Not only did the Toyota FJ Cruiser win the top spot for midsize SUV by Kelly Blue Book, but it came in first place overall with a 36-month resale value of 76 percent, according to KBB. ALG rated the FJ Cruiser's resale value at 61.8 percent.

The FJ Cruiser will likely appeal to people wanting an attractive looking off-roader, but this SUV also drives well on city streets and on the highway, according to KBB. Adding to its resale value is the FJ Cruiser's reputation for reliability.

The 4-liter, six-cylinder SUV has 260 horsepower and can tow up to 5,000 pounds. It comes equipped with water-resistant seating surfaces, rubber floors and a fold-down rear seat with removable bottom cushion.

Standard in the FJ Cruiser is a six-speaker audio system with satellite radio, iPod connectivity, hands-free phone capability and built-in Bluetooth wireless technology. The FJ Cruiser's Star Safety System includes vehicle stability control, traction control, anti-lock brakes, brake assist and Smart Stop Technology that helps bring the vehicle to a complete stop.
