    Ranger Price Increase?

    There were some recent price increases but your order is protected and won’t cost the dealer any more. Don’t let them change the price on you - tell the it’s price protected based on your order date.

    A very smart move

    Wait for 2023 MY?

    Ford doesn’t care if you buy 2 trucks or 20 trucks. They might question the dealer to make sure he’s not gaming the system but nothing you need to worry about.

    Wait for 2023 MY?

    I’m sure your original dealer would be happy to resell the first order to someone else - you just need to follow up with them to cancel the order and get your deposit back if possible. You don’t have to wait to place the second order - they are 2 separate and distinct transactions.
  6. Well, now you know why you should never purchase a vehicle that you can’t see and touch. Your purchasing dealer can get in trouble for doing that. Tell them you paid them for a truck you don’t have and they need to get on the phone with the other dealership and figure out where it is or give you your money back. You should not be caught in the middle here.

    2022 Super Duty Orders & Discussion

    You create a topic in the tracking forum. Lots of examples.
  8. While the GM letter does mention selling vehicles in excess of MSRP it doesn’t actually prohibit it and dealers have been selling corvettes above MSRP for years. What they are actually prohibiting is the same as Ford - charging additional reservation fees or increasing the price after the order is placed. The ADM warning is a bluff. If the customer agrees to pay $20k over MSRP up front and that’s what they are charged then GM has no say and neither does Ford. You may not like it but it’s not illegal, unethical or against the franchise agreement.
  9. I’m guessing there isn’t enough room below the tailgate due to the spare tire and/or it wouldn’t be strong enough. That would solve all the issues though.

    Surprise GTPE Acquisition!

  11. Read the current topics in the superduty forum. All the answers are there.
  12. But it’s still buying well below MSRP. And the dealer was also discounting off MSRP and selling near invoice in most cases.

    Howdy from Texas

    Read the top 2 or 3 posts in the superduty forum. That should answer all your questions.

    Not with Edge and Ecosport disappearing.
  15. Never mind I forgot the regular Ranger was getting the 2.7.
