Trade Price Index

81% of the traded units that made up this index were Chevy, Jeep, GMC, RAM, and Buick models.


This was a 49.1% decrease from the previous month’s average new car dealer to dealer trade index price.

New vehicle supply has been increasing since May of this year and we’re now seeing over 1.5 million units on the ground, nationally. With the increase in supply, the prices that buying dealerships are willing to pay has dropped significantly.

This is another strong indication that prices for dealer-to-dealer new car trades will continue to fall as supply rises.
