My 04 F150 has been showing its age basically since I got it, but it's still worth what I paid for it, and I'm tired of worrying about my main vehicle, so the wife and I decided it was time for me to get a new truck.
I've been shopping for a couple weeks now, test drove a Nissan Frontier, hated its interior, then test drove a Chevy Colorado and just loved it, so that was the mark. I've been looking online for good slightly used models, but anything 2016+ is minimum 25k for the options I want. While looking around, I found a dealer in Houston offering brand new 2018 2WD Z71s with the 308hp V6 for $26,480, which is 8k below what I was quoted at my local dealer for a similar truck
So I reached out to the Internet sales manager about this, and they matched the price for this truck:
So it's a 2W Z71, tow package, cloth/leatherette seats, 8" touch screen stereo, heated/cooled seats, and the 3.6l 308hp V6 (virtually identical to the Camaro V6 that makes 335hp). I put in a deposit on it, and they'll honor that offer until Feb 28th. I'll be selling my pickup, my 04 Golf, and my Subaru, hopefully before the 28th, but if not I'll still be picking up this truck and selling everything else. Tired of having all the shitboxes to worry about, so I'm paring the herd down to only 2 shitbox BMWs
This is my first brand new vehicle, ever. I'm pretty excited.
