This is completely counter to what Ford has advised reservation holders, is this something that you came up with on your own, or your sales manager? Have you cleared it with Ford, that you can wholesale move reservation holders to the back of the line, or not even submit their order?
She's the finance manger at the dealership. I don't put a lot of trust in what she says, and I'm sure she's parroting what the sales manager has told her to say. But what they are saying is clearly counter to what Ford has said.
They can incentivize people from transferring their reservation...
You can still switch your order to Leonard Town, and order through them, and your Bronco will still be delivered in roughly the time stamp of your reservation.
But what you won't get is their offered pricing after their deadline is up. You'll get whatever you are able to negotiate with them...
Appears, not even that. Just made a reservation, like we all did months ago.
@DaveM95 - your reservation doesn't lock you into anything. You can change your mind on which model, trim, color, options up until you actually place your order, and even after that, you can make changes until Ford...
Can't be. The sasquatch option on the Badlands is only $2,495.
If you don't get the squatch on the Badlands and add the upgraded wheels ($995) and the 33" GY Territory MT tires ($695), you've spent a total of $1,690.
To further upgrade to the Squatch it's only another $805.
I think you overestimate the number of people that fit into the category that you have described in your OP.
Your best bet to get an answer is to go those posts that you have seen, quote them and ask those posters directly.
With the optional wheels $995 and the 33" Goodyear Territory tires (on the black two door), you're only $800 less than the squatch package on the Badlands. Which would get you the wider wheels, the 35" tires, and the additional sasquatch lift.
Why does everyone else need to see things as you see them?
Why does one person want to lease their Bronco, while another wants to finance it over 84 months?
Why is one person willing to drive over a 1,000 miles to Iowa to get $1,000 off of dealer invoice, and another person is willing to pay...
The average transaction price for a new car in the US is about $38,000. Ford's average is $44,000. And that's transaction price, not MSRP. So, $50-60k isn't anywhere near luxury car status. And the average doesn't include luxury brands like Mercedes and BMW.
