  1. I would add, it makes me think those enamored with the Lariats, Limited's and Platinum's have obviously more disposable income and aren't worried as much about MSRP's and payments...so Ford markets that way
  2. Rather strange how they push certain packages and not others...same with the Rangers....
  3. yep...not only that...when you don't have thousands of vehicles just sitting gathering dust, one doesn't haver to incentivize as much to move them...this time of year theres usually a run on Commercial vehicles due to tax write offs...we don't have product. Current incentives on a Superduty are $1000 + $500 end of year commercial with 3.9...compared to years past, that's a pittance.
  4. rebates are down substantially , and 0% isn't on their whole lineup as WAS the regular practice...Ford literally told us they were cutting production back ( I believe 30% was the figure used ) to avoid dealers stockpiling inventory and forcing Ford to have massive rebates to move said vehicles. The ONLY unit they hjave persisted with large incentives is their crown Jewel, the F150...but even then, the ;lease payments are substantially higher than say 3 -5 years ago...
  5. decontenting will only save trivial amounts...going to take new, cheaper lineups...ie the baby truck being released. This subject mirrors what I have said all along...you cant just continually raise pricing and rave about ATPs, the higher the price of a vehicle the smaller the market and the bigger the dependence on leasing programs, leaving out some frivolous features and saving maybe $1000 from MSRP wont solve this issue. So, it will come down to what features are deemed necessary in a more basic lineup...Ill be curious how this pans out...
  6. I actually think fords directly involved...PR purposes would be my guess...and I think 10.6 will be improved on somewhat...
  7. thankyou RMC...my point exactly...spurned somewhat by people giving the guy congrats on getting the first unit...pfffffffffffffffft.
  8. I hope not...pure electric is too limiting...an ICE with electric backup makes WAY more viable sense...especially if car has track aspirations....
  9. youre missing the point...question is why this individual got delivery of a car no one has...piqued my curiosity….especially when our is still MONTHS away...…..wouldnt you be curious why some one got preferential treatment..car rocks by the way...listen to that symphony....
  10. sewing more seeds...I don't thionk that car was allocated...and Lasco Ford THANKED the kid for picking their dealership to take delivery of the car from....I somehow have a suspicion this was a car that wasn't part of the Dealers actual allocation and was as such a "courtesy delivery"...definitely more to this story than we know..car was delivered 29th...if so the car would have shown in Lascos inventory....it doesnt...theres the conspiracy theory....
  11. personally I think this kid was somehow targeted ( hes a you Tuber ) by Ford to get this car as quickly as he did. I ran locate of over 3000 dealers in the US...NO ONE...and I mean NO ONE currently has one in inventory....kid also shows up at an awful lot of Ford fuctions aimed specifically at celebrity and Dealer principles....free PR ?...
  12. newsflash...Tesla Cyber bus....350,000 pre-orders...
  13. well, part of the issue is we were getting calls wondering when the car was coming out, and quite a few knew NOTHING about reservations....let alone the process, and at least from our end, there was a tad more interest in the Gt model...but that could just be demographics
  14. yep, they should have gone Elons route....sold out till 2025....
