Quick Answer: What Does Invoice Mean For Cars??

Invoice price (sometimes referred to as “dealer cost”) is the price that appears on the invoice that the manufacturer sends to the dealer when the dealer receives a car from the factory.

Please note, however, that this price is almost always higher than the amount the dealer actually ends up paying to the manufacturer.

Do car dealers have to show you the invoice?

There are generally two prices you’ll encounter for each vehicle, the MSRP (Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price) and the Invoice Price – which is what the dealer pays the manufacturer for the vehicle. But to do this properly, you need to see a copy of each dealer’s official vehicle invoice.

Do dealers really pay invoice?

The invoice price is what the dealer pays for the car from the manufacturer, the price you pay is called the retail price. Meanwhile, the price on the window sticker is the manufacturer’s suggested retail price (MSRP), or what the manufacturer hopes the car will sell for.

What does employee pricing mean when buying a car?

This program allows GM employees and family members to purchase or lease a new car or even a used GM vehicle from the dealer at a price that is lower than the MSRP. In many instances, these discounts mean significant savings off the normal price of a used or new car.
