    I disagree with you.
    GA and Alabama offering $2K - $3.7 discounts on Raptors.
    I will provide link to GA discount, but I will save the Alabama one for myself just incase they go down further to make me give up 2019 for the 2018.

    here is Georgia deal ($3K discount):
    2018 Ford F-150 Raptor Winder GA 20892304

    I offered dealer $75K out the door, and he wants $75,300. This is for the car above. I am very cost conscious, and will only pay MSRP or less OTD. Trust me it is possible. Just have to have the right mindset and patience.

    Most people here on the forum bought their Raptors above MSRP or at MSRP + tax and ADM fee. They are in denial of reality now that the discounts are showing up . This is because 2019 is a month away for ordering request.
    Even if I buy 2019, I will pay at least $2K below MSRP; However, I will rather pay OTD = MSRP (no tax no ADM fee) for 2018 model. The live shocks in 2019 model to me is a gimmick.

    Don't let people deter you mate. The sky is the limit for the brave!

    You disagree that I called dozens of dealers offering discounts on their Autotrader Raptor ads that actually turned out to be $10k ADMs?????

    Discounts on Raptors are possible, but as you are finding out, dealers are really stingy giving them out even in low demand areas. Walk into any dealer and you can get $7k lopped off an XLT within the first few minutes. Definitely not the case with Raptors.

    Well I proved why I disagreed with the bait and switch, by providing the link to the dealer giving $3K discount without ADM fee. I even have another with higher discount.
    If you live in Cali, please do not buy from there, buy it out and pay shipping.

    Sir you are right for now about more discount for XLT, but from August next month to release of 2019, I bet you that raptor 2018 will be going $5K - $7K under MSRP. If you doubt it I will post the price here. Those cars were not worth the initial MSRP offering. Dealers played their luck and people fell into their traps.
    I seen people pay $67K out the door for 2018 raptor with $69K MSRP in Texas. Dealers wont really tell anyone how much it really cost to build these cars. I wont be shocked if it only cost $45K - $50K to build them.
    Ford already has a design in place just material needed.

    Wow, you have no clue how the manufacturer/dealer relationship works. Keep demanding a $7k discount because of how inexpensive it is to build a Raptor and let us know how it goes.

    Time will tell. It will happen. If $2k - $4k are happening now, and yet people are not buying due to future release of 2019.
    I believe you are the type of guy that probably touted how raptor can never sell MSRP. I have no qualm with people who bought it earlier however, this is real life, no demand means more discount. 2018 is end of life, and 5 cars I have on my radar are still in stock at Alabama, Georgia, and Florida.
    Dealers lie about high demand. Reality has caught up to the fake hype. Raptor selling off the shelf lie that warranted fake $10k fee is nothing but fake news.

    I will shame you by showing $5k plus below MSRP, or you will shame me is it doesn't happen. With the current discount, luck is on my side

    I looked through multi threads. The buyer got lucky. It was at Waco Texas and the dealership couldn't sell, so they pretty much gave it away.
    Even here in this forum their is a similar one in Arkansas. See the first page on this thread.

    I cannot blame some rich folks willing to have their toy right now. I respect them and wish I had the means to spend like that, in fact most people here will still get 2019, if the live shocks really do what ford touts it does. For folks like me who are more practical, I will make sure I maximize my purchase. I will not upgrade to new raptor after my purchase, until the TRX forces ford to upgrade the v6 to v8. Trust me ford will be forced to do it, or else, ram will steal their cookies .

    Buying mine in Wisconsin. Msrp 71k(ish).. Bought for 3k under Msrp. Glad to hear that it seems like I did at least "OK"..?

    While shopping I found exactly what I was looking for in a 2017 with 7k miles. Ford dealership in Indiana has it and they're listing this USED 2017 for 4k over original sticker price.. I hope they sit on it for a long time..thats insane. Salesman told me "this is what it's worth now"... My reply "I'll bet that's not what you told the poor sap who traded it in!"...
