TODAY’S TIP: If you’re buying a new truck, get the specifics before negotiations begin. Ask each dealer to provide a breakdown of vehicle price, showing the list price for the chassis and every specification option, applicable taxes, transportation and dealer prep costs. Ask about add-ons such as delivery charges and pre-delivery services that could appear after you cut the deal.
