Trade In Value on 2014 Mustang GT for 2015

Has anyone had any experience in the past with trading in a fairly new car, for a new model car? I have a 2014 Mustang GT Premium that came with 3.73 and 19 inch rims. I am curious what the trade-in value would be when the new 2015 mustangs came out? I have never traded a car into the dealership before. I really want a 2015, but I don't want to take a massive hit on my car.

Is it paid for? If not then you'll probably be lucky to get them to pay it off and walk away with no payments, depending on how much you put down to start with.
Probably be better to sell it yourself before the 15's come out, but you'll have need transportation until then. It's tricky if you only have the one vehicle

Dealers are gonna dump all over our Mustang's knowing we want a 2015 and will do their best to basically steal them...Thats how they operate. Always have.

Selling it yourself is your best bet. Otherwise the dealer is going to steal her from you.

Bend over, grab your ankles and pray they lube you up plenty.

You might consider enjoying the 14 for a year or two, because they are supposed to be introducing higher HP versions of the current engines. That way you don't take as big a hit and you get the better version S550 and the bugs worked out.

I would just determine what your willing to take on your car and go around to different dealerships. I traded in a fairly new car when I bought my mustang and wasn't to picky on the color/options, just wanted a base M6 with the sync package. Went to a few dealerships and the trade in price I ended up taking was 2,000 more then the first dealership I went to. I just wouldn't be 100% set on walking into a dealership one day and buying one regardless or else there is the possibility you will take a big hit on it.

Best advise I have heard. A dealer will never give you anywhere near what your trad is worth. Yes its easier to trade and not worry about selling yourself but you'll take a huge hit.

You may want to first test things out on Craigslist...if you paid 30k for a new on, the dealer probably will offer not more than 22 p 23k

I think factory markup on new stangs will be $5k or more.

If you're looking to get into a GT prices around $35k for a base model would be my best guess. Private part is definitely the way to go, especially if it's in great shape with low miles.

Since posting about picking up a new one, I've been kicking around the idea of a 11-12 GT500.

the only way you won't take a hit is if you keep it.

I didn't bring up this two month old post from someone with only 6 posts and I'm sorry for keeping it alive.

Oh man I can only imagine all the fun dealerships are probably going to have flipping basically new 13/14s that are traded in for 2015+ models.

Don't get me wrong I love my v6 and I've only owned it for 3 months but if I can get a good deal on a gt I'll probably go for it. Need more powaa!

I put down 5 and paid off another 1k so far I wonder if they would even let me do it or if I would take a big hit.

I'm afraid you'll take a big hit. I don't think they will give you even close to what your stang is worth. Try and see, you can always tell them no!

I sold my 2009 Fusion for a 2010 when the new bodies came out, HATED the old ones compared to the new ones. I paid $19,300 for my '09 they gave me $15.500 after 8 months and 6,000 miles I sold that for my mustang gt convertible . I had 34,000 miles on it, I paid $22,000 for the '10 fusion, they offered me $12,500 I sold it private party for $16,000. Got the new Mustang gt convertible for $21,000 from a wholesaler friend. Sell it privately or get shafted. My 2 cents

Oh also the last day of the month is the BEST day to buy one, dealers are desperate to meet quota's deals/ bonuses.

As other's have stated, hold out and wait to see what the feedback is and what issues inevitably come from being the first model. Also, I second the person who said go in on the last day of the month. I got my stang at a KILLER price even after being upside down on a car.
