+1, 20% or 50%, doesn't mean anything.

OP has really low sales tactic.
Moreover, how come 20% for ford a good deal?
Normally you get 20% of THIS YEAR's model on April or May; 25%-30% on employee price in the summer; 30%+ at the end of the year.
Last year, hmm... I would say 40% at least.

20% off on a $40000 vehicle doesn't seem bad.
Seems local, not on the Ford website.

Can you provide an example of 30% off on employee pricing for Fords? Which models are that? That sounds tempting and we can wait until the next event. starting our planning now.

Don't forget, once you drive it out of the lot, it's 80% off what you just paid.
as opposed to anything else you buy.

Because of human nature, cars are not allowed to have a return policy, because once it's registered and driven on the road it's 'used'. As a result you cannot return it. Whereas you can return a TV, couch, etc. BUT if you couldn't what do you think it would be worth? Go and try and buy a TV and put it on Kijiji right away, or a couch, or a spatula, or pretty much anything. I guarantee you will not get what you paid for it and likely will be offered from 50-75% of it's retail value. Buyers put more faith in buying from a store where there is usually recourse rather than buy from an individual. Pretty much anything you buy, once you open it and use it, no matter how slight is going to take a 20% hit on the retail value.

It's a very cliche statement.

edit: point is, it's perceived value changes due to what the public is willing to pay for it. If a dealership were able to resell a car for the new price, you would see them accept returns, but people don't. Whereas a TV if unopened can be returned because there is no trace that it was given to another customer. All you have to do is ask yourself if you had a choice between buying a TV brand new on the shelf, or one that a customer is returning , but has never been opened which would you choose?

So in the end there is a perceived value change that would actually impact a buyer IF they had to return, but in reality there is no actual decrease in value, because it's value was determined when it was new. There is no way to get the new car at the lower price, so the value is the original price. To selectively point out market changes due to psychology as if they were unique is unhelpful. Most all items have the same loss of value the moment you open it and use it.

So the point is, if you want something NEW then you pay the new price, and if you want something used, then you pay the used price, but you don't lose anything when you buy it because that is what you are paying for. :)

You can get up to $10K-$15K in discounts all year round at any high volume Ford dealership.

on what? We are looking for an SUV. Which models give 30% off?

edit: OK, I think y'all are blowing smoke about 30% off. I just ran unhaggle report and a ford escape se awd is msrp 30849 dealer cost 29079. I would love to get for 21500, but that sounds ridiculously low. Maybe someone can post some actual deals at 30% off. That would be a great deal. Otherwise, I think y'all are blowing smoke. AND I doubt you can get 10-15 k off anything except the top tier trucks. I just did another for a ford xlt super crew. I don't know about trucks, but retail is 42349 with invoice at 38017. 30% off would be 29644 and 10-15k off would be 27349-32349. I'd like to see some invoices or quotes from people who actually got these 30% off and 10-15k off a 40k truck. I doubt it's possible and quite frankly think they are made up.

My last car shopping was for a 2015 ford fusion SE. During that summer I found at least $4k discount for some $30K model (you may get costco discount and some extra on top it as well when haggle with sales). Finally I pulled trigger on November. I bought my car (fusion se) for $22500 after everything, and I received a set of winter tires with rims for free. the total value should be $27K + $1.5K freight + $0.8K tires + whatever tax in your province.

the discount on SUV may be tighter though. But who knows. Plus Ford is going downwards nowadays. So you may still be able to grab some decent deals anyway.
P.S. didn't follow the car market recently. a quick check tells me that ford's price doesn't increase much due to weak Canadian dolor (not like other brands). So you may save $1-2K if you choose ford. but whether ford discounts its quality it is another story....

I don't know about 30% discount...however, I do know from practical experience that "dealer cost" doesn't mean much. It's dealer rebates, kickbacks, incentives where the savings can be haggled on. Dealer cost is just a gimmick so they can say they're losing money...selling it to you below their cost, it is manipulative as it is designed to stop you from asking for a lower price than "below dealer cost". IMO.
