It’s Discount Days For 2019 and 2020 Trucks: Here’s The Best

It’s that time of the year when the dealers need to make room for the 2021s as the first step in everyone getting past 2020. It’s been a rough one for everyone. So, rejoice and reward yourself with a new pickup. All pickups are in high demand due to the plant shutdowns-even used trucks. But the pipeline is slowly getting filled and there are some deals out there. It’s discount days for 2020 and also leftover 2019 new trucks. Here are the best out there today.

With data we’ve compiled with help from Truecar we’ve got average retail prices, what the trucks actually sell for, discounts, and percentage off of the list price. We’ve heard from MotorBiscuit enthusiasts that some of you are actually traveling great distances to get the right truck. With the internet as your guide, you can pinpoint the exact options, colors, and prices even if the truck you want is in Duluth.

If you’re looking for the most off of list price regardless of the manufacturer then a Ram dealership is where you need to be. There are still leftover 2019 1500 models. It was the first year of the all-new Ram pickup. We’re surprised there are any left but there are.

You can score 13% off the list price of a 2019 Ram 1500. The tab will be $41,667 which is a tad over $6,000 off of retail. If you’re still wanting a 2020 Ram 1500 over the 2019 discount is $2,852. That will set you back $48,904. While $2,800 off of the top doesn’t seem like much of a score, remember that Ram 1500 pickup trucks are in demand and weren’t made with assembly plants shut down for the coronavirus. 

Ford F-150 pickups are the best-selling vehicles in the US. While Ford isn’t knocking a lot off of the 2020 versions there are also 2019s at some dealerships. You can get $3,843 off of a 2019 F-150 for an average transaction price of $43,064. Stepping up to 2020 the F-150 has been discounted $2,810. That puts the price at $47,300. With the 2021 F-150 being all-new you may find larger discounts as we move into 2021, but that also means you’ll have a shrunken selection, too. 

When it comes to Chevy Silverado your best price is on a 2019 Silverado 1500

When it comes to Chevy Silverado your best price is on a 2019 Silverado 1500. With a $2,852 discount you’ll pay $47,043 for it. Now, compare that to the price of 2020 Silverados. Transaction prices are averaging $46,009. So you’ll pay a bit less for a 2020 than for a 2019. Hgh? That puts the discount at $1,693. 

Moving on to the similar GMC version of the Silverado 1500, a 2020 Sierra 1500 will cost $54,491. That is $2,131 off of the list price. Though similar to the Chevy Silverado, the Sierra will tend to have more options and be a bit more luxurious.  

The internet is your friend when comparing trucks and prices. Be prepared for anything from a pleasurable experience to a hair-pulling pressure cooker that could last for hours and hours. There are alternatives like Carvana and even CarMax if you can’t stand the heat. Slowly car sales are moving toward online sales which will maybe be a bright spot we can look forward to in 2021.
