The amount whining over this is ridiculous.
These grossly unfair circumstances are an obvious karmic rebalancing of the universe for every idiot who has posted "First!" on Internet forums since 2009. 😂

Black interior is no longer delayed
This makes no difference since those that ordered black already explicitly agreed to not having their FEs arrive late. If anything those people should be happy now that there’s a chance to be scheduled before autumn.

"First" can, and in this case does, mean top-of-the-line or best. Anyone who reserved a FE because they thought it would put them at the front of the line, should simply order some other trim. Anyone who reserved a FE because they wanted the "top-of-the-line" model, should be happy with their selection, regardless of place in line.

The amount whining over this is ridiculous.
Yet here you are.

Some black interiors have already been scheduled

I’m aware. This, again, changes nothing.

When people placed their orders for black interior, Ford set the expectation that their FE wouldn’t be manufactured until late summer/fall. These people should’ve had the expectation that their FE wouldn’t be produced until September or later. So to get angry now that it wasn’t scheduled for June production makes no sense and deserves no pity. They specifically acknowledged that they were fine getting their Bronco’s in autumn which in turn means they were fine with non-FE customers/customers with later timestamps being manufactured first.

If I would of reserved a fe I would be mad also because you would think they were the first off the line.I did reserve a Bronco but late and hopefully it comes in sometime early next year.Look at all the people that bought the limited production 2008 Dodge Challengers that were only going to be so many built and they stored them in there garages thinking these will be worth money some day.Well that backfired and then did only built limited dodge demons with 807 hp and then the next year they came out with a 797 hp version that anyone can buy it just never stops.I am not saying that the fe’s were going to be a collector vehicle but when they first edition you guys should be first.

Ah, I see what you're saying. I agree with that. FWIW I don't know why anyone who reserved an FE expected that they would be first off the line. I sure didn't. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

If you understand the car business dealer allocations were absolutely on your radar. There was zero chance these we’re going to get built and shipped around the country in exact time stamp order. It is physically impossible at the production level and logistically impossible at the shipping/dealer level. You have to understand Fords customers are the dealers, not you.
