So im happy with my 07 desiel, Im back down at dealer looking at the 2010 desiel, radio add says xlt desiel super cabs, 38000! So they have none, all they have is xt, They do have gasser for 38000 but not the desiel.

So whatever reason, im looking at buying the gas truck they want damn near 636 a month with a 1000 down for 72 months at 6% or 7% interest!! Makes the truck 45500.00 Its just a truck!! I was amazed and speachless, told him no way, ill wait to talk with fleet manager on monday. This price advertised was better than the fleet price, but they had no desiels.

ford 2010 4x4 f 250 LB, power everything. what are you guys paying???Am I the crazy one, ??Last new truck i bought was a 07 dodge half ton, payment was is 350???

really no one out there wanna share there car secrets, we use the dodge for a sprinkler truck, its a crappy truck, im trading that n with a balance forward of 1000. The xt model of this truck is still about 595 a month. What am i mising here, or am i just paranoid that im getting screwed?????? Ive bought damn near 9 trucks from dodge and decided that im done with there warranty one thing and not the other on the same truck, so i switched. already picked up one truck from this dealer, but i cant feel this one out, i usually get a good vibe or bad one.

really all depends on what you put down, I usually put down more than that and don't go over 48 months and usuall pay it off in 36 or less.

Well we usually dont trade in this early, or often but the lil red half ton p/u is struggling with only 40000 miles on her. we bought this new in 2007 as we needed another crew truck and fast, it was a grat deal, we were/are happy until it started slipping out of reverse, jumping when we are towing anything and since we started doing alot more installs its only good for mowing. But at any rate i was looking to upgrade with minimal money down as we were not upside down by no means. So the dealer called back and said they had a single cab 09 f250 4x4 for 21000, at 6%. So we jumped on that. Our payment is lower than the half ton and i really like the fords. So thats about half we were looking at for the 2010 xlt and settled for the xt model. They applied a 10000 discount to the sticker. That made the deal right there, it was the only one on the lot, they found it when they were looking for a xt super cab. At any rate Im more than happy, as we upgraded to work vehicles and reduced our monthly costs for vehicles by nearly 225 a month. Thats 3 solid 3/4 ton 4x4 pickups. I hate buying, and since my brother in law no longer works at dodge, i decided to head over to the ford dealer and im glad we did.

If it's for work only or mostly work and a little personal use, I would go with the xt anyways just because it's cheaper and has less things to break and replace on the inside.

I know the car companies are hurting so you can talk them down quite a bit. My cousin went browsing last year and said he found a f-350 gas crew xlt with a plow and other extras that the dealer had already marked down to like 23,000 but said he would knock another 2 off if they bought it that day.

Advice for the future. The dealer can knock of between 25-50% on some vehicles and still make money so talk them down. I think consumer reports has something to help you with that.

About 2-3 years ago, around the time of the stock market crash...
I made mention that all automobiles (yes, trucks too) would double in price over the next 20 years.
Nobody believed me.

We have 17-18 years to go, for a truck like that, they will want 100 grand.

For me "nused" is the only way to go. Get one that some stupid schmuck traded in with 5,000 - 20,000 miles on it. That way they took a big loss on it and not you plus it is still under warranty. I agree though there is no way I am paying that for a truck.

Man you aren't kidding! new used is what the 07 diesel is and we walked away with a killer deal. Only had like 15000 miles and was used for a mobile detail company. Liking the diesel we looked and that was it. XT all the way for work trucks, we found the 09 truck priced right for what we need. But i don't think i can afford a new truck at this rate. My 2004 dodge Gasser was 28000 new and i thought i was paying to much then! The sticker on a 2010 diesel f250 lariat loaded is 60 plus!! seriously who uses a short bed f 250 leather, 4x4 with switches, diesel for work? And i mean really use it for work. Not many. The sticker on the xt diesels 4x4 was 40 plus, maybe 38 for the short box. I dont understand how having a 700 800 car payment is helping anyone make money. I know some people use there trucks for they are made for but not many. I dont know how many guys in suits, or moms i see driving these tanks, not judging just confused. Well as i see it i will not purchasing a truck for awhile and Like topsites says they will probably be at 100 g by then. I just dont see how they can cost so much. they are pricing these things out of our market as i see it. Well for the smaller 2and 3 crew companies anyway.......in a way im glad its universal and not local, happy spring everyone and make that money , especially id u are buying a work/pleasure truck.:hammerhead:

i was quoted 53.5k for a 2010 crew cab xlt diesel chassis f550, and 56,900 for a 2011 that i cant get yet apparently in the same deal.. the pickup trucks that are 59k sticker for a shortie bed f350 cc is nuts. then again, bimmers that break down after 80k miles 3 years later are 59k new too and i wouldnt pay 20k.

