Default New Raptor on dealer lot

Went to the dealer today and saw a new Raptor on the lot. Basically fully loaded with options. About $69k MSRP sticker with a dealer "Rare Model" markup of an extra $20,000 making it $89K dealer list. Thought it was bad last year when the same dealer had a $15k markup on one but I think $20,000 extra is ridiculous.

Any thoughts, or am I the only "cheapskate"?

That's blatant greed, it's out of control....the pendulum will swing back someday.

Price it as high as the market will bear! No one is being forced to pay the markup, but some idiot out there probably will in this economy. Not greedy, just stupidity.

Oh and Dave, my wife would say you are not the only cheapskate. I think it's an endearing quality

I agree that markup is Ludacris.

That's California for you. When I was looking for an Excursion I had a dealer try to sale me an '05 with 140k+miles on the clock for $39k and barley budge on price. People pay those ridiculous prices that is why dealers ask for them. It wont stop. For that kind of coin you could build or close to complete a nice trophy truck.

It is and the gas models are priced so low you can damn near 3-4 trucks for what you would pay for a nice Excursion down here. "Their Rare" is what the dealer will tell you knowing nothing else about the truck.
