    I pre-ordered but have not signed and gave the deposit yet. I feel that there is more wiggle room on the price. Can any of you experts offer any advice as to how to get rebates, incentives, or any sort of discounts on ordered vehicles because this seems steep.
    All I really require is 4x4 and crew cab.

    CONGRATS! First member I've heard who's placed an order. So they weren't willing to go lower than MSRP at all?

    Correct. :(. They did mention that if ANY incentives or rebates become available before I take delivery in Dec/Jan, then they will take it off of the price.

    That's basically how it played out when I ordered my 2015 Mustang. Incentives and rebates were available shortly before it arrived. It wasn't exactly a lot of savings. Expect them to do the same for the Ranger for at least a year. For me personally, the discounts need to be around the same as the F-150 for me to choose the Ranger over the F150. I almost purchased a 4x4 F150 a few months ago for around 33K.

    The prices have scared me away for now. If was my primary vehicle I would probably be more interested. My paid off Tacoma doesn't look so bad when I see the prices of all of these new trucks.

    Yeah I totally agree with you, it was the reason why I went with my 2014 Silverado over the Colorado. That being said, this is my wifes truck, she had a black, 2wd, manual ranger for 10 years all through high school and college and it finally rusted in half so she has been waiting for this new Ranger for years. :)

    My first vehicle was a Ranger. Loved that truck. Never owned a full-size. If I didn't already have two car payments I'd probably be right there with you placing an order. I want one to replace my aging Tacoma. I need a vehicle that can be flat towed behind my RV. If we find out the Ranger is capable I will be getting one at some point.

    Congrats!

    I doubt we're going to see any incentives or rebates for a while. The Ranger will be a hotseller so there's no need for Ford to discount it especially at the beginning of its sales. Eventually we'll see incentives/rebates like is available for the F-150.

    As for Ford's discount programs (Ford A, Z, X, D Plans), those are only available to Ford employees and their friends/family

    How does one go about getting on those discount programs? What amount of savings are we talking about (off MSRP)???

    Congrats @Airwelldone! Are you worried about specs (when they are released) at all?

    I'll be ordering mine shortly as well! I work at a dealership and D plan helps quite a bit. But as others said, no rebates whatsoever for the time being.

    Here's a breakdown of Ford's discount programs.

    A-Plan
    For Ford employees. Best possible deal out of all of Ford's discounted Plans.
    Pricing = Invoice - Holdback - Advertising Fee + $275 program fee

    Z-Plan
    For Ford retirees.
    Pricing = Same as A-Plan

    X-Plan
    For friends, family, and groups with special affiliations with Ford.
    The "Ford Partner Recognition X-Plan" is a supplier discount that members of certain companies that do business with Ford.
    The "Friends & Neighbors X-Plan" is for employees and retirees to sponsor purchases by family and individuals outside their family.
    Pricing = Invoice - 0.4% + $275 program fee

    D-Plan
    For dealer employees and family members.
    Pricing = A-Plan + $100

    Thanks! and I'm not too worried about specs, it should have class leading hp and very close to class leading tq. My 20ft travel trailer only weighs 4100lbs so it shouldn't have an issue towing it. On another note, I'm excited to see what some people do tuning it. I have a '17 Fiesta ST and a 17' Fusion Sport (12 second Muscle car beating sleeper), both are tuned and it's a total night and day difference over how they ran stock, but since it's the wifes, I doubt I'll be tuning it anytime soon. :(

    What's nice is the aftermarket is already so developed for the 2.3L ecoboost. There are Stage 3 packages easily adding 80-90hp. You could secretly take the truck somewhere for a quick tune when the weather turns cold so you can use the colder air as an explanation for why the truck magically feels much faster ;)

    Yeah 80-90hp is modest, even at the wheels. I had my Fusion dynoed stock at 321ftlbs. Just a 93 tune and it put down 402 ft lbs. That's on an awd dyno, so major drivetrain loss too.

    How much deposit would dealers require to order a 2019 Ranger now?

    Mine asked me for $1,000. It obviously goes towards the final price, which could go lower, but not higher before I take delivery (depending on potential rebates and/or incentives).

    Each dealer is going to be different with the deposit that they require or ask for. Sometimes it's negotiable, usually it's not. Anywhere from $500-$1000 is what I would expect most dealers to ask for. I'll share my experience too once I place an order.
