    That would be a great deal in Memphis.
    Maybe I should go to Houston.
    What dealer was it ?

    McRee Ford In Dickinson, TX (Suburb of Houston) Last time I checked, they had 3 F-150's for the same exact MSRP price I paid with the exact options.

    All right folks,
    I looked at this thread looking for advice and didn't find it, so I'll post mine in hopes that it helps some one else:

    traded in the truck from page 46 of this thread

    had 33,500 miles but I really wanted a 4x4.
    Got a 2012 Supercrew 4x4 5.0 at Helfman Ford in Stafford, Tx on 7/3/12
    $41, 945
    -$1500 Chrome, tow, Convience disc.

    $40,445 (Blue line)

    Gave me 20,000 for my trade (Fair offer maybe 500 low.(+ Tax benefits of trade in, + trade in rebate ($750)
    Got rebates for financing with Ford, XLT, 5..0 etc.)
    ALSO...requested a brochure from Ford and received a $750 private cash offer/ coupon.

    Anyway after it was all said and done $28,250 before tt+l

    So is this $13695 below sticker or $12195 below sticker?

    How did I do? Please give me your input good, bad or indifferent.

    This may be helpful for some prospective buyers.

    I live in Kansas City and priced FX4 in KC, St Louis, Oklahoma and Dallas.

    In the end I wanted it fully loaded and ended up driving to Tulsa, OK for the best deal.

    I just purchased a 2012 grey FX4 with ecoboost, luxury package, sony premium sound w/ nav, moonroof, tailgate step, brake controller, LT275/65R18 tires, and running boards.

    We started at the invoice price 44370 (which included 1660 in luxury and premium discounts, plus 134 gas and 582 advertising fees) and got down to 43830, took off 4500 in rebates (finance 1500, customer cash 2000, trade in 1000) which came to 39870.

    Minus 5000 trade in (2005 base Kia Sorento manual with 90k miles and in good condition) came to 34870.

    TTL (4311) and doc fee (195) came to 4506 for drive out price of 38836.

    (These are before TTL)
    Edmunds True Market Value: 45468 - 2500 (rebates) = 42968
    TrueCar Price report showed 6 month ave sale at 44815 with the below market cutoff at 42584.

    I got offers on FX4's from different dealers with fewer options (these include the trade in 3500 to 4500 range, but before TTL):

    FX4 5.0 V8, Sony premium sound, Luxury package, Runing boards, Tail step, Brake control: 35716

    FX4 Ecoboost, Sony premium sound, Luxury package, Runing boards, Tail step, Brake control:
    33436

    FX4 5.0 V8, Premium sound (not Sony), Luxury package, Running boards, Tail step: 31102

    FX4 5.0 V8, Premium sound (not Sony), Luxury package, Tail step: 31118

    FX4 5.0 V8, Sony premium sound, Luxury package: 31647

    If I had gone with the 5.0 V8 instead of the Ecoboost, there would have been another 500 rebate but the 5.0 V8 felt very sluggish compared to the Ecoboost.

    ***DETAILS OF FINAL PURCHASE***
    (Invoice/MSRP)
    2012 FX4 base (36666/40485)
    Ecoboost (909/1095)
    LT275 (228/275)
    Sony Nav (2050/2470)
    Run Board (378/455)
    Moonroof (826/995)
    Luxury Pack (2760/3325)
    Tailgate Step (311/375)
    Brake Control (191/230)

    Total + 995 dest = 45314/50700

    Discounts/Rebates
    Premium Disc (830/1000)
    Luxury Disc (830/1000)
    Customer Reb 2000
    Trade In Reb 1000
    Finance Reb 1500

    Fees
    Fuel Charge 134.28
    Advertising Charge 582
    Documentation 195

    This surely was the price and some type of trade-in?
  • Been trying to buy, with cash, a 2013 Lariat with EcoBoost, leather, buckets, short box, 501A package. Want the side step cars but don't care if they are chrome. I've worked with two dealers and both insist I use FMC financing. Getting quoted over $40k.....can anyone point me to a dealer that wants to sell a truck...don't care where they are located....
  • I'm Looking for the same truck. Reynolds here in Norman Okla didn't get close. 3-4 k off sticker. Post if you get a reasonable price. I'll do the same.

    dude you have to get the fmcc money to get all the discounts. pay it off on first pmt. you think dealers want to loose money for you! if its your cash or cash from the bank its all cash.

