The Costco Auto Program is basically around X-Plan pricing with pre-arranged deals. Used it in the past with mixed results. Their website, however, is nice for seeing all of the invoice pricing on the various options and you can compare that up against the "invoice" you're seeing from the dealer.
Many local volume dealers will sell at X-Plan, in my experience, even if you don't have a PIN, and its on the lot.
Rebates should be a non-issue "freebie" item you don't negotiate on as they don't impact the margins the dealer is receiving anyway as they are reimbursed through Ford to the dealer.
You should be able to find Invoice or at least X-Plan + rebates for what you're looking for with a little work. the Costco Auto Program just points you to participating dealers who are willing to sell accordingly.
