Found a new unsold 2017 F250 6.2 Scab 4x4 for sale near me. It's marked down with the typical $3,000 in dealer discount and a couple rebates.
I was thinking way more should be discounted. $8-10K would seem about right. The window sticker has a date on the bottom of 4-13-2017. Which means it's a year old. Not sure if that date is the build date though.

A friend of mine recently bought a F150 with similar date. The dealer sold it to him as a certified used vehicle, at that pricing. My advice is to put all the options into NADA guide as a certified used vehicle, not a new, and see how it comes out. Also get a price on Edmunds.com. It may not depreciate as much as you think since it's a F250.

A lot of times a vehicle like that hasn't sold because it's an odd color for the area, or is missing some option a lot of people want. Check the sticker and package details carefully. My friends had a tow package but did not have the brake controller, which is pretty lame.

10-11K on left over RAMs is fairly common. In Sept 2015 we bought a left over 2015 as the 2016 were on the lots. We got couple buck more that 11K off. Chris

Here's a sure enough early 2017 (11-7-2016) located at The Dalles, OR. Of course, they're not showing any discount, but for a Supercab, 6.2L, it sure is loaded up. Ford seems to hold their cards close on last year discounts. 10-12K on leftover Rams seems to be doable, I'd guess Ford ought to be close.

Have you checked out an XL with STX package etc.? Sure makes a nice tow rig for the money.

Edit: poking around a little, dealer in Weiser, ID advertising $ 10K off a 2017 long bed XLT supercab, 6.2L ~ $36K

I've usually bought my trucks during deep discount periods. Haven't had to deal on a leftover yet. This one is an XL with some options like power, value and decor packages along with the cloth seat. Nothing fancy but doable. Not as much room to bargain as with a Lariat is my guess.

That Weizer Id F250 is spot on. Thanks.

Since I like spending other people's money, is the Supercab a must, and long bed or short bed?

Here's my current favorite (other side of the country), but look for something setup like this one in your area. Is this thing cool or what? [emoticon] ~ $39K advertised.

Offer them something well within your budget and see how they react. If they come back with a high counter keep working them until a price you can both live with is agreed on. If they don't want to barter vote with your feet.

Used retail on my '15 F350 CC is around 43K. Dealer trade is 35-36K. One dealer offered me 32K. Guess dealers need the money more than I do. I'll keep what I got, cuz IF I traded, they would mark it right up to 43K and have steak & shrimp for dinner that night while I'm eating a Happy Meal.

Not sure what the Ford dealer is willing to discount, but a local Kia dealer near me has 3 2017 leftover Kia Hyoki 4 door sedans that are loaded up with everything, and sticker for a tad over 25K. Take your pick of any of the 3, they're all white, for $15.5K. That's a 38% mark down and probably a realistic 25 to 30% from what you could have negotiated that puddle jumper for from sticker last year.

A lot has to do with when the dealer floored the F250. Until it's numbers go into brackets from sitting around on the lot, they'll probably hold their ground at a little over true invoice less any incentives. Once it ends up in the true loss column that's not reversible, and compounds itself monthly, they'll start dropping on what they'll take real quick. It's all about timing. Auto sales are in the crapper right now so I would keep hounding them often if I wanted that leftover.

I am all for getting the best deal possible but your example is totally unrealistic. You can't sell a sedan right now, much less a Kia, and the Ford truck is America's number one selling vehicle. To think about a 38% discount is just silly thinking. I can tell you when the truck was floor planned...the day it was shipped. Every Ford comes with a time of pre-paid floor plan.
