Default Amount required to order R/T

Hey guys,just wanted to know what is the minimum amount required down to order a new R/T.I spoke to one dealer when i took a test drive and he said they required 500.00.I was wondering if this was across the board or do different dealers require different amounts.The reason i am asking is i will have the money to pay cash in a couple of months but was thinking about going ahead with the order now and by the time it comes in i will be able to pay in full.That way i won't have to wait 2 months longer when i have the cash.Thanks

That seems fair. When I was gonna order a new one, my dealer told me I wouldn't have to put any deposit down as long as the ordered vehicle was something they could sell anyway. But if it's something you want, $500 doesnt seem like a stretch to me...

I've ordered 2 vehicles in my lifetime (I'm 51!); a 2000 ram air formula and a 2011 dodge ram rt. Both required a 500 dollar deposit for the dealer to place the order. They apply the 500 to the sale price once you do your financing after the truck comes in. You should also negotiate your sale price for the truck B4 you put your 500 down! I know I got 2500 in rebates from the factory even though I ordered the truck. 500 for military, 1000 for southeast customer cash incentive, and 1000 for ordering a "hemi" engine. Do the research on what the msrp and dealer cost is for the truck you want, and then go in armed with what you are willing to pay. If they don't want to play, walk!

Yup. 500 dollars is pretty much the standard.
