Hypothesis: Ford dumped Limited’s to fleet sales

Loads of 18 / 19 Taurus Limited for sale with Enterprise & Hertz Car Sales. Looks like Ford dumped these in fleet sales the past few years. 8)

Not unsurprising: $40K+ without incentives/ $32K+ with incentives is a lot of dough. :lol:

I love that when ford made the car they said they won't really sell it to rentals because that tarnishes the image. So much for that!

The other trick that dealers played is that they bought their remaining inventory and are now selling these are pre-owned or CPO regardless of trim level.

They likely were able to cash in on the final incentives and hold back to limit their losses. You cannot blame a dealership for that.
