I'm about to close a deal for a you-know-what. I'm finding a large difference between prices in my home market of Denver other regions of the country. When I do a nationwide web search for Energy TItanium cars, specifying 501A with no sunroof, the cheapest new listings are all in the northern Virginia area. It's easy to find prices under $28,000, and a few as low as $26,000. Meanwhile, no Denver dealer is offering one less than $30,000, online or in person. A price differential of $3000-5000 remains. I could ship a car home from DC for just a grand.
Ford's incentives vary by region. Is this the whole difference? Or is it the isolation of Denver, where we seldom shop the next city over, 500 miles away? Has anybody else found an economic reason to buy remotely?
