And that is why I didn't buy a newer Ranger a couple of years ago. That and I wanted a full size

^^ This. No-one with any sense is actually going to pay those prices - look up the dealer invoice, subtract current incentives, then allow a few percent for reasonable dealer profit, and that's the price you should get down to. And once that's settled, then discuss your trade-in, if you have one.

Around here, I wouldn't pay more than $15,750 for that truck. Oh, and my FX4 doesn't have carpet, and I prefer it that way

Yeah my truck has no carpet and its the best thing ever. Instead of having to get the carpet cleaned if I spill anything on it I can just get the mop and hose and Im set haha

Ford didn't need a bailout because FoMoCo saw the recession coming and prepared. Remember how Ford had laid people off and stirred up alot of dust? While General Motors and Daimler Chrysler just let it happen like being raped, Ford was proactive with pepper spray. Thats why my truck wasn't built by bailouts.

I shouldn't have said "ALL" options. I mean that they were listing options. Some are safety standard government regulated and not negotiable. Other things listed were options.

Bottom line is you pay 20 grand for a base model ranger you're nucking futs. These incentives don't last forever, and back in the day you got incentives on top of it being half the price. It's just too much no matter what. I'd pay $12k tops for a base model Ranger 4 banger 2wd standard cab 5 speed with carpet, AC, and sliding rear with alloys. That leaves the chrome package optional. That's as much as I can muster for a econobox 4 banger.