    Just picked up a Kodiak Brown 2013 KR today. Lots of great rebates right now, not to mention some killer dealer discounts too. MSRP was $48,040 after $500 discount on sticker. I paid $37,797 plus TTL. No trade involved as I sold my 2005 Avalanche to a co-worker. Dealer was Sam Pack in Carrollton, TX. I had previously purchased a 2011 Mustang GT and my dad a 2012 Lariat from this dealership.

    2014 Kia Optima SX Turbo, 2013 Ford F-150 King Ranch, 2011 Ford Mustang GT, 2000 Pontiac Trans Am WS6

    Purchased a new 2013 FX2 in race red last night from Joe Myers Ford in Houston. Sticker was 41630, got them down to 30000 plus TTL with tent and spray in liner thrown in at no cost. thought it was a hell of a deal. Only buzz kill was rolling a little negative equity into the deal from being upside down on the trade in, but still was happy with our deal. Lori Anne Richie is their Internet sales point of contact and set it all up when I got there.
  • Just for info after about 4 weeks of narrowing down from toyo/ford/gmc/chevy ended up at at Ford f150 STX with the 201a package Sterling Grey Metalic grey cloth interior no other options.
    Koons Ford Sterling Paul W. was the sellsman and was very good.

    Msrp 31500
    vechile price 23059
    TTL 926

    otd $23,985
    actually was 20 bucks less for some reason with tags/title
    3500 in rebates using ford credit to get extra 1000

    Easy no haggle deal for 8400 under msrp and 5700 under invoice
    no one was even close the closest one was 1700 more
  • Hey surfgermany, did you buy off their website or walk in and do this deal. I see their online deals charge you freight and doc fee but if it wont for that, those are some great prices they have.

    Also, how is the V6 doing on gas mileage?

    Thanks

    I am going to purchase a 2013 F150 Supercrew 4 x 4 with a 5.0 V8. It must include a package 302A(with rear camera). I will buy in 3 weeks or should I wait for Fords Memorial day sale.
    I am trading a 2009 Ranger which the dealer will give me $9,000 (paid for) 3 weeks from now.
    As of today the total rebates are $5750 (better deal than 0%). Any chance of the Ranger Loyalty rebate coming back or more rebates on the memorial weekend sale? :confuse:
  • Started on the website and then the sales staff sent me the price in a email.
    the price on the website had to have added (as the fine print says) 499 and freight (as well as of course ttl) The price on the web included 2500 rebate and 1000 rebate from ford credit if you finance some part of the deal (and of course you can pay it right off in a month and only loose a few dollars intrest).
    so if you didnt finance have to add 1000 to the cost. I was of course skeptical but walked in found the sales man no fuss no muss and was written up in 10 mins with no discussion on price exactly as they said only waiting was for the finance office they were swamped on a saturday.
    Cant say much on the mpg only have put 300 miles on it so far but the computer says 18.5 in all city driving so far. (my chevy malibu v-6 gets 21 on the same loop)

    Well I purchased a 2013 F150 Supercrew 4x4 V8 with the 302A pkg, tailgate step ladder and bucket seats. The MSRP was $42435 and with the Xplan it came out at $38900 below invoice then minus another $5500 only in rebates , because I did not finance with Ford Credit, but at 2.95% interest. Also got a 7 year 75K miles bumper to bumper warranty with the Ford ESP. I got $9250 trade for my 2009 Ranger XLT supercab. My payment is $520 for 60 months I am in Southern California so we got 8% sales tax and other fees. I did not wait for the Memorial weekend sale, which had an extra $1000 for your trade, I needed the truck sooner.
  • So an update on the 1000 dollar ford credit deal.
    So we had saved up the money to buy this with cash but did see the 1000 rebate if you financed with Ford credit so we did 10k finance to get it then when the first payment was due we paid 9500 off then did 2 payments of 268 or something like that to pay it off in 90 days as instructed at the dealer. Got the title this week and it worked fine. so in the end we paid 36 dollars interest and got 1000 extra off seems like a good deal if you are able to buy outright of course I took the savings and bought a bak flip cover .....

