Went to the dealer the other day
I have a 2013 FX4 SuperCrew with EVERY option you can get. It has a EcoBoost in it..... Shortly after buying it last Sept I was on the FORD site a "built" a Raptor and realized that for not a whole lot more I could have.... should have bought a Raptor. The thought has been haunting me ever since.
There is absolutely nothing wrong with the truck I have. ITS AWSOME. Currently it only has 5000 miles on it and it seems like the mileage gets better and better... which really isnt that super important to me. My point is I have no complaints whatsoever about my FX4 BUT EVERYTIME I see or even think about a Raptor I feel like I messed up. The Raptor is just simply... more me.
All that aside.. Went to a dealer and he shot me a price of 60K without asking anything other than if I wanted a Crew again..and he told me that MOST dealers are marking up the Raptor 10K so I would be looking in the neighborhood of $70K and to add insult to injury he told me IF I wanted to trade my FX4 in he would give me $29K for it! Its got 5000 miles on it! I said it stickered for 50 so I'm sure you would love to give me 29. Run it thru the washbay put it on the lot and short sale it for 38 or 39 within a week... sounds like a sweet deal on his end. I wouldn't dream of trading it in... I didn't even suggest it but his eyes got big as apples at the thought of it.
Sorry.... just venting................ Im done... I messed up. I shoulda bought a Raptor to begin with uhhhhhhg! lol

Nice rant. I am sure you have a great FX4. I wouldnt look back. If you really want a Raptor though, try another dealer that will give you a fair trade price, or sell it on you own.

I doubt I'll do anything at this point with no Raptor for 2015 and if I did I would sell my truck myself. I just couldn't believe this cat had the wavo's to tell me he was going to mark it up 10k right out of the gate... lol I feel bad I didn't buy a Raptor to begin with... Im not an idiot lol :)

Where are you at? I've heard of these markups in California and a few other places. I ordered a Raptor back in November for $50 over invoice plus $249 doc fee, that's it. But I am still waiting on it, hope to have it this month finally. I am trading in my 2011 King Ranch with 28k miles and getting $30,700 for it.

Raptors on the lot typically demand MSRP and no rebates, you have to order to get a better deal, and wait a long time. There are some dealers in Texas that will sell them for $3k off but that is about the best I could find.

If you want more info, shoot me a PM.

Local dealer has a 2013 left go figure. If you want info let me know.

This dealer said $60K and said add $10K over to order it (Central Wisconsin)

Thats crazy on an order, find a different dealer as that place is clearly a bunch of douche bags.

Best bet is to look for a used Raptor. I saw a couple local to me last year but resisted the urge to look. I opted for a more practical for me Ecobeast this year. You could easily build a Raptor eater for that $40k price differential.
