You are not touching a 5.0 Lariat Supercrew for $37k.

5.0 Lariat starts at $44,375. Want 4wd? Make it $47,800.

Gotta keep the options similar or it isn't going to line up.

Another thing that adds cost is they don't really have the options very efficient. On the '150 I can do XL, chrome appearance package (so bumpers are not swiss cheese in 5 years) and FX4. Ranger I gotta have the $995 STX package to get the FX4 and an order of swiss cheese painted bumpers. Can't get FX4 without STX and you can not get FX4 with chrome bumpers.

And 4wd costs $510 more to add to the Ranger than it does than the F-150.

F-150 price stays closer to the same when you hit configure too, when I did it on the 4wd Lariat it went to $47,795. Instead of gaining $1000+/- it lost $5.

I think for as long as we have waited we are still getting an experimental truck builder thing.