    From reading these posts, it looks like a new F150 is the same price or cheaper than a used. Is that what people are seeing as well?
  • just_focusjust_focus CincinnatiPosts: 29
    That is what I have found also. My local Ford dealer here in Milford Ohio has a brand New 2013 f150 crew 4x4 5.0 Advertised for $13,000.00 off sticker. I would hate to be the guys who own a 2012 or 2011 and want to trade it in at this time.
  • just_focusjust_focus CincinnatiPosts: 29
    Just bought a brand new 2013 F150 supercab 5.0 3.55 2 wheel drive last night Sticker was 38590.00 which had a package discount of 1750.00 and then 7250.00 rebates and 2447.00 Xplan discount. Bottom line was 27142.00 plus tax and title. Got about $11500.00 off sticker.
  • Wow, 11-13K below sticker? In NH we see 6-8K below sticker but that is all through email and over the phone. I'm very close to buying a new F150 and see that the inventory in our area is high. Most dealers are not even listing 2014 models yet. I would like to see 10K or greater below sticker mr sales man. I think I will go in on the last day of the month / quarter and wear my poker face.
  • ohenryxohenryx Posts: 285
    The information that you provided is somewhat misleading. If you look carefully at your window sticker, there is a line that says "TOTAL BEFORE DISCOUNTS". That would be the line that stated $38,590. Then, down towards the bottom of the window sticker, there is another line, in a larger font, which says "TOTAL MSRP". That would have read $36,840 (reflecting the $1,750 package discount), and that number was your MSRP.

    If you bought the truck at $27,142, then your price was $9,698 off of MSRP. Which is still a very good deal, congratulations on that. The incentives are really high right now. I'm looking at an F150 XLT, Crew Cab, Total MSRP is $38,645, the dealer has it at $26,024 internet sales price. That is $12,621 off of actual MSRP.

    This deal does require that you have a trade in ($1,500 trade allowance), and you do have to finance with Ford Credit (which is going to stick you for about 4.9% interest, when my credit union is financing at 1.99%). Still and all, a hell of a deal.
  • Starting to see closer to that (about 10K off) now that I am researching current prices. Also noticing that some dealers with identical trucks and packages listing different MSRP on the sticker. Kind of wonder if those are edited before the dealer puts them in the window?

    Well, this might be the weekend I buy something. Also, seeing NE Ford dealer ads for zero percent for 60 plus 1500 off. Have yet to confirm with a dealer though.

    "The information that you provided is somewhat misleading"

    I believe I said it had a package discount of $1750.00? Not all F150s have the $1750.00 discount so I counted it as a discount. I was not trying to miss lead anyone. Package discount or rebate who cares? The original price before discounts is the original retail price.
  • Hi - also in New England - where have you been having luck?

    I am looking for the following and reaching out as far as Maryland and Texas....

    4X4 Super crew
    V8 5.0 with 3.73 (Only) or
    V8 6.2 with 3.55 or 3.73 (need towing capacity over 9000) - not interested in Ecoboost
    Ruby Red preferred w/ Black Interior leather (but open)
    Equipment Group 700A
    Drop In Bedliner
    Tailgate step would be nice :)

    Dont care about moonroof or skid plates

    Might entertain financing if it makes it cheaper.
  • ohenryxohenryx Posts: 285
    9000 lbs? With a half-ton truck?

    I wouldn't do that, personally. Yes, I know, you can get a F150 rated to tow that much, but I would feel much more confident, much safer, using an F250 or F350. I'll go further and say I wouldn't try this without getting the diesel engine. Really, really big difference.

    What are you going to be pulling, a 5th wheel travel trailer or ?? I would recommend that you get on one or more of the many RV sites out there, ask around, get some advice from people who are actually doing what you are thinking of doing.

  • Wow, I can't believe you are all seeing that much cash off. I am in northern Jersey and Dealers are basically giving the invoice price (internet price) and then giving any incentives Ford has on top that's all. I am shopping for a 2013 Screw XLT Eco 6.5' with 302A package and a few little add ons. M.S.R.P $44,550 invoice $40,800 then incentives is about $3,750 and if I trade in an extra $1,500. Which would be $9,250 off msrp. How are some dealers doing 12g off? Now I didn't do any pushing with the dealer just told them what I wanted and let them tell me what they wanted to give, but they said they needed to sell by the end of the month, so I may call up and give a push to see where they can go.
  • Just wondering what your max towing capacity is?

    We just bought a 32 foot RV Travel Trailer and looking for info about which truck we need
    to pull that. It weighs about 5500 dry weight. I think we need about 6000 lbs tow capacity plus
    add 1000 lbs for safety cushion.

    I tested the 2011 Ford F150 with the Eco-boost and it was nice, drives sweet but did not tow anything. I am wondering if it would be better to go with a little older 2009-2010 F150 with the 5.0L V-8 instead?

    Please advise.

    Thanks,
