:nod: :nod:

When I first saw this ad for the truck all I could think of was how many houses, how much acreage etc that would buy.

A coworker just bought a new F-250 diesel in order to pull a bigger trailer for work.
He said everything included it cost him 63k
It'll last probably 4 years and it'll have so many miles it won't be worth much in trade.
So it's costing him 15k a year


I like buying old trucks with good bodies and putting in new motors and transmission and changing out bearing and other stuff IMO its like a new truck for 1/3 the price


Makes me think of our '88 GMC.


Unfortunately, It is a GMC but if its not rusted out better keep it long as possible cheaper to drop new motor and tranny vs buying a new one

I bought for $100.00, from where I used to work, a bunch of years ago. It sat (there) for almost 8 years! They had trouble keeping it running, so they parked it, I bought it, thinking we would use it for parts for the '88 Chevy I had at the time. They were both the 3/4 ton. Husband ended up putting a couple hundred dollars and a few hours into it, and it runs great. We've been using it for a few years now.

That's 6 times what I paid for my first house and it had 2 bathrooms.

There is more money in financing trucks than selling trucks.

Ram and Ford have lost me price wise. And I really don't want another GM diesel dually, but I know where I can buy one cheap. My neighbor trades yearly and offers me his truck every year. Some folks have more money than sense. I see him buying one of these new Ford's for his wife next year.

I bet they'd throw in a free pee jug (even 2) as bonus ;-)

Absolutely! I had a major fiasco/drama with my '15 F250 diesel and traded it in for the exact same truck but a '16 gasser. Dealership actually owed us money on the trade but still said we needed to finance to get all the incentives/bonuses/deductions/BS (whatever you want to call it). So we agreed to finance and the dealer paid it off even before the 1st payment was due.

That's right. It is actually more expensive to pay cash some times.

The prices of trucks have gone up exponentially in the last few years. I don't think they're selling as quickly this year as they have been in the last couple can get $10000-$12000 off the new F150s if you really hunt around.

That still is not a deal in the grand scheme of things. Prices are out of control. I drive by all these dealerships and ask myself who in the world is buying all these vehicles. IMO a nice 4x4 truck v8 half ton should be no more than 18k new if everyone wasn't trying to get rich off of the sale of each vehicle and left all the computer and electronics out.

The makers can;t quit with the electronics crap. It's a "me too" business just like computers used to be. Always have to have something fancier then the other company or you won;t sell diddly.

Hard to get the fuel mileage,,and the power out of less,that their getting out of them to...average Joe can't work on them.. Even the best trained technicians are lost with out the right equipment,to diagnose them...the emission system is so complex now,,you seldom see one smoke like you did 20 + years ago....

In the '70s Detroit produced junk and misread what consumers wanted allowing Japan, first Honda and then Toyota
to get a foothold in the marketplace and eventually dominate it.

I suspect Ford has misjudged what truck buyers are willing to pay and will end up getting bitten in the butt by this
out of touch with reality pricing mistake.
