Default Price check - leftover 2013 F-150

I've had it with my Commander. It left me stranded today 3 hours from home and had to be towed to a dealer. 4th or 5th trip now to the shop since September. I'll be entering the truck market again very soon.

I've seen some new 2013 F-150's in my initial browsing tonight on Autotrader. They're XLT's, crew cab, cloth interior, 4x4 off road, towing packages, 3.55 rear ends, etc. one is a 5.0 and one is an Ecoboost. My boat is only 5k max, conservatively, so both would be plenty enough even with a 3.55 I think. They're advertised at $32,880 for the 5.0 and $33,880 for the Ecoboost.

What would you pay for a pretty basic crew cab 4x4 F-150, 2013 leftover? I'm in SC if that makes a difference to you.

Looked at the echo boost when buying last year. Between rebates and DAV invoice price it was the least expensive truck~~~~~~~~~~~~~ happily spent more on a Dodge 4x4 loaded and Hemi powered. Great torque with the ec but everything fell off from there.

Let's try to keep this one on track fellas. The whole reason I'm particularly asking about the 2013 leftovers is because they're cheaper and comparably priced compared to the '10 and up low mile used trucks. I can't just run out and plop down $40k cash for a new truck. Looking at cheap leftovers out of necessity, not because I'm just being stingy.

Deep tog, how about the actual pricing on that truck and was it a comparable package to the one I mentioned? Also, in regards to the Hemi Ram suggestion, see my comments about my jeep. I have zero interest in DD'ing another Chrysler/Jeep/Dodge product anytime in the near future, unless it's a Cummins that I can't afford.

I don't think true car is good for leftover models. I just priced it on true car and it says a great price is $37,650...seems like that may have been right a year ago when the 2013 model just came out.

Eco boosts are popular. In today's market it is much harder to get big discounts from msrp than it used to be.
I think you would get a better deal with the old iron V-8.
I have brought my last vehicles by emailing local dealers with my desired specifications and inviting bottom line bids. I got a few fair quotes and lots of salesman hustle b.s. I didn't give out my phone or visit the dealership until I got real numbers.
Have you considered Nissan Titans and Chevrolet Silverado's? Both are a little down the food chain from Fords and might be cheaper.

Yes, I have and am willing to consider GM, Tundra, and Titan. Just don't know anything about the Titan. This happened yesterday with the Jeep so I really am just starting browsing last night and those two Fords were actually the cheapest decent trucks I found nearby last night.

Not enough information. Most '13 F-150s I've seen advertised have been from $8-11K off sticker.

Figure out a ballpark invoice price at Edmunds.com then take off $1000 for a leftover and then take off any applicable rebates and that will give you an idea of what the truck should sell for. Then figure out a tradein value for your Jeep and go shopping.

Our local dealer is advertising a leftover 2013 Titan crew cab 4x4 "Pro4) off road for a little over 32k. A regular 4x4 Titan is a little over 30k, both about 9k off of msrp.
The Pro 4 is a little fancier so you are getting a nice radio and some more airbags in addition to the skid plates and bigger tires for off roading.
I don't know much about the Titan, but I have a 2007 Xterra approaching 100k miles which has been reliable.
I think Nissan is also offering 1.9% financing and $500 over 36 months. The short amortization means high payments unless you are putting a lot down.

I bought a leftover 2013 F-150 two weeks ago. It's a fairly loaded King Ranch, MSRP was $53,xxx, invoice was $48,xxx, and I got it for $42,xxx. It's an Ecoboost, 4x4, lots of goodies so I was surprised it was so heavily discounted.

I was also able to negotiate quite a bit on my trade. Strangely enough I traded in a Jeep Grand Cherokee and swore that I will never, ever own another Chrysler product after the issues I dealt with.

I'd say it's a good time to buy a leftover 2013. I'm on my phone so I can't see where you are but if you're anywhere near Tampa I'd go to Brandon Ford. It's where I got mine and they're trying to become the highest volume Ford dealer on the eastern seaboard so they're willing to negotiate quite a bit to move another car.

First time I have heard Tampa referred to as eastern seaboard...

On hold for the rest of the week. Waiting until I get my Jeep back so that I can get some trade values and I won't get my Jeep back until Saturday.

I wanted an F150 when I got my new truck back in May. No one really wanted to budge around here on price though. Guess they weren't interested in selling trucks just throwing on whatever rebate was available at the time and that's it. Ended up sticking with Toyota. Should be able to get a good deal on a Tundra if you can find any 2013's still, especially with the redesigned 2014 on lots now. I paid if memory serves me well $32.5k out the door in May on a Tundra 4x4 double cab with the 5.7L and TRD Off Road package. Sure I could have gotten a little better deal but I was happy with it.

Ideally I wanted an F150 FX4 crew with 6' bed and Ecoboost. But equipped as I liked quickly approached $50k and was well out of my price range. Nice thing (or bad thing if you need a lot of extra goodies) about the Tundra there aren't all that many option boxes to tick so you don't have to worry about going nuts lol.

I'd think $10k off sticker plus tax/tag would be a good deal.
