I know they throw deals out at the end of each quarter. But it depends on the dealer also, so get two to compete against one another to see who offers a better deal. My brother just bought a 2017 F250 xlt it was Cheaper than a 2017 F150 xlt with all the incentives. By the way the xlt comes with everything you need and more. You can always add more later for a lot cheeper than OEM.

I purchased a 2016 F250 last year. I got xplan pricing from one dealer, and I used other dealers to quote the same truck. Neither dealer had the truck I wanted in their inventory. It was 70 miles away at another dealer. Xplan did not deliver the lowest price. Use xplan as a base, but you can probably work to get a better deal. When I purchased my 2016, production had stopped on the 2016 and the factory was tooling up for the 2017.

XPLAN plus incentives got me roughly -10k give or take...plus very fair trade in price.....very few trucks in the 100 mile area period. This was the only one with trim levels and options I wanted in a desirable color....really hard to find.

There's a good thread on this but you'll probably want to start around page 300 to see how the math is calculated. I'm a nerd and have a spreadsheet. This applies more to f150s but math is the same for others. And the next round of ford incentives hit Oct 2. I'm just wondering if they increase them at all now that Houston area will have a great need for trucks.

Without reading 500 pages of the f150 forum are you saying it might be better to hold out 30 more days?

I'm holding off to see what they do but it just depends on how rare the truck you want is in your area. The 17's are selling down so if you're looking for some specific options and nothing else will do, you may have to go ahead and pull the trigger. I'm open at this point to an XLT or Lariat so I'm going to wait it out. If nothing else I will drive my current car for another 6 months to year. They haven't offered me anything enticing enough to buy a 1 year old vehicle considering the 18's already have $1500 off for an XLT.

And that forum is just to arm yourself before you negotiate so as to know how low a dealer can go. Basically you should be able to get truck at invoice less any rebates and possibly less any dealer hold backs depending on your area and how high of volume that dealer is. I think the range is anywhere around 10-15% off MSRP is what you should pay but dealers are very slick in how they calculate MSRP now so you have to be careful. Also don't allow them to throw any crazy doc fees on top.

Thanks for posting. Good math starts on page 306.

October-December is usually best time to buy in NE - before snow flies dealers all try and clear out inventory and make room for all the new models coming in. F250+ dont really get the types of incentives typically seen on 150s. With all the auto metrics pointing down (inventories up, sales down, used prices falling), its a great time to buy a used one if you can find a decent example.
