Dealer wants my truck.. I want a new 2011. how do i get a good deal?

Hi, I've been looking at trucks for awhile and working with my local dealer. there has been nothing on the lot that is right and no dealer trades that work either.. there has been two that were close enought to get a price on and i was not really impressed with there offer... best so far it has only been $3000 off of sticker on a $54,788 pickup... I have been comtacted by the dealer a few times now wanting me to trade in... and then the other day i was called and offered a straight buyout of my truck and has told when something did come in they would give it to me at next to invoice price..Don't know about holdback or any of the other tricks they use...They obviously have my truck sold if they can get it...I would think with this motovation they would be offering me a much better price to trade for a new truck... what should i exspect for a desent amount off of a new truck considering im trading in something they seem to really want....Thanks

I guess what i was looking for with this post was a general idea of what you paid for your truck under what sticker was... and if holdback was known... that is all... if you can help out great,,, thanks...

I can't help much because I'm in Canada and the prices are a lot different($77k sticker, $16k off). BUT.....I sure as **** would want more than $3k off sticker. Regardless of your trade-in situation, I would be looking for 6 off. Normally close to 10, but they are in really high demand right now, and it is taking forever to order a new one I hear. But, once you add in your trade-in deal(since they want it so badly/have it sold), I would definitely be looking for $8000+++ off sticker. Not to mention, aren't there any rebates? Or is your 3000 off on top of the current rebates? If they don't want to deal, go elsewhere.....plenty of dealers looking to sell out there.

the deal they were offering me was for $3000 off in incentives off of sticker price... i was not impressed... but you are right they're aren't that many on the lots... I was thinking at least 6 to 8 grand off... 10 would be stellar.... I've heard talk about holdback but have no idea how that all works or how much it is.... thank you for your input.

I have heard 15% off sticker is extremely feasable on these trucks plus rebates. I got 18% percent plus rebates on an F150.

My local dealer is over $4000 off plus additional $3000 in rebates. That is straight off their website. Could probably do better than that if I worked it hard enough. This was on an nicely equipped LT with a sticker of about $51k......food for thought

Most of the time they only show the current rebates off list and inflate the value of your trade-in. The difference is all that matters on a trade, don't get hung up on the price unless you buy it outright.
