Default Fair Price for 2008 FX4

I'm looking at a nice 2008 fx4 with a little over 8,000 miles. The dealer is asking what I think is a ridiculous $23,500.00. I've done some researh but would like to get some other opinions on a realistic offer.

Thanks
Jack

for that price you can almost get a brand new one, when i was buying my f150 they could not budge on the price till i told them i dont need it and there were more over at the ford dealer, it was at a honda dealer, then all the sudden someone else was looking at the truck aswell but they would give it to me $3,000 cheaper. so you can just talk em down man, find little problems, scratches, small dents, anything

I'd go as high as $15,000 for it I think. It isn't a Level 2, right (I think Level 2 stopped in 2006, right?)? Some dealers are on crack though. I still some 35th anniversary Camaro SS's and Trans Am's at dealers trying to get over $30,000 for them...

holy shit. 23k? just the fact that its a 2008 and not a 2011 shouldve brought the price well under 20k and then little things as noted will bring it down even more.

I looked at a 2011 Sport also today and the MSRP was 28,000.00 but I figured with some negotiating could probably get it for not much over $23,00.00 so the 2008 for $23K was absurd. I think dealers are setting prices super high in hope that the final price will end up just high. We recently bought a fully loaded (everything but leather) Black 2005 FX4 Level11 for my son and the dealer asking price was $22k . I made an offer of $14K and the salesman says no way we can do it for that. I said fine I understand and left. My son thought he'd missed a really nice truck but I said ,watch this guy will call before noon with a counter offer. Well it wasn't more than an hour and he called and surprised me by accepting the offer without a counter offer. So we have a 2005 Ranger FX4 Level11, a 2006 F350 Diesel Crewcab and I'm looking to add a 2007-8 FX4. My wife also drives a 2007 Escape. I want to keep the F350 pretty much just for towing( 8000lb Airstream) and use the Ranger for every day driving.

A fair price for that would be $17,5k-$18k because low miles. But you can get a 2011 for like $1k more. You may be able to even get them to like $16,8k-$17k. Just depends on how you work it. I payed $16k when I bought my 08 last sept with 38k miles on it. But I talked them down from $18,3k.
