If your shopping at the right time of year, when new models are coming out, the manufacturers are usually offering 0% on leftovers if you qualify. Yes paying cash, is cheaper than paying interest, but not always. When I have bought new trucks in the past, I always told the salesman I was paying cash when we negotiated a price. Only after a good price was agreed upon would I ask about financing. Then I would tell them I would finance the vehicle with them if they off set the interest percentage.
If you do 2-3 million a year and cant write a 40k check out of operating expenses.... something is terribly wrong.

There is no advantage to financing....unless you dont have the cash.

And 0% is not 0%.
