Choosing the Ford F-150 and The Platinum Trim

Expert Ratings

  • KBB Expert rating- 9.2/10


I think the F-150 ranks in the top of its class because of its design and capabilities. Some trucks have great capabilities but the F-150 in my opinion has a better interior design and look making it far superior than other trucks in its class.

Part 3

Important Definitions

  • MSRP- The manufacturer's suggested retail price.
  • Fair Purchase Price/Blue Book Value- The value that consumers are typically paying for this vehicle.
  • Dealer Invoice- The amount an auto dealership pays the manufacturer for a vehicle it puts on its lot.

Comparing prices

The prices are different because their might be a differing supply and demand towards the F-150 in these two dealerships.

Part 4

Other Trucks similar to the F-150

1. 2016 Toyota Tundra CrewMax = $48,221

2. 2016 Toyota Tacoma Double Cab Pricing = $33,154

Part 5


The car I would purchase would be the 2016 Ford F150 because out of all 3 of the cars I am familiar with the performance of an F150. The original choice is a better choice because It has features that I want that the other two trucks don’t have. The comparison choice is only better because it’s less expensive than the F150. With this information you can negotiate a better deal because the trucks are similar in size and style and the two others are less expensive.

Part 6


  1. Fair purchase Price = $52,583

  2. Down payment = $10,000

  3. 52,583 - 10,000

    1. 42,583

    2. 42,583 / 60 = $709.72

    3. Monthly payment = $709.72

Expenses and Planning

The job I would need to have to buy this truck would need to be a high paying job because F150 uses a lot of gas and maintenance costs are high. At this moment buying a new F-150 wouldn't be possible because it’s expensive and I dont get payed enough at my job to buy this vehicle.
