Want a brand new pickup truck or SUV? Just $110,000! (How can anyone afford a new car these days?)
Detroit auto show 2023.
Every new car starts out at over $40,000, and that's just for the basic bare-bones models without any additional features:



A new Jeep Wagoneer will set you back $110,000.

A new Dodge Ram TRX starts out at $100,000 with just the basic features. Additional features can push the price well over $125,000.

Are there actually idiots out there paying over $100k for a pickup truck? How dumb can people be?

Despite low sales figures for the past few years, the price of pickup trucks keeps going up:



Is the automobile industry headed toward self-destruction?

Only a dumb fucking idiot would ever submit to buying something like this for that price. Last car I bought was in 2018 fully loaded Honda accord for $22,000 and I thought I got ripped off. I have 51,000 miles on it now and I’ll never buy another new car.

No thanks. My 20 year old turbo diesels will still be on the road long after these computerized bank loans have been melted down for scrap.

I owe less on my house than someone is going to pay for a truck. That makes me feel pretty smug.

People don’t understand. I have a brother that works at GM in Fort Wayne Indiana for the last 34 years, getting ready to retire. Once they leave the factory, the government counts it as a sold vehicle. They have tens of thousands of vehicles sitting in open fields that I’ve never been sold that were counted as sold.

It depends on what you buy. We just bought a brand new Nissan for 45,000.

Brand new vehicles slowly deteriorating in open fields.

Maybe the military will start offering a free pickup truck as an enlistment bonus?

A Ford F-150 LT (that's the trim level even below XLT) has a list price about 35,000. If you really want fabric seats and rollup windows, they're available.

It is the turbo 4. An upgraded engine would cost more.

ICE cars catch on fire more often than EV's, but a battery fire in an EV is probably worse than an engine fire in an ICE car.

Wouldn't there be enough metal in the way to block EMF's from the batteries or engine?

Boomers can afford to pay and they are. Straight cash or 1.9% APR for 36 months… Common folk Gen Xers, Millennials, and younger are only buying vehicles around $30k or below because that’s all they can afford.

That is why they remain poor. Status is an all-consuming albatross for the poor as they spend about 5 hours a day watching TikTok videos and so desperately want to emulate the "success" they see played out on their phones.

Low-income people always have newer cars and the latest Iphones and are always in some crisis. The millionaires I know (and I know several hundred) dress and act as if they live in a van down by the river.

People that had to work for their wealth do not want to be singled out when in public. That is a fact.
