Hey everyone. First post. Getting educated in everything Raptor. I am Getting close on making a purchase of a 2020 802A Raptor. But what I find interesting is that here in Georgia, there are several used Raptors, fully loaded, average miles and appear to be clean. Yet they are sitting on the used lots for 60, 90 and well past 100+ days?! Typically that means you can seriously negotiate but what success have any of you had with buying a used Raptor and negotiating down with one sitting on the lot? Just seems odd to me for them to be sitting. Is Demand falling off? Folks waiting for 2021-2022 version? What's the deal?

Welcome and good luck on the purchase. Hard to say and is probably a combination of some new trickling out, high cost of gas, just a lot of used inventory at the moment in your area. It’s not like that down here. You won’t even find that much in used but a handful of Ford trucks on a dealers lot. And I’m sure there marked up sky high.

Go down and bargain with those dealers. If they won’t budge on price, that’s why they are sitting most likely.

Welcome to the place. I've never heard of Raptors sitting for that long. That dealer must be holding out with very high pricing. I agree with @K223 go try and make a deal with them. Where I live, there are so many raptors on the road, hasn't been any at dealers for months, the demand is high for them. @MurderedOutSVT lives in Georgia, maybe he knows the dealer you seen those at?

Oddly enough, there are usually 3-4 Raptors on the used lots in Athens. I suspect lease trade ins or something to do with the snobby college kids getting a new ride. I did see a '21 on the lot in Loganville over the weekend

I’m here in atl too, the ones I’ve seen are typically 2-3 years old and priced very high. I’m assuming it’s because ppl are waiting on the new new …like me. With used prices being at an all time high, these dealers are trying to cash in. To me it’s as simple as that. Trucks are wildly popular down here, there is no lack of demand or desire…probably just folks wanting the latest and the greatest.
