May Index Increase
The average new car dealer-to-dealer trade price rose sharply from $4,052 per unit over invoice in April to $5,062 over invoice in May. This was based on 537 traded units throughout the month of May.
81% of the traded units that made up this index were Chevy, Ford, GMC, Jeep, and Nissan models.
This was a 24.9% increase over the previous month’s trade index price that coincided with a significant decrease in floored inventory across the country, which dropped under 1.2 million units on the ground nationally.
The decrease in national inventory seemed to have an effect on the trade prices that selling dealers were able to receive for new inventory throughout the month of April.
