Thanks for sharing. Hoping some dealerships here in Denver get one in A51 soon.

Is this a mannequin or trainer? Or are these actually hitting the lots already?
Queen Creek is in Arizona, just a hop, skip and a Jump across the border (pun intended) from it's manufacturing site in Mexico. From what I understand, Job #1 for Sport was a while ago, this should be a production unit.

I did, however, anticipate a dozen posts about "the white pilliars are ugly, why can't we have a white roof?".... Before somebody pointed out they are transport wraps for surface protection.

No, they are on lots according to the Ford website. Apparently there is an A51 in the Ford lot across the street from me. I'll be poking around there when I get off work in 4 hours. The Ford dealer up there street is said to have Cactus Gray, white, A51, Carbonized Gray, and black. Should I post pics if I can get to them. Let me know...

It is a production vehicle - but all of the initial Sports are automatically being enrolled into the "mannequin" program by Ford and into the Courtesy Transportation Pgm. So it will be used as a service loaner for the first few months. Ford is doing the same with the initial Mach E's. This one arrived at our sister store in Buckeye, AZ. My store hasn't received ours yet - we have 2 mannequins coming (both oxford white ?) and a carbonized gray and iconic silver.

On the ford website, "just arrived" doesn't mean they are on the lot, in case you are using that as the indication.

Did you track this down, and if so, what was your method?

I have been going on Ford's inventory list to seek out A51 on the Sport, and everything listed by me is "Just Arrived". I then cross reference on the dealer website and it then either says "Dealer Ordered" or "In Transit". I called a couple of those dealers each week for a few weeks, but stopped, since everyone was saying the same thing - get back to us in mid-December.

My dealer has 4 on their website but with stock photos. That usually means they will be on the lot in a week or so.

Not a bad little crossover for $32K that you can take out on a trail and get to a good campsite. Hope the Bronco Sport does well.

Think a young person just starting out in their career but want an adventure vehicle would love to grab one of these and outfit it to a nice spec.
