How can Ford introduce the F150 Lightning and the “more of road capable” Explorer when they can’t even a produce the product they have 100,000 + orders for. I can only shake my head in disbelief.

I agree, Ford only has 10 employees, I don't know how they get it all done.

I know. It's weird how a Fortune 10 multi-billion dollar company could be working on more than one major product at a time.

Last I checked, the Lightning isn't due for ordering until fall for a Spring '22 delivery. I feel like Broncos ordered this past January through March will be delivered by then.

Ford can do many things and build many different vehicles. Relax...

I can see where you're coming from. Of course Ford is a huge company and can design, market, and build multiple vehicles in parallel but with the delays and uncertainty of the Bronco, it's interesting and maybe even a good thing for us that they think they can make a bunch of other new cars soonish. With the chip shortage and distribution constraints, you'd think they might've delayed the reveal or ordering or whatever on these new things until the Bronco constraints weren't a problem. That said, maybe the Bronco constraints aren't as intense as this forum snowballs/hypes them to be. Again though, the way scheduling and everything has been communicated and perceived by us, it feels like they're gonna build and deliver like 10k Broncos this year lol. Didn't some Intel exec say that the chip problem won't be fixed for a few years? So how do they plan to have enough parts and chips and all that for other brand new releases? 🤷‍♂️ idk

I heard that the great Army of the Undead, the White Walkers and their Wights, has breached the Northern Wall, and that the Wildlings are unable to stop them. One of the dragons has joined them. Will the alliance of the 7 Kingdoms be able to stop them? In time for the 2022 model year release? Or will all the armys of the South be unable to find the computer chips needed to keep their Ford Dragons operating?

Wait, A breed of horse called a Bronco is delayed at the Western Wall. The Army of the East, riding their Mustangs, is speeding to the rescue. Will the Mustangs and the Broncos save the day? Will the 1,000 year old mines in the bowels of the earth, dug before time was recorded, find the secret storehouse of "Chips", the only weapons that work, freeing the armies of the 7 kingdoms to defeat the White Walkers?

Will the Lightning from the ancient War Horse, Eff One Fifty, help the army save the day? What will save us from this LONG WINTER OF DESPAIR?

It's easy. They push vehicles out now and recall them later. Lol
