the price of used trucks knocks me out even more than the price of new trucks. Just saw a 2017 Ford 3/4 ton on Craigslist, pretty loaded, and priced at $65,000!!

Yes, agreed!
I am told I could still get 20 - 22K for mine! I think that is absurd....
I paid 500 bucks for my first used pickup many years ago, a 67 GMC 3/4 ton



What you are "told" you can get and what you "can" get are two different things altogether. You may get what you're told selling private but getting what you're told in a book or on a website from a dealer is mostly BS. KBB tells me my 2016 2500HD with 50K miles in great condition with no wrecks is worth $37K trade but the most any of the 15 or so dealers I visited would offer, in real numbers with no shell game BS, is @ $30K.

When I ordered my 1999.5 Ford F-350 (in Jan.'99) I had two engine upgrade options:
1) V-10=$285
2) PS diesel=$4,000

I ordered said Ford with said PS engine/6sp manual/4WD/manual everything/crewcab/and AC.


Three months later it was delivered.

The window sticker said $37,600 (rounded).

My invoice total cost was $29,500 (rounded).


I plan to do the same thing with a 2026 F-600.

Ordering a truck between now and the next 3+ years? NO WAY!

My first pickemup cost $3350 a Chevy Luv 2wd 50 years ago.
2002 Ford one ton 7.3 cost $35k. It is worth around $20k.
Next truck will be a an F-250 XL diesel but it will be awhile.

But that's beyond MSRP by a wide margin and not indicative of what even the manufacturer suggest as to the sales price via MSRP.

If I thought I could get almost $100k for a mid grade mid size hybrid chit box, I would too! If the market bears that, then the consumer is to blame.
No different than every Tom Dick and Harry advertising their 200k miles diesel pickups for $30k. (I thought I was cutting a fat hog last year when I got $27k for a 190k mile diesel pickup, even though it was a "holy grail" model, lol.)
If you offer me too much money for something, I'm not one to kiss a gift horse in the mouth.

As long as the economy keeps trying to keep up with the massive inflation, this will not end. But if it ends abruptly, it's not going to be pretty for alot of "gotta have it now" people!

The problem is lack of supply. Where are the 2022 models?
