Forgive me if this is a stupid question (sure as hell ain’t my first, and I’ll guarantee it won’t be my last), but could there be a possibility that some dealerships may just decide to “take one for the team” (i.e., their customers) and go ahead and honor X-Plan pricing anyway? Giving up a little profit in return for cementing customer loyalty? I’d think that might be something for them to consider. But then, I’ve never worked for a dealership, so I have no idea of the inner-workings of price/profit structures. Just a thought...

With no X-plan pricing, does that make it easier to flip an FE to help fund the Badlands reservation I want to keep? Discuss . . .

Our local dealer. He was the Parts Manager.
As a dealership employee he was up for D plan. Start your info search there.
D plan was actually pretty good at $100 over AZ plan (FMC employee) price. How that applies to retirees and their families, I do not know.

As a long time FMC employee who has gotten A and X plan pins for no small number of relativies (A) and (X) friends, I think a lot of people are over estimating just how much X plan saves. You will barely notice it on your payment, one or two Starbucks a month.

Technically ... A/Z & X for Bronco is not available now for anyone. Even then, until Broncos are available for purchase, pins would not be able to be applied until delivery (best guess 6 months away). A lot could change by then for A/Z too. For now, no XPlan allows Ford to work though the details and maybe in the case of Ford Employees/Retirees could limit the number of XPlan pins for Bronco. I would expect Bronco to do well even if A/Z was not available for Employees/Retirees. It will be interesting to see how dealers lining up XPlan customers will work out something internally to keep those customers if the XPLan is limited or not available for any Bronco 2/4dr.

Now that’s a bit extreme.

Why would you say such a thing?

Does this X-Plan news change your mind about purchasing a new Bronco?

Do you have a reservation?

If so, you can get a refund so no worries.
Definitely considering a refund on my reservation.

The lack of X-plan pricing is just the latest in a string of frustration. other items include:
- lack of build & price
- lack of white tops
- showing us endless images of pre-production vehicles that contain colors and features that are likely not available

This has not been a pleasurable experience whatsoever.

Jeep...nope. Dunno why everyone is so bloody willing to go to a Wrangler with the infamous death wobble. No thanks.

Go to the jeep forum (you know which I'm talking about), look at the most popular threads last week...

First thread is a guy who's absolutely had it with his 2019 JLU. 2500 miles, death wobble 7 times. His wife doesn't even wanna drive it any more...

No thanks. Ford will see the backlash here...maybe they'll rethink their shit.
Wobble baby, wobble baby, wobble baby, wobble (yeah)
Get in there, yeah, yeah
Ey big girl make em' back it up, make em' back it up

I don't see how X-plan affects FE, since FE wasn't assumed to be Xplan eligible anyway

I hear you. Just refunded my reservation, now it's time to build my 1966 TJ6, it has a white top. Maybe explore the Bronco when the dust settles.

I got mine at the crash for $4.95. I am keeping it no matter how much ford pisses me off. Those sweet sweet dividends would be nice though

I'll say this again for the people in the back. Call your dealer. Work out YOUR deal. I'm straight with mine already dispute this news.
