Seems to be confusion in this arena so:

ADM - additional dealer markup. Placed over the MSRP to inflate profits and egos.

MSRP - manufacturers suggested retail price... retail or Window Sticker. Would sell them all day for this profit structure.

Invoice - below window sticker...is not true cost if car ... this is what floorplan and banks use as cost.

Cost - 2-3% behind invoice (holdback) that dealers use to defray he cost of floor planned (sitting in stock) inventory.

Options - on the vehicle that are configurable at order time will have an MSRP, invoice and cost

Accessories - added on after the vehicle us built. AKA dealer installed accessories.
Have an MSRP and cost no invoice and price structure is determined by the application. (Some items have more profit structured than others)​

BUILD & PRICE - online tool used by consumers to "make" their vehicle and change at a whim

Configurator - Dealer tool used to order the vehicle

X plan - is a partner pricing structure that is .4% below invoice.

A, D, and Z plans - If you work for Ford, a dealership employee or a retiree from Ford these plans will be available to you and you know the rules already.

Reservation system - this process is something new to Ford. Came out for the MachE, then to Bronco Sport now Bronco.

Allocation - is based on prior sales and dealerships were rewarded with extra vehicles because of being a volume store.

Reservations will eventually lead to allocations but after all reservations have been filled.

Please feel free to pm or add to thread and I will bring up here as necessary.

When are you expecting inventory delivery? I know the mannequins are coming in December. Does that mean earliest we could drive off the lot for our reservations would be at the earliest in January @Granger Ford ?

They should start showing up just after the mannequins...

Hi— I had a question on financing. I read in an article on car buzz that Ford might stop offering zero percent financing on a 48month loan for the Sport. Indeed, that option has been available on the website to estimate your monthly cost. Here’s my question. Since you can’t actually buy and finance the sale until delivery, what was the point of offering a zero percent option initially? Everything is subject to whatever rebates/incentives are offered at delivery, correct?
Here’s the article:

They are set to expire the same day as all of the rest of the apr rates for the Fords...

That does not mean that they will not extend it...

We will get new rebates on October 1st...

That article is click-bait...makes people aggravated and starts conversation...

Exactly the reason I am not in all of the conversations on the Forums unless I see complete falsehoods being bandied about...
