    Huge dealership can sell below invoice because they mostly work off volume, so yes, you can get that reduced! I got mine for almost $700 under.

    No doubt you can get it cheaper. At the very least you can get it invoice minus the rebate. I've been offered this deal by 4 separate dealerships. As DriverSound said, if the dealership is large enough you can probably get it below.

    What exactly are they saying is invoice price? And what is the exact truck you are looking at getting?

    I actually have a jeep now. Imagine that.
    remember, the dealership isn't your friend, you can always get a lower price.

    Good dealerships would actually show you the invoice. Talk to a fleet manager.

    I believe it cost them a little over $200 to trade a car with another dealership. Dealerships would always want to sell what they have on their lot. I suggest you do your homework and go to toyota.com and get a list of dealership around the area and do an inventory search at each dealership website and find where your truck is and go there. Have that dealership sell you that truck for invoice or lower. When you're ready to buy that moment, they won't let you walk out of there for a few hundred loss under invoice.
