$92k for a pickup truck?! Wow. I realize that's Canadian, and is a truck with tons of bells and whistles, including the extremely expensive diesel option, but...Wow.

My 36' Class A Motorhome with full body paint and numerous other options (see signature), bought brand new in 2012, did not cost that much!

If pickups are that expensive and will only get worse.....Welllll, makes me that much happier that we'll most likely never need to own one again.

What a couple guys alluded to, but not specifically, is aside from inflation, you’re buying twice the vehicle now compared to say, the 80s.
Power capability, technology, comfort, features etc etc.
too many “want it all, now” people. Older folks too.
Want to bitsch about the price of your new LTZ duramax dually crew cab?
Compare it to a stripped down gasser new work truck for starters and then add how much more capable, powerful and comfortable that is even compared to the top of the line 80s rig and then do the math instead of thinking luxuries should be free.
Helll, we already get huge discounts on luxuries compared to previous years and it’s all relative.

At 50 years old, I still have never bought a new car. I always buy 3-4 years old. I just can’t comprehend paying all that money and losing 50% in the first couple years!

You don't loose that much with diesels. The MSRP on my truck was $64k back in 2014 and was its trade in value was $50k in 2016 with 30k miles in it which is what I actually paid for it.

^^^^ What kind of numbers would you be looking at now if you were to trade in your truck for a 2022? (You’re probably hoping/waiting for Ram to put a ZF 8 speed behind the Cummins?) Do you still have the ‘14 or did you trade it for a ‘16?

I bought a brand new 78 Chevy half ton right after graduation from college. 2 years later my heel went through the floor board. Rust. Michigan winters killed it in 4 years. Doors tailgate a mess.
Big 3 deserved global competition. Asia European vehicles now have very high brand loyalty that's been passed down to younger generations. The RV industry is today's US dominated monopoly with a big middle finger to the customer. I hope ATC never sells out to Thor or Winnebago. It's built to stand the test of time.

Respect is earned.

Nope, still have the 14 and it will be the truck my son drives in the coming years when he is old enough. Don't plan on getting rid of it anytime soon. Only looked at the trade in value in 2016 to compare values for the gaser versus diesel spreadsheet I had.

If anything I will just get a new truck when I hand it down in about 4 years. After all, it has been paid off since 2018 and the $900 payments I used to pay have been going to growing some investments since then.

And Shiner probably changes his oil and air filters and stuff, so his truck should last a long time! LOL

My 94 F-150 XL reg cab I-6 manual cost me about 1000 hrs of pay. My 2020 F250 7.3 FX4 STX crew cab with far more features than a Lariat had in 94, cost me about 1400 hrs of pay a year ago. Worth every penny. Lovin’ every mile.
