Ford Offers $7,500 Cash Back on 2010 F-150
For a truck that's priced in the mid twenties, $7,500 cash back sounds like a close-out deal that's too good to be true.
But aside from a few hoops you need to jump through, it's a deal that's good, and true: $6,500 in cash back and $1,000 in bonus cash if you finance through Ford Credit.
Now, for the aforementioned hoops: Not every F-150 gets the full discount. For the full $7,500 rebate you need to buy an XLT trim level, which starts at $25,505, and add the Sync/Chrome/Tow Package (which brings the total lowest price to get the discount to $26,945 before the cash back).
The deal is part of the company's Year End Sales Event to clear out the 2010 models before the 2011s hit lots. The deals expire Oct. 4.
My Recommendation for Car ShoppersTrueCar, Edmunds, and 1-800 Car Show are the quickest way to see the lowest car prices in your area. These sites show you no-haggle prices from dealers closest to you - and the deals are usually really good. This should be the first step you take when negotiating your car price. Follow this up with my checklist to make sure you squeeze out every last bit of savings.
California Residents - Important:There is a new online car buying service called Roadster, available only to California residents, which I highly recommend you try - especially if you hate the stress of haggling with a car salesman. They provide an expert concierge who negotiates the price of the car and delivers it to your home with zero hassle - you never have to interact with a dealership. Here is my in-depth review of Roadster and why I recommend it.
