19 January 2021, Dealer verifies my order

Here's where it gets weird.....
13 August 2021, email from Ford "you're not getting a 2021, sorry.... stay pumped 2022 ordering opens soon"
30 September 2021, email from Ford, "your 2021 Bronco is scheduled for production week of 6 December! (with a VIN)"
21 November 2021, email from Ford, "We've changed your build week, it's now 13 December (with a DIFFERENT VIN)"

WTF?

It's like.... well.... WTF?

Comments solicited....

MY21 will have a MLxxxxxx VIN. MY22 will be NLxxxxxx

Ya know how they say, "never get a vehicle built on a Monday" - because the assembly people are hung over

And they say, "never get a vehicle built on a Friday" - because the assembly people are all thinking about the weekend.

Wonder what it's gonna be like getting a vehicle built the week before the Christmas shutdown :-(
If it makes you feel better, I started production the Friday before Labor Day weekend. Didn’t finish assembly until the following Tuesday morning after the holiday. 2 months and 2500 miles of problem free ownership. I was worried to death about it at the time.

Well, email still says "2021 Bronco", so... hmmm....

I'm still going with "WTF?"
You can tell the year by looking 10th digit. M is a model year 21 N is a 22
