Title says it all. We have 7 of 58 for the Denver region, build time TBD should see one a month starting in Jan/Feb. Selling for $3k over MSRP. Deposit of $1k requested, can arrange for transportation for additional expense.



Can NOT sell/ship to CA emission states.

3k seems somewhat standard.

Why can't you ship to CA emissions states? I assume the vehicle is still legal in those states.

In order to sell to the CA states it requires the specific emission package shown below. We do not order them because if the buyer fails to take delivery we can not sell the car in CO. CA specify will not allow you to even bring a used car in if it is below 7500 miles.


I agree with Jobber, I hate the market adjustment on cars. But Ford allows it and if we don't follow the other stores we are leaving a lot of money on the table.

Good market but CA is the state that's pushing for 80% emissions reduction by 2050 (i think that's the correct year). How much does that extra emissions package cost?

All the emission packages are free, some models report as having less HP/torque although minor (~5hp).

5hp may be a concern for those who go on track a lot but for the general owner it's negligible. Going to be interesting to see how CA affects the car industry in the future if it's already felt by Ford dealerships.

Once they actually land demand could go either way. If demand turns out to be even hotter than expected dealers may increase the over MSRP asking price. Like the GTR, when released they were selling for insane amounts over MSRP, now they sell for ~$20K under MSRP because the supply caught up to demand and over inflated price increases.


Also we are down to 4 allocated units left.

True. Once landed though if they do not live up to the hype the price will drop, conversely if they exceed the hype prices may increase as supply has dropped due to prior orders.
