MY son in law has a 2022 F250 Lariat in production as I type this. The MSRP is $78,230.00.. SELLING price is $69,750.00.. THESE trucks have gotten WAY expensive ! !


Used vehicles are real expensive now too.

It is all relative.


True that !

He is getting $30k trade for a truck he purchased in 2017 for $34k... my brother in law purchased his 2016 F250 in 2016 for 33k... getting 30k trade also on his new F350..

August of 2005 I bought my F150 4x4 Lariat with every option available and paid $36k, financed by Ford's no interest loan. Today it has 77,500 miles. Drove to South Central Oregon a few weeks ago and it averaged 18.5 MPG; around town 13.5 MPG.

When towing TT, it blesses me with 9-10 MPG, even more if I didn't drive 60-65 MPH. My brother in law just paid $75k for his new "used" F250. WTF I say....

I'm not trying to justify your bro. in laws purchase $75K is a lot for a F250.
But there is really no comprison betwen a 2020 F250 and a 2005 F-150.
Your talking apples and oranges and 16 years of technology.


My point is a used F250 (also decked out with all the options) is selling for twice what I paid for my F150, 16 years ago. You are right, "no comprison betwen" the two.

Excellent!

I gave about $31,000 in 2001 with most every option but the rear seat entertainment and no sunroof. No zero % back before 9-11.
205,000 miles now getting 8 towing and maybe 14 around town.
Everything works great except the CD player.
Probably my last truck with todays prices.


Ditto here, probably my last F150 purchase as well. I'm just north of 65 and plan to celebrate my centennial b-day with my friends. LOL, got all the options including butt warmers, sunroof, audiophile extras (including jumbo woofer under back seat), 18" wheels, rock guard....).

In 2006, I bought a used 2005 Ford F350 Dually V10 from a Ford dealer. It had a little over 20,000 miles. It came with a factory extended 4 year, 75,000 mile warranty, which gave me 4 years of warranty to almost 100,000 miles.

It cost $20,000 out the door, including tax and license.

20 years later, it has only been at Ford once for a repair to check on an ABS light which they fixed under warranty (loose connector). It now has 146,000 and everything works fine. Even the radio, heater and AC work.

In 2019, I ordered and bought a Ram 3500 Dually HO and it cost much more than the Ford, and at the time I didn't care. Since then, It had three recalls, plus was in the shop numerous times for radio, AC, Heater, clunks, and transmission issues, etc.

Ram couldn't fix the radio, heater, AC or clunks even though TSBs exist.

Even though the title of the thread is "The price of new trucks is beyond comprehension! ", in my opinion, "The incompetence of Ram and their dealerships s beyond comprehension."


The dodge fan boys hate the dodge/ram dealerships. Now that I have owned a Mexican Fiat Oui-Oui (La fiat wee-wee), I understand why.
The only thing more incompetent than Ram is Bye-don and his supporters.

And there’s only 5% inflation today l. A 1964 half dollar coin is worth more than $10 today… in 57 years a dollar is now worth 5 cents compared to what it would buy in 1964. A millionaire used to be a rich person but today you have to be a multi, multi millionaire.


This post is my opinion (free advice). It is not intended to influence anyone's judgment nor do I advocate anyone do what I propose.

It would be interesting to know how many weeks income it takes of, say a school teacher, to equal the cost of a 4x4 crew cab pick up now vs in 2000. Regardless for many people the older they get the wealthier they get and the easier it is to purchase a vehicle. My first vehicle nearly emptied my piggy bank.

Ff you don't consider price there is still no comparison betwen those 2 trucks.
Yes they are both Ford pick ups but that is where the comparison ends.
