Does it make sense, considering the current inflation situation to take the 36 month loan @ 0.9%...or pay cash?
It will almost never make sense to pay cash instead of taking a loan with that rate. You'd only be saving a few hundred on interest anyway

Do you think the prices will ever be reduced, or once they go up, they will continue to go up.

ie. things go back in order, supply/demand meet. will MSRP's ever "retreat"? or once they move up, they stay up. I only ask, because I dont think ive ever seen an item go down once its been moved up.

or if dealerships ever move to "buy from home/ship to customer" which ive been reading about a lot recently, kind of like Carvana vroom etc. would they reduce pricing to cut out the middle man dealership? Tesla doesnt really have dealerships atleast ive never seen one. but I see those damn cars everywhere. EVERYWHERE. I feel like I see more tesla's than anything in the last year.
Agree with below. But I don't think we have reached the flatline yet. But when we do it will not go back. To many things have happened to keep it from ever contracting without a massive depression.

All the wage increases especially in manufacturing. Production and retail being a major factor. Those companies will have to keep margins up to profit. Those workers would immediately leave on the very assumption of a wage cut. Thus prices won't reduce.

I think price escalation will flatline, but I would be shocked to see any type of price contraction. What I suspect might happen is price stabilization being built into the options rather than starting msrp.

I think some of the price hikes are based on raw material cost increases, but much of the price hikes are likely due to high demand. Especially the Mach 1 and GT500; I suspect most of the price increase on those trims is demand; because they can; its Ford trying to get in on some of the ADM game.

Honestly what difference does it make? It’s all speculation as none of us actually know what’s behind these increases. The plan is simple. If you want a car and cannot afford the increase, order it now. If the increase isn’t an issue what are you waiting for?

its everything that goes into operating the business. Material costs, labor, parts and maintenance to run the business, insurance etc..

Everything we live with has gone up so factor all those cost items into running a auto mfg. Its gotta be insane. Also, they factor in inflation to the dollars of revenue, you can also figure the loss of production for closing plants due to shortages etc..

There is also the cost of debt going up with interest rising, so a cap heavy mfg relies on debt to pay for needed cap investments.

Im building a house and waiting for the loan to close, while that was happening my lumber cost went from 47K to 62K. Cant lock in building materials until the loan is available to pay for it.

I was lucky I ordered mine in early February, 2020 at invoice. It was delivered Mar 17 the week everything shut down. I told the dealer I would not take delivery until things opened up a bit. They were very cool, no pressure, “It’s yours, come get it when you’re comfortable.”

Each Sunday I would visit West Valley Ford to drool over it when no one was around. Finally, in early May I picked it up with 0% financing from Ford.

Best car deal I ever made.

I live in mortal fear of it being totaled and what it would cost to replace it, if I could based on the horror stories I read here.

Better for Ford to get the money than the stealerships.

Yeah, prices will likely never decrease for these kinds of products, but they might flatline for long enough to fall back in line with "normal" inflationary trends... one day... maybe.

I don't think demand is much higher than normal... the problem is supply.

Certainly could be. As the 22’ S550 is the end of the line demand would naturally be down. But lack of information on the sale of the S650 could be creating additional demand.

Considering the new 40mpg regulation. I would imagine Ford has been quiet as who knows how this is going to affect power plant and drivetrain design.

Prices will continue to rise. They may level off a bit but they will NEVER go back down. I have never seen that happen in my 6+ decades of time on this rock.

As these increases do not go into effect until Wednesday, I’m going to presume you will see them added to the current B&P numbers.
