Does anyone think it will be possible to buy a 2015 Ecoboost w/HD package & Max Tow in a trim level that keeps it under $40K? My concern is that initial demand will be high & therefor Ford will only sell the 2015 Ecoboosts with the pricier trim options...
Not sure about the 15s and if you're including trade but when I bought my 12, I think it helped that I researched all the smaller local dealers first and then showed up at the big Ford dealer that we have here with a clean trade, title in hand and the VIN number of the Ford I picked out from a different dealer.
I gave them the number they'd have to beat (and by how much) and it was that easy. My trade was worth 7, they gave me 17 but that also included a 1 month loan through Ford Credit (which I promptly transferred to my CU). As it turned out, all the trucks that this dealer has parked on the hill, they didn't have one with the max tow package so they found one 3 states away, sent a guy out and trailered it back at no charge to me. So I think that number is doable.
If it matters any...still very happy with it. I had some bearings replaced under warranty up front and all four of the original tires have been replaced at my expense due to broken cords (at four different intervals). Discount Tire thinks I got in on a bad batch. I also live a mile down a gravel road.
