Yesterday started out at around 8:30 AM and ended at 7 PM, no lunch, just going from dealer to dealer. And yes I have been online for weeks doing research. But nothing replaces actually seeing the truck. I did see, Ford, f150, f250, Both fuels, I looked at the 2013, 2014 Chevys, HD and 1500, GMC, even a hybrid GMC, and Dodge, all of them. The Cadillac died very fast thanks to Rabbit, first comment of the day. I know he would like that. I literally was living and doing what the comments suggested. The comment regarding gear ratio was a mind blower and game changer. But, as we all know, its a game. Options, packages, wheels, inventory, unsold 2013’s vs 2014’s? Leases, Track commercial lease? Finance, Cash? So..
What have we decided on? Ford! The f150, ecoboost V6 with tow package. Has more horse power than the V8 and gets around 21 MPG.. Ya right.. But it is the latest thing. I won’t be towing anything more than 7,000 lbs, and the tow capacity is 11,000 lbs, and I tow about 20% of the time I use the truck. Lots of miles to stories.. No Dodge, Chevy, I did like GMC.. alot.. Yea, same truck, but …ahh hell, maybe it was the salesman.. So, once Ford was picked, around 3 pm yesterday, the drill down.. Which one? Do I really need air conditioned seats? NO.. What is the real discount? What factory rebates do i qualify for.. So I have today to search more dealers. I have one dealer that I like, one vehicle that I like, but there is about a 5,000 difference in price.. Today, I dig, find out where the real numbers are.. And ya never know, my A.D.D could kick in and I will find a nice chevy? AHHHHHH. In the mean time, please enjoy clicking on anything, and you will get a different header each time.
