I just read a post that was shut down about a 2.3 turbo is bad from the factory. The truck sat on the mountain waiting for parts. Got me to thinking. Do you get a notice that your truck was built, put in a Ford lot waiting for chips, etc., or do they not notify you until it is ready to ship? How do you know it was sitting in a Ford lot waiting?

Ford never told anyone, we (B6G and others) had people in the area recon and find them. They have quite a few storage lots within 10-15 miles of the plant.

I guess you know that, just saw you're in Michigan... 😂

Most stayed in production status or were told by dealer they were on chip hold from what I have read. Conclusions can be drawn if you stay in production over a week.

I believe the two options that show up in the tracker would be ‘in production’ followed by ‘awaiting shipment’. If your vehicle is on hold I don’t believe it states that (someone correct me if I’m wrong).

I’m one of those that was in production since January 19th and received my built email last week. Mine is one of many that sat on a lot while others after our build week were shipped out. It’s been a bit frustrating.

What do you mean? A negative post about a Bronco or something questioning a way F0rd is handling a situation gets locked or deleted.......... NEVER!!!! :censored::censored:

Actual manufacture time for a Bronco or Ranger from start to finish is about one and a half shifts.

So, if your Bronco is "in production" for more than a couple days, that means it is likely missing parts and parked somewhere.

I don't know where mine sat, but it did sit for 2 1/2 months. I got information that it was built and just said waiting on shipping for the next 2 /12 months then one day said shipped, the day after said delivered.

That sounds like you were on convoy hold.
