So I went to my local dealer who is pretty useless. I asked the sales rep if they had any Power Wagons or Rebels. His response was:
I have a 2500 power wagon, and a 1500 power wagon, the Rebel won't be released until the 2017 model year.
Hmmm so I asked him to show me the 1500 power wagon.
It was a Rebel. The first one I have actually seen (they don't seem to be very popular around here have only seen one on the road).
So I showed the sales rep where it said rebel and told him there was no such thing as a 1500 power wagon, and he started some song and dance.
This dealer is a few miles from my house, there is another maybe 10 or so more miles away, I think I will try that one.

Wow! How many of us could keep our jobs with that level of incompetence? You should always immediately ask for the truck specialist. Actually, when I bought mine, I did all the negotiating online until the very end and wrapped it up with a single phone call. Then I made the trip to the dealership. If I were you, I would definitely keep shopping for a new dealer.

That would have me fuming a bit. I cannot stand incompetence. Especially when he should be the subject matter expert on the product and here he has the customer explaining the differences. What a joke!

So I found a new dealer, and they discount MUCH more than the first dealer I found, I used to work near this dealer and I remember test driving a Jeep SRT8 there and they were quite knowledgeable and helpful. So I will drive 15 miles instead of 3. The dealer I purchased my 2000 off-roadster was great (6 miles away), but it was a Dodge/Ford/Mercury/Lincoln/Plymouth dealer and they sold off the Chrysler stuff during the Benz years and they only sell Ford now.

I'm curious, how far do all you people have to drive to get to your dealer ?

A lot of them keep their jobs. They work at the Ford dealers. Lol

There are so many dealers where I live, it's almost hard to choose, but I dealt in email with many of them until I worked a deal in Bonham TX, which is about 45 miles from me.

I drove 2 kms to the dealer.

I only negotiate things of this value (vehicles/houses) face to face. If the salesperson is as ignorant about their product as the OP's experience and then they try to cover it up with a bs dance I leave.
