Your Experience With Ford's New Truck Discounts


Recommended Posts

I was wondering if you would share what sort of discount you were offered with Ford on buying a truck or any new vehicle.

 

I was offered 80,000 baht discount on a 919,000 list price truck. so i think about 8%.

there were some other minor perks like free insurance for a year and some exterior trim options thrown in.

 

but what I am really interested in is the cash discount you may have been offered. 

 

I am just trying to gauge if this normal, or a year end type of discount or what.  

 

thank you.

That contradicts the commonly held notion that the not so clever Thai business owner when faced with low occupancy and a dwindling footfall will hike their prices before countenancing any discounts. H

Historically cash discounts were generally not offered, but apparently that is changing, couple guys on another thread apparently got some nice discounts. 

 

Yeah, the stick on body stuff is <deleted>, I would not sneer at the "free" insurance, it's another B20K or 2% and you can usually get decent film, but make sure you get the brand/type specified before you sign.

ok thanks. yes insurance 20K it all adds up. 🙂

they did also offer free tint. somehow I will have to learn what to ask for. And 9,000 baht more discount if i bought the truck that day, but i didn't.

Again, make sure you know what tint you want, and have them agree prior to signing. The have a good bit of flexibility on this. 

 

You should expect to get the 9,000 on your next visit as well.

 

As I understand it, they are do for a full platform update next year so that will be the end of the discounts...

Otherwise, with a cash payment,

you can easily get all the extras from the catalog for free...

8% is basically the discount that's offered to 'Friends And Family' of Ford employees (varies a little bit depending on what model etc). Comes off the dealer margin which is why dealers don't like offering cash discounts. But these are tough times ...

Dealers don't offer discounts because the car companies wont let them. When one dealer can offer a discount, all the dealers can offer the same, because it's what the manufacturer allows.

 

The dealers are allowed to give <deleted> away.

I discovered a deal that may suit you..... When looking at a new Benz, the salesgirl informed me that if I bought the car, I got her with it! Most expensive short-time ever!

 

Back in the West, dealer staff used to get 20%, though we never gave customers more than 12.5% and would always try for the full list price.

 

Shop around and play one dealer off against another. Money is tight now and dealers are struggling. This being Thailand you never know what you will be offered!

4 weeks ago but I get the supplier discount..... @ 919k I assume you are looking at the FX4, on my list I can can get that fora 12% discount.

 

Lean on the dealership though they have more fat they can cut from the price.... FWIW a new FX4 will debut in the coming months.

actually the very nice and helpful sales woman at Ford was asking me very personal questions right out the gate. 

married? girlfriend? family?   

and of course the most important question. "are you going to pay cash?" "sure honey who doesn't pay a million baht for a truck that they don't really need?"' :cheesy: 

 

i told her i would come back the next day and she texted me to make sure I was coming and when i walked in I did not recognize her she had obviously spent the morning having her hair and makeup done. the other women were all smiling at how the first date was going. I told her I changed my mind and instead of white I wanted a red pickup like a fire truck and she actually said "Oh red is a sexy color!" and then pulled out a photo of her car and said "my car is red and sexy too! see? we are the same!" :shock1:

 

the problem now is apparently Ford has run out of new red XLT or FX4 Rangers in Thailand.
