Hey my fellow GT350 owners, I'm looking to purchase a 2018 Raptor. I'd pay MSRP but have been running into greedy dealers here in SoCal who want $10K to $15K over MSRP and that's not going to happen. I'm willing to go out of state if necessary...any suggestions? So tired of hearing junior sales persons try and justify outrageous ADMs...I'll pay MSRP but no more...

thank you!!

I don't blame you Brad. Almost every Ford dealership I saw has at least one or two Raptors available. From what I understood, these vehicles are not as rare as the GT350s, so I have no ideas why they are marking them up.

Well I’m jealous! Dang I want one of those too. Same here in St Louis area...they’re on lots all over the place and all marked up $10K. Full disclosure though, I have not tried to deal. Maybe they’ll back off around here for serious buyer, IDK.

It is crazy, for instance, Ken Grody Ford in SoCal has 4 oxford white raptors sitting there plus one on order arriving in a couple of months, (plus other colors as well), and they wouldn't come down lower than $10K over...just silly!! Not in any hurry so I'll keep looking around!

Brad, they are losing money every month on interest, it won't be long before they are going to be below sticker.

I just got one,,, they back off when the know you are serious
Well, I finally found one at $1K below sticker. Have to go out of State but lowest I found around here and up North was $5K over MSRP, so I ended up ordering exactly what I want and saved $6K. He has 3 more 2018 allotments left if anyone is interested PM me!

16Snake, please post a pic of your new Raptor, congrats by the way, they are awesome trucks! Now you have the problem of going into the garage and wondering which "Ford Performance" vehicle do I drive today ;) What color and options did you get? I ordered Magnetic with the optional black wheels, 802A equipment pkg, Carbon Fiber interior, twin panel moonroof, tailgate step, Raptor Tech pkg and 2nd row heated seats...

At least you came to your senses and bought the best color... my car’s twin. Already have my truck, came before the Shelby. Not a Raptor...

LOL, it looks sharp in the Magnetic for sure...not the fastest, (or course the Lightning Blue is the fastest), but I'll make do ;)

Update on the 2018 Raptor, It's been since March 8th (original order) and it's still in the "Unscheduled Clean" status...meaning it's not been picked up by the plant to be built yet. However, last Friday, I heard its' been upgraded to a Priority 1 order so it should picked up for build this week. Then <generally> actual build is a couple weeks out so I might be looking at a May 10th - 14th build date. Could be taking delivery near end of May!!

I am one of those few who don't really see too much appeals in the Raptor for the price justification.
Lou, what are we going to do with you...you know you really, really want a new Raptor!!
