The average new car dealer-to-dealer trade price fell sharply in February. Franchise dealerships selling new car inventory to other franchise dealerships received $759 under invoice, per unit, on average throughout the month.

This is down 84% from the previous month.

The February index was based on 605 units sold through Dealer Trade Network.


Under Invoice

85% of the traded units that made up this index were Chevrolet, RAM, GMC, and Toyota models.

1M More New Vehicles

An additional 200k new vehicles hit the market in February bringing the new vehicle count to just under 3M units. This means there are roughly 1M more new vehicles available than the same time last year – which is driving dealer-to-dealer trade prices closer to holdback, on average.
