    5.7L 4x2 Double Cab w/ TRD, bucket seats, upgraded stereo for $250 over invoice. Had several other offers for invoice to $600 over. Got excellent trade-in value for my 2006 Honda Odyssey Touring and got both the $1000 incentive and $1000 trade-in incentive. I paid $4300 out the door incl. TTL and they let me pay for it using my credit card for milage rewards. :)

    i just looked a double cab without TRD and without the stereo and it was a 4x2 5.7L. Sticker was like 31.1k, what am i looking at paying for a truck like this? :confuse:
  • jfritschjfritsch Posts: 958
    It will probably depreciate about 10k from msrp first year just like the titan and the old tundra, as well as the chevy and ford full size. You want 5-8k off list, just like with the Domestics and the old Tundra.

    Good luck

    From own experience and what I read on other forums, any Tundra can be head for invoice to little over invoice. I would check Edmunds for the invoice price, add approx. $500 for TAD (Toyota Advertising Fee) which Toyota charges every dealer and then add up to $500 over invoice. Finally deduct cash incentives if you don't use the low APR financing.

    Sticker on mine was $31,258 and I paid $28,800. Invoice incl. destination and $502 TAD was $28,542.

    Hi bugchecker- you've got the one I've been looking for, can you give a ballpark of what you paid with all the options?
    Thanks for sharing!

    I am having an arguement with my dealer over a deal I made on a 07 Tundra DC on May 29th. Is there anyway I can find out what the dealer cash was on that date?
  • mpaschenmpaschen Posts: 7
    No factory-to-dealer cash was advertised. Factory-to-customer incentive varied by region and DC model. 4.7L was $1000 in most regions and $2500 in others. 5.7L was $1000 in most regions but I think some southeast regions were offering higher incentives.

    To find out what you can really buy a new Tundra for find the web-site for Jim Barkley Toyota in Asheville, NC. All new Toyotas in inventory have the MSRP and selling price listed. In the case of the 2007 Tundra, they are ALL marked down between 4.5K and 6.5K off MSRP. Their business plan gives you the best price without even asking. They will hold it the same business day if you desire to fly in and take delivery. Hope this helps.

    In Southeast cash to customer was $2500 from May 11th till June 4th.
  • tomktomktomktomk Posts: 7
    I realize that the dealer and Toyota need to make some profit. However, the dealer cash and a trade in allowance was not disclosed to me at any time during the process. Had I known that Toyota was participating in the deal (besides the 0% financing), I would have pushed for a bigger discount. Now I am not so sure that I got as good a deal as I thought. Is this an acceptable practice?
  • mikefm58mikefm58 Posts: 2,882
    You mean they didn't tell you how much they were giving you for your trade or it wasn't even listed in your purchase invoice??? :confused:
  • tomktomktomktomk Posts: 7
    The $1000 dealer cash and the $1000 trade in allowance were factored into the trade and discount of MSRP. That is what the dealer is telling me after the fact. What I didn't know at the time, was that the $2000 total was coming from Toyota, not the dealer. The dealer made it look like it was part of their discounts. Had I known that Toyota was participating, I would have pushed for more dealer participation.
  • abac1abac1 Posts: 19
    I had similar situation. I priced a truck coming through the pipe line. Dealer cash was available but not mentioned to me. By the time the truck arrived there was hefty cash to customer rebate. Had to really fight to get the difference. After I had taken delivery another dealer called when the rebate went up to $3000 and made me a price on the truck I was looking for. If you took away the cash Toyota was providing the price was higher than a similar truck they priced right after the launch when they only were discounting $500 to $700 off of MSRP.

