-No Torsen would be a deal breaker for me.
-I would opt for no sunroof (very high chance of leaks, failures in the future).
-Would not get the unleashed again as I have it and it is not great, but really you aren't paying for it on a used vehicle.

-lookse to be leveled or lifted already.
-I kind of wish I had the under seat storage thing.
-21' is good as there aren't any deletes.
-Highly sought after color.
-If you are fine with those miles I say 51k is a good price.
-I'm not familiar with Gold Certified, or what it gets you, but would strongly consider getting the extended warranty from Granger.

I wanted the Torsen also. That said, I've never had one in the past, and made it this far. That said, I was looking into just having one installed myself if I feel I must have it.

I've had that sunroof if two of my last three F150's. I never had a problem with it leaking. Have you had issue or know of folks who have?

Yeah, I know the Unleashed is a joke. I plan to upgrade the system anyway.

Gold Certified adds, in addition to other things, another year and 12K miles to the bumper to bumper and adds another 2 years and 40K miles to the powertrain warranties.

In all honesty I don't do a LOT of 4 wheeling in my expensive truck (lol) and could get away with not having it but I feel it is one of those options that makes the Tremor a Tremor (that and the hi lock transfer case we get in the 402a version).

I have had a sunroof in previous vehicles, but not in an F150. My wife's cousin had the sunroof in his '20 lariat and it got stuck open and he had some other problems with it. I see lot's of posts from others with similar issues.

It's cool the warranty gets extended with the gold certified. So far on mine I've only had a leaky pinion seal on the rear diff that I had fixed but I am living with some transmission hard down shifts which makes me consider getting the extended warranty. The leather seats make me shudder, I hate them so much (so fragile).

Really? You don't like the leather. I had an '08 Sierra SLT (beautiful truck) with leather and I loved it.

You should have them look at that trans if it's under warranty. It may just need a reflash or update (or whatever the terminology is). A lot of times just a small adjustment like that straightens it right out.

I never had an issue with my sunroofs. Fact is I hardly ever used them but loved having it when I wanted to. But, it's under warranty, so...
 
Seems high. I paid $51,500 for my certified 2022 with 12,800 miles. No roof, but I have the Torsen.
 
Does it have the feature that so many of us 2023 American TREMOR owners desire which is the heated steering wheel and digital temp readout on the temperature knobs.

OTD? That's a great price. I've been searching for 6 months to a year. Everything I see is in the 60's or high 50's. I thought it was a great price.

It does, but I'm of the belief, and I think it's the general consensus, neither of those things are all that important.

I would agree but it’s sure nice to have especially since 2023 Canadian Tremor owners are getting the heated steering wheel installed for free and the American owners only received a $140.00 credit on the invoice.
 
I'm still curious about this '22 402A with 12,800 miles for $51,500. That's a great deal!!

I found a dealer who ordered a 23 Tremor, 402A , w/ 5.0 V8 on Dec. 4, 23. Built date was Dec. 23, finally made it to dealership Jan 30, 2024, and I picked it up Feb 9, 24. Got lucky and it included heated steering.

I hate you. 😂

I just think it weird that Canadian owners get it installed for free and US owners only get a credit.

At the very least, US owners should get a check for the total cost to have it installed less the $140.00 dollar credit.

Sounds fair to me.

Truck price without tax. It was the best deal I could find. Bought it on January 31. Sticker was just over $69k.
Didn't really want the blue, but couldn't pass up the deal.

I've been looking at these 402A Tremors for 6-8 months now (probably longer). I had offered them 53K, OTD - that's tax and everything. Their manager came back with $55,500. Still down from the 59+K OTD they originally quoted me.

Honestly, from what I've seen, 55.5K isn't a bad deal either. My 53K offer would be a great deal, which is pretty close to what you paid with tax, and if it has the same options, I think a great deal. The Leadfoot isn't my first choice either (silver all day), but I could live with it and it would probably grow on me. I do like it.

At this point, I'm being stubborn because I'm in Michigan and the truck is down south. Really I should be driving down to take a look. I'll be sorry when this one gets away.

BTW, I told them part of the deal would be they have to give me 28K for my '20 XLT 4X4 on trade.
 
Keep in mind, the BlueCruise (Active 2.0) will likely be expired at this point, so make sure the selling dealer/valuations are not pricing in a premium for that.

Without knowing the market, I'd think the price is a bit high as well; about what I would have expected for my loaded '22 - as a point of reference, I paid $62.5k (pre-tax) new in late 2022.

Won't be needing BlueCruise either way (and certainly won't be paying the fee for it).

I really have been looking at these trucks for many months now. Maybe even a year because I started looking at Platinum's a long while ago and realized for that much I can get a Tremor. They are mainly in the 58-65 range, and that's before fees and taxes.
 
And I'm not trying to talk myself into this here. I'm just looking for the opinion of folks who may know the market or have been shopping for these trucks as well. if they're seeing the same things I am, it's a good deal.

Take a look at Autotrader, at the 402A's. Certified or not. They are all in the upper 50's to mid 60's, or the wrong color, or the wrong options, or a Canadian truck, or they're in California...lol

If this thing was silver, I'd be putting a deposit down and heading down to check it out first thing in the morning...lol