You mean XL..That doesnt sound like a bad deal at all. V8 or V10?

Paid 39990 for my 06 lariat fx4 6.0 powerstroke in 06 0% interest 0 down. Why anyone pays interest on a new vehicle is beyond me. Payment was under 600 traded it in for the wifes mustang now. I got over 30k for it wit 60k miles. I do happen to get z-plan the truck was listed over 50k.

Don't complain.

Canadian diesel F350 crew cab with some options for 2011, will run you well over $70K with tax, and no, that's not the highest trim level either.

I am a ford man. I love them and own 4. I also like the diesels. I have had 7.3 in the past and now 6.0's. I know a lot of people had trouble with the early 6.0 diesel. I have heard from numerous people including a good friend of mine who is a ford guy and diesel mechanic that the new ford diesels are grenades. No personal experience other than friends who have bought them. Blown engine at 4k miles for one of them. He b*tched up and down and they gave him a new truck. Got a new one and around 10k lost a tranny. He has had a bunch of other problems. He is not allowed inside two local ford dealers because he has blown up at the dealers. They are supposed to be coming out with a new diesel next year. In any case Ford trucks are very expensive I was looking myself. I dont want to buy gas and I'm not sure I want to buy an 07. This is more of a play truck for myself...I will use it for plowing but no other work. I am not sure how to get a new truck under $40k with some options but I would be open to suggestions

Take a look at medium duty trucks, For some reason, they are much cheaper than a full sized pickup in the 2500 or 3500 version?? This doesnt make a bit of sense, you can get a heavier truck that can haul alot more weight, for much less money? I too have truck shopped last year and was equally as shocked at the prices!! They are only putting themselves out of business by asking crazy amounts for their trucks, and if the one guy is right, if they get up to $100K, they will not sell a single truck! Hell, you can almost buy a regular semi truck for the price of some of these full size pick up trucks!!! Like Ive said before, IT IS A FREAKING TRUCK, not a Ferrari or a luxury car for Gods sake, the rear of the vehicle is only a steel bed!! Maybe they are trying to go bankrupt? it sure seems like it!

we hit a couple dealers the other day cause we are buying a new truck for my dad.

went to check the chevy out first. bunch of 2500hd reg cab long beds, no power windows etc.. they wanted from 33-36K. step into a diesel cloth int. crew cab short bed and they jump to over 46K+. the leather int. in that same config was 55-61K

stopped at my ford dealer, they found 2 f350 srw's reg cab long bed 4x4 diesels. xl package with vinyl floors, cloth seats, power windows locks, power xtend/heated mirrors with cd etc... for 43K. Xplan takes that to about 40K then they offer either 0% for 60mos, or $1000 off and 1.9% or $6000 off.

we have good credit so we can get a loan for 3-3.5% and we'd take the 6000 off. so that brings the truck to 34K. not to bad i dont think. but i do agree trucks are getting way to expensive.

oh ya and i test drove a 2011 f550 6.7Lpsd, man that thing was sweet! very smooth power with the new 6 speed, feels like your in a semi, the way they shift and keep you in the power. very quiet. it was an xl with 165" wb 4x2 reg cab. goin for about 44K.

Just adding leather to a Chevy caused it to jump $9K?!! I cant believe they wanted over $30K for a base model 2500, without any power options either!!! That is nuts! No wonder why the whole automotive market is in the crapper!

dont get me wrong, i like chevy's too, but around here for the price of the two trucks, i think you get more truck for the same money going with a ford. and especially since dealer are very cautious about working on a chevy diesel in anything but a reg cab if you have a plow on it.

You guys should always buy the latest and greatest, what's a few extra thousand, 40, 50, 60, who cares,
look at the least you have what nobody else can afford and that means you must be somebody!!!

Shhhh, I paid $4,000 for my '95 D-2500 SLT Laramie, fully loaded and that's after everything got fixed but don't tell them.

I forgot to mention that 150k miles $15 is an '08. Now he has same with 117k miles for $17850. Trucks look like new. Local Ford lot has first 2011 white over gold king ranch trailer pack nav unit and sun roof. And only $64700, is single wheel F350 crew cab diesel comes with auto trans $7800+, base truck is 49,400. I read an article last week saying that test drive yielded mpg's in mid 20's. If the 6.7 works out for them I'll take a 3 year old with 150k on it for about $17 in 2014.:cool2::cool2:

We have 17-18 years to go, for a truck like that, they will want 100 grand.

why would no one believe you, they have doubled (or more) in the past 20 years? That's not exactly a stunning prediction. So has milk, gas, houses, ect...

If things keep going the way they are now, the big 3 wont be around to charge $100K for a truck!!! I think prices will come down, they know not many people have that kind of money to spend on a truck nowadays, so they will stock more bare bones models, and they will probably have to lower their prices just to sell them!
