Larger automobiles (light commercial trucks, Caravans, Campervans and Lorries), like Utes, trucks, 4WDs and vans, will have more materials in them. This instantly means that they will in general be more valuable than cars. The weight in steel alone means that you will be able to sell that automobile for much more money than a car would get.
Each year, new automobiles get more and more efficient, as they are fitted with the newest technology. The older a car is, the less advanced you can expect the tech on it to be. This is one reason for why cars that are older are less valuable than vehicles that are in just as good condition but were manufactured more recently.
If your automobile is in great condition, it can be assumed that it has a lot of parts on it that can be salvaged. This is true for scrap cars as well as used cars. The fact of the matter is that a vehicle can have a broken transmission, and be scrapped as a result. It just means that it would cost more to repair that car than it is worth.
All the other parts on it can still be salvaged and sold as second hand components. A vehicle that has been in a crash and most of the parts have been ruined will be less valuable. The materials can still be sold as scrap metal and so forth.
Parts for popular car makes will be in high demand. This results in said parts being more valuable. Parts that are in less demand will be harder to sell, so parts vendors will price them lower in the hopes that the low price will motivate someone to buy them. This is why when a scrap car is valuated, the make and model are taken into account.
