Like many others, my first thought was WTF. We've got people who reserved in the first month waiting until late 22 to get theirs, and we're going to start shipping them overseas?

But, perhaps Ford should clarify what they mean by 'launch'. By some accounts, they launched the Bronco in the US back in July when they revealed trim levels and started taking reservations. We already know Ford often isn't very precise with their language in public communications.

I'd be fine with them starting that process overseas while filling the existing orders in NA.
My sentiment exactly. How dare Ford send 'our' Broncos overseas before we get them!

Wonder if Ford will use the reservation system over there? How do you think that is going to work out?!

This is hopefully bullshit - unless they are talking reserved units, then don’t sent them, unless they are the preproduction units slated to be wrecked anyway. At least MY21 should belong to the US only... damn

Do you, Joe Sixpack, really think you stand a chance of getting one before the Saudi Prince? The beauty is, you'll never know that he got your FE. Your ordered Bronco fell off the train, another 6 months to build another. Then you'll get it unless Brad Pitt wants it. You're a no name wanting to pay MSRP, good luck.

Ford Bronco Launches In The Middle East This Summer

Today, Ford confirmed that the Bronco will launch in the Middle East this summer, which just so happens to be the same time frame it will launch in the U.S. It’ll be interesting to see just how many Broncos are earmarked for the region, as Ford will only be able to fill around one-third of its reservations in the U.S.

Ford did not specify which trim levels of the new Bronco would be available in the Middle East, but did mention both the Badlands and Wildtrak in its release. It also notes that the Sasquatch Package will be available as standard equipment on those two trims and that both two- and four-door configurations will be available.

Buyers can choose from both Ford’s 2.3L EcoBoost I-4 and 2.7L EcoBoost V6. However, it appears that the seven-speed manual will not be available in the region, as Ford noted that both engines “come fitted with Ford’s incredible 10-speed automatic transmission.”
Damn, those Broncos are most likely gonna start at over $60k after tariffs and shipping. That's a lot of bone saws worth!

A Saudi embassy orderly has already outbid everyone for the FE, 😂

All I can say is FORD better fill all reservation order holders currently in the que...FIRST!!!!! To start selling and producing for elsewhere is utter BS. With about 110,000 orders now (us)....they could have them all built by August 2022. So get on it! Why are we hearing that some of us long term reservation and order holders may not even get ours in 2022?????????????????? Yet....you are going to produce for other Countries and Dealer Stock ?!

It will be like MachE. 5k built a month but only 1500 sent to North America, great for dealers who want to add $10k markup

The can get 50k ADM there (and Ford proper likely gets a cut), but I am sure that has nothing to do with it....
