I have a vehicle built on 11/13 thus no airbag defects, but my Bronco sits in a rail yard just ready to be purchased, but it sits. ;-)
That's unreal... but it's better than being built on 08/05 and waiting until 11/19 for delivery.

I work at a pretty large dealer in metro Atlanta.
I too have a Bronco on order,but it amazes me
the truck loads of Ford vehicles we get in daily.
F150's/Super duty's/ Explorers/Edge's/Escapes.
Everything but Bronco's.
You would think if Ford can procure parts to
build these units they could also get parts for Bronco builds.

You’d think so, right?

FMC is not going to spread parts around to make us happy or even simply to move Broncos out the door. It allocates parts in the same way it does everything -- to maximize quarterly profit. If FMC has to backburner Bronco production because throwing more parts at it won't increase quarterly profit, then that is what FMC will do. That's how the corporate world works.

So does that mean that 17,856 are in transit, dealer mannequins or stranded on dirt mountain?
Mannequins count as "sold". Sold means that FoMoCo sold them, not that they sold to an end customer. (accounting)

Rail Transit takes weeks. It's not crazy to wait 4-6 weeks from build to delivery. Ok, it IS crazy, but apparently normal.

Think about this, a friend recently went to the Virgin Islands, where he saw a bunch of new Broncos (more than the total he saw stateside - 10+).

Right now, your chances of actually owning a Bronco (today) are probably less than 1 in 10,000. You have a much better chance of getting nCoV-2019.

Yeah, I agree. Although honestly I don't think it has anything to do with Ford playing favorites with dealerships. It's just the allocation system they have, and it's similar to Ford's usual allocation formula they've used in the past with all vehicles.

The problem I have is that the reservation system seems to directly conflict with the allocation system, which in turn directly impacts customers. So while I think it is fair and completely reasonable for Ford to allocate vehicles to dealers based on past sales performance, it is unfair to us as customers who rushed to get a reservation in and are now trapped because we decided to pick a certain dealer.

Chances are there will be people with a 2020 reservation who will get pushed to 2023 simply because of the reservation system.
^^ What he said, 100%. - I call bullshit on Ford!
