Everything in Canada is marked up, a few years ago when the Canadian dollar was on par and even exceeding the US dollar the price of a new vehicle could be anywhere from 5-15k more in Canada. A lot of people started running down south of the border to buy their vehicles because even after your done changing the speedometer over, installing day time running lights etc. and jumping through the bureaucratic hoops it was far cheaper than than buying local. Then dealerships started complaining that everyone wasn't shopping local and claiming they couldn't honor warranty work because the vehicles were bought in the US etc. The Raptor according to ford.ca *starts* at 53,199. So before you've even started you have nearly 60k truck by the time your done with taxes and such. Welcome to Canada
