Buy from Granger and it will justify the road trip (even though road trips don't need to be financially justified as it is its own reward!) AND you will enjoy as stress free car buying experience.
I've never bought from them but have from other straight up dealers and it is night and day...
I went through all this when I bought my truck. I talked to several Utah Ford dealers and nobody had what I was looking for (it is a rare combo) or was willing to deal on ordering one, so they spent their time trying to convince me I didn't want what I wanted.
In the end I found what I wanted...
I've bought many cars and trucks here in Utah over the years and never one from any of the LHM even though I tried pretty hard. Their pricing always is high and they are never willing to come down much.
When you are that huge I guess there are enough clueless impulse buy customers constantly...
Interesting note on the base auto vs base advanced.
Invoice on Base is $28,073 + auto $1,499 = $29,572
Invoice on Base advanced is $30,427. A difference of $855 for the advanced auto transfer case I assume?
So Advanced transfer case invoice is $855? And MSRP is $795?
That would be smart.
If the ratios of this tiny insignificant poll are at all representative of all reservation holders.. and with the recent news that you can wait for a 2022 if you want and your non-converted reservation will NOT be canceled it may just work itself out anyway.
So far seems to be split pretty close to 50/50 for those who want/need in 21 and those who are ok with 22.
Might be good for Ford to offer "voluntary delay of reservation to 22" option to make everyone happy.
Maybe the dealer has that kind of power?
That still works for me.
But going from Zach’s estimate of 45% conversion = 85,000 orders or Ford’s estimate of 75% conversion= 142,500 orders and considering Ford’s production of 140,000/year (?) and their statement that they will build reservation/retail before stock..it would seem likely...
I've noticed in the threads that there are some who absolutely need their Bronco this year to replace an old car, want the bronco this year because they are tired of waiting and some who are fine with it coming whenever it comes.
Wondering what the break out is of each type..
As an "October special" reservation holder who is plenty happy with my current vehicle situation this is great news for me.
1. I get the best deal possible from a straight up dealership.
2. I get to see reviews of the actual vehicle (maybe even drive one?) before laying down money
3. I get to...
If you are sticking to overlanding and light off-roading the Base with more aggressive tires should be fine. How much capability you need is completely up to you and the roads you choose.
I've done lots of off-roading in my 4x2 pickup with a locker in the rear. It is more capable than open diff...
Back in the 80's my cousin jumped his family's 15 pass Ford van on the street. There was a great lip on one of the cross streets.
He kept his foot on the gas when it was airborne.
Upon landing the tires weren't giving anything between the compressed suspension of a 7klb van and sticky warm...
I thought about that.. and know it will sway the accuracy.. which is not very accurate anyway.
But in many of the "I've cancelled" threads they say they will still be hanging around so figured it was worth a shot.
I know it won't be scientifically accurate but thought it would be interesting to see SOME type of statistics on cancellations.
Edit - it will be skewed to "no" as those who cancel may leave the forum as well. But some claim to still be coming back so figured give it a shot.
I was pretty confident my Granger October reservation would be MY 22 and was cool knowing I wouldn't get it for probably 18 months. In fact I was hoping MY22 would have hitch and rear locker as stand alone options on Base maybe..
But with all the cancelations.. including ones not announced on...
