It's not like they really started building them to do a stop build, as far as we know not one Heritage has made it to a customer yet so who knows. This is the first written confirmation of an issue but of course they don't publicize the problem or an ETR so it's all back to us sitting around guessing. I can try to be an optimist and say yes, admission of a problem is the first step to actually fixing the problem but Ford's had over 3 years to figure it out if it's the top.
Isn’t the MOD top made by another contractor? I recall a while back Ford cancelled the MOD with the MIC top maker. BTW, also just read where the MIC top makers employees voted to join the UAW.

Every part on a bronco except the sheet metal and a few castings is made by a “contractor”. Ford assembles vehicles, the vertical supply chain Henry set up eroded a long time ago.

Yes I know that, I was just pointing out how Ford changed contractors for the MOD top.

I think it's time for me to ditch my Heritage Limited order. I got pushed back over the weekend to August and now I see the "Stop Build" order from Ford.
If I get pushed to 24 I’m switching from Heritage to Wildtrak

I saw a Heritage driving through Laurel Canyon this past weekend in LA. It's the only one I've seen out and about.

By 2024 Wildtrak will be the new "Heritage" lol
I did just email dealer to ask if switching from HE to either badlands or Wildtrak would get scheduled faster. Seems those are being built, I like those models as well and luxe packages with capabilities.

My guess is that it was a home built Heritage vice factory build or maybe a Bronco Sport one. There's absolutely no real Bronco Heritage's on any of the dealer or for sale sites out there and if any actually made it out there you know there would be one on one of the auction sites.

Hell why didn’t they ship out the raptors they have versus making more that they will probably park to do another price increase….

What sucks about switching is that I'm scheduled and have no choice but for them to fix it or make a decision to cancel/postpone it. If they do I have no clue how that's going to affect the price protection increases that have happened over '23. My original '21 BD order that I kept rolling over is now $54k, is Ford going to honor the price on an old order? I seriously doubt it!

That’s a really good point. I have no price protection and am not scheduled so I wonder if I would lose my place in line since order was already submitted or changing it to a WT or BL would speed up the process. Never heard of a hard stop to production but I love those trims as well.

All the BS started when Ford decided not to follow APQP. The decision makers knew better and blamed it on covid. Picking Webasto as the original supplier did not help.
