    Message to FORD – From a Bronco Reservation Holder & Potential Customer

    Buying from another dealer and servicing at local dealer?

    I suppose the ding could happen if there’s only one service Dept in your city. But with all service depts competing for customers I can’t see jealousy being a competitive advantage.

    Buying from another dealer and servicing at local dealer?

    Bought a Toyota from one local dealer who was honest, upfront, and answered all my questions. I get it serviced at another local dealer that has a terrific service Dept. Never had an issue. It can be done. You have to figure out if the logistics of getting the vehicle home are worth it. That’s it.

    OBX losing it’s luster

    I’m hoping that Ford makes an OBX- trim available that has high pkg std and comes with a manual. That would be my ideal rig.

    Message to FORD – From a Bronco Reservation Holder & Potential Customer

    What you’re not seeing is that bigger dealers will get much more of their orders for Broncos filled in 2021 than smaller dealers. Small dealers will get Broncos in drips. This removes any reason for Ford dealers to compete with each other as anyone who moves to a smaller, more competitive dealer...

    Ford Just Briefed Dealers on Bronco Allocations, Ordering Dates, Build Date Estimates

    Agreed, if Toyota is paying attention to Bronco at all & starts advertising the reworked 4Runner in the next 60 days it could create a headache for Ford.

    Ford Just Briefed Dealers on Bronco Allocations, Ordering Dates, Build Date Estimates

    I think it honestly depends on where Granger & Stephens fell in the top 100 Ford dealer volume charts + how many Jeeps get sold in their area. But it could be very ugly for customers who have a later than day 1 time stamp, yes.

    Ford Just Briefed Dealers on Bronco Allocations, Ordering Dates, Build Date Estimates

    Erm, I beg to differ. Ford expects to convert 75% of reservations into orders. That’s 123,750 orders. There are 12,000 Bronco6G members - fully 10% of those expected orders. I’d be willing to bet that the average transaction price of Bronco6G members will be higher than overall Bronco...

    Ford Just Briefed Dealers on Bronco Allocations, Ordering Dates, Build Date Estimates

    I agree with the stressful part. Before the change the dealers were competing with each other. Now WE the CUSTOMERS are competing with each other to get a car first. The whole thing makes me upchuck.

    Ford Just Briefed Dealers on Bronco Allocations, Ordering Dates, Build Date Estimates

    What you made very clear was your lack of interest in doing anything to entice reservations to your dealership and then, due to your relative size compared to other dealers, get more 2021 Broncos than you would have gotten the original way. This is why you didn’t feel a need to post here...

    Honestly, the situation is a little darker than what you painted. The dealer converts as many reservations into orders as it can. It then has power to pick which orders get filled first. But it gets to hold on to all deposits until the vehicles arrive. So if you don’t have friends/family at the...

    Hardtop Hoist ?

    Having done the Jeep two door ones I’m thinking the Bronco doors will be less bulky - so easier - but not so easy you’ll pop them off b4 heading to 7-11 for a slurpee.

    Assembly Line Video of 2 and 4 Door Broncos

    The weight difference could be because of the pop-out rear windows needing to be beefier/thicker and require metal framing, seals, etc.

    Status Symbol Complex

    Ok, so here goes. I’m getting a Big Bend trim. Whew, that wasn’t so bad. <and cue the chairs> Truth: my Bronco will cost ten times more than each of the last three cars I’ve bought. I’ve been a used car buying lifer. Always wrenched on my rides, sometimes before I even got to drive them for...

    I prefer prop rods - they don’t lose strength in the cold. Who’s in for a trip on the ALCAN with their new Bronco? 👉🏼😃👈🏽 This guy!!
