constraints will be less of an issue than allocations now it appears. Wait till we see Sasquatched Badlands with MIC sitting on dealer lots while day 2 reservation holders are told they won't get their shit in 2022 because they chose a dealer that wouldn't rob them blind.Probably constraints.
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.@Gloff
pardon my ignorance
Levine’s recent comments on twitter seem to suggest to me that Ford wants to favor dealerships that sell all the models and don’t just push a few hot models.
any chance there is more to this formula?and these percentages somehow relate to a dealerships mix of sales rather than overall number of sales?

My dealer has only delivered one and that was mine this past Friday. They receive a BB for the showroom floor just two weeks ago. I'm sure there are a lot of dealers that has seen nothing.I would check to see if they have not made an error at the dealership level. It does not jive for any dealer to not have received at least one allocation build by this time. There is more to this story, IMO.
Exactly, that is why it would take 50 Einsteins to figure out the formula... its all BS... All I know is I want my F*CKING Bronco... let me tell you, I don't get it and my dealer instead gets it... I will be outside the dealership with a bullhorn and a big f*cking sign... with my computer (I work from home); I will put a pox on the entire shitshow... LOL (Yes, people from South Philly are nuts - including me)You just have understand the process.
1) Decide what dealers you want to reward
2) Make a "formula" that rewards them
Very simple if you have the right point of view. The actually formula developed is irrelevant and not worth trying to understand
Looks like Toyota is having delivery issues also.I started looking at 4 runners last week and reached out to a dealer today about some quotes.
It's not the long wait that is pushing me away. More the QC issues, high dependency on tech, and ugly gauge cluster that are the turn offs. Plus the 4runner comes with so much more standard.Looks like Toyota is having delivery issues also.

On the other hand, i still want a 2 door manual, so i need to see what the dealers come back with.
Then im thinking i can get the bronco try it, and if i don't like it trade up and revisit bronco in another 5 years.
Good to have options
