Am I being unreasonable?

So, kinda stumbled across a dealership, about 4 hours away from me, that actually has a 2017 Ram 3500, Bighorn edition, CTD, AIsin transmission, tow package etc...


They had it listed for $49,500. It is brand new, never been titled, which I found somewhat odd, but I guess there's a few around.


Anyways, I have a 2014 2500 , and I have been contemplating getting a 3500 in anticipation of eventually getting a 5er. Figure I have plenty of time to wait for a good deal. This, I thought, I could work a good deal, since it is already 2 model years old.


Most they would come off the truck is 2K. $47,500 plus TTL is best they would do. I think that's too high, even if it is new. I would think they'd want to get rid of it, or at least be willing to deal, but apparently not.


Maybe Im being unreasonable?


Mike

I got a total of $9,000 off on a special order 2019 f250. Sometimes you can make out better on current model year vehicles than leftovers (I don't know why)

How's many miles on it? TTL? what is that? If it is trade maybe they are moving money from that to the new truck. Having 2 numbers to play with makes it hard to say yeah good or bad deal

It's brand new, no miles.

TTL = tax, title, license

SRW

Dealer says MSRP was $62K.. I don't know about that.. Says he cant go below $47,500. I offered $42K. Maybe $42K is too low, but $47,500 is too high in my mind for 2 model years old.

Haven't priced comparable 2019's.

I was not playing with trade. Going straight for bottom line price on the vehicle.

I bet someone drove it as a dealer car... And they don't look at it as a 2 year old truck. But as a new truck on the lot. And or it had been dealer traded a bunch so they aren't in a bind to sell. So your typical thoughts might not apply. Also someone eventually will pay what they want.

Around where I live msrp is good price as most have second stickers. If it really is 62k MSRP I don't think it's too bad of a price.

Also see what they want for a 19, there are so many games in the auto business nothing surprises me anymore.

I think he'll get what he is asking for it and then some.

It's still a new truck. 47.5k for a new Diesel is a great buy.

Looking at the odometer picture in their ad, it's got 65 miles. Assuming it hasn't been driven beyond that.


Sticker says $62K. 20% off that is $49.6K. Maybe I am being too unreasonable in offering $42K.


They probably will get what they want out of it.. We will see if they come back with a different offer. Probably won't, but Im fine with my 2500.
