well... if there's 3000 ford dealers and lets say the average reservation was 50 reservations... that would be 150,000. I would say that's a realistic number in my opinion.

Nice that there is a surge and all, but give us some numbers dammit!

For all we know a surge is 20k reservations. Or maybe it's 80k or 120k... well what is it?
If you look at the reservations list posted on the top, you can see that the latest reservation done on 7/20 shows a confirmation number of 311,000...now that is what I have been going based on, not sure how accurate that is.

SanTan Ford is my dealer of choice. Not surprised to see them getting 500+ reservations. They are very popular out in my area.

I did a real quick run through on the reservation table and the lowest reservation # I saw was 10083003 and the highest was 10316028 which would lead me to believe about 233k reservations if they're in order.

I disregarded the outliers as there were many reservations listed that didnt have the same # of digits.

Also how many folks reserved more than one Bronco before knowing models can be changed during the ordering process? My local dealer was actually recommending this option to folks before Ford released their statement. The total number of reservations is artificially high.

Woody Anderson Ford here in Huntsville, AL told me they had over 200 reservations when I asked. Lots of interest, but I can't imagine everyone of those reservations turning into actual orders.

So, let's say a dealer has 50% of their orders cancelled. What keeps that dealer from hand picking a few of those to NOT cancel and take as stock to sell to walk-ins?

You think they would buy off the customers to not cancel and get their $100 back?

I bet it is up there at least....Jeep sells North of 220,000 Wranglers per year. The last competitor targeted at it (Toyots FJ Cruiser) sold around 60k per year for the first 2 years out....and this Bronco is a MUCH more appealing direct competitor. It will sell over 100k units easily in year one based on that, so reservations have to be way up there above that, assuming a big cancellation rate anyway.

I would if I was a dealer and was looking at a year before I start getting any to sell for a premium.

I think this would work on orders cancelled after the build and the customer then cancels. My salesman told exactly that if I decide the Bronco doesn't work for me. From what I see in the rules, the dealer is free to set their own pricing and terms. Ford can't tell them what to do with that vehicle.

my dealer in mckinney tx reported to me that he is dealing with 400+ reservations but could not distinguish between reg and sport so it may these high numbers may be coming from adding the two together.