    Went to dealer here in FL to look at the crew max, and didnt love the interior...saw the xsp package on a DC with the 4.7 (shifter on floor not stalk) and got a offer of 36 mo's at 399/mo with 15k a yr mi. The sticker is 33,500 approx. MF .00190, buy out 22k. Selling price in lease= 31k. seems like theres a good bit of room based on the other posts here...it was the first price I got and left to do more research..anyone have any idea of deals on a 4.7 DC with the XSP (leather +20 inch BBS, r.boards, lumbar etc)
    Thanks
  • noles2gnoles2g Posts: 3
    Just to add to this Im really just looking for leather and lumbar (back problems) but would love a 5.7 as well. I dont NEED 20' BBS (does anyone?) All the ones ive seen are like 41k sticker in this form. Dealer telling me they wont order one that way...I'll have to get a limited...is this BS?
  • rappcovarappcova Posts: 24
    The current $2,000 manufacturer to customer incentive (on the 5.7L DC) seems restricted to vehicles that are financed through Toyota at an APR "as low as 5.99%". You can either do that or take 2.9% financing without the $2,000 cash. Am I interpreting this correctly? Back in March, I placed a factory order with a price $995 over invoice, which came to about $1,900 off MSRP. I know there are better deals out there, but in my area, that's a real good deal. The truck is due for delivery in the next 2 weeks, and I was wondering if I could negotiate a better deal because of the $2,000 incentive. But I think not, because I'm paying cash and the incentive seems linked to financing. Am I reading it right?
  • tomktomktomktomk Posts: 7
    I believe there is $2k or 0% over 36 to 60 months.
    If you are paying cash, your money, 30k to 40k spent on the vehicle would probably earn more than $2k over 36 to 60 months if you put it in a CD or a money market account.
  • abac1abac1 Posts: 19
    There normally is an either/or with rebate and low financing.Go to Toyota.com;click "find local specials"; zip code;local dealer; monthly specials; Tundra; body style. This should give you current Toyota incentives. I am in the southeast and looks like we are up to $3000 rebate or 0% financing for up to 60 months if I looked at it correctly. 4.7L engine is $3500.
  • jfritschjfritsch Posts: 958
    These vehicles, all over the country are being advertised for 5-6000+ (roughly invoice-rebate) off list like most of the other 20 mpg trucks and such. Better deals are and will be possible in july-august. The $40000 vehicles for probably more. If you have a $1900 off MSRP deal by all means you want to walk away if possible and get something much better.

    There was a brief spike in demand with the new intro, (and the Chevy Silverado too with the truck of the year award) but that is gone now and they sell much like any other truck.

    Check out my message 692 in the pickup forum under midsize pickup comparo thread.

    A member has a point that if you actually have 30000 or so banked for a truck I would negotiate a 4000+- off MSRP deal instead of a 6000 off MSRP deal for 2.9% or so financing and keep my 30000 liquid in one of numerous banks advertising 5%.

    --Good Luck

    jjf and others: Thanks for your thoughtful responses. To beat a dead horse, let me ask for further comments on my specific situation. I may have made some mistakes and need to know if I can correct them. I had to do a factory order because I wanted BENCH seat with off-road package. When queried, Toyota responded with "not recommended"--meaning that the wait would be long. I went ahead anyway, with a $500 deposit. Now the truck's about to be delivered. Unfortunately, I sold my '04 Tundra to Carmax for a good price at the end of March, so I've been without a truck "forever". I'm wondering if I'm in a position to negotiate. I suppose I could walk away--even if I have to forfeit the deposit--and still come out ahead. But the prospect of having to do another 3-month factory order is just about out of the question. So do you think my best bet is just to try my best to re-negotiate (the ESTIMATED price) and if they refuse, just grit my teeth and pay up? I really hated to do that factory order, but it was just impossible to come up with my preferred configuration. Amazing how truck drivers today all want bucket seats! Appreciate your interest and prompt responses. --rappcova--
  • jfritschjfritsch Posts: 958
    In general, the idea is to put 10-20 dealers in competition for your business over the phone/email last week of the month. This goes for factory orders too. These should be cheaper than those on the lot if the incentives apply as the dealer has no carrying costs for the thing to sit for 4 months.

    I noticed the bucket seat thing with the Tundra. That console does take up a bunch of room, but Toyotas market research seems to point that way. Funny though most of the Silverado's,F series and Dodge Ram 1500 I see have Bench seats like you want. I see some truly incredible prices advertised for the $35000 dodge RAM 1500. Like 17000 18000, $19000. The fact the Ram looks kinda like the tundra makes me mention this. Whether the Tundra is a better truck is open to question but it is definitely not 7000-10000 better. Many ads are for a minimum of 12000 off. (its msrp is hi) F series seems to be about $9000 and the Silverados will soon be approaching 8000 plus off. Have you even tried test driving the alternatives? No 3 month wait for any of them.

