Ford pricing changes

As your trusted fleet management partner, we wanted to inform you of a recent update we received from Ford.

In the past, Ford has offered a 1.5% credit to factory invoices as part of its "Floor Plan Assistance Program" for Ford internal combustion engine ("ICE") vehicles. As part of its new strategy and repositioning in the marketplace, Ford has unfortunately modified its program and reduced pricing incentives on ICE vehicles - effective April 1, 2022. It is our understanding that Ford's pricing policy change is impacting all fleet management companies and dealers.

Moving forward, please expect the following:

At this time, this is the only vehicle manufacturer to take this path. Other OEMs are still honoring their fleet credits and we continue sharing those benefits with you. We will be glad to work with you to find viable alternative vehicles from OEMs who are still offering such credits.

We will continue to stay closely connected to our OEM partners and keep you updated on any further changes.

Should you have any questions regarding the Ford incentive reductions, please reach out to your Customer Success representative.

This year continues to bring challenging market conditions, but our teams are ready to share our expertise, analysis, and best practices to help you navigate ordering and extended order-to-delivery timelines.

New model ordering

Prepare for these order banks opening soon - order as early as possible and be flexible.

Vehicle ETAs

The ongoing supply chain shortage continues to impact vehicle manufacturer timelines and we’re seeing an increase in order-to-delivery timelines across most manufacturers.

We will keep your drivers informed on order-to-delivery timelines via monthly emails. Please remind drivers to be on the lookout for this notification in their inboxes.

Manufacturer News

We are continuing to see order windows close more quickly than ever before. The recent order window for the GMC Sierra and the Chevrolet Silverado closed only 24 hours after opening.

Based on these trends, order banks that are open 3-4 weeks is now considered a long order window and we expect popular models to stay open less than a week.

Our number one recommendation is to stay closely connected with your Account Team to know when order banks are opening and be ready to place your orders the same day!

We are staying closely connected with our OEM partners and below are some of the updates to be aware of.
