2 of course! Thus the marginal price for a Bronco Raptor today is about 50k over MSRP for cash and carry (actually I think this will be cash and wait like the rest of us) FOB Casper, WY

Sure, but it takes two to tango.

Under the assumption that the dealer wants to actually run an ongoing business they‘re going to accept what a customer will pay. Otherwise they’re not a dealer they’re a car collector.

what interests me more from this whole ADM thing is why Ford doesn’t raise their MSRP on the Raptors and other limited production vehicles. Why let the dealer or resellers take a slice? If they raised the MSRP by $5k on the 5000 (guess) Braptors and 25000 Raptors they’d make an extra $150 million a year, still sell all those trucks and customers would be delighted that they “didn’t have to pay over MSRP”.

The correct answer is always...

4. The transaction price.

The rest are just reference information (#1) or preliminary negotiating positions (#2, #3). When #2 and #3 finally converge, the transaction closes, documenting #4.

That is absolutely a ridiculous statement.

I agree
Ford should raise the prices
Can you imagine the whining!

Ford raises the price that dealerships have to pay then the dealerships will just charge the customers whatever Ford raised their prices. As long as Ford has no control over ADM it will continue as long as people keep paying over sticker.

It’s easy to keep paying over the sticker when the banks are approving loans for those prices too.

I highly doubt banks would give someone a loan 25K over sticker unless they have a huge down payment. unless they force them to buy gap insurance and pay a huge premium.
