Meanwhile, four of the top five models with the greatest price gains were versions of two full-size vans: the Chevrolet Express and Ford E-Series. The Express 1500 had the biggest price increase, up 4.8 percent ($1,014), and the E-250 Super Duty was a close second with a 4.5 percent ($1,015) jump.

The charts detail used cars from the 2012 to 2014 model years with the biggest price drops and increases. To be eligible for the lists, a model had to have at least 250 cars in Cars.com’s national search listings.
