You can also get X-plan a few other ways. Membership in certain clubs (Mustang Club of America, for example) will get it for you.

X-Plan is also available to Ford stockholders, as long as they own 100 or more shares, and have owned at least 100 shares for at least 6 months prior to applying for their X-Plan PIN. This is probably the most expensive way to get into it, but if you're buying Ford stock anyway, just remember that X-Plan is one of the perks. Now if only Ford will reinstate the dividend...
only 100 shares? Geez, I was about to pony up for a couple thousand.

100 is all you need to qualify for X-Plan as a shareholder. If you believe in the company, buy as many shares as you can afford without wrecking the diversity of your portfolio.

Kind of need some specs (towing capacity) to be able to pick between a 2dr deposit or a 4dr deposit...
Go for broke & reserve Both....you're allowed 2; totally refundable. Supposedly you can change-up your order till December-something...but I'm kinda thinking of reserving 2 different colors myself

MY ONLY concern is the following: "Current Ford model and prior model year vehicles sold in the United States See your local dealer for vehicle eligibility."

Could they exclude a model? I have 50 shares right now and they are dirt cheap right now. ALMOST worth buying 50 more if I KNEW there would not be an exclusion.

As to be expected, the Mach-E order process shows us the normal games dealers will play.

"The Mach-E forum lit up with the news on Saturday with dozens of members sharing information about the order process. It looks pretty straightforward, though some dealers are adding hefty premiums to the MSRP. A handful showed adjusted dealer markups of $5,000. Like any hot new car, it literally pays to shop around since the MSRP is, after all, a suggested price."

https://www.macheforum.com/site/threads/order-site-is-up.928/

"FYI The original dealer who ADM'ed $6000 onto the MSRP reposted a new price on my reservation sheet down to $500 ADM."

"Called Ford Marketing gave them my particulars (old deal/new dealer) they confirmed and gave me a CAS reference number said up to 5 business days to be entered in to the Ford Pass system"
https://www.[banned site].com/threads/anyone-changed-dealers-for-their-reservation.1107/#post-8438

"I called 1-800-334-4375 line and was able to change my dealership. She confirmed my address, email, and order number. She said she would notify me when it was completed. She never said I was making a new reservation.
If you call, don’t respond to “press 1 for English” and then they give you “press 1 for Mach E info” option."

So, if you must buy early, if you must get a reservation, here is an interesting idea to try. The key here is you do not want to tip your hand to your preferred dealer thereby giving them the idea your an anxious buyer and end up having to pay sucker's tax (ADM).

Select two dealers you may want to do business with, say one 10 miles away (Choice #1) and one 20 miles away (Choice #2)

In the reservation system, select Choice #2 as a placeholder for your reservation.

Dealer Choice #2 will call you, when the time comes, see what you can negotiate.

Then, as time plays out and information becomes known, negotiate with your dealer Choice #1. When you email, call or go to the dealer Choice #1, you DO NOT tell them you have a reservation, you simply act like someone who is interested in the new Bronco. Then, play the "Buyer's Game" to see if you get the price you want, no ADM, etc. If you are successful in getting the price you want at dealer Choice #1 you then tell them, well I did place a reservation in the Ford system to learn more about it so I will call Ford and change my reservation to you.

Remember, even if you end up buying from Dealer #2, you can take your Bronco to the closer Dealer #1 for service.

Any other ideas or tips to add to this plan?

I've never seen anyone Less interested in where you bought a vehicle than the service department.

But I like your base idea....kinda like having 2 girlfriends :)

$100 is not enough. People who are half-way interested in one will put down the deposit, just because. Same thing happened with the Cybertruck. This in turn leads to people who actually want one not being able to reserve because it's been capped. And since MSRP will be announced later, Ford could increase it's target price because they think more folks are clamoring for one than they anticipated.

This Tesla page shows the Cybertruck reservation fee is also $100.

Tesla is still taking Cybertruck reservations so how is it capped?

The Cybertruck is a limited production model, the Bronco is not.

Who said that we aren't going to get pricing with a build and price? We are already 90 days delayed for the reveal due a shit show of reasons and the Sport will be in production in less then 60 days, since they already did pre-production builds right before COVID took off.

Ford isn't going to be stupid with pricing-they are going to be within reason of the Wrangler...the dealerships I'm not too sure of, but that all depends on the state of the economy this time next year.

Not going to pre order. Want to wait for plan pricing a year or so in.
