Smile So many choices.... so little time

I ordered a 2012 Ram Big Horn crew 4x4 with the following options:
deep cherry red pearl paint, premium bench seats(I like to have room for 6 if needed), remote start /security system,protection group,anti spin rear differential,392 gears, rear window defrost(credit of -$150 over the power sliding rear window), 121 litre fuel tank,U connect voice command with bluetooth, ram box cargo management system, class iv hitch, trailer break control, spray in bedliner factory done.
I bought it out of town at Drumheller Chrysler because they quoted me the best price. Ask for Armand Tessier (owner) - they treated me very fairly, delivered as promised and didn't try to hit me with any extra fees. It's a family run business and they tend to treat you much better than the big dealerships do. I know that they have about 11 sport models in stock and 3 in transit, but after looking online at the way they are optioned they all retail for about $53805 , so are pretty much loaded. Most even have the sport performance hood which adds another $825 to them too. Have you looked at the Big Horn models ? They are cheaper by far:- but have cloth buckets instead of leather.
But come with chrome running boards,20" chrome clad wheels,fog lamps,luxury group,garage door opener,auto dim rear mirrors,leather steering wheel with audio controls,tow hooks and a light group.Very good value for your money.
They list a Big Horn at retail of $49705,4x4 crew, true blue pearl color, 430n media center, anti spin diff with 392 gears, trailer brake control,hitch,cloth buckets,rear camera, technology group,remote start too. I'm sure that you could likely get it in the range of 35400 or so. To see what they have online, go to the ram site, build they model you want, enter the postal code of T0J0J0 and it will show you what they have in stock. Hope this helps. Tell them Brad from the Hat sent you.......... but make sure to tell them you don't pay for documentation fees ! Good luck and let me know how you make out .

Dodge Canada (at least in NS) had a sale on $14,000 off sticker. It brought a basic sport (which comes pretty well equiped down to $31000 here. Now I'm not sure if that includes freight or not ($1500) but It's a good deal. I could of had a quad cab for $32,000 they had on the lot. I'd push for more than the 9750 factory rebate, they can do better if they want to deal, that's for sure!

I forgot to mention they threw in the nice rubber floor matts at the price I stated ($150 i think they would have cost.)

Those in Canada looking to buy a truck....have you heard of Car Cost Canada?
It will tell you wholesale on the truck and give you a starting point in your discussion.
I got mine exactly at wholesale as I mentioned it and they knew I knew about Car Cost Canada.

Have a look.
Its great for knowing the wholesale cost of all cars, not just Rams.

Let's try to be specific as to MSRP, any dealer discounts, rebates, and final sales price EXCLUDING any tax, license, or doc fees as they vary widely.


My truck is a 2012 Ram 1500 Sport 4x4 crew cab.

MSRP $42,295
Dealer discount $6767
Rebates $4000
Final sales price $31,528
Interesting to see what 14 (more) years of inflation has done:

In 1998 I ordered a truck virtually identical to the one I have & the diesels were on back-order. Local dealer said come get your deposit back & I said get on the dealer locator & find one -- I used to work in the car/truck business & we did dealer trades all the time.

Evidently the salesman didn't want to work that hard & on a friend's recommendation I called another dealer about an hour & 1/2 away. Salesman there said fax me your order form & I'll see what I can find. He called back that evening & said I can't find a diesel with that blue color, but I've got a black one with all the equipment you ordered (Club Cab 2500, diesel, trailer tow, heavy duty everything, 4.10 limited-slip, windows, locks, tilt, cruise, etc.), come look @ it if you want.

Window sticker was just a little below $36,500 -- don't remember the exact $$$ and cents. Adjusted for inflation $36,500 in 1998 would be $51,462 today.

I said equipment is more important to me than color, go get the invoice & started dropping $100 bills on the desk -- cash purchase, no trade-in. Salesman came back with the sales manager who reminded me about diesels being on back order & I said I know -- give me the invoice. Dealer paid $29,997 for the truck, which would be $42,293 today.

They gave me the Dodge bed-liner I wanted & we settled @ $31,400 even (cash), which would be $44,271.11 today.

So (not counting the bed-liner) the dealer made a $1403 "gross" (profit) & in my mind I'd already allowed for a $1000 gross -- if the engines weren't on back order I'd have only paid a $500 gross.

1998 $$$
Sticker price $36,500
Dealer cost $29,997
Cash price $31,400

2012 $$$
Sticker price $51,462
Dealer cost $42,293
Cash price $44,271


My how things change.

Yes, they sure do! Although I feel like I always end up with a pretty good deal every time I go new truck shopping I think it takes 5 years off my life lol. I never trust what the dealer tells me they are making on the deal, or more likely how much they aren't making, and invoice price doesn't mean much to me either. My local dealer takes MSRP and then tacks on "added mark up" Although I shopped my deal before I signed papers with a few dealers they all told me I could never buy the truck for that price .. but I did. Internet shopping sure makes things alot easier and saves you some money. The last two trucks I bought I got right at 25% off MSRP

Just picked up a new 2012 Dodge Ram 1500 Limited Laramie Longhorn last week.

Sticker was ~$57K, and I was out the door for $45.5K plus taxes.

I didn't negotiate as hard as I probably should have, but unfortunately I fell in love with the truck during the test drive...
