Different dealers offer different amounts. Both on the sales price and the trade-in prices.
My experience in the Seattle area was the first 2 dealers wanted to play games offering me well below the KBB price on the 2018 PacHy Touring L when I went to trade in. They advertised reasonable prices on the new one but were low balling 2-3,500 on the trade-in, so I walked. The 3rd dealer had a much better reputation for consumer satisfaction. I went in with my numbers and was upfront with them from the start. They said ok to the trade-in at the price KBB and I wanted, and then came the time for the new one. Turned out that even with quite a few on the lot, they weren't the color and interior I wanted. So they helped find what I wanted from one of the other nearby dealers that had advertised just full MSRP without discounts, and arranged for me to get the 2019 limited with every option for about 3K under MSRP after negotiating a little. They got the auto and I picked it up 3 days later.
Long story short, the CJDR dealers are much different from one to the other. Find one that doesn't play games and is more honest if you can, for a better deal. I know that sounds easier than it is. But putting in another 2 days of searching saved me about 5K when looking at the trade-in and the purchase combined.
Let us know what happens in your search! Don't be afraid to go long distance for a deal if you find the right one!
