From the article:

Build and price just days away
In mid-October, Ford is planning to allow Bronco reservation-holders into the system and custom design their two-door or four-door Bronco. This is known as the build, price and spec process. Official orders will need to be placed by the end of January 2021 and at that point, buyers will select their dealer of choice.

During this process, the order program will suggest nearby dealers based on the ZIP Code of the customer. In a twist, the customers will choose their dealers rather than the dealers getting a big inventory and inviting people to shop in the first year.

Sounds like they didn't get the whole process right either. ?More confusion. People are going to start freaking out wondering if more things are changing again.

I find this interesting, if true:

"We will continue to add new appearance and feature choices, including paint colors and special editions, for customers that have a longer wait."

Perhaps those who delay their reservations to get Granger's newest deal will be rewarded with more/better options for when they finally order.

Maybe.

That would be the ONLY good part of the article.. IF we could select dealer of our choice by January 2021... Too bad that ISN'T true... unless Ford changed it.

Honestly though mid-october is weeks away not days haha. Good to know maybe able to change dealers when you order.

Maybe, but probably only if the items are "late availability".

A LOT of interesting information in the article. I was actually surprised. And coming directly from the Detroit Free Press via Ford!

I wonder why those of us who signed up for email updates from Ford aren't getting any info like this...we have to scan the Internet looking for articles. lol

This entire article seems to just regurgitate everything that's been out for weeks (and parts of the article seem questionable).
The headline puts me off the worst; "Unexpected Demand..." Really? Ford has been dangling the Bronco out there for years and they think the demand is unexpected?

Ford is probably making a pretty good choice here by making extra stuff available for late delivery. That should help them spread out the builds to make everyone happy.
