ORLANDO, Fla. -

The 2013 model-year vehicle winners of the annual Best Resale Value Awards were announced Monday by Kelly Blue Book, with most coming from the assembly lines of Toyota and Honda.

Toyota’s 2013 brand is projected to be the overall top resale vehicle line by Blue Book "throughout the initial five-year ownership period."

That is the standard for every vehicle on the company’s  best resale list, which includes only one American brand name: Jeep Wrangler.

In a statement issued Monday, the company said "low-volume vehicles and vehicles with a MSRP of more than $60,000 are excluded from award consideration, except in the luxury and high-performance categories."
