I'm not sure why no one seems to post prices paid on so many cars and trucks these days. Maybe everyone is leasing??

I just purchased a new 2016 Ford F150 Super Cab, XLT with the 302A package, chrome package, 2.7L V6 turbo, blue jeans. I received a total of $5050 in rebates, there was $1,500 in equipment discounts and the rest was dealer mark down. MSRP was close to $42,000 inc. delivery, sale price was $32,250 or $35,250 OTD 8.75 tax. Purchased the car at Livermore Ford - an hours drive. Internet sales person there gave me a no hassle price and made sure I wasn't missing any rebates including $500 from ford credt and a $750 on line bonus cash offer.

After driving a 2004 F150 for 12 years it's pretty cool to have a new ride. I even got 23 mpg on my road trip home and the Truck is super fast for a truck.

    Congrats!

    (maybe you'll start a trend - anyone else buying?)

    I see price leaders in the paper now offering $12,000 off MSRP for a Super Cab XLT with the 302a package.
    The dealers are really pushing hard to move inventory right now. Avoid the Ford financing if it will cost you thousands in rebates - you're better off taking all the rebates and going with a credit union.

    Interesting - the slump in car sales is beginning to worry the majors a bit, but truck and SUV sales are still going strong.

    We have a cash rebate vs low APR financing tool here.

    that's a good tool to have. I did the 'not so low' finance with Ford to take advantage of a $500 rebate. It was 5%, but I will pay in off after one month.

    The guy who I bought my truck from did mention that their sales had really fallen off in Q2 this year. Most sales people are not forthcoming with news like that.

    I think everyone who needed a car and could finally afford one after the recession has gotten one. So the buying pool may be shrinking a bit.

    And yeah, a Kia dealer suggested that I take the low APR to get the rebate and pay the loan off when the first payment rolled around.

    Everyone's got an angle. :)

    I'm curious, if a person fails to notice or mention a rebate, does the dealer keep it? the factory? or are the rebates automatic? I ask because the big three have a dizzying array of incentives from military, first responders, graduates, contractors, on-line incentive, loyal customer cash, ford credit cash, equipment package cash, ...........
    It just makes a mockery out of MSRP. Even invoice is very suspect these days.

    My last Ford purchase did have the "dizzying array" of incentives and there was one $500 discount for "contractors". I wasn't a contractor at the time, but I did rush out and get a business license from my City Hall for $100 and that made me qualified for the $500 discount. I have no idea who keeps that money had I not qualified, but the guy in the finance dept. was great to guide me through it.
