It's called inflation. Gas was $0.50 per gallon, bread was $0.10 per loaf, etc...

$92k...I presume is full MSRP. I would be shocked if you couldn't knock $20k off that. Also, if you put the two trucks side by side and compared, the modern one would beat out the old one by a wide margin in just about any category you might consider.

I'm sure the old guy back in 1978 who could remember back to the horse and buggy days, didn't understand why $50 for a buckboard and a draft horse wouldn't be good enough.

Those prices go up almost every day. Two years ago when looking for my current truck, I would look at the window stickers online and would see identical trucks with different prices. Comparing them, I would see that the one with the higher VIN (most recently built), some items were more money. Sometimes the base price, sometimes an option or package, or sometimes transport. For the same model year.

I have often thought the OEM’s should offer a version of their vehicles that don’t contain all of the advancements and safety features of the last 40 years.

They probably could sell them at a much reduced price for those that don’t like car prices of today. Of course the consumer would need to sign a waiver stating they won’t sue when they are injured or more likely killed when in an accident.

If you park a 35-40 year vehicle next to a new vehicle the differences are astounding.

I loved my 1978 Chevy Cheyenne 3/4 ton 4x4 400 cid built in Fremont but could have had a Corvette for that price - $6500. 3800 pounds of payload. Carried my TC with ease. Current truck is a “low level” LTZ but I still don't use all the bells.

These are what I have payed roughly for loaded, every option, F-350--C-3500 diesel crew cab trucks.
1985 F-350 $25,000
1993 C-3500 $32,000
1999 F-350 $44,000
2005 F-350 54,000
Today a comparable F-350 is $94,000
My '05 is hardly used and is like new and as I am near 80 don't imagine I'll ever buy another-----I also have a 1965 GTO I bought new for less than $3000.

Around 100K for the Denali model. Same truck, different badge so they can charge you more!

I find the US price vs Canadian price is a big difference. Calculate our dollar difference and our sticker is much higher.
We still pay more though, I think.

And yeah, I like the fancy gizzmobops! Gonna pay that much, may as well get fancy!

At least you didn't have my experience. After walking that 11 miles to school in 4 feet of snow uphill with no shoes, I remembered it was Saturday!
