2022 Truck pricing up a lot?

I have been going to the Ford site and building my F-450 XLT for almost a year now. Just went on this morning and the price has gone way up. A 2021 priced about 2 months ago with what I wanted was $64k. Same 2022 truck priced today is $77k. Both are MSRP. Ah geesh.

It's called hyper-inflation, and it isn't going to end anytime soon.

Makes it a lot harder to convince my wife I need a new truck. She keeps bringing logic and good sense into the argument. "What's wrong with the truck you have?" Poppycock.

I "bit" the bullet on my new 2022 F150 due in next week. Prices should not be going down.

I managed to get only $1500 off MSRP on this special order.

If you have a trade in.........that will help your cause as they are bringing pretty good prices.

Good Luck!

About two months ago we took our DD to a Ford dealer (because her old Durango went south finally) and she was interested in the new Bronco's. Full disclosure - we did not represent her. She beat up the salesman and the F and I guy by herself and got the deal she wanted with no trade and plenty down. But that is another 50 or 100 words.

What I wanted to say is while we were outside waiting we overheard a salesman respond to a tire kicker what was the price (msrp) of a deep black 2022 F-350 SRW 4x4 with apparently every extra ? and he replied " $82,000.00 ".

"Yikes"

Bought my 2015 F350 in 2017 it’s now worth $4000 more than I paid for it then According to KBB and NADA.
Factoring in covid at our factories and at the computer chip factories in Taiwan there’s slim pickings. I did see that intel wants to spend billions on a chip factory in Ohio. We need to bring back more especially items used by our military, but more in general for our citizens, outsourcing our jobs just didn’t work out as well as we thought. One thing I have noticed here is the big three make the best tow vehicles or at least the most used.

I know of two guys recently that were in the market for new trucks. When they hit the dealership they got severe cases of sticker shock. Both of them opted for the "white plain jane" work trucks. While they were in the market for decked-out 1500's or 2500's, they both chose 3500 work trucks. Manual windows and door locks, vinyl/polyester seats, rubber floor matting and steel wheels, but $20K cheaper out the door. Both trucks were diesels, though.

The REAL PRICE has gone up a lot more than the sticker price; meaning discounting is hard to come by.

Got my 22 Ram 2500 6.4 ever so slightly below sticker. However, I got awesome trade in value due to the obvious increase in used/new values. Didn’t feel so bad about paying so close to sticker because I came out so good on the other end. It’s a mess and I’m scared to see where it’s going.

Our 2019 Ram Laramie is worth more than we paid for it. I would jump on an upgrade to a 2500.

But a 2500 won't fit in the garage. Bummer.
I'm not normally that anal ��. But hate to leave a new truck outside.

Maybe jack the (detached) garage off the slab and set a course of concrete blocks under it?

Usually the best time to convince them is on a Caribbean Cruise in February :-)

I bought my 2017 F-250 this past summer. I paid for it, used, about what the original owner had paid for it new. Even at that time the prices for new trucks was shocking. My spouse was also hesitant, but I convinced him that he could use it for hauling wood (he turns wood as a hobby). Plus I had already bought the trailer, and we couldn't have hauled the trailer with my Civic or his Prius LOL.

I'm so glad I bought it then. I don't see any ends to prices going up. Even if supply-side issues are fixed, what incentive is there for manufacturers to drop prices? At best they will have some "sales" that will drop prices but not even back to where they were last year. JMO.

I keep hearing about thousands of trucks (and cars) sitting in lots waiting for chips to be installed so they can be sold. I wonder what will happen when they get those chips. Could be there will be a whole lot of leftover 2021 vehicles hitting the dealerships with reasonable prices on them. I don’t think the manufacturers can afford to just send these vehicles to scrap, they will want to get some money out of them if they can.

That's why I always take a tape measure with me when house hunting. If the truck doesn't fit, it's off the list. I passed on several houses my wife loved, but had a very small garage.

This house came first. At that time we had an Avalanche. The 2019 Ram 1500 fit fine. A 2500 will not.

But the "War Department" wants to go house hunting again. The deal is:

She gets a new house.
I get a new truck.

I bought my 2021 in April thought I got great deal paid a little less than sticker but they gave me almost what I paid for my 2018. The guy that bought the 2018 started signing his paperwork before me if I had known I would’ve stalled and forced a better deal.
