Hello fellow Coloradans (and nearby neighbors). A small group of us have been sharing notes on our progress working with our local Ford dealerships and in short, we all came to the same conclusion. Up to now, not a single CO dealership has been very transparent or are willing to be competitive with a well-known Ford dealer and member here, @Granger Ford. Albert has been nothing short of fabulous in this forum representing Granger Ford in Granger, IA (approximately 700 miles from Denver area) and for our small group, we decided to change our reservation to Granger and are inviting others to join us. For our small group, it came down to the combination of transparency and excellent pricing… and with that we decided to work with Granger.

So here are the details followed by links with more details. Granger is offering the following pricing for out of state buyers:

Invoice -$1,300 if you have X-Plan (if not, you can sign up for $25 here)
+$100 DOC
+$45 Transit tag
+$425 Group Shipping (handled by Granger) - this is a discounted shipping rate so there are a couple of caveats in this estimate:
1) this estimate could increase if fuel prices spike by delivery next year​
2) requires a full load of six vehicles (may have to wait until there are six vehicles ready to ship)​
3) add $250-300 for one-off shipping​
@North7 put an excellent spreadsheet together HERE but for a basic example if the invoice price (not MSRP) comes to $50,000:
  • Standard X-Plan: $50,000 x .996 = $49,800 + $275 admin fee +$100 DOC fee = $50,175
  • Granger offer: $50,000 - $1,300 + $45 transit fee +$100 DOC fee = $48,845
  • Difference of $1,330
Some dealers may require additional dealer installed accessories (i.e. paint protection, undercoat, car alarm, their own financing terms, etc.) so just because they say they will honor the X-Plan, does not mean that they cannot add things and force you to pay for them – make sure you get it in writing that they will not require anything in addition to factory. From what I've read, @Granger Ford will not be requiring add-ons like this.

One other thing to remember is group shipping to Denver, CO is an estimated $425 (or more if one-off shipping). Obviously, the extra cost for going to Granger and bringing the Bronco back on your own will vary as well. A number of folks are approaching this like a mini-vacation and adventure by going to Granger to get their Bronco.

Lastly, the amount above does not include the destination fee (roughly $1,500) and sales and use taxes (which are based on where you live – not where you buy).

EDIT #4 - added more details about X-Plan, Invoice, etc

I just changed my reservation to Granger!

The Ford rep I spoke with during the change process said he "knew that dealer well" and that there were lots of people switching to Granger.

Now with the piece of mind that I can actually trust my dealer, I can relax, enjoy and just get ready for B&P and placing the actual order in Dec. It's like a weight has been lifted off my shoulders.

I’m already with Granger, hmm. I have to decide what to do because I have a trade in as well.
I'll buy your car for bluebook if you throw in an Xbox Series X :) /s

Folks, check your junk folders, Albert's initial email to me went there. We've already corresponded via PM and email multiple times and I had only heard from my previous dealer 1x since July.

I also did the same just now! The rep told me his previous call was a change to Granger. Maybe that was you, haha.

Huge weight off now. Cheers!

The only thing I see on the original post that needs added:

DOC fee is only $100 with X plan..
Even better, thanks! Edited post.

You should see my reservation anytime now. ;)
