Price drop come January

Been eyeing the 6.7 and will be needing to retire the f150 soon as im reaching 200,000 miles and it got a lot of wear. The trucks im looking at right now that are within the mileage and interior package I would like are roughly 40-43k.. Im new to the car buying world as this will only be my 2nd vehicle purchase. What are the possibilities of waiting it out until January in hopes to see a decent price drop on a 2011/12 model? From what I can tell, the 6.7 holds value extremely well, so curious as to others thoughts

I would think you will find better pricing now than January. Depending on your location I know when the snow starts flying around here the price goes up.

I always figured that the best month to go lookin for a vehicle would be December. Gotta figure the car lots are pretty empty around then.

This is true. Best time is late November into December. Wouldn't hurt to start looking now. Might not be any deals to be had if you wait too late. Check out Russell and smith off 610. I had an easy time with them.

I work at a CDJR dealership and I gotta tell you guys, if you're looking for the absolute best deals, go on the last day of the month! Dealers are always looking to hit their quota and they get a certain percentage more for each car they sell over that quota. Just a tip!

There is the IRS sales tax deduction possibility to consider. I was able to itemize last year because of that.
