Incentives amount will change depending on your location, so I would not count on those to be the same everywhere. (and the amounts will probably change again before delivery anyway). Focus on the X Plan price.
The prices listed do not include destination/delivery, etc.

Here the Dearborn example:

The NET Plan Price isn't calculating correctly here. I clicked on the GT and it gave me the correct NET Plan price.

That's why I said to focus on the plan pricing (AXZ Plan). The listed incentive and net price amounts are irrelevant at this point in the process.

They accidentally added the $1100 Delivery Charge to everything in the last column, even though the footnote says it's excluded.

My area (San Francisco bay area) shows a $2500 credit for Ford Options. Granted, it can change.

I see that some of you see a different Ford Options credit of $1000.

I don't see the $300 AXZD customer cash that some of you see.

This is probably the same as what @FairfieldCT sees.

This isn't news in a way since we have known the plan for months, but it still hurts to see it's under $1,000 for a First Edition.

The incentives and net price are completely irrelevant at this point. They will change before you take delivery (they change every month). Focus on the X-Plan amounts, those won't change.

But if you're just curious...

For those of us less schooled in the ways for Ford buying (like me) would you please explain the incentives. I realize the current incentives expire long before we'll get our MMEs. But let's just assume the same $1,000 cash incentive exists at that time.

X-Plan Price:
Supposedly this was to be (-2% + $275). For my Grabber Blue First Edition the price is $59,300 and 2% of that is 1186. I calculate $59,300 - 1186 + 275 = 58,389. That agrees with the X-plan price above.

Incentives:
I see in the fine print:
2 Purchase incentives do not include Ford Credit Bonus Cash. Ford Credit Bonus cash requires Ford Credit financing or lease contract. Not all buyers will qualify. See dealer for residency restrictions, qualifications and complete details.

When I click the little print icon to get the details,

mine also lists:
INCENTIVE DETAILS for Zip Code 20904
Ford Options Retail Bonus Cash (Program #13770)
Cash Incentive: $1,000
Offer Valid: 2020-06-25 - 2020-09-08
Disclaimer: Program #13770: $1,000.00 Ford Credit Bonus cash requires Ford Credit financing. Not all buyers will qualify. Take new retail delivery from dealer stock by 09/08/2020. See dealer for complete details.


So, (2) makes it seem like this incentive is not Ford Credit Bonus Cash. Does that mean if we could buy the MME today we get a $1,000 discount on top of X-plan pricing making the price $57,389?

Oddly, my screen that matches yours but for 20904 also lists Net Plan Price $58,489. Coincidentally, that's a difference of $1,100 but the fine print says
3 Net Plan price equals the Plan price less purchase incentives. Optional equipment, $1,100 destination/delivery, documentation fees, taxes, title, and license fees extra. Not all buyers will qualify for all incentives. See dealer for residency restrictions, qualifications, and complete details.

So, why the $1,100 difference?

Strangely, my detail sheet says Net X-Plan Price $57,389, not the $58,489 on the earlier screen.

Ford Credit Bonus cash:
Back to my detail page. It says:
Program #13770: $1,000.00 Ford Credit Bonus cash requires Ford Credit financing. Not all buyers will qualify. Take new retail delivery from dealer stock by 09/08/2020. See dealer for complete details.
Does this mean there is another $1,000 of Ford Credit Bonus Cash we can unlock by financing?

I've bought Fords many times. They have a variety of incentives they might offer. If you look at other current vehicles you can see some examples.

That $1000 offer appears to require you to finance via Ford Credit. Can't use your own credit source (credit union, bank, etc) If you cant qualify for Ford Credit you wouldn't get the deal.

Typically all incentives are stacked on top of AXZ Plans. Anytime ive bought a vehicle its a fairly seemless process. You might just need to ask the Finance Manager to check what's available and figure out your eligibility. They change these deals all the time.

The incentive seen above of 2500 or 1000 or 1300 etc is only if the car is purchased with ford financing - its not on top of the incentives shown but its an explanation of that incentive - no incentives if you buy cash - on the day of purchase there may be other incentives in play including perhaps something for an all cash offer which is not offered today

Except footnote #2 makes it sound the opposite. It says "Purchase incentives do not include Ford Credit Bonus Cash".

But they also got the footnote wrong about the Net Plan Price not including the $1100 Delivery Charge, so who knows, they may have screwed that up too.

Ford had a similar deal when I purchased one of my F-250's. I wasn't interested because it wasn't at 0% interest but either 0.9% or 1.9% so had interest costs.

Dealer told me to sign up for it, make 1 payment and than payoff the balance. Did that and collected the $1,000 bonus.

Typically (check as things are always subject to change) there should be no prepayment penalties on ford credit, so you can pay the loan in full at anytime and still get the incentive if you qualify for the credit, so even if you are lucky enough to be able to pay cash, or have a credit union / bank loan already lined up, always take advantage of the extra incentive if it is offered.

So a tip for the non ford buyers is to check before hand with ford credit that there is no prepayment penalty (there should not be) and then check to see what additional cash incentive there is for using ford credit and if there is one then just take it even if you get a rubbish interest rate then just pay of the loan the next day using your original planned payment method.

One thing to note is that finance managers may even mention this if you are going to purchase with cash /have your loan set up, and some may then tell you to pay the loan after 90 days, what those finance mangers are not telling you is that the dealer gets a bonus for purchases on ford credit but only if people don't pay the loan of before 90 days, so just pay it in full the next day..
