The Ford Fleet Program for 2022 was suspended by the Ford Company for this year for all associations across the nation due to lack of inventory at dealerships. Their hope is to be able to offer NRWA’s small systems’ membership the discounts on the 2023 models next year. Until that time, the fleet program has a $500 discount on 2022 vehicles that are purchased at the dealership.
