Talked to my local dealer yesterday.
Said they have 189 reservations and received 69 for allocation.

They stated that Ford only gave out 70K total allocations to be built for MY21. So my dealer is only converting the 69 orders for now.
They also stated that corporate has directed them to go in order of timestamp of reservations they do have, regardless of late availability/delayed builds.

Based on my our meeting on Friday there are going to be a ton of delays and drop offs with orders. It seems like higher end trims like badlands or leather equipped models and even Sasquatch will be harder to get if at all the first year based on allocation. If you didn’t reserve day one the odds aren’t in your favor. More standard equipped like base and big bend will be more available. You’ll likely be called in soon to do the whole order and you will be told even though your ordering this thing we have no guarantees on time and if it’ll come in with everything. You’ll likely go through as much of the numbers at the dealer soon that way there are no surprises in 6 months or whenever these things show up. If you order a bronco and don’t buy it from that dealership, that dealership will be fined/penalized. That’s why they want as much money, info and commitment up front. It’s really a mess, I know a couple guys that aren’t even bothering taking orders after all this. Dealers aren’t being allocated nearly the inventory wanted or expected with all the demand. Personally I’m waiting until 2022 when they everything in order maybe different packages

No, that's in fact not what I'm saying. You're reading a lot into what I'm saying that I did not in fact say. To use your example, the language in the terms as originally posted provides for building according to availability of parts, so if they don't have the parts for the sasquatch then they can build a later reservation while waiting for your parts. However, no part of the terms and conditions allowed for them to delay building your vehicle because of limitations on dealer allocations. In fact, when the reservation system first was introduced Ford appears to have intended to build them in line with reservation numbers as close as possible within manufacturing constraints (e.g. batch manufacturing efficiencies and availability of parts). However, the dealerships seemed to have balked at this and forced Ford into this asinine allocation system which completely negates the reservation system and is a breach of the initial contract (which is why they've rewritten the new T&C several times to account for these changes for new reservations).
I am sorry but your post is wrong, wrong,wrong. Ford was always going to allocate Bronco's to its dealers. No Bronco will be allocated to a Dealer with out a valid time stamped reservation customer. Yes people are and will be disappointed because of limited quantity of MY21 Broncos. The people who really want a Bronco will have one with in a year. There are people on this site that have been waiting for their BRONCO for YEARS and they are the ones with the biggest SMILES because it's Happening.
This whole process of getting a new Bronco designed, Tested, built and brought to market with COVID in the mix has tested Ford's metal. We are watching an American Auto Manufacturer navigate a tightrope with the future of the company and the employees on the line. It has to be both exciting and stressful to be apart of Bronco. I for one wish them success, because if they win we the customers win.

Ford is guessing 70000 converted for MY21. But yet ,the chance of being pushed even further back due to common options everyone here have been posting they wanted is hard to believe. The bronco needs its own assembly line. The demand is there.

Finally got all the way through this thread...


Same I reserved on 7/14 so I feel pretty good about getting mine by June/July
Think again, nothing is guaranteed. I'm #187 out of 140 allocated, according to my dealer, with a 7/14 reservation (mid day, IIRC). I was told I might be a 2022, maybe a 2021 if people cancel or certain builds are pushed back


I think it is pretty ridiculous if you reserved in the first week that you may not get a unit until December 2021 or later.. my assumption is Ford is gonna get 40% conversion and we all are over reacting.
Agree, ridiculous. Here I was thinking that a second day reservation wasn't too bad. I also hope we're all overreacting.


If Ford thinks my 7/14 3am reservation will not only possibly end up a 2022MY but potentially go up in price because they're buffoons then they can eat a dick.
+1.

I have to believe that there will be more cancellations, so I'll keep playing along. I'm thinking Black Diamond, and the only issue that might delay me (according to what I read) is the 2-door. So I'm proceeding with the hope that, no matter what the initial numbers say, I'll ultimately get a 2021. The counter-argument is that the people who reserved very early, ahead of me, are also probably the most serious buyers and least likely to cancel.

I had my reservation in within the first 45 minutes of the site going live; not worried.

My reservations is on 7/14, second day. I really don't think I will get my Bronco until October. If a second day reservation has to wait until MY 2022 that is pretty sad. But I will wait. I have 3 other vehicles, all 4x4, all paid for. I can wait. I really think this truck is worth it. JMO.
1/20-I just found out I'm 159 out of approx 150 dealer allocations. So maybe I will get a 2021, maybe I wont

I'm an early morning 14th reservation. Number 13 of 42 allocations to my dealer in NY. I think I'm safe!

You are not wrong. If a dealer received 50 allocations last week then the 1st 50 on their list gets to submit their orders.

I thought it was the number of Broncos each dealership can order? Am I wrong?
