66k for an F150?  Geez...
I find it insane too, but people are buying 'em at that price point, and even higher. Utter silliness.

Soon car payments are going to be mortgages.

Mine is now higher than my mortgage.  Granted, I have a low mortgage.

There's two ways to look at it...
1. The sticker on my Lincoln 6 years ago was a hair over $50k.  The truck has all of the same features plus additional safety stuff and more advanced electronics PLUS has the capability to tow 12,700 lbs.  So, $16k more, but it's 6 years newer, has more features, and substantially more capability.
2. It's a, not built all that well, Ford and should never cost this much.

What are really, really poor values to me are XLT's.  I test drove a $56k window sticker XLT that lacked substantial features that come standard in a Corolla or Honda Fit.  Granted, Ford prices them stupid high so they can throw $10k worth of incentives at them, but at the end of the day they are still expensive and stripped of features.  With just a bit of negotiating I got $9k off of sticker on a Platinum that is actually pretty darn nice with lots of features.

Still, that makes it $57k.  So, where's my color changing ambient lighting and CD player!!!

Soon car payments are going to be mortgages.

Some places offer 110 month loans on a little as 25k$ .. and with average consumer credit ratings being in the 600's ... that 110 months is at 3.x% or higher :(  it is pure insanity.   As to truck prices, they were always naturally higher due to utility nature... then the ad campaigns (particularly out here in the PNW) made them more desirable  'safer'  ... then they turned into pavement princess cars with all the car niceties and the market demand went up.. and up... and now we have 'super platinum edtion' trucks that never even see sod in the bed,  and Eddie Bauer/Harely Davidson chrome plated rigs that see more wax than a bikini shop.

FORD F-150 RECALL TO PREVENT ENGINE HEATER CABLE FIRES
Ford recalls 33,500 trucks with engine block heater cords that may suffer electrical shorts. Z

FEBRUARY 28, 2020 Ford F-150 fires are possible if the trucks are 2015-2016 models equipped with engine heaters and 3.5-liter GTDI engines.

A recall of more than 33,500 F-150 trucks is necessary because of engine block heater cables that are the wrong length and may not have enough protection against heat.

High temperatures can cause an electrical short, disable the heater and trip the breakers or outlets used with the cables. This can occur when the F-150 is parked and the engine block heater is plugged into an outlet..

Ford F-150 customers with questions should call 866-436-7332 and refer to recall number 20S08.
