Reminder to the new folks around here:

When you finally get your invite, do not place your order until you know if you dealer will sell at MSRP. Once you place the order, you are at their mercy. However, you hold all the cards until then. If they won't sell at MSRP, call Ford and move your reservation to a dealer that will, then place your order.
When you place the order, the price is confirmed at that time. There's been all this talk about dealers jacking up pricing for pre-order holders, but I think that's mostly nonsense. There may have been 2 or 3 examples out of 200,000. Many that have actually placed real orders have come back and said that it was priced at MSRP.

The only mark ups will likely be on any that the dealer may have reserved for themselves, thus will become part of their inventory rather than being built for a specific customer. In this case, the dealer would be the customer and with those, they're free to do what they want with them. I would assume those would see Dealer Mark Ups. Sounds like most dealers are not trying to screw over actual pre-order customers. The dealers have to accept your order when you place it. Naturally, they have the option to not accept such orders if they don't want to sell them. Dealers have their way of getting their own for their own inventory. They'll do that, while also selling pre-orders vehicles.
