What is base price?
The Bankrate.com financial term of the day is: "Base Price."
The base price is the cost of a new car before you start adding all that optional stuff that you might want the vehicle to have, such as a navigation system, heated seats or souped-up wheels. The price covers all the equipment that comes standard and usually includes the factory warranty, too.
The base price is a kind of starting point for the cost of a new car, and you'll find it printed on the window sticker, also known as the “Monroney sticker.”
