To be honest I have never driven the 15 or 16. When I was searching for my truck I was going to get a 16 because they were giving better deals on them. The two dealerships I went to first had 16s that I liked, but I would not test drive them until they made me a trade in offer. One dealership would not even make me an offer on it because it did not have a clean carfax...rear ended 3 weeks after i bought it. The 2nd dealership offered me 4 grand less than what I owed on it. Both of those dealerships asked me to take a test drive anyway but I refused, because I did not want to drive a truck I could not purchase. After that I was just going to give up and run the wheels off the car and forget about getting a truck, but another dealership 30 miles away kept emailing me to come up and let them look at my car and see if they could get me in a truck I wanted. I reluctantly drove up there fully expecting to drive back home disappointed again. To my surprise they offered me $8000 more for my car than the previous dealership. I was really kind of floored. They only had one Canyon on the lot and it was a 2017 All Terrain, which is the Trim I wanted and was going to buy at the other two dealerships, this one had the added bonus of also having the All Terrain X package. It had more goodies and a higher MSRP than I was looking for, but my wife and I both agreed, we could not look a gift horse in the mouth and do a deal to get out from underneath a car that was damaged goods. It gave me a $4000 down payment which was nice. I did not get a great deal on the truck, only $1500 off MSRP, but no other dealer was going to give me what I got on that damaged car...which was pristine by the way..fully repaired to factory spec...but still no clean carfax. I am sure the dealership will not make any money on that car and may lose a little, but they made out pretty good on the Truck. Sorry for getting off track on topic, but to answer your question. I would not trade in a one year old car in good running condition that has not been in an accident on a new one. That is a financial hit that is not necessary. My issue was different because I was dealing with a car that had lost allot of its value and was only going to get worse, it only had 11000 miles on it. Then again it is only money and you can't take it with you...do what makes you happy if it doesn't cause you financial hardship. Doing what makes financial sense is not always the right choice!
