Of course Ford is planning on improvements and add-ons for 2022. And they are for 2023 as well. And 2024. And 2025. I could go on and on. They even do improvements throughout the same model year. I guess I'm struggling to understand. No matter what model year it's assigned, you're going to be built whatever is available at that time. You're thinking way too much into this. You're getting the same Bronco whether they give it a 2021 or 2022 model year. Are you concerned with telling your colleagues and friends you're driving a 2021 model year vehicle in July of 2021?Resale is not the main reason for this concern. It will impact all Broncos except maybe the FE's since limited production however. After the delay of the launch and then the delay of the production and delivery, I believe it's only fair to give current reservation holders a 2022 model year when expected deliveries in June 2021.
I guess if this thread receives responses such as yours that you don't care, we (current reservation holders) will surely get a 2021 Bronco almost a full model year old (compared to other SUV's) and then the 2022 model year will have enhancements over 2021 model that we don't receive. I guess you are OK with that. I imagine Ford is already planning upgrades and add ons for 2022 that we won't see in our choices in build/price. They have to create improvements each model year. So, yes, I believe it does matter (not for resale, for fairness to current reservation holders). They should merge 2021 features w/ 2022 proposed features, start with the 2022 model year, and put that into the build and price in December. It's too late of delivery in June to offer a 2021 model year. Truly surprised by some of responses dismissing this real concern.
