By any chance have any of you heard that Bickford Ford in Snohomish will have 2 Broncos for display in 3 weeks, a 2 door and 4 door , a buddy of mine has his reservation there and his salesmen told him this. Timing sounds about right for the pre-production coming out.
My reservation is with Ford of Kirkland, I emailed them and asked how many reservations they had and what their allocation was. They replied and said
" Bronco reservations will go in sequence, it will not be affected by our dealership allocation. Once your reservation is converted to ordered, Ford will provide all the updates for you when you log into your Ford account. "
Being as we all just got an email from Ford saying that it was a factor its not a great start with them. They were more of a place holder in the mean time any how. Has anyone else had any conversations with them on their reservations and allocation?
For those going Sasquatch: If Ford offered the manual with Squatch (apparently they are testing it) would you go manual or stay with the auto?
Automatic seems to be better for actual rock climbing/serious offroad, but are there any advantages to having a manual if you are doing rock climbing?
Any of you soon to be Kraken fans? (shout out to WhatsKraken) I am a season ticket holder so pretty pumped. I just happen to notice 2 of the team colors looks pretty similar to 2 of the Bronco colors. What do you think? I can actually make a BronKraken.
Did everybody watch the Bronco allocation video? I'm not sure if everybody jumping on the Bowen bandwagon is the greatest thing now. If some one is proficient at surveys, we should put up a survey on reservation date and dealer location, so we can make sure everybody gets a bronco in MY21. My reservation date is 7/15 at Bowen
After a few email exchanges and a brief chat on the phone with Raymond at Pierre Ford in Lake City - they will honor the $1,000 off MSRP as some of the other dealers have mentioned out of State (referring to Oregon and some in Ca)
The bundle he mentions is this group or others - feel free to mention this forum as this is where I said I would post...
If you were to bring us a bundle deal like you mentioned I would be willing to honor the $1,000 under MSRP to earn the business and everyone would work with me directly to make the process smooth and allow for no hiccups in the process!
Hello Puget Sounders...my name is Cat, and I reserved a 2D WildTrak, and I want it Squatch, with 2.7L engine, and tow package, High or Lux Package. I am crazy for the Cyber Orange. I live on Whidbey Island, and am currently aligned with Frontier Ford, after switching from an Everett dealer due to proximity. Now, I think I am regretting making the switch. No good communication, no good deals or incentives.
Are there any group buys occurring in WA, or Puget Sound? I have been reading good things about Bowen.
I contacted the person who handles the reservations/orders over at Evergreen Ford in Issaquah to see if they might do something like other dealers are with price and warranty and they are firm that they will not match other offers. They are saying they are proud not to be marking up the price. Also, they threw shade on all other "Good Deals" out there.
Names left out to not harm the innocent....
Here's what they wrote:
We made the decision to not mark up the Bronco above MSRP and I know many dealers are adding a markup. Since margins are so low on new vehicles I'm sure other dealers will try to find a way to look like they are offering incentives. It seems, from your description below, that Bowen Scarff will discount the Bronco $1,000 if you buy a extended warranty. Of course, they will over charge this warranty by at least a $1,000.
Not sure I trust everything on forums. I read on one of them that a dealer in the mid West was selling the Bronco at Invoice. Playing these trick will get people to change or cancel their reservation and start from scratch and not get their Bronco until mid to late 2022 or later.
What's everyone's off-roading experience in the group and where do you plan on exploring in the beautiful NW?
This will be my first rig, so I'm trying to learn all I can about off-roading, safety, and essential equipment. I've owned quads and dirtbikes, but never a ride that could venture far beyond maintained trails.
My first adventure will probably be Capitol Forest (Waddel Creek and Rock Candy area), since it's so close and I'm familiar enough with it from my quading and dirtbike days.
Just been chatting with Manager at Bowen Scarff. They are more than happy to have any of us come in and test drive an F150 and a Ranger both to get an impression of both engines. Just give them a heads up and they'll accommodate as needed.
What dealer does everyone have their reservations at? Mine is Bill Pierre Ford in North Seattle. I haven't heard anything from them yet. Have you guys heard from your dealers? I know nothing about Bill Pierre Ford so if you know of a better dealer close to Seattle please let me know.
I went down there as well - a few different than what were posted on front page - but same idea - it was extremely cool see and touch the thing in person - that Area 51 paint color is really awesome in person - did not think I was going to like it - but it changed my mind for sure.