    If you just gotsta have a toyota with bench seats (in the future put your deposit on a credit card) Tell them your buddy bought one from an ad for 6000 off and you are having second thoughts. See what you can work. Tell them you have a dealer bugging you to buy one for almost off MSRP, and maybe bench seats aren't that important after all. Take your time picking up the vehicle. Chances are he won't want to sit on your unusual (and hard to sell?) order even with your deposit and will compromise.

    If you have a true 1900 off MSRP deal I would not want to pay that or thousands for bench seats.(you must be a true Toyota aficianado)

    Good luck

    If you decide to walk away and are firm on the bench seats you may want to evaluate what you want from the off road package. I have seen a few trucks without "off road" that had sliding rear window. Skid plates can be added after market, tires upgrade when factory tires need to be replaced. Suspension and shocks are not as simple. It may come down to what is more important to you money or features. I love my new Tundra but I hated the buying process. Good luck!
  • rappcovarappcova Posts: 24
    Thanks again, jjf and abac1. Yes, I'm a Toyota (truck) aficionado. This is my 8th since 1990. I like to trade and do so whenever there's a technological or design change or when my needs change. This time, I'm going for the increased safety features--especially airbags and stability control. TRD is important to me because I drive on gravel roads twice daily 365 days/year, sometimes down one side and up the other side of giant potholes. Bench is because one Lab sprawls over the front seat and the other sprawls over the back seat. (Lexus GX-470 is my "nice" car which has been doing double duty while without a truck.) I went today to a different Toyota dealer who assured me that the incentive will apply to my truck as long as I pay for it before the incentive expires on July 2. Doesn't matter that I put down the deposit (WITH a credit card) when there wasn't any incentive. I agreed to the $1,900 off MSRP, so if I get the incentive, I'll feel OK. The other dealer says
    the current incentive is $2,500. We'll see. I'll be sure and post a note when this is over. Y'all have been a great help. --rappcova--
  • I just picked up my 07 Tundra SR5 dbl cab 2 days ago.
    I Sold new Honda autos 10 years,i know the buisness,i presently am a f&i mgr of a m/cycle atv store. I helps to know someone in the buisness.
    Took me 2 days to get my deal.I bought 2wd pyrite dbl cab.
    sport appearance pkg & 20 " alloy wheels, and leather upgrade, MSRP 35.670.(a demo that had 2325 miles on it that had been there 1 month states.I specked one out to my liking at 36.537. This is where it go fun. I'm an ex car guy.
    They told me the weren't gonna be able to discount a order
    truck as much as the demo, somewhat true onlt $1496.00.

    I said ok let me think about. No high pressure, just told them if i couldnt get the deal i wanted i'd wait pay on my truck few more months. Went back to work,called them back2 hrs later. Told them If i was not gonna get the exact truck
    I wanted they were gonna have to sweeten the deal a little more.It wasn't the fact they couldn't discount a spec order
    truck that was not gonna cost them any floor plan Money the weren't.

    I asked for $500.00 more off and a free Rhino lining. No
    way he said. He called Back 15 min. later with my $500.00

    Deal.... bottom line MSRP $35.670 discount $3.957.00
    bumped my trade another $500.00 bucks. took the 60 mo
    0 interest. This is a BIG Truck 5.7 engine. I've owned 4
    Dodge p/ups, and this thing rides better is quieter. Don't know about gas mileage yet, we'll see.

    Rebates just went to $3000.00 bucks too if ya'll didn't know
    There are deals to be made it might take awhile to find them. I guess i was lucky that I new the process. and I live in a small town. Just my experience.
  • jfritschjfritsch Posts: 958
    4000 off MSRP with free money for 5 years is a great deal. If you even got near nada wholesale for your trade you probably got an 8000 off MSRP deal.

    Happy Driving
