Yea I figured lol. Told me Ford wouldn't allow them but then I asked why Ford cares what they put on their lot. No real answer there. Even said they couldn't get banks to finance cars over 100k.
BS alarms went off in my head but decided to ask a legit source.

Thank you.

Was debating on trading in the Gen 1 for a Gen 2 until I got a low trade in. 6k lower than Carmax/Vroom.
That's insane.
Car Dealers are Dinosaurs and will be extinct soon. Ford's new "Ford Model e" and its "dealer less platform" will lead eventually to ALL Ford products being sold directly to consumers, and will service them through their own Ford owned service locations...

Book it!
Ok. LOL

Dealership margins are low enough that it will keep manufacturers from wanting that role.

This last weekend my wife and I went to a Toyota dealer and were quoted a laughably low trade in on our vehicle. Total waste of my time.

They better plan on getting laws changed in pretty much every state in the Union.

I can't imagine that happening, period. The amount of time, money, etc that would need to be spent in order to secure something like that would be insane. Plus, getting enough parties onboard to push it through would be nearly impossible in every state, minus California.

@13COBRA - When are the order banks opening back up for Mavericks and do you have any base model hybrids coming soon? I'm trying to get my FIL to come order one through you once their '22 Highlander Hybrid comes in. Long story short, he traded his '16 F150 and '18 Outback in for a '22 Ascent Touring right before Christmas and it got totaled last week thanks to a firetruck running into them...

SID...they've already ANNOUNCED their new Ford e Program, which will work AROUND current contracts and legalities with Dealers. And if you don't think they'll have HUGE support from this whitehouse to do ANYTHING that would escalate sales of electric vehicles...you just WATCH!

Direct to Consumer is how it will evolve..and quickly.

They're saying July/August timeframe. No, I don't. All the Mavericks I have coming in are sold.

Yes, they have. No, they are not working around the Franchise Laws.

Dealer dependent. When I sold my 18 Ex Sport, some were giving me less than what I owe. The dealer that bought off me, gave me more than what Carmax/Vana/Vroom was offering me.
