Thanks for the reply — helpful. So if you have a reservation (with a timestamp), priority code doesn’t factor in (as long as it’s less than 99).Priority code applies to retail orders with no time stamp. They are the last priority they look at. #1 dealer allocation, #2 build constraints, #3 if you pass the above two, do you have a reservation time step and where does that put you in the line of orders from a given dealer #4 priority code, if you don’t have #3 and the dealer has allocation but no #2’s that can be built they start pecking away at #4 priorities to determine build order.
#1 and #2 are biggest issues. I can understand historical allocation but it appears early on dealers were able to get allocated based on the amount of bronco orders being placed…but I think some dealers loaded in tons of orders saying they would get more allocations. This upset the allocations other dealers were assigned so they had to reset. So a dealer that was getting 20 a month May now be getting 5….and everyone is waiting. On top of that are constraints so some are in a long line but folks are breaking in line because they have a buildable package. I’m guessing your in the #1 or #2 bucket or both. Most would have probably been better served going down to their local dealer vs jumping on the bandwagon with dealers saying they could get you a bronco fast.
Yep, I have a couple of items that have historically been constrained (2.7, SAS), but haven’t seen any updates on those in a while.
The most annoying part was the dealer selection process. I had never bought a Ford (and still may not), so was a bit tricky having to pick a dealer on the spot.
Turns out that dealer sucked, so I did research here and picked a better one and moved. Better not because he’s cheaper, but didn’t seem to be a total douche.
Then the allocations came out and I got punished again as a result of Ford’s awful process.
