Favourite Ford Dealerships and sales people - New and used

Hey all, thought we could start a thread to put in reviews and reccomendations for dealerships and sales people we have used in the Alberta area.

Can be short one-liners or a full blow review, whatever you have time and inclination for.

I'm currently looking for a Used salesperson in the southern half of the province, so if anyone has reccomendations for that, I would greatly appreciate it.

The best thing I find is to go look around for what you want then try a few different dealers. I recommend looking at the autotrader app then you can look at the dealerships from there. I also like to deal with Dunlop Ford over Coledge Ford.(in Lethbridge)

Well, I haven't sealed the deal yet, but I have a couple salesguys at two different dealers working hard for me right now. I was planning on buying a 2012 used with arounf 50,000 kms, but they may be abel to talk me into a brand new truck. Some of the incentives on new are unreal.

Now I am curious as to what model and how much they are asking? And what dealers you are dealing with. As I am thinking of upgrading to a 2015 f150 but I might go to the super duty for the towing ability.

I can say that for 2014 F150 Supercrew XLT XTR, a guy should have not too much problem getting one for $36k+tax. Those trucks sticker at nearly $50k.
A nicely equipped Fx4 should be under $40k.
Once I have a deal, I will be happy to reveal it privately to anyone who is interested. I am working three different dealerships, in three cities, and through a couple of different connections. It's pretty complicated.

Send me the info and maybe I will tell you about when I go and get mine. And I would like to know the dealers that you are dealing with.

Well I have decided to just keep my truck(I love it anyways) and just fix it up and add some personal touches to it. It is time for a bigger house with a garage so I can do some of these upgrades and store my crap. Just keep me posted as to what happens for you. Pm me if you must.

I still haven't pulled the trigger on a truck. Been shopping new and used. With any luck I will have a deal handled sometime next week.

I picked up my Used truck today. It wasn't from a dealership, so I can't help with that. But I can say for sure that Josh Bernhard at Cam Clark Ford in Olds is a great guy to deal with. He had some amazing deals worked out for me on brand new trucks. Seemed to be a couple thousand cheaper through him than through the dealers I was working with in Calgary and Edmonton. One of those was giving me a "fleet deal" through a connection I have, and it still wasn't as good as Josh could do for me.

Anyone who's considering a Ford should talk to Josh, I can even give you a referral that is worth $750 off your truck.

I had some good discussions with James MacDonald at Universal Ford in Calgary. He didn't have what I wanted in stock, so I didn't get too far with him, but he seemed pretty good to deal with.

Just had a great experience with Chris Dixon at Advantage Ford here in Calgary. Drove away with a 2011 F150 XTR with 47000kms on it for a great price, and they really helped me out with my other truck when another Ford dealership wouldn't.

Always good to hear of a happy customer. Trade-in values are funny, some dealers seem to have a lot more "wiggle-room" than others. I don't know why ther is such a big difference.
Of course, some just screw you over on the new vehicle price, but hopefully that's not that common.

That XTR package is pretty sweet. it's got all the little upgrades you want, and nothing too fancy to put the trucks out of the reasonable price range. That's what I drive and I'm very happy with it.

I also have the XTR package on my 08 XLT screw and it is worth every penny

Only thing mine doesn't have is the rearview camera. Starting in 2013 I think it was a part of every XTR package, but in 2012, it was an add-on, and mine doesn't have it. Would be handy for hooking up the trailer, but I manage with very little crying.

Mine came with the backup camera and it is so helpful with hooking up to the trailer. The only bad thing is that it is in the rearview mirror

So just wondering if anyone is buying a new vehicle now that the employee pricing is going on? I am still waiting until next year to buy mine!
