I have talked to three different dealers in the past two days. They have sold a total of four 2007 Tundras. They also seems to be approximately eight in stock at each dealership. This is in the puget sound area of Washington.
So how are they selling in your area?

I haven't seen any on the road yet, but I'm an hour away from the nearest dealer too. It took awhile to see the 1st gen show up here. I may not be in the middle of nowhere, but I sure can see it from here.

The dealer I ordered mine from has sold several. Their first group had completely turned over by the time I got back a couple of weeks later.

Smoke2, what king of pricing have you been getting here in PNW?

Even though I didnt buy mine from the local dealer, they have sold 4+ in the last 2 weeks.

I know of three local toyota dealers in the Denver metro with Tundras on the ground...both stripped out reg. cabs and nice double cabs.

Pricing varies...most are asking sticker, but one local guy is advertising $2000 off. I'm sure you can snag one of them for invoice if you work at it though.

I have not decided on a tundra yet. A Puyallup saleperson quoted me about $1000. under msrp is all they are willing to sell them for but I didn't sit down and make any offers though.
I'm not going to pay more than a couple hundred over invoice for any vehicle. My last four vehicle were at invoice or below.

I got Puyallup down to $2k under MSRP which is $2k over invoice.

Best deal I have seen is out of Portland, 5% over actual dealer cost, still is about 1K over invoice. Dealers aren't going to sell for much less than a 5% profit, they wouldn't be able to stay in buisness. To get anywhere near invoice in the NW, we will have to see some sort of rebates and/or incentives.

It is going to take a long time to get down to invoice, I think alot of people bragging about getting invoice on this forum may be sandbagging a bit, but that is just my opinion. Then again, most of the braggers are in the SET region, and the prices are inflated already, keep in mind, SET's invoice is different than what the NW sees.

Just drove by 1 of 2 Toyota dealerships in Tucson and there was not one single 07 Tundra on the lot. I'm going to say they've sold at least 10-15 of them. So far, I have only seen one driving around; couldn't see the plate so I don't know if it was the owner or just a test drive.

I have yet to see one on the road and I live/work within a ~20 mile radius of at least 5 dealerships.

The one closest to me has had the same 4 trucks on the lot for at least 3 weeks, maybe 4. One dealer about 10 miles away claimed at week 2 that he had sold 3 of their first 5, but I don't know if I believe it.

And yet, after trying to work a deal with four area dealerships, nobody around here was willing to give up more than 1000 off MSRP, and nobody wanted to do much to find what I wanted either - "these things are just too hot, we can't keep them on the lot" - was the message I kept hearing. "Maybe if you wait until summer we can make a deal at the price you want, but right now it's supply and demand and we're not discounting much."

Yeah right. I just closed my deal with the Internet salesguy from another state. Sticker was 34903, I'm paying 32K (he claims that's $250 over invoice - I didn't see his invoice, but that's the number I wanted). Had another out of state dealer offering me 400 over invoice on a slightly different build. I'm also getting more for my trade than anyone in my area. I don't mind driving to go get it - I certainly don't want a lot boy to drive it 300 miles to my house. And it's the only way I could get the build I want right now anyways.

We'll see how long they keep up their stonewalling without moving any inventory.

I swung by the local dealer today to see if any crew max's had shown up yet. Still nothing. They did have 12 07's in stock though. I thought that sounded pretty high for a truck that is so big and great and supposed to be in high demand.

Are these things not selling or whats the deal? I sat in a double cab on the showroom floor and wasnt overall impressed. It didnt seem terrible, but for being the biggest cab available with a 6.5' bed, I was pretty let down.

They did have a decent selection of base models, sr5's and limiteds, with reg cabs and double cabs both with short and long beds.

Our dealer had 2 DC and 2 reg cabs 2 weeks ago and they still have them. Have not seen the first one on the road here. I'm affraid Toyota may have priced theirself out of the ballpark on this truck (and I may be wrong). I look to see some nice rebates on them this summer, especially if gas goes over 3 bucks a gallon (and it will).
