THIS
I hope you guys understand this is like a two lane traffic jam. You can hop in the other lane hoping that you’ll get through it faster, but at the end of the day you have no idea what the obstacle is that’s causing the jam, and the lane you were in could speed up as soon as you leave it. Just keep your res where it’s at and wait until your order gets pulled. Really not worth stressing over but again that’s just my opinion.
And THIS

I went to Burger King one time. I put my order in - I made special requests like no pickles and mustard. The guy behind me got a basic burger and fries. You know what? He got his meal before me. Sure, I thought to myself, "Damn, I was in line first. Where is mine?" Then I got mine. It was exactly what I wanted. I saw the other guy eating his. He got it first. I got what I wanted. I enjoyed it and never thought twice about his burger...

We can't play "It's not fair" with so many unknowns. I am excited to see my first Bronco in the neighborhood. I don't care if its mine as long as I know mine is coming - just the way I ordered it.
Sum up the situation(s) perfectly.

You could have a 7/15 holder at a dealer with a large proportion of early reservation holders, with them being outside of the 30% mark.

And an hour away at a small podunk dealer that didn't get a single reservation until 8/20, and their top 30% will get their Broncos before the 7/15 guy.
That’s what I’m hoping for!! Lol

Did you get fries too though? Maybe that's why he got his first, maybe they were allocating burgers with fries were getting built together, as a package, before what seems like a simpler package. After re-reading your post, I'm wondering if I should move my reservation to Burger King.

I’m with you - I’m July 19 and was hopeful for a summer delivery. Now not optimistic.
Wow! I have a 7/15 and I was thinking the same thing. But I think the bigger issue is going to be for all of us that want a 2dr

And now I'm wondering about changing my reservation? Because if my dealer has been allocated based on the current reservations, then switching my reservation to another dealer won't change their allocation. Since they've already been allocated, it's not going to do me any good.
I don't think any dealer has an actual allocation yet, just an ESTIMATE of what they MIGHT get if they are highly successful in converting pre-sep18 reservations into actual orders. So I assume that switching dealers will affect the actual dealer allocations that are determined after Mar 19.

One day off from getting your Bronco!

Unfortunately, it’s going to be the same for all dealers. First couple days is gonna be all the make it.

Fortunately, there will be a TON of reservations cancelled for whatever reason or delayed for commodities.

That said, no need to stress because there are a lot of factors that will be working in your favor to get your bronco... unless there is a commodity constraint.

That’s the golden question... how many 1st and 2nd day reservations fall off because of cancellations or commodity / option issues. I bet it is a lot.
definitely! I feel like more information will come out once all orders have been entered and stuff too

I would assume so, but the Granger guys are the only ones that can confirm that.
Zack mentioned in another thread that their percentage line up with what other dangers have been saying.

Do we even know how many ressies they even have? If they're getting 30% of the 1500ish they probably have I bet they're getting more than just about anyone else.

As an October reservation I had accepted I'm looking at a 2022 model, which is fine with me, but I can't imagine what someone with a July 16th reservation is feeling.
I am thinking I have too many cars and not enough garage spots already! In my case delay isn't necessarily a bad thing - perfect would be Feb 2022 delivery of a MY22.

Dealers should be made to list their orders vs. their allocations. Be transparent.

Perhaps you are thinking about “sasquatching” your order... if so, they are going to ask you to pull up and park and they will bring them out when they are done - here is a free ice cream cone coupon (FordPass Rewards) for the inconvenience.

I love how Ford looked at the number of reservations they had and how many cars they could produce this year to give dealers a general idea on allocations assuming every reservation converted and suddenly that's the set in stone number for everyone here.

Let me say that again: Ford has no idea how many orders they will get and no idea what options those orders will have to get an accurate number now. They literally looked at their production estimate and divided by reservations to give all their dealers a ballpark figure.

The actual allocation will not be available until April or May. There is no point in flipping out over the 30% number right now. It's not some plot by Ford. It's just their best guess.
