  1. The Turo Carculator® ranks vehicles based on "Average annualized ROI," which is the ratio of average annual vehicle earnings divided by average annual vehicle loan payments for a specific make and model in a specific region. Earnings are based on a monthly estimation and are multiplied by 12 for annual earnings. The annualized return on investment (ROI) ranking model assumes a standard 60-month loan term, 8.5% interest rate, and 10% down payment on the vehicle purchase price. Past performance does not predict future results. In some cases, the earnings figures were rounded for ease of display.

  2. ¹ Region is defined as one of the top 18 market areas where Turo is available throughout the US as ranked by gross net revenue. These geographical zones loosely follow the borders of Nielsen's Designated Marketing Areas (DMA) map. “National average” represents the average across all 18 top US markets in the model. “US Other” represents the average across all US markets, excluding the top 18 markets.

  3. ² Vehicle budget range is based on vehicle value, exclusive of taxes, fees, and options, and any dealer price adjustments or increases. Vehicle value is determined using vehicle pricing data from Glass auto pricing product.
