There is a formula Ford goes by, how many you ordered last month, year how many are on your lot and Iím sure other factors. When it gets built is even more complicated. You would think a special order would move the front of the line, nope. It has to do with the priority the dealer puts on it, how many the dealer can order and lots of other factors. The way I understand it a dealer will make about $2000 on a $50,000 vehicle they sell at invoice. They have hold back, interest, advertisement, that Ford pays for and several more things.
We have been Ford Folks for many years. Joys Dad worked in the training dept in Detroit and we always got our new trucks at 6% below dealer inventory plus got any dealer incentives off also. It was always much cheaper to buy Ford. After looking for 10 months for our 1st 5th wheel and realizing the weight issue (Joy did not want a 30-35 footer), we looked at both Ford and Ram. As it turned out, it just made for a better pulling beast to get the Ram.
