    Hi all,
    I don't have a Raptor, but am looking into selling my 2016 Nissan Titan XD Pro4X Cummins and purchasing a 2019 Raptor as a daily driver. I drove a 3 different Raptors over the past 3 days and am impressed after my short stint in each.

    I've attached the window sticker/web pic of the vehicle I'm seriously considering (as well as a pic of my current truck just because). If anybody could give advice on how much discount can be had on these I'd appreciate it. I'm sure it is fairly little and depends on a particular dealership's incentives, but thought I'd ask. I'd prefer the grey, but the performance blue is my second choice and every other option is the way I'd spec it myself.

    I love my XD, which after 10k in modifications has a fairly good mix of work capacity, power, on-road comfort and off-road capability. I really don't use the semi-HD capacity of the truck much though and I think a Raptor would suite my desires quite a bit better...it would be extremely refreshing to have a vehicle designed from the factory to do what I want instead of piece-mealing modifications trying to make it something the factory wouldn't offer.

    My personal goal if/when I get a Raptor will to leave it well enough alone (if that's possible). I haven't managed to keep a vehicle even close to stock in quite some time, but I think I could be content with the Raptor with only a few basic additions (i.e. maybe aftermarket longer bump stops for occasional towing/heavy weight in bed...or something similar).

    Anyway, I just wanted to say hi. I won't ask a lot of questions yet since I'm sure most topics have already been discussed at length...I am relatively competent in using the SEARCH function before wasting everybody's time with redundant posts. Cheers. Raptor pic.JPG Raptor window sticker.JPG 20181202_141812.jpg

    It depends on where you go and who you talk to. Here in the Wyoming Colorado area they still are showing mark ups. Either way I think it's worth it, these trucks are awesome. Best of luck.

    Thanks. I'm pretty sure I should be able to get a slight discount in MD, though the salesman was telling me they all sell for MSRP with a $300 dealer processing fee. We'll see.

    I'm in Mississippi and majority of dealerships in the state, and surrounding states, are sticking strictly to MSRP pricing and no discounts or markups. I ordered mine in January and got it for what it MSRP'd for; I literally custom built it online and printed the custom build sheet and gave to the dealership and said "I want this". They ordered and it's on it's way; will be here in couple weeks. I found the MSRP (at cost) pricing to be easier to deal with.

    If I could have found someone that would discount the costs I would have purchased from them, but I was satisfied with buying with no mark ups.

    Best of luck; hope you get to join the Raptor Owner Club :)

    After a long evening, I finished the deal and just pulled her into the garage...pardon the mess.

    I want those rims! Never cared for the 17/18 bead locks.

    Congrats on the new truck.

    Yeah, I really like the wheels. They are my favorite stock wheels on a vehicle I've purchased. I also like the stock forged BBS wheels that came with my ISF, but they aren't wide enough.

    Although supplies are increasing and transaction prices are coming down, some dealers are still asking above sticker. Your best bet is with a high volume dealer (avoid the mom & pops that may get 1 or 2 / month). As mentioned in one of my posts, something is going on with the Recaros - I ordered mine with the package & 10 weeks later it came in with the carbon fiber package (that I didn’t order because it’s included with the seats), but the seat pkge was omitted. I have no regrets with the leather seats - they’re well-bolstered and supportive (and they certainly look better than the black & blue ). You should be able to get a couple of points off the msrp if you’re willing to put the effort in, but that’s about it.

    The dealer had two identically optioned 2019 Raptors. They still have the other one to my knowledge...Koons Ford of Baltimore. They were decent to work with.
