So - just bought a 2025 beginning of the year...got around 10% off of the "sticker" price from memory.
Now, year has been better than I anticipated financially - and looking like I will need to spend some profits on equipment "upgrades" for the operation.
Checking out local Deere dealer thinking possibly a 3 series - or perhaps a new Gator. Now know sticker going in - asked what my price would be. Basicslly told me little to no room to discount presently. On top of that Deere finance seems to be less generous too - now 4.9% - 84 months on a Gator (was 60 months - 0% on my last purchase 2 years ago - when rates were higher).
Are sales on 3 series just that good? Or are cutbacks having the desired effect on inventory levels?
Another thought was going to be "new truck time" - but I fear the GM strike is going to cause a similar issue. Less inventory - less discounting. And if your Ford - why discount too far to cater to the converts...let them come to you (price point alone - Ford seemingly has an edge on GM for similar specd base model 3/4 ton trucks).
