Red face FX4 price in Vancouver... thoughts?

Hi guys,

I've been looking at F-150's more and more in the last few weeks and finally got around to asking for a price on a new 2011 FX4.

Two dealers had a fairly consistent cost, and I was wondering whether the "employee discount" is really worth it. The cost breaks down like this in ballpark numbers:

FX4 base model: $45,800
Ecoboost: $1,000
Painted running boards: $400
Rearview camera: $500
AC tax, destination fee: $1,550
"Delivery allowance": - $11,600
Tax (HST at 12%): $4,500

Total: $42,000
Total cost after price adjustments: $37,500. Reasonable?

I realize these costs don't really add up, but despite that... do these kinds of prices and discounts disappear after the employee savings month ends, or is it100% marketing BS and you can get the same prices next month as well?

Thanks for your advice in advance!

Very reasonable. I'm not sure about how the price will compare when "employee pricing" is over. If you want it, I wouldn't pass it up and find out the hard way the offer won't be available later on. Just my 2 cents.

Great price....I'd be all over that one.

The FX4 is a very well appointed trim level IMHO, (I've had two of them) and to scoop that up for less than $40,000 you're doing well.

Why bother waiting to see if something better comes along, when this price is pretty good? I'd get while the gettin's good.

Definitely post up some pics if you take delivery.

To put it in perspective, in 2005, I think the purchase price on my '04 FX4 was in the ballpark of the high 40's, and it didn't even have the leather interior.

I just put the deposit down!

FX4 with ecoboost, sterling gray, luxury package, rearview camera and painted running boards. Can't wait!

Photos to come... they said 2 months or less. Fingers crossed!

Ps. The price above didn't include the luxury package. Last minute decision!
