    Hi,

    Anyone purchase a 2018 Raptor at MSRP in Texas? If so, do you mind sharing the dealership name, and if possible, the sales guy.

    I'm in Austin, but willing to travel to Dallas, Houston, etc.

    I'm open to purchasing outside of Texas, but I have a trade. It complicates it a bit when dealers are beyond 200+ miles.

    Thanks :favorites13:

    I did try friendly and they wanted 5k over and really would not budge. It was a little weird because they have really low prices on all of their other Fords compared to the other Houston dealers.

    I ordered mine at MSRP for Gullo Ford in Conroe. Chris Hawk was my sales guy. I placed order early Oct and I should have it before Christmas.

    I picked up my '18 two weeks ago from local dealer for MSRP but in all fairness I worked for them for many years and have bought quite a few vehicles from them as well along with a Mustang GT a few months ago.

    At the recommendation of a few Houston members, I ordered mine at MSRP from Daryle Nelson at Gullo north of Houston on I45. Worked out for me since I live just south of Conroe where Gullo is.

    There are exactly 121 Raptors within a 50-mile radius of my zip code (Carrollton) - either on the lot or in transit. Not a single dealer willing to sell one of them at or below MSRP.
    I've got multiple offers to ORDER one at MSRP. I'm going to hold out and see if I can get a deal worked between Christmas and January 1. If not, I'll just put in an order and wait.

    I have had one car in the last 6 that was not an ordered car.

    It had a bunch of stuff I didn't want including a sunroof but the deal was good.

    Aside from it being the biggest pile of dung of a car, I realized that I am a control enthusiasts and not having a car the way I wanted just bugged the living daylight out of me daily.

    If you put an order in you might get your truck at the same time that people are trying to move their inventory, and it won't be exactly what you want most likely.

    Just my $0.02

    Picked up my '18 today for MSRP in Carrollton. I'll say it's taken a couple of months of talk to get it - and this is the 4th vehicle I've bought from the same sales guy.

    If you work 'em long enough and hard enough, all while being incredibly polite, eventually you'll wear them down.

    Ruby red - and sure is pretty.
