Hi everyone, I went to my dealer today and they told in regards to ordering a 2022 F250 Tremor that there was no wiggle room due to demand..which is hard to believe. I would never buy a vehicle without at least some discount. My thoughts are to go thru costco or find a way to get X plan pricing. Anyone have any experiences or pricing by going through costco?
 
For my 2020 (ordered 10/1/2019) I had X Plan pricing through work, and compared it to Costco. So close to the same it really didn't matter which one I used.

I did X-Plan on my 21 order with the Mustang club. I recently received an email from Mustang Club that you have to be a member for 90 days prior to being eligible to receive X-plan PIN - This is new
 
I'll also add that I have no idea if a 22' Super Duty is eligible for X-Plan at this time.

I just logged into the x-plan site and 22' Super Duties are not listed.
 
They are essentially the same but some dealers don't like Costco in low demand times I know a lot of Toyota dealers dropped them so I'd imagine X-plan would be more widely used. Just simply explain that you are ordering a truck and you do not care who places the order as long as its placed right and the price is at invoice or X-plan. You will go to the next dealer if the one your at doesn't want to do it.

Could you share this?

The wording in the past has been very confusing so would be good to see how they cleaned it up.
 
From the member benefits tab of the Mustang Club website:

  • Digital and Standard Members receive members-only discounts, including Ford X-Plan pricing on new Ford vehicles. X-Plan pricing is not available on all models. Check with your preferred dealer for X-Plan discounts. You must be a member of MCA for a minimum of 90 days before you can use X-Plan.
 
Ah, cool. And I see the sentence right before that is Ford modified the plan for MCA. So they've finally clarified it.

I guess good thing right now is there's currently no way you could order a truck and get it before the 90 day requirement is met.
 
My dealer wanted my PIN ahead of time. I don't think you need to provide it at the time of order but he wanted it to lock in the price; and you can always change to what ever incentives are available at the time of purchase. This might be a dealer thing.
 
Even though Ford asks for 90 days they are not strict. I was only about 3 weeks into my X-Plan and they accepted it for a Tremor off the lot. Also the base MCA Associate subscription ($25) no longer works and you need the Digital ($35) at least. My dealer asked for my X-Plan Pin but not my membership number or card. Im assuming that will vary by the dealer.

I too had trouble finding a dealership willing to honor X-plan. Most I called in CA said MSRP or even with added markup due to the demand.

To generate an x-plan PIN you can go to https://www.fordpartner.com/partnerweb/login.do and type MC405 as the partner code.

I asked if they wanted my number and my dealer told me to wait till the truck came in that if there new incentives or discounts I would get those on top of xplan. X plan is basic calculation based of invoice price...I dont see how it makes a difference when you give them your pin.

Can't wait to see there face when I pull out my 3k PCO....
 
For what its worth, this change was made sometime in March (I cant find the email I received notifying me of the change). Not sure if they are going to be more strict now. I believe it is up to the dealer to collect your proof of eligibility.

I am not sure I was lucky because I signed up for MCA last week of Feb, but was able to mid-March after the 90 days notice came out. I was worried I would have had to wait for a while before buying.
 
This was last August, but I got my pricing via the Costco program, can't stand the dealer that they use in my area, took the printout to my regular dealer and they matched it without a problem. It was about $5k off MSRP.

I saw x-plan price on an order I was considering Saturday. However I can't use the PCO so swapping a 20 for a 22 is unlikely to happen. You can get it!
 
Tri-County Ford in LaGrange, KY honored the x-plan. Scott Heffernan is a straight shooter, I’m buying an Expedition for the wife from him in the next week or two. X-plan is a couple hundred bucks cheaper than Costco. And not all dealers are certified to do the Costco deal.
 
I tried Costco and was referred to a dealership by my office. They called, I told them what I was looking for and told them I would do Costco or X-Plan; whatever would work best. They sent me a build sheet for a F-350 with errors. I sent corrections and requested a price quote. I even called. Crickets.

Move forward 5 months and I went to a Bronco reveal event at that dealer and parked my Velocity Blue Tremor right in front of the show room. It still has its CA paper plates on it. I walked in and asked where the Bronco event was and there was the Internet Manager I was talking to for the Tremor along with some other dealer people.

She commented nice Tremor blah blah blah, noticed it was new, and said I should have bought it from them. I told her I tried but she sent me bad information, and would not do a decent deal, so I got it for X-Plan somewhere else. I said bye and walked out to the Bronco event. On my way I passed by a Ranger Tremor in the show room and it was marked up $3,500.00.

I think after everything I went through the tough part is finding a good dealer that will honor either X-Plan or some other pricing plan. Several I spoke with just won't. Others mentioned similar sentiment above.
