#491 of 520 F150 Pricing FLA
Feb 28, 2012 (7:22 pm)
I live in the Tampa area and drive a 2007 F150 Harley. I subscribe to this forum and I'm surprised at how slow it is and the fact there are not many posts. The Honda forum for the Odyssey is great. Anyways, I have been sniffing around and I think 10-12K off MSRP for a 2011 is probably pretty good. If you check autotrader several of the auto dealers advertise as much as 10K off MSRP depending on the configuration. I think these are "real" prices not ads, especially given the incentives out there and rebates, etc. The best way to find out is to start getting quotes and shopping around. Most of the internet departments are pretty solid and up front, from what I have found, they want to move the vehicles. Some are more aggressive than others so ping 6-7 dealers and see what you get back. Then make sure to post back here so we can all benefit.

I have sent out some feelers at 6 dealers in the Sarasota, Tampa, Orlando area. I have gotten back information from 2 at this point. I have found that there is only $500 separating the Ford incentives from model year 11 and 12. I contacted dealers about both 11's and 12's with similar equipment. The dealer that emailed me back on the 2011's offered a price that equated to $800 over invoice less rebates. Not very good considering I got the same discount on a 12 from the other dealer. So I am not seeing at this point why you would buy an 11 when competing dealers are offering 12's at the same discount. I have to believe that Ford must be offering some dealer cash to move these 2011's but I have yet to get solid information on this. As previously stated one should be able to get 10K to 12K off of MSRP on these trucks considering the direction of fuel costs. More information to come.

I completely agree if it's just $800 separating an 11 from a 12, buying a 12 is a no-brainer. I would ask if the 0% financing is available for the 11 including the incentives versus not combinable for the 12's. That works out to some significant savings depending on whether you finance or not. If you build a list of F150's in AutoTrader you can see a few dealers post prices under MSRP, and one dealer off I-4 closer to Lakeland stands out with pricing. Make sure you include them they have lots of 11's left too. Let me know how it goes.

Here is the latest information I have reveived from dealers in the Tampa, Orlando, Sarasota area. It seems that there is only a $500 difference in rebates between 2011's and 2012's. There are better financing options with the 2011's such as 0% for 60 months or 1.9 for 72 months in lieu of a $2K rebate. Most of the repsonses I got back from dealers is they are willing to sell 2011's and 2012's for invoice price. The delima is why buy a 2011? What I am surprised at is Ford has made the 2012's more appealing to the buyer than the 2011 and there are a ton of these left in inventory. That is why I figured there would be some maufacture to dealer cash that would make the 11's more appealing. I figured a person could buy a 2011 for less than invoice price before any rebates. So far I have not been able to get such a deal especially since dealers do have 3% in holdback but many of these units have been sitting on lots for a lomg time and that holdback money has been eaten up. I will update more later.

Great info, keep me posted. I was hoping you would have said the 0% financing was combinable with the 2011 rebates, thus making it a few thousdand different between the 11 and 12 models. I forgot - what type of F150 are you looking at?

The finance piece of this equals to 0% for 60 and 1.9 for 72 plus $2K in rebates. I have been looking at crew cab 4wd with Ecoboost Lariat or FX4. The MSRP is between $46 and $50.

Starting the process of buying a new FX4 screw. One with the Ecoboost eng, luxury pkg, and 20 " wheels has a MSRP right at 46 k. How much off MSRP can one expect at this time of the year ?
#500 of 520 Lariat purchase 06/01/2012

I just bought a 2012 F-150 4x2 Lariat SuperCrew with the Plus package, EcoBoost, Leather Bucket Seats with Console, Chrome Step Bar, Tailgate Step, Body Color Power Folding Heated Mirrors for $32,900. MSRP was $42,815. I think I got a good deal... They were originally quoting me $34,150 and I got several dealerships here in the Houston area that said they couldn't match or beat the price. Anybody care to offer their comments? Agree? Disagree?
