I bought a 2007 Harley Davidson in December with the saleen package, discounted it about 7K off MSRP and they RARELY move off those vehicles. I'd look at invoice for your truck as the starting point, then subtract the rebates or choose the financing option. Based on what I remember the invoice of that truck is likely lower than 30K, given a 33K MSRP. I'd suggest invoice is likely about 28K. Nobody's buying trucks right now and Ford is hurting, plus the 2009's come out in 6 months with a redesign of the F150. I guess what I'm saying is you can get a better deal, at least invoice minus the rebates or taking the 0% APR. You can probably get better than that if you are willing to walk away/shop around.

We're being offered a new 2007 4x4 F150 XLT supercrew for $23,500. The sticker is $32,153. I know it's a lot off the sticker, but these trucks obviously aren't moving. Is this the best deal we can get?

The only way to know a "good deal" is to shop around, check prices, and be willing to make a deal. The elusive "best deal" is all up to the customer and their requirements. If you are basing your "best deal" solely on price, then shopping based only on price is your best bet. Shoot a bunch of e-mails out, call the internet managers, and tell them you will buy the truck today at what you consider to be the "best price". I think all the trucks are priced pretty well right now, that's why I chose to buy one in December of 07. 9K off sticker is pretty good considering the sticker is only 32, that's about 30% off. If you want to get lower, show up with your checkbook and offer them 1500 off that price. You'd be surprised what happens when you pull out your wallet, prices can sometimes go down even further.

The rebates are posted all over the net, including on this site. I signed up for consumer reports car service and that was pretty decent. It's basically the same information you can get from Edmunds plus they give you the dealer holdback (I could not find dealer holdback on Edmunds site). The 2009 F150's come out soon, so they are already dealing on 2008's, lots of rebates and incentives there. If you have a 2007 you like you should be able to get it for 2-3K less than the 08, otherwise your better off going with an 08.

I special ordered my F250 4x4 with the 6.4 liter deisel, camper package, towing mirrors,tilt,cruise and air conditioning nothing else. The msrp on the sticker said $34,935.00. I drove away with it for $30,022.00. 2.9% APR for 60 months. I wander how much they still made off of me. I feel like I got a pretty good deal though. What do you guys think?

We got a great deal on our F150 with discount package, rebates and x-plan at end of March:
-2000 SXT Discount
21683 Z-Plan Price
-1000 FMCC rebate
-500 Retiree Bonus rebate
-500 Because I asked what else since was end of month
$650.50 3.25% Sales tax, plus tax, title and tags in OK.
Ford jams you on the interest rate if you go with them. I've got 800 FICO and still got socked with 8.99% rate for 60 mo. I refied with my credit union last week for 4% for 60 months. Come out ahead taking that rebate though....They're stupid to think people won't refi.....
Great truck for the money.

where does Ford get off charging 8.99% interest in today's market?
also, your deal really shows just how rediculous MSRP and Ford pricing in general is in the real world. It's like the dealer saying jump through this hoop, duck and crawl over there and then slide down that tube and swim back and jump over a fence to see what price you get -
I had to do some of the same stuff when I bought mine - $500 of the deal was predicated that I had a contractors license which made me scramble for a bogus piece of paper to finish the deal.
I mean $26,000 for a regular cab F-150? Who set that as an MSRP?
