Congrtas on your new truck! You did get a good deal and it looks to me like they discounted your truck as much as they could and then overpaid (for a dealer) on your trade. I have seen people getting overpaid for their trade but not when the new vehicle is heavily discounted. I have purchased several new vehicles over the years and have never quite come to understand how a dealer arrives at his "rock bottom" price. When I was shopping I had a competeing dealer tell me there was no way I could buy my truck for the price I did. Even the dealer I bought from plays price games. I found my truck online and the dealer was offering $6767 off MSRP plus any rebates. When I was ready to pull the trigger their online discount went from 6767 to 4767. I was mad but they agreed to give me the 6767 discount they previously advertised. Now on the web site they are not even listing discounts on some of their vehicles.
I always seem to come out OK when I buy a new vehicle but I doubt I'll ever understand how the dealer arrives at his price.

I am a salesmen and i dont know where all the numbers end up all the time haha. We try not to play games at our dealership and it actually costs us a few deals here and there because some many people play the games.

What I do know on mine is i got all the discounts i could possibly get on the new one and considering my truck had about 750 dollars worth of paint work needing done, he overpayed by about 1500 bucks.

all of it was to hit our volume number. a week before he was going to give me 6500 for it if i traded it which is why i opted to sell it before he made me this deal. First dodge in my family ever and i love it 2000 miles into ownership. happy chevy convert here! and ive had several from ford and chevy come to the dodge side.

I'm a Ford convert .. was always a Ford guy until I bought a 2011 F150 Ecoboost
Since you're in sales what do you think of the 6767 discount I got? MSRP was $42xxx. I had dealers telling me that was impossible and below cost. Do dealers sometimes have inside promotions going on with the manf so they can do that? I bought mine towards the end of the month and end of the 2nd quarter but they actually raised prices during the last week of the month right before I bought mine. My local dealer wanted $4K more for an almost identical truck and said they were barely making any money on the deal. I'm just trying to make sense of it all but am still scratching my head over it. New vehicle prices have always interested me for some reason.

It sounds perfectly possible to me from MSRP. alot would depend on rebates and that goes by region. Certain dealers, like mine on how i got my deal sometimes get a bonus for selling so many so if you bought at the end of there month and they were pusing for a sale number, they could have given away the profit on your deal to make the retro money for all there sales.

for instance mine was a discount from MSRP of $8950 as a dealer employee which isnt a whole lot better of a discount. but thats denver region.

Just to clarify I got the $6,767 discount plus rebates of $4,000 for a total of $10,667 off of MSRP of $42,295
In my area $3500 was pretty much the standard rebates for everyone and I got another $500 for the military rebate.

That would still be possible just not as likely. For that to be actual the dealer prably gave away EVERYTHING unless stuff is priced different where your at. so like i said prably an end of the month deal to hit a number. Sounds like you got a smokin deal to me though if thats the case.
