased nearly 50% while others had a slight increase of 11.4%. Sports cars and pickup trucks saw the highest price increases, while small SUVs, hatchbacks and minivans only saw a small change.


“The microchip shortage has brought historic used car price increases, so much so that some lightly used cars are more expensive than new models,” said iSeeCars Executive Analyst Karl Brauer. “While used car prices are expected to remain elevated for the foreseeable future, we are waiting to see if prices are going to keep rising or if they will start to decline towards pre-microchip shortage levels.”

In Seattle, three of the top five used cars with the greatest year-over-year price increases were pickup trucks.

In fifth place, the Chevrolet Silverado 1500 increased by 42.4% or $13,617 from June 2020. The similar GMC Sierra 1500 came in fourth place, seeing a 44.4% year-over-year price increase. The Chevrolet Camaro, in third place, increased by 45% or $11,790. The last truck on the list, the Ram 1500, ranked second on the list with a 45.1% price increase, barely scraping by the Camaro.

Topping the list of used cars in Seattle with the greatest year-over-year price increase was the Mercedes-Benz G-Class. The vehicle increased 45.9% from June 2020 and saw an average price change of $50,890.
