  6. 📊 2022 Bronco Allocations Formula Per Dealer

    The formula is a complex math equation I don't fully understand. Ford is putting weight on overall sales over the last three years. Then equal weight on Bronco Sport sales and 2021 total allocation we were supposed to get.

    I wrote a big long explanation, but I'm going to refrain from posting further. None of this is constructive, my comments inclusive.

    The JL was launched in 2017. As for the Z? Nissan has been living in the past for 15 years now. They're just now getting their lineup to modern standards. Launching the Bronco during a pandemic was ambitious. Frankly, if the hard top wasn't an issue this conversation is completely different...

    I know you don't like it, but get ready for the future, this is the direction manufacturers are going. Reservations are here to stay. Mach-E was reservation only and was a largely successful launch. I still can't keep them in stock when I get them, a year later. Reservations give the...

    You are correct, but reservations gave the consumer way more power on a hot new product. Our store was planning for markup on all Bronco before the reservation system and allocation formulas were fully understood. Once we realized there was an opportunity to earn marketshare by offering a...

    That's why our store didn't require additional deposit upon ordering, we understand people want a chance to drive it/see/touch. We have yet to have someone back out after driving it. We made it clear that we didn't want the order if they weren't planning on following through. Markups would be...

    Potentially, but high constraint commodities are locked out.

    I've already explained this: it would be inefficient to build them strictly in order of timestamp, that's before the supply chain issues, MIC issues, etc... Order timing is more than just timestamp, it always has been. Where your dealer is located is also a part of the puzzle. You reserved in...

    Have a source on that 40K? We're converting early reservations at a higher clip than later.

    25% of the weight is based on 2021 allocations (of which Granger got a ton relative to their size). Granger got way more allocations because of Albert and Zach's hard work and outstanding pricing. Their hard work for 2021 will get them more allocations in 2022 as well.
  17. 📊 2022 Bronco Allocations Formula Per Dealer

    How many reservations did this dealer have? How many were soft top? And your Dealer's reservation and soft top counts? Are there similar orders to yours with earlier timestamps that got scheduled? What about location, where is your dealer vs. theirs, how many dealers nearby with similar builds?
