Yes, even mid-April 2019 there are still some new 2018s out there. Not finding substantially reduced prices tho. Got quotes on two I like and they only reflect current rebates. Last one was MSRP $34,500, Invoice $33,100, Rebate -$5,250, Sale $26,800.


Found out rebates are higher in areas with lower demand like midwest and lower in my area PNW with higher demand. But, they use your home zip to compute the rebate, so buying out of state isn't as attractive.


D amn, I hate buying cars.
Yes, last time I checked was a couple weeks ago?? About 10K off list... out of Chicago area.... so maybe it is location specific in terms of supply and demand. It definitely got my attention, especially with auto sales on the decline globally and a recession waiting in the wings... all those lease units coming into the market as well... and not real changes in the product... so buy new, but last year's unsold inventory... which has had the 'channel stuffing' problem for years... which seems to be catching up finally. Same warranty for the '18s, right? Same product.... why buy a '19? I would think layoffs are right around the corner.

Perhaps by checked you mean you saw an ad showing a huge rebate. These are misleading. They include every available rebate which most will not qualify for. I'm looking for actual dealer quotes that show the dealer contribution to a discount. So far, I've got $500 on 2019 models and $1500 in dealer discount on 2018 models. When adding that to the standard 2018 rebate, you get $4,200 off MSRP. Not even close to $10K.

yes, by 'checked' I do mean the advertised price listed on autotrader.com for vehicles in my area. Slight variation due to color or option package which I just saw today... silver... of two white ones, one was more due to the 6position driver/passenger seats and cargo LED lights - almost 800 more at 27,150. I do think this is based on rebate et al.. which is why the link for 'check for availability' is always there... but the ad price is usually the same, so these 'rebates' seem the same?

Just bought New 2018 Yesterday...

I Just bought a new 2018 2500 Tall/159" yesterday from a dealer in the bay area of CA (San Leandro CDJR) that was advertising $5000 off of MSRP, plus I qualified for $4500 more in incentives...($2750 Retail Cash, $1000 USAA Certificate, $750 Conquest = $4500)...for a total of $9500 off MSRP. I couldn't use the $500 Military (Retired) incentive due to the USAA one (only one or the other).

They still had (6) 2018 2500's as of yesterday...minus the one I bought.

2018 Stock

I went to a dealer in Puyallup Washington who had a fair number of 2018's left. I bought mine on April 10th. Price was $30,200 for a 136 HT with various options such a tow package, cargo lighting Uconnect system and some other things.
Which dealer? I'm heading to Tacoma today to look at a couple....

I just signed a buyer's agreement on a 2018,159 HR 2500 Ram Promaster. There's a non Ram dealer (Hennessy Buick in Morrow GA). He just bought at auction about a dozen 159 HRs, they came available due to a fleet order that was cancelled. Most have less than 35 miles on them and are sold as used vehicles. Which is great that you don't have to worry about rebates. All still have the new car warranty. He has a few of each: silver, sandstone and dark gray. Most are loaded with cruise, premium appearance package (chrome bumper, fog lights), interior convenience package, power folding mirrors, rear fixed windows with defrost, navigation, Sirius XM, 16" aluminum wheels and 4-way seats, I got a light silver one for $29,900 before fees. Very excited to start the conversion. I'm not connected with them in any other way. Note, their fees seem a little high to me.

INteresting.
As December unfolds the deals will no doubt get better.
Lots of hidden inventory and sales are not exactly booming.

I am looking at 2500 HR 159s in Granite, which is a harder color to get. I have found a few new 2018s, which I can get for about $2500 less than a new 2019. Still trying to decide if that makes sense... Rebates put the 2019 I am looking at $7000 below MSRP. Decisions, decisions. I got to get a look at the invoice on the 2019, and it was about 96% of MSRP. I thought invoice would be lower.

I was looking for a 2018, most were white and I didn't want one. I was getting close to ordering one. I didn't like the wait time of 5-6 months and you don't know the final plice till it shows up. Rebates you have today, could be gone when the van comes in. Hennessy has five 2018 Granite PM, all with less than 30 miles. You can ship it or fly into Atlanta and road trip. Good luck with our search.

Hennessy Buick use ProMaster Listings
Thanks puffcard! I just signed a deal and put a deposit down on a 2500 159" WB High Roof in Granite with lots of options: chrome grill, 220A alt, DRL, Cruist, XM, Nav, aluminum wheels, and badge delete. I'll have to fly to get it, but even with travel it was about $2300 less than the best price I could find on a 2019. It was put into service around Sept 1, so I have most of the warranty. Around $30,600 before fees and only 25 miles on the odo. That Hennessy Buick dealers has several more, nearly identical, in silver, tan, and granite. My wife wanted Granite, and that meant I was going to have to travel from Oklahoma for any 2018 or 2019. My build will start soon!
