Ford can't do much about it because Dealerships have lobbied for laws that protect them from the "big bad manufacturers" I've looked up my state's laws and it is pretty crazy what exactly is limited. Like specifcally, in Maryland, a manufacturer cannot with hold vehicles from a dealership.

Which is why my first dealership, a maryland dealer, was absolutely upset when I pulled my order from him. Which is also why the formula for allocation favored the dealerships instead of the customers.

This country is so backwards.

Zach said that would get price protection, but price protection is only promised if there was an order (not just a reservation) in before 3/19/21. I ordered my manual Badlands on 1/29/21, but I want the MIC top and didn't get scheduled, so I plan add Sasquatch assuming I'll get bumped to 2022 at this point.
My dealer automatically turned my reservation into an order in January and Ford said they shouldn't have done that and told me to cancel that order, add a 2nd reservation (In January) and they behind the scenes changed the date to match my night 1 reservation.

Will be interesting to see what happens when I finally order my 2022.

This is great information. My only question, are we going to receive an email as to when we can place the new order for the 2022's or is the dealership going to reach out to us? I heard it was going to be in September sometime and the month is almost half over. Thanks.

@[email protected] I see in the OP that you mention orders in before 3/19 only, but I could have sworn some of those earlier emails said orders and reservations in before 3/19 (e.g. I wanted a body colored hard top, which at the time I thought was going to be available in 22, so I didn't order).

If anyone is on the fence switching dealerships, switching to Granger is highly recommended… I’m a granger customer and can attest to Zach and His staff, they are all class acts, honesty and integrity…

I guess I don’t need to tell any of you this, his posts suggest that already…

good on ya @[email protected]
I greatly regret not using Granger from the beginning. I wanted to stay local and that didn't work out, then went semi-local and that's not working out either. Strongly believe if I would have started out at Granger I'd have a bronco in the driveway right now. I'll be switching.

2021 model year has come and gone (mostly) and you've been left without a VIN and Bronco schedule date yet. We were intially allocated 203 Broncos for the model year, because of production delays we will end up receiving vins for roughly 75% of our original estimate. So don't fret, you are not alone! How do you prepare for 2022 MY Orders opening? Here's a few helpful tips to keep in mind.

Order of things to come
  1. The Order Guide will be released - This is our ordering 'gospel' if you will. There are lots of rumors of what will or will not be added to the 2022 Bronco options. If that option is not on the ordering guide it is not available. I'm sure it will be found online somewhere before I can find it, so please pour over it and finalize your options before calling your dealer.
  2. Ordering will be open in Conceps, then in WBDO. Be patient! - CONCEPS is a old computer system that you can back your way into in Ford's system and was used for years. For those of you who were born before millenials, you are more than familiar with how to navigate these screens. I am not. :) So ordering will open in conceps a day or two before, B6G members will rush like crazy to get your order placed, but the majority of orders will be placed in WBDO, it is a much easier system to navigate, you'll need to just wait a day or so.
  3. Order time doesn't determine scheduling - We should know this by now, but the time you place the order does not determine when your Bronco will be built. I'm not sure on the exact dates, but Ford has allowed a 30-60 day window to place your order. As long as you place your order in that timeframe, your reservation date will determine your priority, not your order date.
  4. Production start up - 2022 Bronco Production is slated to start in December. I, like all of you, am hoping for a smooth start up for 2022. Ford has prioritized chip availability, with MIC 2.0 solving top issues Ford should be able to belt out significantly more production for 2022 model year than 2021 (which was 6 months of production). Now we also live in a world where covid has hampered production for all manufacturers, so please keep that in mind.
  5. 2022 Bronco Delivery timeline to Dealers - With production starting in December 2021, January 2022 should be when dealers start to see their Broncos show up on the lot in volume. Keep in mind I've seen two different model years show up on the same transport. With the demand the Bronco has, anticipate Ford building as much as they can to satisfy the pent up demand and not a big wait from end of 2021 to beginning of 2022.
FAQs

Will I need to place a new order?
- Yes, the Ford system does not allow us to just convert from a 2021 model year to a 2022 model year without any other changes. We have to initiate a new order as a 2022 and replicate your past options if no other changes are requested. I'd recommend you verify all the new options are correct and ask for an order summary for a 2022 build if you had a 2021.

What about price protection? - If you have an order now your order will be price protected for 2022 as well. The key is your name and address need to match what is on your Ford account. If you switch trims, your price protection will still be okay. If Ford releases a new Edition (i.e. Raptor, Heritage, Etc.) you will pay whatever the new price is, there is no price protection on a new model, because it wasn't there for 2021. If you switch from a base to a big bend over the model year change, your pricing will be fine.

