With all the AXZD plan pricing discussion going on, there seems to be a lot of confusion about what the actual numbers should be and whether we can rely on dealerships for accurate calculation. Most of the confusion comes from the fact that we have had access to the ST's base vehicle and option invoice prices since before pre-orders started. Many got those numbers in their head and then show up at the dealership and get confronted with a different invoice price that includes "ADV ASSESSMENT" and "FUEL CHARGE" and "DEST AND DELIV" charges. Here's the deal: those are apparently a required part of what Ford terms "DEALER INVOICE". And it is "DEALER INVOICE" that is used to calculate the X plan pricing we're all so interested in. So here's how the math works:
Dealer Invoice = Base vehicle invoice price + option invoice prices (- option invoice discount price) + FUEL CHARGE + ADV ASSESSMENT + DEST AND DELIV
1. The FUEL CHARGE charge seems to be consistent as $47.16 according to all the ST VOCs I've seen.
2. The ADV ASSESSMENT charge appears to vary regionally, usually in the $400-$450 range.
3. DEST AND DELIV charges are fixed at $795.
4. It appears that if you are shown a VEHICLE ORDER CONFIRMATION (VOC) sheet by a dealer showing the DEALER INVOICE calculations and AXZD pricing plans, you can take those as being reliable.
If you're looking for more specific information on X plan pricing, please check the other threads specifically about them. But for reference, here is the math according to Ford:
X plan = DEALER INVOICE (- 0.4% * DEALER INVOICE) + ADMINISTRATIVE FEE (currently $275)
Also note that X plan fixes "doc fees" to a maximum of $100 according to Ford's X plan pricing agreement, which states:
