Carmax does the buy option based on wholesale value, not trade in. There offer will certainly be low. Your best bet is to print off KBB, edmunds, and NADA trade in value. Use those as a base line, go to Carmax to get your wholesale value. Then I always look around town to see what a similary equipped Truck is selling for on used car lots. With all that ammo, I go into the dealership knowing how much my trade is worth, what I am willing to take and what low ball number I expect them to hit me with.
New car dealerships make their money on your trade, low balling you. Easy way to make a quick grand or more on a deal.
You will love the new Ford, good luck shopping
