As a test, I ordered identical Broncos from two dealerships

One with a reservation I made 8/13/21 and one that had no reservation. All I've learned is that allocation is the biggest constraint at this point. The reservation system really means next to nothing.

The build is pretty easy - a 2022 4 door Badlands with 2.7, Sasquatch package, and high package. No other options selected. Soft top.

The first order was placed 12/10 at a large Central Texas dealership it was tied to my reservation and I have heard nothing since the order went through. According to the Ford site, it is not scheduled for production. The second order was placed 12/23 at a smaller dealership in Lubbock. I received word this morning that I am scheduled for build in early March and received my VIN.

I'm not sure why Ford hasn't tried to take care of reservation holders better, but for anyone that's still waiting and doesn't have a build date - reach out to another dealer and see if you can just order another one. The location I ordered the second one from ordered with no deposit gave me a written agreement that there is no markup.

Did you happen to get any info from the second smaller dealer such as:
allocation
reservations/orders placed but not filled

I didn't ask.

My buddy had ordered one (no reservation) on 12/15 and had a VIN/build date of 2/14 the next week. I ordered right before Christmas (right after he got a VIN so fast) so I think mine only took that "long" because of the 3 weeks off for the holiday and catching up. I could tell they didn't have too many orders because their order number they give is just the date, his was 1215 and mine was 1223. He ordered a 4 door soft top badlands with sasquatch and lux package.

OK. Thank you. Glad you had good luck! From what I can tell, most dealers either can't or won't tell you what their allocation is and barely give exact info as to how many orders they have that need filled. So it makes it difficult to figure out what dealer to go with.

I'm sure lots of people are gonna want the dealers info...... they may get a lot of orders!

Covert.

I'm just a little north of you in Liberty Hill.
Ah cool, I'm with Leif Johnson.

I've counted 6 within 4 miles of my house in the last 2 months! Pulled up to a black (or maybe AMB? Hard to tell at 6 PM) Badlands last night on 183A frontage, felt so silly just staring and dreaming LOL :cry:

We'll get it one day! If you see a blue Ranger Tremor with a tubular front bumper around, that's me!

FWIW, they are charging a $15,000 ADM on their 2 door OuterBanks listed on their website. Hope there isn't any funny business when you go to buy it. And ADM on their other listed Broncos too.

That's the one I don't have a build date on yet - so I more than likely won't be buying it. That being said, I have written and verbal agreement that all custom orders are at MSRP with them.

Yeah I had a similar outcome except I tried it with 3 dealerships. Large Volume Discount vs Large Dealership with many Bronco Orders vs Mid-size dealership with about 25 Orders.

The Mid-size dealership won even though I ordered it much much later than the other 2. Ordered in December and getting built in March. OBX, SAS, MIC hardtop.
