Ordering a TRD Pro Army Green - Possible to make a deal?

Hey everyone,

New to the forum and looking forward to hopefully having my hands on a new 4Runner soon. On that note, I have been doing a ton of research and know that the TRD Pro in Army Green is the one for me. I realize I am behind the curve but I am wanting to order one through a local dealer (one closest to me says they can still get them). Some of you may read this and wonder why I wouldnít go find one sitting on a lot somewhere and that is a good question, but for many factors I wonít go into, timing is everything and the 45-60 days the dealer told me helps me on that timeline so Iím willing to wait.

Iíve recently read that there are some dealers across the nation that have knocked a few thousand dollars off TRD Proís sitting on their lot, likely due to reduced sales from COVID. Iím wondering if it is possible to negotiate a deal on a TRD Pro upfront knowing the dealer would need to order it? Iím not looking to drive a hard bargain here, I realize they are hurting and wouldnít want to take advantage of that but if there was a way for it to be a win-win in that they get a guaranteed sale on a car that they will have zero holding costs on, whether asking for a deal upfront is reasonable.

Thoughts?

I see them knocking off some cost on the ones on the lots but not from an order.

I got one from the lot, midnight black with stupid little dots, and got stuff for free and it was marked down to 48k. Also got an extra 2k on my trade in. I robbed those jokers but they were desperate. My TRD Pro had 4 miles on it. Which gave me some anxiety because with a new engine you never know if something is breaking and hasnít been long enough to notice.

But anyway, I would say youíre looking at better deals if youíre willing to travel to get it. Could also drive to a state with no sales tax to save a little.

Use cars.com or comparable site, search there will give a great indication of who's got them with contact info. i just checked, there are almost more green pro's (134) than all the other colors combined in "all miles"

My local dealer said that they would have me one in 8-12 weeks...that was in January. I found one out of state, paid list, and another $1500 to have it delivered half way across the nation in a week.

American Toyota in Albuquerque, NM claims to have 2! Send them an e-mail. I bought my 2018 Limited from them and worked with Adam Milinazzo. Not sure if he is still there but you can give him a shout - Adam Milinazzo at Adam.Milinazzo@lhmauto.com.

Good luck.

The sales tax savings wonít work. You have to pay sales tax for whatever state youíre gonna register it in.

If you really want to buy a new AG TRDP, I would start looking for one on a dealer lot.
When I picked mine up my salesperson told me that they arenít taking anymore orders because they are pretty much all allocated.
Might be true, might be false...
Not really worth sitting around and missing your chance to get what you want.

For what it's worth, my AG TRDP was $4k off back in February. That dealer was willing to trade the black one they had to get me one I wanted. That didn't work out, so they "stole" one off the boat that was bound for another dealer apparently.

They got me exactly what I wanted in terms of options and everything. That's after they told me that they couldn't really order one, because that not how Toyota worked. They said that Toyota basically sends them what they send them, and that orders with specific options aren't really a thing.

It all worked out in the end though.

Did you ever figure out what caused the stupid little dots or if they can be removed?

I think itís part of the paint, no way to remove. Itíll require a new paint job. Iím going to do that anyway though at some point down the road. I havenít decided on the color but probably some shade of red.

It needs to be professionally done to do it right and thatís costs at least 4-5k so I gotta wait a bit.

Definitely agree with comments to look at vehicles available on dealers lots currently. The dealer you are working with I bet isn't so much ordering one as they have an allocation coming in that nobody has dibs on. I don't think these can really be ordered per-say, especially considering they are all coming in from Japan.

If they'll give it to you at MSRP and you don't want to play games or have to pay for shipping a vehicle, that may be the best you can count on at this point.

I got the first one allocated to Avondale Toyota roughly November 1 last year and got it at MSRP with a solid trade in on my 2016. That worked for me at that point. A lot has happened since then .

Not a bad plan. No worries about scratches and have some fun until you repaint.

The stars must haven aligned or something but I got lucky today and found a TRD Pro in Army Green that was in transit to a dealer here in DFW that was not already allocated. Went up to the dealer and worked out a deal. There had been a few other people asking about the car shortly after and so had I of gotten there any later I might not have gotten it.

WTG congrats. That's how I got mine, none anywhere nearby, signed up with trucar and 10 minutes later dealer 2nd closest to me called and said they had one 2 weeks out. It never hit the sales floor.

What kind of deal did you get?
