Just be honest and transparent with us, Ford.

We’ve lined up to buy a not-cheap suv from you.

We keep getting these cryptic responses when we ask straight forward questions regarding pricing, b&p, timing, etc.

Timelines we’re told, end up missed.

The Bronco is cool, but not playing games and not being flakey with your customers is even cooler.

Few industries if any are working as usual during this worldwide epidemic.

The new Bronco is not a mere refresh of an Explorer or another existing model but rather a truly historic reincarnation of an icon.

I think most will agree that Ford is doing a good job given the circumstances.

"By" includes "the month of" that is how I always interpreted it.
Straight from the online standard Cambridge Dictionary:

---------------------
By is a preposition or an adverb.

By and time
We use by meaning ‘not later than’ to refer to arrangements and deadlines:
They said that the plumber would be here by Monday.
The postman is always here by 11 am.

B&P in September
Order in December
Delivery in Late Spring 2021

Hasn't that always been the message?
There’s the “by September” debacle, changed to “in September”, which could have been clarified earlier. Now with Ford just stating “this fall”.

Many pricing factors have not been disclosed.

etc.

I love Ford vehicles. Most of my vehicles have been Ford vehicles. but their communication feels lacking. Many people want to, or need to, know pricing to start planning. And beyond that, even if we don’t need to know numbers, or time frames, we just want to know some more details, since we plan on being Bronco owners.

If they had said "by Labor Day" or "by September 1st" that would be something..... ;)

Take it to the B&P Thread at least, that way we have one less thread to worry about.

If you’ve never worked in engineering product release, you wouldn’t understand the amount of pre-market surveillance, development time, design obstacles, etc that they’re facing. I think for a project that is still 5 months from shipping, they’re doing pretty good. Maybe they could’ve delayed the announcement of the vehicle, but they probably had some timing applied there. I don’t know. As much as I want to complain about not getting info, I’m just happy they’re releasing the new Bronco and taking our input to some degree. Could’ve easily turned out like the Trailblazer....
