It doesn't make sense because it's referring to the black painted top, not the MIC. The black painted top is late availability.Wait, so if I order and just get the soft top, no delay
If I order and just get the MIG top, no delay
If I order both, delay...
Does that make zero sense to anyone else?
DoesMore bad news....
This article has been updated with new information that has been confirmed to Bronco Nation by Ford Motor Company, namely, that the dual top option for the 2021 Ford Bronco has now been categorized as “Late Availability”.
Bronco brand has announced some important news related to roof options on the 2021 Bronco 2-door and 4-door models, confirming to Bronco Nation that the option for a dual top will now be late availability.
As reported previously, the top two series, the First Edition and Wildtrak™ models will only be available at launch with molded‑in‑color hardtops. The black‑painted modular hardtop roof, which was previously standard, will now be a late‑availability option for the 2021 model year, and will be offered to Wildtrak™ and First Edition series customers who are willing to wait.
As a result of this change, the MSRP of these models will be reduced by $1,895, the full retail price of the black painted modular hardtop option. Removeable driver and passenger first row and second row sections as well as the rear cap functionality (see Figure 1) remains to provide open air driving. 2-Door open air driving can be achieved by removing the front section (see Figure 2).

Bronco 2‑ and 4‑door reservation holders will be given the choice of taking the mold-in-color option when the order conversion process begins in December. Alternatively, reservation holders can choose to wait for the black-painted modular hard top when it comes available. In addition to the black painted finish, the modular top allows for the removal of the rear-quarter glass in Bronco 2- and 4-doors models and on 2-door models only, adds another panel to the rear cap.
Bronco brand has indicated that initial reservation time stamp will continue to be honored. We are not sure what this will do for those choosing to wait except to ensure your place in line.

Yeah, it's literally the title of the thread and people are still missing it.So this is the same news as before as far as the mod top goes....plus an added kicker that if you want a dual top - MIC plus soft top (nothing to do with the mod top fiasco) that is ALSO late availability. Ha! Not sure if anyone noticed that. This is another half step backwards.
You are correct sir. You 4dr guys can either get soft top or a MIC top immediately, BUT if you want both it will be considered LATE AVAILABILITY!So this is the same news as before as far as the mod top goes....plus an added kicker that if you want a dual top - MIC plus soft top (nothing to do with the mod top fiasco) that is ALSO late availability. Ha! Not sure if anyone noticed that. This is another half step backwards.
