Nope, just Ford ignoring the concerns of reservation holders yet again.

I am still waiting for Ford to own the truth that they are intentionally screwing over a lot of reservation owners instead of repeating the same lies and half-truths. They are hoping that it will blow over. If not, they may have to create yet another commodity crisis as a distraction.
This video clarifies that original reservation date is still priority for scheduling Broncos for production, in consideration of commodity restrictions.

I think the most important information they provided was that you could change your dealership if you are unhappy with your current dealership due to allocation positioning or other reasons. I would think during price negotiations at reorder if your dealership tells you they want a $10k ADM, then you’re a free agent at that point and can transfer your reservation to a more favorable situation. That is huge.
There was a slight dodge from Tim, that Ford will "try" to help customers change dealers. Sounds like this may not always be possible.

They showed lifting the floor to gain access with the tailgate extended. Looked a bit awkward.
If you elect to add the sliding tailgate, it is only available for 4-door Broncos, and the doors can no longer be stored in the back due to height limitation.

I was gonna say the same further back when this was mentioned. I thought it might of been just me that noticed that. I was left with the feeling this wasn't going to be a dealer moving free for all.

I’ll go watch it again. But he didn’t say you couldn’t and there was at least one “yeah, for sure” from Esteban when the BN dude mentioned changing for any other reason. I hope I’m not wrong.

the bronco raptor is a ford performance product so I think it will be handled like the f150 raptor. Not all special editions vehicles are ford performance products so perhaps you can delay your bronco reservation via “99” and get those vehicles instead.
We will find out soon what ford decides to do.


Thanks for sharing @Raptor911. I enjoyed it. These people are employees not decision makers and I felt did a good job.

interesting they suggested "99" your order to hold out for a special edition. I would think they would handle those orders like the F150 Raptor and leave it up to the dealers???

You’re right. He waffled on the question. I wasn’t watching, but rather listening earlier and that was Jordan from BN that was talking about changing dealers for whatever reason. Suddenly I don’t have. a warm fuzzy about my options if my dealer decides to go full ADM to get me off my build so that he can sell my order to the highest bidder. I don’t think reorders and pricing are going to go well for a lot of us over the next few weeks.

IF you are reserved at the right dealer. As a super late res, I'm sure most of you folks don't care about me, but the facts are Galpin Ford will have received hundreds of hardtop Broncos before Ford ever even considers building mine. I was understanding of getting a 2023 when I first got my reservation, but the idea that I may be a 2025 unless I switch to a dealer who isn't willing to deal is absolutely insane to me.

That is what you call a half-truth or outright lie, depending on your perspective. Dealer allocation is THE priority for 2022. Then commodities. Then whatever Ford prefers to build. Reservation is a priority only in the sense that it is the lowest priority factor, and is only relevant among orders at a specific dealership.

This is the same thing a politician does to defect from having to admit an inconvenient truth. The inconvenient truth is there will likely be 7/14/2020 reservations still waiting for a Bronco while some dealers are receiving dealer stock fully loaded hardtop Badlands.

You lift up the top panel with the slide out extended - as demonstrated in the VIDEO. Maybe you should actually watch the VIDEO.

Also - this was straight from Esteban’s mouth, not Bronco Nation.

No , I trust no one at this point. But this is what was demonstrated in the VIDEO.

Watch the video then come talk to us.
The one thing that piqued my interest was when the top panel was lifted revealing the storage access below. The action itself wasn't that interesting, but what was revealed underneath. Esteban was quick with the pre-production disclaimer. But the paint color under the tailgate storage access didn't match the Eruption Green exterior. We know the Filson Fire rig was a one-off concept that was supposed to be donated/auctioned to benefit the Bronco Wild Fund. But the paint revealed looked like the Filson green to me. We were told at the time that the Filson Fire rig was an oxford white and the Filson green was vinyl wrap accents to complete the look. But somehow the chassis had been sprayed with a color similar. I wonder if this mannequin will pull double duty serving to show off the Eruption Green for now and then transition to a Heritage Edition mannequin.

Here are photos of the slide-out tailgate and the floorpan, if you own a wrench, you can bolt it in.

I like the part where they tell us we are too dumb to understand the allocation formula! Now I'm sure there are some knuckle dragging mouth breathers in the bunch but there may also be a few math professors, physicists, engineers, scientists, etc. Crazy that their formula is soooo complex we can't understand it.

I work as a design/manufacturing consultant, I can say that 100% of the time telling your customers they are too dumb to understand isn't going to be taken well. I believe the truth is they are not willing to release the formula and the data that is needed to calculate the allocations. Saying they cant release that info would go over better than saying we are too dumb to understand it

The thing I got out of it was how price protection will work. I did not know it was based on what trim level you had on order as of Oct 1. So I had a BL so I get a $925 rebate for 2022. Doesn’t matter what model I purchase. Others get less of a rebate based on model that was on order. I had not seen this before.
