About Edmunds APIs

Edmunds APIs allow consumers and dealers to look up information about a car by license plate, VIN, and more.

What is Edmunds?

Edmunds started as a booklet publication company in 1966. Its goal was to educate buyers about the car buying process and the quality and reliability of the vehicles they were interested in. Today, users can go to their website or utilize their smartphone application to get information.

Many consumers rely on Edmunds’ True Market Value, which analyzes a variety of factors to estimate a suggested fair price. The True Market Value Calculator on Edmund.com allows visitors to see the average price other users are paying for any given new or used car to aid in their negotiating. Users can also search for new and used inventory in their area on the site and app, and the Edmunds Price Promise guarantees that the internet and dealer prices shown are accurate.

In 2021, the company was purchased by CarMax for over $400 million.

How does Edmunds work?

Details about vehicles are sourced directly from the manufacturer’s database. Information accessed includes standard features, options and option packages, specifications like horsepower and torque, vehicle dimensions, the Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price (MSRP), and the retail price. However, the miles per gallon (MPG) data comes from the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), not the manufacturer or dealer.

Pricing information comes from dealer databases.

Who is Edmunds for?

Edmunds is an excellent resource for anyone in the market for a new or used vehicle. The more educated a consumer is, the better decisions they make when purchasing.

Likewise, anyone who offers vehicle reviews, tips, buying strategies, or the like on a website or in an application could use the Edmunds API or one like it.

Why is an Edmunds API important?

Edmunds APIs and those like it help educate consumers on fair market prices for vehicles. Without APIs like this, researching vehicles would be extremely time-intensive.

What can you expect from the Edmunds API?

APIs like Edmunds should connect to reputable databases that provide current and accurate information. Furthermore, no identifying information should be transmitted, and the end-user should be able to easily understand the results.
