Default Best prices on new F-250's???

I've recently been looking for a new F-250 Lariat, 4x4, crew and was a bit disappointed in the pricing from my local dealer. This was made worse when considering my past purchase history from these guys which is usually 2-3 vehicles per year for both personal an business use. This made me curious if there might be a better option out there for new Ford trucks? Are there any large volume Ford dealers that that are selling this particular truck at large discounts? I would consider anything within 750 miles of the South GA/North FL area
Thanks!

I've bought a few ford trucks lately.

Best I've found is Brandon Ford in Tampa, Athens Ford in Athens, GA or Bozard Ford in St. Augustine.

Not sure if it helps but I got a baltimore dealer down to 51,000 even for a 2016 leftover f250 4x4 lariat crew cab, 6.7 diesel, 20" wheels, sun roof, navigation, short bed. This was two weeks ago. Good luck.

I just ordered mine. Every option MSRP $79,590 I got $8000 off MSRP at my local dealer. I was pretty excited with that being that they could probably sell them close to sticker price right now with the current demand.

What was the sticker ? Years back, I got an F-250 which was a year leftover, for $25,000.00 with a sticker price of $38,000.00. I was not expecting to buy a truck, because I already had a nice one. Salesman came on me hard, and I decided to play harder. Told him I would pay $25,000.00 and not a penny more. Cash deal. After 3 hours of jerking around with the standard manager meeting and a call to the president of the United states, We did my offer. I did pay the tax and registration fee.
My ex-wife was the dealer general manager for a Mercedes dealership. She schooled me well. One most important item is that you Must come in prepared. You Must play hard ball. The sales person makes more money from the financing he sells you than he does from the commission on the car. Have your own financing before purchasing a car. Cash buyer will rule every time. Do not come in unprepared, or you will be prey, and not the predator.
Oh yeah, I got them to throw in a bed liner and pin stripe the F-250 for my $25,000.00
Don't play softball in a hardball game. Just my opinion of course.

Should be pretty easy to buy an in stock F250 for invoice =/- a few hundred bucks and minus all rebates at pretty much any dealer. In fact I'll sell you any Ford vehicle that I have in stock except shelby's or Raptors for invoice minus rebates. And furthermore I could find you plenty of dealers near me that would do similar or same.

Left over vehicles from last model year are often discounted more than I described above.

I try not to take offense when people paint dealers with a broad brush but it is sometimes difficult. That said, many good ethical customers would be offended if we dealers painted all customers with a wide brush. Yes, there are bad actors on both sides.

I'll do what I stated above and give you great service as well!

The trouble with "in stock" F250's is that there are relatively few on dealers lot for sale. They're either too stripped (for commercial use) or Platinum models with too many options running the price up.

Ford allots these trucks to the dealers that are willing to order a bunch of slower moving merchandise--like Ford Focus'. Scratch the manufacturer's back, and they'll send more F250's.

Trucks is what pays the bill, and most Ford dealers are not willing to really cut the prices on "light diesels."

When I bought my F250 from Akins Ford in Winder, GA (out by Athens), they had 750 diesel pickups on the lot. They had'em with virtually every body made in stock too. There are many states that didn't have that many F250's on all the dealers' lots. Call'em and ask for Mr. Cardiges in the internet sales dept. I know his brother, Stan who used to work at Akins.

If you paid 70 grand I'm not sure that's a good deal. That's pretty high by whats seen on here.

Here in Dallas TX or even at home in MS I can walk into any dealership an the Lariat model F250's will be lined up and down the aisles...... I was truck shopping few weeks prior and what's going on is Ford doesn't have very much rebates right now on the 2017's. After the first quarter more rebates should start to show up. But as the guy above said, ask for invoice then minus any rebates and would be the price you would want to start negotiating at if not lower. With that being said I was looking for a 17 2500HD Denali, now that was hard to find at a bargain!

It also helps if you talk to the new car sales manager or internet sales managers only as they typically don't work off commission. And if a truck has been sitting for 3 months they will really want to start moving them. At the end of every month they want to get them out ASAP as well. PM me if you have any other questions.

If you're looking for a '17, probably 10-12% off of sticker, for a '16 you should expect about $12-15,000 off of sticker for a loaded truck.

No one wants to get bent over on the price of anything but seriously come on guys do some of you treat every purchase in life like a vehicle? Sure they are big ticket items compared to everyday things but you don't think twice when you buy something for the boat with a 175% mark up. New car buying isn't rocket science these days. It's actually more transparent than any other purchase you will probably, literally what other business has their net cost posted everywhere for people who do 10 minutes of research to see?

Check out Kelly Ford in Beverly Ma. They have a real good inventory and great prices!

I priced out a few..a well optioned extended cab 250 XLT....Just a bit north of 40K

Truth be told, I just can't bring myself to drive a Ford. Very nice truck, but I'm a GM guy!
