$100,000 ford truck

Just saw this today. Interesting to see their target demographic.

"a typical target customer is someone who tows a $250,000 horse trailer with million-dollar horses on board, or a six-figure boat, and is looking for a truck to match."

Heck of a lot more use for a truck than a boat. Both too high priced and ridiculous, but the boat more so.

So I wonder how much prices of the plebeian XLT and Lariat versions are going to be affected? Seems like new trucks are already priced beyond reason, this will just exacerbate that.

You could already spec a platinum 450 to almost 90k. Guarantee this won’t change anything. Just like you can get a 70k dollar F150 limited.

Putting aside price for a moment, this is one spectacular looking truck.