Will my dealer know their total allocation for 2022 MY? - It is my understanding that allocation for 2022 model year, while following the same/similar formula as 2021, will not be given out as a total year number in 2022. As I stated in the beginning of this post, we didn't receive our 2021 model year estimate because of delays. Taking it month-by-month like the traditional allocation system allows can help Ford adjust more quickly on the fly and dealerships will only know on a monthly basis what their allocation looks like.

Reservations versus new orders. What is the difference? - Ford has now stated that they are accepting new retail orders, but has temporarily suspended the reservation system. With such great demand, why would Ford allow new orders to be placed? If a dealer has exhausted their demand for Big Bend 4-doors and a new customer walks up and wants to place an order, this allows the dealer to place that order and the customer to receive production sooner. This does not allow a customer with the same exact order to leap frog a customer with a reservation for the exact same Bronco. Towards the end of 2022, while reservations are closed to exhausted, this will allow more customers to get the Bronco they want faster. Reservations > Retail Orders.

Should I forget about soft tops? - No!!! I still maintain that if you want your order ASAP order with a soft top. While I anticipate hard top production to pick up dramatically, the soft top will still be in less demand and if you equip your order with a soft top it will schedule more quickly. Unless you are a super early reservation holder that hasn't received their Bronco yet for 2021, I would not forget about the soft top to expedite orders.

In summary, I'm trying to remain optimistic as the 2022 model year order banks open up. The micro chip shortage is not going away anytime soon, that is going to be a battle that Ford fights all year. But I know they are prioritizing those supplies for the Bronco. Between that and a hard top fix, my hope is that Ford can build all they anticipate on a monthly basis and fill all existing reservation demand in 2022. That is my hope and I don't have any specific insight, but with customers backing out of reservations for various reasons and the shut off of new reservations, that number will continue to get smaller and smaller as the year goes on.

As always, we're very appreciative of everyone here and will do our best to help and assist anyone who has an existing reservation with us, another dealer, is considering transferring, or looking to place a fresh order. We're extremely grateful for the community @Administrator has built here and look forward to continue to contribute our little piece to make it better.

Granger Specific Customers - As a reminder, we do not participate in out of state leasing and courtesy deliveries at another dealership.

My Ford rep tells me that your order will convert automatically in a couple of weeks. His advice: "Do Not Touch." The last Bronco correspondence I received from Ford said: A Bronco order placed today takes us through the 2022 CALENDAR year to be scheduled.
The fear is that if I go in to make changes, it may get bounced out of sequence. Sales is being advised to work with customers and possibly find a Bronco from stock rather than place an order. The plan is to have a lot of the backlog shipped by end of October. Also, I don't see the bumper with fog lamps being available on the base model, std. on Big Bend and Black Diamond packages. Looks like patience is the best course of action right now.
------------------------------------------------------
The email I just got from my For Dealer.
This is so frustrating. I e-mailed him and said I would like to add the capable bumper with fog lights when we convert my 2021 to a 2022 order.
The find a Bronco from stock thing made my laugh.
FWIW I have bought vehicles from this family owned Ford Dealer now for 3 generations of owners.
All new vehicles. My 1st was a 1981 F350 4x4.
1984 T-Bird Throttle body injection.
1987 GT5.0 with Port injection. 1987 Ranger
1989 Bronco II
1995 F150
1998 F150
1997 Expedition 1999 Expedition
2000 Mustang
2002 Sport Trak
2005 F350 4x4 Diesel
2006 F350 4x4 Diesel
2009 Lincoln MKS
2013 Mustang Convertible
2014 F150 3.5 eco boost
6 Explorers 2011, 2012, 2013, 2015, 2017 and 2018
I still have the 2 diesels and a 2015 and 2018 Explorer.

So I think the Dealership is being as honest with me as they can.

FYI I had no reservation, 3/15 order. 2-Door 2.7 Mic, Base non Sas.
No VIN, No Build Date and no Hammock.

My biggest concern with placing an order with some of these great dealers here on the forum helping us out is with the allocation numbers. The one I am working with says they have taken about 450 orders so what happens when Ford has already said 2022 will be limited production and will only send them 300 Broncos?? I assume get bumped to a 2023 or would you be allowed to switch dealers? Would I be better off going with a dealer with less volume?

To me this seems like a key consideration. Because you could be nearer the front of the line in respect to other lists (reservation time stamp, order date, etc), but still potentially get bitten by the allocation thing.

I guess it depends how the reality of 2022 production and demand turns out. If later in year 2022 the production catches up, and people are ordering vehicles the normal way, then maybe allocation is not a constraint.
