I am seriously worried about a lot of ya'll making it until next summer without a heart attack.

A dealer note is posted that tentatively sets a dealer training window of Mach to May. By then Ford will be able to address ANY Bronco specialist question with FACTS and have production Broncos.. not a bunch of unknowns, pre-production units and potentially give information that may change.

All three training target months are prior to the currently announced first deliveries in June.

However when that dealer note percolates through your brain...something seems to get lost in translation and suddenly it is extrapolated to mean 'delivery is getting further and further away'. Quite the mental jump in logic there.

I'm in Austin and know my way around offroad vehicles. I've helped train newbies and done many official dealership training workshops for a brand I won't name but you can figure out. I wonder if they need local offroad trainers here in Austin. :)

It would be interesting to see the list of which dealers are interested in this.
Most manufactures require dealers to be trained to a certain level before they can Even have the cars to sell. Not sure how that Plays in this scenario.
also curious about the guy doing the pre delivery inspecton and accessory install. I’d like him go know something as well.
Lastly, I think we’re gunna have to accept the fact everything in the world is delayed right now, I don’t think the bronco can be any different, Believe me I’m about to wet my pants too. But I think we’re just gunna have to figure out the wait.

You see the big picture. All of these date changes portend the Build and Price (B&P) feature on the Ford.com website will be delayed. I easily predict that the B&P feature will be pushed into November of this year. Ford is very comfortable with the level of corporate competency (however low that may get) and excuse making that is reflected in the inability to meet stated timelines. Ford is Lucy and we are Charlie Brown.

They don't need specialists to sell to anyone on this forum, this training will be for after reservations get fulfilled. Let's not spark panic here.

your manager knows about it and they will need to sign you up for it...the program is not close to inexpensive...
Yes I just spoke to them and I have been signed up.....the only crappy thing is with being in Nova Scotia Canada is having to do the whole 2 week quarantine wherever the hell I go ahaha...hopefully one of these gets put on up north here closer to home

Im hoping there's a public Off Roadeo in Canada but even if there is (which I doubt) I can almost guarantee it ain't gonna be in the Atlantic Bubble. Ha

The "Bronco Specialist" at my dealer knows nothing. Knows nothing about the trims, options, pricing. Nothing.
That‘s funny right there! My reserving dealer is like “ you mean there are TWO new Broncos. I‘ll be driving to WV for mine in all probability.

I'm the Bronco Specialist for my dealership. I'm on the forum everyday looking for new information. I also have my reservation in. I cant speak for others but I take pride in my product knowledge. My GM just told me I'm going! He was shocked when I knew what he was talking about. I told him I saw it on here lmao!
