#411 of 432 2013 Ford Escape Purchase Question
Nov 04, 2012 (3:44 pm)
Hi all, I am seeking to purchase a 2013 Ford Escape S model. I got a price from one dealer: $22500 OTD (CA tax) and could not get more cut. It's a white one and with SYNC package. Any comments on this price?

#413 of 432 Future incentives
Dec 17, 2012 (6:34 am)
We are considering a '13 Titanium, but are wondering if this is the best time to buy? Will the incentives be better in January or February? We are fortunate that we do not HAVE to buy right now, so we're trying to time it out for better incentives if they'll be coming along.
I haven't been able to find any info on typical January/February incentives.

Being in the car business over 20 years let me give you my 2 cents. If the dealership near you is hurting and needs to make it's 2012 numbers, NOW is the best time. December 31st at noon would be the best time. Its slow, the last day of the year and month. Now FORD doesnt have to do much because it is the new model, etc, but if they advertise 0% interest, or those things, its not going to get better than that. Waiting until Jan/Feb may make it worse, because they dont "have to" do anything really. The next best timeframe in my mind would be June/July when the 2014's are around the corner and they need to dump the 13's.

Hi JohnnyVegas. thx for the insight. We are A/Z Plan with Ford, so the purchase price isn't a variable, but the incentives and trade values are.
I appreciate your response and it will help us make a decision.

Paid about $12 over invoice and got 2500 in rebates on top of that. Silver exterior with full leather seats navigation and power panoramic roof. Out the door my 2013 Escape Titanium was 13% under msrp... Not sure how good that was.
The sales guy told me he was 2 cars away from hitting his year end bonus so he was very motivated to sell the car. I got lucky there. I bought the car on December 27th so I got all the year end incentives.
