Agreed, wasn't one of the employees from the hardtop suppliers on here saying that the factory for the tops wasn't going to be done until December anyways?
IIRC, yes. All the talk of delays into January for ordering seems to me just to be par for the course when we're talking about a massive product launch like this. They have soooo much they want to get right, and they're doing it in the middle of an international economic $h!tstorm where materials and products from a single major overseas industrial player are still getting sorted out.

Despite the letdown to many people here and in corporate offices alike, further delays seem likely, if not inevitable.

"Other cool things" likely the dual top option that is allegedly more than just a standard soft top and hard top, the cooler system perhaps and other accessories

Everyone should be prepared for a shitty experience. The "Early" Build & Price tool up about two weeks now for 2021 F-150 is a total p.o.s. catastrophe. It shows paint colors that are not available on certain trims and packages, it does not handle properly the coloring (or not) of bumpers and side skirts for two-tone schemes, and for awhile it showed interiors of the highest trim levels available on the XLT. Truly unbelievable for something that is Ford's cash-cow and sacred leader of all-time vehicle sales.

Equally ridiculous is that it only came online as an "early" tool with less than two months before new '21 F-150 trucks start rolling down the assembly lines. God only knows if a fully functional B&P tool will ever be up for this all-important next generation platform.

Nonetheless.... I did order one! :)

Me too. I want the BP just so I can look at what the interiors look like and what the options are for colors. I know what the outside looks like and i’m not not getting Sasquatch so that’s all I care about. Plus yeah, cost.
Agreed. The most meaningful part of the B&P (to me) is confirmation and photos of interior color combos, and what other tidbits could be color changed and accessorized.

"Product Communications Manager"... from the title I would assume he manages Ford's official communication to the public on all things Ford Bronco.

Make Broncos Great Again!!
Yes, that's a pretty good assumption. He's no lackey, but he definitely has to stay on point. When you're as public-facing as he is, you have everything to lose if the corporate bosses get irked. They're not gonna get irked by angry mob of pitchforks and torches in this forum, however. They're gonna get irked by an angry mob of stockholders who lose money when their big product release flops. Then Mike's head will be on a pike on the Dearborn castle wall.

Oh I'm sorry... to both you and Ford's Rock Star B&P Team

Why don't all of you take the day off... no wait take the week off. Give me the code and I'll have that shit up by 7 pm CST TODAY!!

And since I didn't say it in my 1st post, I can say it now. Ford's B&P team.... Useless 😁

I wish I worked at Ford, lol - I work in a boring hospital office setting, tweaking billing systems. I'd rather get yelled at by cool Bronco6G members instead of angry doctors who don't know how to bill patients :geek:
