Sheehy Ford Springfield $1k. Also informed me that the production aren't installing the accessories even though the options are on build and price. Surprisingly, was told by the end of May when mine will be next.

Russell Barnett Ford in Tullahoma, TN. So far no deposit (they told me on the front end maybe $500...I wonder if they may ask for it when the order is pushed through in March).

No markup that I am aware of. I suppose they could spring it on me last minute, though they would have a fight on their hands if they did. They have been responsive and honest with me.

No deposit required for Riser Harness Ford in Searcy, AR. They offered $500 credit of dealer installed accessories upon delivery as well. #3 on the que. Will get build schedule and projected delivery in May from Ford.

Hertrich Ford of Pocomoke (Maryland) text me and asked for 10% down (would be around $6K) !!!! I text back the results of this survey, they have not responded. I refuse to give them that much unless they want to pay 10% return on holding my cash. I'll move the order elsewhere first...

Update : They lowered it to $1,000 but non refundable.

I originally was told $1,000 non-refundable deposit at Rodeo Ford in Arizona. After seeing some replies I am switching over to Earnhardt Ford. Some post say no extra deposit there, but they might have changed it later in the game. $500 refundable deposit. The guy was nice and knew his stuff. Selling at MSRP, no dealership add-ons that are not requested. Probably won't get it until 2022 but still pumped! Outer Banks with hard top and Sasquatch.

Don't buy their bullshit. It is refundable by law in Maryland. Find another dealer, unless you like dealing with crooks...

There should be absolutely no reason for a deposit on a vehicle as desirable as a Bronco. It doesn't matter what trim/color/options, if someone chooses not to pick up their Bronco, the dealership won't be sitting on something unsellable. If you are getting jacked around by a dealership for either the total price, or a deposit, move on to another dealership. You have a reservation which means Ford is going to sell you a Bronco and the dealership is NOT in the power position....don't let them try to make you believe that you need them...it's quite the opposite.

Stop putting up with auto dealership bullying...it is a buyer's market, in general, and with a Bronco reservation, you make the rules.

I changed dealerships during the “waiting period” and got my deposit back.

I placed my order with the new dealer and there was never any mention of additional deposit, but I did bring a bank check for a significant deposit and got a receipt for it.

I’m buying a new car. If it’s not the Bronco I ordered (who am I kidding, I’m buying that bad boy), it’ll be something else!

Paid $1000 non-refundable deposit
#42 out of 106 allocations
MSRP price, nothing over
Reservation date 7-14, order date 3/11/21
Should get in 2021, 4 Door Wildtrak
Awesome customer service!

Originally was at Griffith Ford in San Marcos, they were charging $5000 over MSRP & customer service was lacking!
