As some of us prepare to enter negotiations with dealers, it would be really helpful to share some key information here to help others:

Trim Level (RT, RTS, Sport, RTL, RTL-T, RTL-E, Black Edition)
Exterior Color
City (County) and State of Purchase
Final Price Before Tax and Trade-in
Trade-in Involved (yes/no)

Reason to ask if there is a trade-in involved is that makes it really hard to determine the actual price paid for the new vehicle. Getting some sense of whether people are paying MSRP, above, or below, especially where no trade-in is involved, will help others in their negotiations.

Thanks!
RTL-E White/Beige. Jacksonville Fl. 37,000 +Tax/fees. No trade

2020 RTL-E
Red exterior / Tan Interior
Rhode Island
Sticker - $42,190 Paid - $36,900 at end May before taxes and registration

The Trade was a wash for me. After their costs to refurbish the trade and seeing what they have advertised it at - I estimate there will be a $3,000 margin in it for them.

RI requires the dealer provide you a "financial disclosure" (though you have to ask pretty persistently to get it). It shows the complete breakdown and workings at the dealership as to how they arrive at what you pay for the car. Though it is not required to show the margin they will make on the trade.
