Ford F-Series Prices Paid and Buying Experience

  • Looking to purchase an F150 Platinum Truck and with the rebates and ford financing getting quotes of $7400 off MSRP. This does not sound like a deal to me on a $51,XXX priced vehicle. Any suggestions? I am willing to travel for the BEST PRICE!
  • For a truck that holds it's value like a balloon that doesn't hold air thats a bad excuse for a deal. If the truck has 5.0 v-8 you should easily be at $12,000.00 off msrp of $51,000.00. If truck has eco-boost $10,000.00 off msrp is a fair deal. If michelle bachman gets gas below $1.00 a gallon then the reverese is true on the two engines.
  • Any leads on which dealerships to contact? I agree we should be more in the $12,000 range for a discount! Again, I am in Omaha, but I will travel...thanks!

    I just purchased a 2011 F150 FX4 Super Crew Long Bed loaded up. MSRP of $47,040.00. Purchase price of $37,040.00 after all incentives and rebates from Ford. Researched and put in offers with 6 different dealers until I found the lowest price. Had to drive about 50 miles but it was worth it for sure. Looked at Toyota Tundra but after seeing them on the road wasn't crazy about the styling. Love my F150 so far
  • Price paid $21,500 plus TTL. Southwestern U.S. Very unpleasant experience with high pressure dealer, even though the price was probably not rock bottom.

    Next time: Go ahead and let the high pressure guy buy the inventory and pay the salesman. Then go to low-key place to make the deal; they all share the same inventory, after all.
  • I'm looking at a 2011 f150 fx4 also, just wondering what were all the incentives you got so I can ask the dealers. Thanks
  • Looking at some left over 2011 Crew Cab Lariats. There are several of these around in the Sarasota, Tampa, Orlando area. From what I am hearing from dealers is $3k in rebates. I would think one could get 10k to 12k off of sticker on these especially in light of recent fuel costs. The sticker price of these trucks range from $45k to $49k. Does anyone have information on dealer cash or other incentives Ford may be pumping in to make these trucks go away?

    I live in the Tampa area and drive a 2007 F150 Harley. I subscribe to this forum and I'm surprised at how slow it is and the fact there are not many posts. The Honda forum for the Odyssey is great. Anyways, I have been sniffing around and I think 10-12K off MSRP for a 2011 is probably pretty good. If you check autotrader several of the auto dealers advertise as much as 10K off MSRP depending on the configuration. I think these are "real" prices not ads, especially given the incentives out there and rebates, etc. The best way to find out is to start getting quotes and shopping around. Most of the internet departments are pretty solid and up front, from what I have found, they want to move the vehicles. Some are more aggressive than others so ping 6-7 dealers and see what you get back. Then make sure to post back here so we can all benefit.

    I have sent out some feelers at 6 dealers in the Sarasota, Tampa, Orlando area. I have gotten back information from 2 at this point. I have found that there is only $500 separating the Ford incentives from model year 11 and 12. I contacted dealers about both 11's and 12's with similar equipment. The dealer that emailed me back on the 2011's offered a price that equated to $800 over invoice less rebates. Not very good considering I got the same discount on a 12 from the other dealer. So I am not seeing at this point why you would buy an 11 when competing dealers are offering 12's at the same discount. I have to believe that Ford must be offering some dealer cash to move these 2011's but I have yet to get solid information on this. As previously stated one should be able to get 10K to 12K off of MSRP on these trucks considering the direction of fuel costs. More information to come.

    I completely agree if it's just $800 separating an 11 from a 12, buying a 12 is a no-brainer. I would ask if the 0% financing is available for the 11 including the incentives versus not combinable for the 12's. That works out to some significant savings depending on whether you finance or not. If you build a list of F150's in AutoTrader you can see a few dealers post prices under MSRP, and one dealer off I-4 closer to Lakeland stands out with pricing. Make sure you include them they have lots of 11's left too. Let me know how it goes.

    Here is the latest information I have reveived from dealers in the Tampa, Orlando, Sarasota area. It seems that there is only a $500 difference in rebates between 2011's and 2012's. There are better financing options with the 2011's such as 0% for 60 months or 1.9 for 72 months in lieu of a $2K rebate. Most of the repsonses I got back from dealers is they are willing to sell 2011's and 2012's for invoice price. The delima is why buy a 2011? What I am surprised at is Ford has made the 2012's more appealing to the buyer than the 2011 and there are a ton of these left in inventory. That is why I figured there would be some maufacture to dealer cash that would make the 11's more appealing. I figured a person could buy a 2011 for less than invoice price before any rebates. So far I have not been able to get such a deal especially since dealers do have 3% in holdback but many of these units have been sitting on lots for a lomg time and that holdback money has been eaten up. I will update more later.

    Great info, keep me posted. I was hoping you would have said the 0% financing was combinable with the 2011 rebates, thus making it a few thousdand different between the 11 and 12 models. I forgot - what type of F150 are you looking at?
  • cwa318cwa318 Posts: 51
    The finance piece of this equals to 0% for 60 and 1.9 for 72 plus $2K in rebates. I have been looking at crew cab 4wd with Ecoboost Lariat or FX4. The MSRP is between $46 and $50.
  • Starting the process of buying a new FX4 screw. One with the Ecoboost eng, luxury pkg, and 20 " wheels has a MSRP right at 46 k. How much off MSRP can one expect at this time of the year ?

    I just bought a 2012 F-150 4x2 Lariat SuperCrew with the Plus package, EcoBoost, Leather Bucket Seats with Console, Chrome Step Bar, Tailgate Step, Body Color Power Folding Heated Mirrors for $32,900. MSRP was $42,815. I think I got a good deal... They were originally quoting me $34,150 and I got several dealerships here in the Houston area that said they couldn't match or beat the price. Anybody care to offer their comments? Agree? Disagree?
  • Taimgxe,

    What rebates and other factory incentives were included in your price?

    Thanks for your response.
  • taimgxetaimgxe Posts: 4
    Rebate of $2,000 plus $1,000 thru Ford Motor Credit plus $750.00 for trade in. The price of $32,900 is before the trade in value was applied.
