About TrueCar APIs

TrueCar APIs and those like it provide end-users with up-to-date information about vehicles they are researching.

What is TrueCar?

TrueCar is an informational website providing users with automotive pricing and specs on the vehicles they are interested in. Visitors can see what other people are paying for used or new cars in their local area. Not only that, TrueCar Certified Dealers provide upfront pricing so buyers can enjoy a no-haggle experience. Dealerships pay TrueCar to reach potential buyers, and there are currently over 15 thousand such dealers in the network. Recent reports show that approximately one million transactions are facilitated through their service between dealers and car enthusiasts every year.

How does the TrueCar API work?

There are specific use cases native to the TrueCar API. For instance:

The MSRP has three data callbacks: ‘baseMsrp - required’ brings back the base price of a vehicle before any factory options or destination charges are added, ‘msrpOptions - optional’ includes any factory installed options, and ‘destination - optional’ will show the base plus the destination fee
For pricing, there are two specific callbacks: ‘dealerMsrpSavings’ returns any dealer-specified savings that are offered, while ‘dealerMsrpSavings’ signifies any bonus discounts

Other APIs like TrueCar may provide VIN information, vehicle specs, average local pricing information, and much more.
