Not telling you how to buy it but I buy alot of trucks, You shoulf be able to buy it a $1000.00 below invoice plus the bebates should be some where around 10K below sticker price unless they are trying to phuck you.
It's a left over 11, $10,000 off MSRP or walk away! He's going to take a bigger hit then that the second he drives it off the lot.Not telling you how to buy it but I buy alot of trucks, You shoulf be able to buy it a $1000.00 below invoice plus the bebates should be some where around 10K below sticker price unless they are trying to phuck you.
I wonder why yours gets so good mileage and I hear others that hate them because of the mileage? Is it the 3.23 rear gear?I don't know about buying a left over 2011, but I just took delivery of a new 2012 F-250 super duty with 6.7. Took it on my first trip to Delaware 628 mile trip and got 21.7 mph going and got 21.2 mph coming back. The truck is a four door long box with two wheel drive and a 3.23 rear gear. With 1650 miles on it so far I'm loving it.
That's a first!You should be able to get that a bit better than you mentioned.
I bought my 11 F350 Lariat in october of last year, Sticker was 56k.
I bought it for Invoice minus the then current rebate (6500), so my purchase was 46k. I actually picked it up as "the dealer trade" and brought my dealer back the check for holdback, about $485.
Ford also has rebate plans for trucks like yours that are growing roots. There is typically another 1k for trucks that had a birthday or been in inventory for more than a year. That truck may have been there for 2 years, as they released the 11's in mid 10.
Be hard on that deal, they want to be rid of that truck way more than you want to own it.
My truck with 3:73 4x4 4 door dually, gets 17 empty @ 75-80mph, milage does go up a bit when you slow to 65. My combined average around town and highway are around 14.6.
Let me add, I did own an 08 Chevy duramax. I gotta say the Chevy was a nicer truck, quite a bit more solid feeling, the 6.7 is waaaayyyyy quieter, the ford truck is a little more flimsy....
I'm not real sure. I wasn't towing anything on this trip and I have a cover on the bed and never ran over 70 mph so I'm thinking the gear has some thing to do with it and remember it is a single rear wheel two wheel drive. It was running some where around 1600-1650 rpm at 70 mph. I can't wait to hook up the trailer to see what happens.I wonder why yours gets so good mileage and I hear others that hate them because of the mileage? Is it the 3.23 rear gear?
thats what I was thinking too :smt017, I have own several GM's over the years, and everyone after a couple years old ,would be a rattle trap.That's a first!
