My cousin has been working as a car salesman at a dealership for many decaded. He indicated the following. There is more profit in selling a used vehicle than a new one. The amount of profit depends on what they gave as "trade-in" on the vehicle. Usually, the older the vehicle the more profit. In your case the vehicle is 5 years old. Also comming into play is the popularity of the vehicle. If the truck is still popular it will demand a higher price. If you could contact the previous owner it would be easy to determine what he got for the vehicle in trade and work from there.

When buying a vehicle I usually offer the NADA trade in value or 10% over rather than retail value. Dealers usually buy the vehicles for less than the posted trade in value as the websites are often greatly inflated. If they wot take the offer look for another truck someone will. I purchased my expedition "valued" at 7800 for 4000. Got my f150 valued at 10000 for 5000. it can be done you just have to be patient and look for the right deal.
