You really just need some ammo! Get the offers off the Internet or maybe even get an offer from Carmax, I know it may not be what you want but its just to have something on paper for a dealer to have to match or beat.

end of the year, the special pricing you get may not get you the best deal.

I agree, sounds like their offer was too low. But that is pretty much always the case when trading in any vehicle.

you have to know what trucks like yours are selling for in your area to negotiate.

Not that it matters much at this point, but I found a 2011 Big Horn with 52,000 miles selling for $24,500. Mine is a laramie with 30k miles, so I would think that would be worth more than the big horn. Do you think a few vehicles from auto trader that are similar to mine are worth bringing in for negotiations?

lower miles and a laramie should be worth a little more but most likelt not as much as you think. prices are regional so auto trader may or may not help. it won't hurt to try though. trying a different dealer might not be a bad idea either.

I have a few dealerships I deal with. And the one offered me 29 for my 11without even seeing it. That I've had for 2 years . to the month. And it has 20k on it. But i hve bought 2 brand new cars there. I wasnt wanting a new truck. But thats where I bought my truck and they call me every year to make sure I'm satisfied and see if there is anything I want/ need for my truck and if I do they always cut me a deal on the price if I buy it in January. If u dont need a new truck. Then I would call around to other dealers and see what they will give u. Heck u could try and sell it yourself. And when it sells go buy thr new one. If it doesn't sell. You still have a nice truck. Jmo tho.
