When the Raptor first came out, the dealers were told depending on there truck sales of 3,000 dealers [Ford & Lincoln], most dealers would be lucky to see 2, maybe 3 raptors allocated to their lots in a year. They were putting $10k-25k addendum's on these vehicles because of the demand.Went to the dealership for a warranty recall and while checking out the new Raptors, I saw this sticker. They added $10,000 to the price of a Raptor, calling it a "Market Adjustment". Is this normal? Are people really paying more than MSRP on these things? I wonder if this is a harbinger of what we may see if the Ranger Raptor ever comes out?
Those willing to have their wallets dented the hardest and or most in order to have usually just "bragging rights" got what they wanted, and the dealers profited from it.. It creates a sense of urgency for the emotional buyers, Automotive sales is literally a psychological-contact sport on the sales floor. You can either dominate it, tread water really well, or wash out... It's not for everyone.
Demand is a funny human behavior..
And unless I haven't been paying attention, I last read that not only did Thailand get the Raptor Ranger first, we weren't slated to get it at all on our shores. Has this changed and where did you find the source for that information at?
