So before I ask let me put it out there that I went into ordering my vehicle knowing I would be paying a premium (I got a first edition) and have no problem paying full msrp. My question is, is there any haggling to be done over price because it's a pre-order and already reserved for me? Or is the dealer basically stuck at that price? I would like to know just so I'm not going in trying to get a little bit knocked off and them tell me no when I can know before. Only talking about the price of the vehicle of course, not extras and accessories and warranties ect.

It makes no difference that you have a reservation. You can still negotiate the price or other perks.

You can also apply an X Plan to the pricing. Could drop maybe $1,200 off the price.

Some dealers are at $1000 under invoice. Requires travel for most. I got lucky, my local dealer is doing invoice. You may want to try TOS for more details...

If you have more than one ford dealership in your area you can just ask the dealership whose going to give you the best deal then switch to that dealership, or you can just use it as leverage to say I know xxx dealership will do it for MSRP will you match it.
I thought about telling my dealership if they cut me a special deal I will let them keep my Bronco for a week or so to let folks look before I pick it up. No test drives but I want something in writing before I go that route.

I just moved my reservation to Serramonte Ford in the Bay Area because they're honoring X plan pricing... that's worth a couple hours of driving.

Yup, Kearny Mesa is offering X plan .. go with them!
I did, thank you so much! Just an FYI if anyone else is trying to use the X-plan I had to seriously tell them to check the fine print because the dealership was dead set on not having the x-plan for the sport. Its not available for the Bronco, it most definitely is for the Bronco Sport. (kind of irritated that I could hear the sales managers in their office trying to argue saying that I was wrong, then one of them decided to look it up and changed his tune, the actual sales associate and every other person was great though)

I,m excited about the Sport. I can,t wait till the dealers have demo models, and hopefully the Bronco will be available as well by May for comparison.
