Are You Eligible For The Ford X-Plan Pricing Discount?
Buying a new vehicle can be exciting and fun, but many buyers dread the confusing process of being sure they've gotten a fair price. With so much information about pricing on the internet, from so many different sources, it can be overwhelming to try to understand what is a fair price and what is not.
Fortunately, for employees of select partners of Ford Motor Company, this process is made simple through the Ford X-Plan partner recognition program. At Interstate Ford, we often find that employees of these select partner companies are not aware of the pricing benefits that they are entitled to based on their employment with a Ford Motor Company Partner.
We made this page for you to explore X-Plan pricing, eligibility and benefits.
What is Ford X-Plan?
X-Plan is new Ford vehicle pricing that is made available to select employees of preferred business partners of the Ford Motor Company. X-Plan pricing is by invitation only, and is valid towards the purchase or lease of most new Ford vehicles, both passenger and commercial.
Who qualifies for Ford X-Plan?
Generally, any employees, including full time, part-time and contract workers, spouses and retirees of eligible Partner companies (suppliers, fleets, etc.) and members of specific organizations or groups may qualify for X-Plan. Residents of the same household as qualified employee are also eligible with proper proof of residency. Participation in this program is by invitation only as determined by Ford Motor Company. Not all suppliers, fleets, etc. are eligible. To find out whether you qualify or not, read on.
What companies get X-Plan pricing?
Currently, there are nearly 3,400 partner companies that qualify for employee X-Plan pricing. This list is constantly changing based on new and dissolved relationships between Ford Motor Company and their partners. Because these relationships change frequently, there is no central list that you can access to check your eligibility, so it is best to contact us to check for you. At Interstate Ford, we often assist employees of the following companies (currently or previously eligible) with X-Plan pricing: Aramark, Chipotle, GFS. Humana, Kroger, LexisNexis, Lowes, Radio Shack, Reynolds & Reynolds, Sherwin Williams, WalMart, and many other large local and regional employers.
If you aren't sure whether your company qualifies, your HR benefits coordinator may also have some information on this program. But, you can always give us a call, or complete the form to the right and we'll confirm for you.
How much is X-Plan going to save me on a new vehicle purchase?
X-Plan savings vary from vehicle to vehicle, however they generally remain constant as a percentage of the vehicle cost. To help illustrate this point, take a look at the example below. The image that shows the dealer invoice for a Ford F-150. Because X-Plan buyers qualify for all rebates available to the general public in addition to their X-Plan pricing, we also show a
net final price for this truck after applying X-Plan price and all rebates and discounts that were available when this example was created. As you can see from the example, the X Plan price is just a little above dealer invoice. With the application of rebates, this particular example saved over $10,700 for a potential X-Plan buyer and only $96 and some change over dealer invoice. To be transparent, due to the high level of rebates and the discount package on the MSRP, this is one of the better savings available through X-Plan. However, on average, X-Plan buyers will receive significant savings from MSRP.
How do I receive X-Plan Pricing?
To take advantage of the program, you will need an X-Plan personal identification number (PIN). Don't worry though, we don't require you to have this when shopping. However, you will need this at the time of delivery. This can often be obtained by asking your HR Benefits coordinator for your company's X-Plan Partner Code. We can even help you find it here. Once you have the partner code, your Interstate X-Plan specialist can help you generate your X-Plan PIN. You may qualify for up to two pins per calendar year, with each PIN expiring within 12 months of being issued.
Once you arrive at the dealership, there are no shell games, as the X-Plan price is clearly marked on the invoice from the manufacturer (see above example). After informing your dealer of X-Plan eligibility, ask to see the invoice to verify your pricing. If you want to explore pricing before arriving at the dealership, you can also input your partner code to this website to shop X-Plan vehicles.
