I wonder how much MCA has made off of memberships, and now doesn’t even have to supply x plan pins lol

I am still in but I am loosing my excitement to own a first year 6GBronco. I learned to drive in a Ford, the first vehicle that I purchased was a Ford, and I currently own a 66 Bronco and a Raptor. I could easily wait to buy a Bronco in a year or two, at that time Ford may or may not get my money if I buy used. I just feel Ford is yanking my chain.

The Granger deal of the Texas Group deal are so much better than X-plan, that I wasn't planning on using it anyway. The extra .5% discount is so small that you'd have to spend $55K to offset the $275 fee for using the X-plan. I'm not going to get into the 50's with my Bronco.

I love this forum and is die-hard Bronco fanatics! Every time any tidbit of new info drops, everyone freaks out! I just relax, look at my 1994 bronco in the driveway, imagine my 2022 bronco sitting next to it, and then queue up the John Bronco documentary on Hulu. While I watch that and laugh, i also relax, and realize that after a 25ish year break, the Bronco is back. If your upset, wait for a used one, or wait and see what jeep does. Either way, in the not so long run, we all win. Give Ford a slight break. Their stock isn't too hot right now, they're dealing with covid, and they've basically given us everything we've wanted thus far, besides a few very vocal, and emotional exceptions. In less than a year we'll be seeing each other on the trails in our own basesquatchFEBDwhatever broncos, dick measuring about who's mods are coolest!

I voted yes but it's not a negative yes. Everything Ford does causes me to re-evaluate this. Everything they do has the possibility to make this better for me or worse for me so whenever something new comes out surrounding the Bronco I re-evaluate things, make a mental note of where I'm at with it all.

Offering or not offering X-plan doesn't directly effect me but it does help show me who Ford values. I don't begrudge a company making money but people are down economically and most folks that know about X-plan seem to be the more diehard fans. Taking this away from them for the Bronco, what'll be a regular production vehicle, it doesn't sit quite right with me.

I don’t know so I won’t vote to skew the results. I do know that Ford is making me more nervous about buying new platform vehicle. At least my reservation is a MY22 so maybe I’m good haha.
So how do you know your model year? Based on reservation number? Is there a calculator for this somewhere? They don't even have actual orders yet, so i'm not sure how this could be known.

Ford released an official statement regarding this yesterday. Reservations made on or after September 18th will be MY2022.

You kind of just did. The question is will it make you think twice. Not will you cancel. It’s good for Ford to know their decisions could cost sales.

Directly? Absolutely not, I'm reserved at SAC so that doesn't change a thing. Indirectly, 100% yes. Their reasoning behind removing it was the demand, if that means they're jacking up prices on everything in B&P than that may mean I'm out. Best case, I'll still barebones it with no accessories or options and get a WT for the 2.7/sas, but at the end of the day that's not really what I wanted. That TRX looking pretty dope these days...

100%, and it adds to the list. Here's my list

-General distrust; flip-flopping (i dont need to get long winded here, as its been discussed 1000 times)
-No x plan = almost $2k lost on a loaded OBX
-This car will likely lease horribly...so I have to buy a brand new rushed model year 1....at MSRP
-No rear console vents (this will be my family hauler with toddlers/infants)
-Poor 4 door cargo area packaging. Seems to be a full foot shallower than my outback. We asked how many times for exact dimensions, but they ducked every time.
-No white top, difficulty getting body matched top (dual top only)
-No test drives or hands-on reviews at select regional dealers
-No tire upgrade. We need to spend $1,500 on new tires and sell basically brand new tires for cents on the dollar, when it would cost ford almost nothing to offer us tire options. This is incredibly annoying considering they could make more money and have a happy customer in the process.
-Lastly, i need a dedicated bulletpoint for Mike Levine. I hate the fact that I need to hit up Mike Levine on tweeter to ATTEMPT get some level of clarity. And his cryptic messages. I generally just do like how he is handling this, at all.

I am excluding the unknowns on delivery, dealer allocations etc, just because i cant totally fault them on trying to work through all of these reservations during COVID. But the above in my opinion, is easily avoidable.

I voted yes to signify that absent the deals at Granger/Stephens, I would not be in the market for a Bronco during the initial frenzy. I remember when the 2005 Mustang came out and people were paying stupid amounts of ADM. In a few months, those cars were available on the lot for below MSRP. As someone else posted, this decision seems to hurt the honest dealers and that just tends to cause me to lose respect for Ford. I’ll still likely take my reservation at one of the dealers that really deserves our business.
