History[edit] The company began as the Kelley Kar Company founded by Les Kelley in 1918.[5][8][10] Kelley started the company with three Model T Fords.[11] His younger brother, Buster, worked with Kelley as a lot boy.[11] By using data collected from the dealership, Kelley published the company’s first Blue Book in 1926, which became a standard guide in automotive trade in determining car value.[8][9][11] Kelley Blue Book was formed in 1926, and the Kelley family continued its dealership business in Southern California for several decades.[5][8][11] By the 1960s, the company moved from a car dealership to a specialty publisher and focused on the production of its automobile price guide.[8] Kelly Blue Book guide became the first publication to use mileage to determine a car's value.[12] In 1995, Kelley Blue Book created its company website, which contained tips and pricing information from its hardcopy guide.[13] In December 2010, Kelley Blue Book was purchased by AutoTrader.com.[5][6][14] After its acquisition, the company operated as a subsidiary of AutoTrader.com, Inc.[15] In 2013, the company formed an alliance with Bitauto Holdings Ltd. to expand into China.[16]


Sponsorship[edit] In 2014, Kelley Blue Book signed a two-year agreement with Hendrick Motorsports to be a primary sponsor of Dale Earnhardt Jr.'s No. 88 Chevrolet SS NASCAR Sprint Cup Series team.[17][18]


Services[edit] The company reports market value prices for new and used automobiles of all types, as well as motorcycles.[19] For both new and used automobiles, KBB provides a Fair Market Range and Fair Purchase Price, based on actual transactions of what others are paying for a vehicle and adjusted regularly as market conditions change.[20][21] For new automobiles, KBB also provides information about a car's MSRP and dealer invoice price.[22] For used cars, KBB provides retail value, certified pre-owned value, trade-in value and private party value.[23][24] Kelley Blue Book also offers expert and consumer vehicle reviews and ratings, and 5-Year Cost to Own information for new cars.[25][26]
