T48 is on a distinguished road

Was at a dealer today & test drove a 13 Quad Cab Hemi 8 spd 4wd Big Horn that had a
msrp of 39690. They went down to 34270 then add ttl. Nicest sales guy you could ask for, but know they can do better. SO the truck is on their lot & I am at home.

Do want to clarify something though as I am hearing a different twist on discounts. You guys saying you got X off of Y price. Are you including the package discount?

For example. The truck I looked at today msrp is 39690.
Big Horn package discount is 3200 on the sticker plus destination. Dealers theory is 39690 + 3200 = 42890. So 42890 - 8620 = 34270. There is your 8 grand off.

Have seen a Ford dealer sell at 25% off of sticker. They were adding the msrp + package discounts, then taking off the 25%.

My thought has always been the package discounts are packaged from the mfg. What ever discount of 7-8-10 grand off begins at the 39690 number, not the inflated number. Am I wrong?
