    Went to the Beyer Ford to pick up a work truck from service, while waiting went to check out the new pickup’s lined up. Ford prices are nuts. 42k for a Ranger, 85k for a Raptor, 38k + for a F150 even more for the 250 and 350 series and people complain about the Tacoma’s.

    I thought the Ranger was going to compete with the Tacoma? I haven’t purchased a new Tacoma lately (2015) but WOW that a ton of cash for a pickup truck.

    My 2019 TRD OR DCSB 4WD with Tech and Prem MSRP was $41.2k, doesnt seem out of the question. There was probably markup on the Raptor, my Dad paid $72k for his with an MSRP of $74k but the dealer did have a $5k markup to $79k, Dad wasnt having any of that.

    That just seems crazy for a pickup truck. Hope my 15 last a long time. I don’t think I could sign the paperwork on a 85k pickup.

    Guess so, have not really been looking at the prices on new trucks lately, and I thought 23k was a lot when I purchased my 03 Tacoma. But I was much younger then.

    They are around $37-38K decently equipped in this area (Atlanta)

    At $42k it must have been pretty well equipped.

    Most any loaded mid-size truck is going to MSRP in that ballpark.

    This is what happens when customers want all the latest gadgets and eletronics. It all ends on a vehicles in dealer lots.. It adds to the sticker price. If you want something more basic, you gotta special order it. But even that only goes so far. l miss the days of more basic trucks. Because I can't aford these prices.

    I’m sorry, I love my truck but there’s no Tacoma from the factory worth $40,000+! Just my opinion but damn, shits getting ridiculous. But on the other hand the Ranch truck (2019 F350 Lariat) was $72,000 so I guess it can always be worse. Just seems unreal that 20-25 years ago you could buy a house for what these Full size trucks are costing.

    Don’t talk about house prices... Hard to find a piece of grass for $42k these days

    For $40k+ it needs to do a heck of a lot better at being a truck. 25% more can get you something capable of towing 35k lb.

    I know right.

    That’s within 500.00 of what I paid for a 1 ton diesel 3 years earlier.

    People keep buying them. I know someone that just dropped 88,000.00 on a new F350. That’s 12000.00 more than what I paid for my first townhome 20 years ago, more than half of what I paid for my first home.

    Years ago we paid normal interest rates which cut down on the amount of what l purchased. Now, with very low interest rates. People pay a lot more for stuff than they normally would. If financing rates went up even a few percent, people would be screwed. They'd loose everything. . There's a whole generation that thinks these interest rates are normal. .

    As long as there are 4x4 tacomas available for under $30k out-the-door I'm a happy camper... not that I'll be needing another one anytime soon.

    45K for a Lariat Ranger local here, but that is a loaded truck. Seems about average price now days. Hopefully my 09 keeps on trucking for many more years.
