Pricing Confidence Right From Your Autotrader Listings.

The Kelley Blue Book Price Advisor on Autotrader is the perfect tool for common ground.

Kelley Blue Book's valuations are a tool for both you and your shoppers. Review the short videos and get to know the numbers so you can put the Kelley Blue Book Price Advisor to work for you.

How Price Advisor Vehicle Values Work

Most price valuation tools simply take the average of similar vehicles on a website to produce a value. With such a limited number of vehicles being valued, that doesn't give shoppers a full picture. Price Advisor gives shoppers a range of what they can expect to pay this week for a vehicle in your local market of the same year, make, model and MSRP, excluding taxes, title, fees, rebates or incentives.
