if I order a Ranger, at what point does the negotiating take place? Is it during ordering, upon delivery, or some other period? I’ve never ordered a vehicle so completely unfamiliar with the process.

I believe you could do it either during ordering or at delivery, but I think you have a lot more leverage if you do it during ordering. If you backed out after it was delivered you would lose your security deposit (assuming they required one - some dealers apparently don't). I've always negotiated the price before I ordered.

I negotiated before placing my order. I sent a mass email with my exact build list out to all the dealerships within 50 miles. I asked them to send me their best Out The Door quote. A smaller family owned, out of the way, dealership earned my business. Good luck!

If you don’t want to negotiate get X Plan and then it’s a fixed price.

Otherwise agree on a price before ordering, that way there are no surprises come delivery. Lots of people buying Rangers from the lot are stuck paying MSRP, since they have no leverage.

And here's Rangerdanger own thread to do that...

Seeing as you haven’t ordered yet @Defender, you only need 60 days to get X plan. Build to arrival time will be 60-120 days probably.
Asked for a vin....my sales person will not answer an email...wait till I give them an evaluation
