Bronco Badlands
As of October 2020, Ford has stated the Bronco will not be eligible for X-Plan pricing on the MY21 Bronco, more details here:
2021 Bronco NOT Eligible For X-Plan (Official Document Confirmation) [Update: Confirmed by Ford]

Also as of October 2020, Ford has stated the Wildtrack and First Edition will have their MSRP reduced $1,895 due to late availability of the Black Painted Modular Hardtop, more details here:

Announcement: MIC Hardtop Option Only Initially. Black Painted Modular Hardtop Will Be Late Availability

This is a spreadsheet I made to compare X-Plan pricing at a local dealer to pricing at a dealer offering $1,000 below Invoice (such as that offered by Granger Ford, Stephens Ford, Texas Buyers Group, etc.) or $2,000 below MSRP (such as that offered by Laura Ford). For the $2,000 below MSRP example, the values in red show where they are more expensive then the $1,000 below Invoice example, only the Base and Big Bend models are less expensive.

Make sure you consider the total cost of the offers, the dealers that are some distance from you will require additional shipping or travel costs to get your Bronco. If the distance dealer arranges to have Ford deliver your Bronco to your nearest local dealer you will have to pay that local dealer additional fees for receiving, inspecting and delivering it to you, called PDI (Pre-Delivery Inspection), this could be $500 - $1,000. Of course if you plan to travel to that distant dealer and drive your new Bronco home you will not have all of these costs but long drives at a constant speed is not good for a new engine. There are many examples of the proper engine break-in procedure on the internet, here is one example:
https://www.theenginebuilders.com/break-in-procedure

Looking at Dealer Holdback, with the original 2% dealer holdback column there was not enough dealer profit to cover a $1,000 below invoice offer. When increased to a 3% dealer holdback based on new information from @Ghostrider454 & @JeffBrunini you can see the $1,000 below invoice offer becomes profitable to the dealer. The 3% dealer holdback includes 2% of MSRP plus 1% of MSRP based on performance goals. Further, dealers will be looking for upsells, financing or bonuses from Ford for additional profits.

TRIM LEVELS: There are multiple Trim Levels available for each Bronco sub-model, for example, there are four Badlands 4-door Trim Levels, E5D-331A, E5D-332A, E5D-333A and E5D-334A, see second spreadsheet below.

OTHER COSTS: This spreadsheet covers X-Plan, MSRP, Invoice and Dealer Fees. In the Granger Ford and Laura Ford examples the Dealer Fees include a $45 Temporary Transit Tag fee for out of state transport. There will be additional costs to your purchase including Bronco trim level, packages and options costs along with your home state mandated tax, title, registration and license fees.

DISCLAIMER: I am not a dealer, salesperson or have any affiliation with them or Ford. I'm an engineer who put this spreadsheet together for my own use, I hope you find it useful.

Bronco Trim Levels
MSPR+DD: This is the MSRP with the Delivery & Destination fee included. The first dollar figure is for the lowest cost Trim for that Model. When you see a dollar figure with a + sign after it, this means the cost of that Model Trim still has to be added, however these costs have not been leaked yet so take your best estimate for your own personal use. This information is part of another spreadsheet in a different thread, see this link for additional Trim Level details:

Based off the Ford Bronco Price List dated 7/13/2020 at this thread:
2021 BRONCO PRICE LIST – MSRP & Dealer Invoice Pricing
*WT & FE FULL MSRP - for early WT & FE orders, without Black Painted Modular Hardtop subtract $1,895 from MSRP and $1,781 from Invoice.

From what I understand Ford still has not officially said if X-Plan will apply to the Bronco. But what we do know is it normally for production volume models, like the Bronco, but limited production models, like the Raptor and GT350 are ineligible, so it is possible the First Edition will not be eligible either since it is a limited production model.

I'm flying there ($165) and driving back same day. Little bit of gas (maybe $100-$150?) and I'm all up for saving that $1000 under invoice. The drive will be *fun*!
I take part of this back... I wonder if this COVID19 crap will still be going on. I've got two friends with it and it's nasty as hell. Might be worth losing $800-$900 to avoid the risk of a plane ride.

Sorry, what is the x plan?
It is a program by Ford for "Partner Companies" to receive a fixed discount and fees off of most Ford models, three ways to qualify:

If you work for a "Partner Company", check list here:
https://www.oxmoorflm.com/ford-a-x-z-plans/x-plan-partner-companies/
If you do, log into your companies HR/Employee Benefits website and look for the Ford Partner code number, it may be listed under something like Discounts or Perks.

Login:
https://www.fordpartner.com/partnerweb/login.do
Request your "Pin Number" that you need to give to the dealer for the discount, it is good for one year.
Information:
https://www.fordpartner.com/partnerweb/jsp/howitworks/fordpartner_rules.htm

The second method is to join The Mustang Club of America (MCA). Pay $25 membership, wait 60 days to qualify (some say less).
https://mustang.org/about/benefits/

The third method is to own 100 shares of Ford Stock, hold them a minimum of 6 months and then get Pin Number, see this post:
https://www.bronco6g.com/forum/threads/x-plan-pricing-usage.1933/page-2#post-61815
This thread has more information for discussion of the X-Plan:
X-Plan Pricing & Usage
Here are some posts with good information on X-Plan:

This is a spreadsheet I put together originally to compare X-Plan pricing at a local dealer to pricing at a dealer offering $1,000 below Invoice (such as that offered by Granger Ford). I've also added the comparison of the $1,000 discount from Invoice to the $2,000 discount from MSRP (such as that offered by Laura Ford). Note in this second comparison some of the values in red show this discount approach is actually more expensive than the dealers offering the discount from Invoice, only the Base and Big Bend models are less expensive. This update also is expanded to include all models and additional information such as the spread between MSRP & Invoice, the 2% Dealer Holdback, along with Destination & Delivery fees.

As you review the data different things will jump out to each person. One thing I saw is the dealers that are some distance from you will require additional shipping costs to ship your Bronco to you or if they arrange to have it delivered to your local dealer you will have to pay that local dealer additional fees for receiving it and doing the PDI (Pre-Delivery Inspection). Of course if you plan to travel to that distant dealer and drive your new Bronco home you will not have all of these costs but you do want to be cautious on the length of travel and the impact this will have on new engine break-in.

Looking at the 2% Dealer Holdback, you can see it may not cover the offer of $1,000 below invoice. Dealers have to make up this loss somewhere so maybe they will be looking for upsells, financing or volume bonuses from Ford. I'm not familiar with how the Ford dealer bonus program works so perhaps we will have some more knowledgeable people join in on the conversation that can provide additional insight.

DISCLAIMER: I am not a dealer, salesperson or have any affiliation with them or Ford. I'm an engineer who put this spreadsheet together for my own use, I hope you find it useful.
