Or maybe renting someone else's Bronco in the interim. I wonder how much they will go for?

Ha- My guess is it'd be $150-$200 per day. I've used Turo twice and had poor experiences. Both were several years ago but one instance had the car's battery dying mid-intersection and the other had expired plates which caused me to get pulled over on my way to the airport. Ever since then I swore I'd never use Turo again b/c there's no guarantee how often the cars are used and if they're maintained or not.

I feel your pain! I was hopping for my 21 now I am a 22. It sucks driving around my little commuter car for another 9 plus months.

Think it's reasonable we understand OP's frustration. Early day two and maybe on outs for MY21. Sure we all know there are no guarantees here, but his expectation was appropriate based on everything we've been told and heard. Imagine a first hour reservation being told...tough it's MY22 at this point in the process. Is it okay if they're disappointed?

Guess I'm saying some understanding for the frustration is appropriate. We certainly offer a lot of understanding in Ford's case.

So I am not very happy today. Spoke with my dealer to see where things stand. He told me last week I was 26 out of 70 orders and he was getting about a 30-35% allocation. Has been telling me in past correspondance I was just inside the 2021 Allotment. Well yesterday he informed me that due to the fact that he has 7 FEs I am now on the outside of the 2021 allotment window. He is only getting 16 non FEs and I am 20. SO unless 4 others are bumped for some commodity reason (which I am sure would effect me too), I am NOT get a 2021.

I am honestly so frustrated and annoyed right now. I ordered within 11 hours of the orders opening and will somehow not receive a vehicle. I also sold my truck a couple weeks ago as I got a VERy good offer from Vroom and figured I should bank that money and payments for the next few months figuring I would have my Bronco by end of summer and my company is work from home until at least end of August. Now I dont know what I am going to do. I dont think we can deal with a single vehicle he the next year. Getting through 3-4 months we could make it work. 9+ months not sure we can.

This allotment formula is BS. There are going to be a LOT of people with times well past mine that will be getting their Broncos this summer. I am so ready to say eff this and just look for something else. I was not expecting one in the first batch but honestly thought I would see one mid sept at the latest. I had thought about moving my order to one of the big dealers, but thought my odds would be worse there with so many orders. But looking at the Chapman Ford I would have been like 65 out of a couple hundred orders and looks like well within their window. I stayed with this dealer as he gave me the best price in the state and had been on top of things with regards to my order and some changes. Now due to low allotment I am out of luck.

Sorry had to vent, and figured some of you will probably be feeling the same way in the next couple weeks as everyone finds out where they stand.

Which dealership is this? I am also going to a small dealership near Chapman.

With the exception of color green being new for 22. Does anyone else know if there is anything else new for 22?

I think you should just leave and get something else. That way number 21 in your group at the dealer feels better :)
Not to sound mean but honeslty dont expect sympathy for not having a second car after you made the adult decision to sell it.

I guess I am amazed that even with 16 Non-FE and your super-early res you aren't a shoe-in for a spot.
I hate it for ya and it is stressful, I'm sure.
If in fact you are delayed until '22 and can't make the single vehicle work (I get that also with kids at home and ALL of the running we do. Wife works from home and there are times we need 3 vehicles it seems) I would look at maybe driving something you can pay cash for and sell for about the same as you paid.
IT might not be the best looking thing, or even something you even want.
But it would be simple transportation to get ya by while waiting.
I can't tell you how many $300-2000 vehicles I've bought, drove for 2-3 years, sold for what I paid if not more.
I love the reliability and feel of new vehicles, but driving for free is a good feeling too. '
If that doesn't work...honestly the other options for the same price point or less aren't terrible.
Raptors are amazing. Expeditions are great vehicles, and for the roof-off experience, if it weren't for the Bronco coming back I would have a new Jeep already.
If it was summer I'd say you could get a cheap motorcycle, save a crapola amount of $ on fuel, enjoy some open air freedom. Sell it for what you paid.
But I don't ride below about 40 degrees (no fairings or windshield) and I'm sure winters where you are make ours feel great.
Now this person knows how to work around a problem! There are always solutions just sometimes you have to look hard.

Heritage Edition. Painted Hardtops in Shadow Black and Oxford White. That's all I can think of.

This really sucks and I feel for ya. Good luck on maybe one of the others falling through so you get back in 21. Although one of the others are probably on the forum too.
