    Didn't take long for Ford to take the EV tax credit

    It doesn't have to. Multiple things can be true at one time. Demand was crazy in late 2021/early 2022. We're now in a correction and Ford raised the price of the Lightning significantly when other hot sellers are increasing less.

    I'm sure there will be when pricing is released (next week?).

    Increased demand with unchanged supply = higher prices. The extended credits are driving prices up. With democrats controlling the house I don't think anyone is betting on this bill not being signed into law.

    Ford lobbied for it. It wasn't so they would make less money.

    Didn't take long for Ford to take the EV tax credit

    Article was from a couple weeks ago. Agree it's not well written but you can order a base Maverick for $20995 right now. Sure the Maverick is cheaper, but it's not seeing the same price hikes. It's crazy to think that the manufacturers aren't pricing the rebates into their vehicles.

    They don't qualify for the full amount. They still get the partial. My point stands.

    Didn't take long for Ford to take the EV tax credit

    This isn't the same market we had a year ago. The 2023 Maverick pricing was just released and the XLT base price only increased by $80. A loaded Lariat is about $1k more. This is absolutely in response to the tax credits. Watch GM walk back their bolt price reduction too...

    They drank our milkshake. Looks like the inflation reduction act just inflated the cost of a Lightning by about $7500.

    I like the idea, but I'm not digging the font if I'm being honest.

    GT Performance Edition 20" wheels now available aftersales for $1430 per set (TPMS included) - Part # M-1007K-M2080

    I think rolling resistance (tires) plays a part as well. I am going to find out when I mount a set of stock GT tires on the GTPE rims.

    Mach E GT vs F-150 Lightning Drag Race; And the winner is.............

    This is my take as well. That Lightning with the long-range pack is also...what, a $75-80+k vehicle?

    mach e vs chevy bolt euv - Thoughts???

    In my opinion, the charging speed of the Bolt is prohibitive for longer trips. You are going to be miserable charging at 50kw. The SR MachE isn't fast, but it will be 50-100% faster. Every time I see a Bolt at EA, the owner is either reclined sleeping with a pillow and blanket, or reclined...

    Do bugs love Cyber Orange more?

    Lighter colors are worse generally. White is awful for attracting birds.
