That's quite a change. I've seen a few articles online proclaiming 230k and quoting a Ford source. Perhaps Ford realized throwing a huge number like that out there will discourage a lot of people from reserving instead of building hype? At least at 150k, people may think there's still hope.
Most of the reports were citing this forum.

According to Ford, the Wayne plant can produce 5,300 units per week. If Ford splits production to 60% bronco and 40% ranger, they should be able to produce 3180 Broncos per week. So if there were 230K reservations, but only about 70% will be orders that is 161K vehicles. It will take about 51 weeks to produce all of the reservations. If the true reservations is 150K and 70% are real orders, it will take 33 weeks to produce all reservations. I heard Ford planned to do the 60/40% split when they introduced the Bronco. Not sure if that will truly happen.

I agree with all of this. Very unlikely that Ford would share a number with analysts that includes duplicate within same household. In fact, I think there is almost no way they would do that, it’s clearly misleading. But duplicate orders can’t explain 80,000 difference.
Total reservations (including cancellations) vs active reservations, duplicates and - another point about being an enthusiast forum - remember these?

The Bronco sport reservations are surely included in that total as well.

Everyone needs to just chill out a bit. 🤪

Great. Now all those formulas trying to figure out how many Broncos could be produced each shift, each day, each month, divided by the moon phase, multiplied by the average temperature will have to be re-calculated.

No, they are not allowed to do that
Hypothetical Question. Would you let your dealer "rent" your new 2021 for a month to show it off in his showroom - starting with the day it arrived? How much would it cost him?

I highly doubt that many people have 2 reservations though.
The way dealerships are going to try to screw us, I don't doubt that many double reservations at all. Only talking 200 refundable dollars. I'm really surprised everyone didn't put in 2 reservations to increase leverage.

At 150K, I still think that transforms to less than 75K orders.

I had Zero intention of reserving two until the infamous website fiasco... and if I thought of it as a way to protect myself so did most of the other people. And because of the continued poor way in which its being handled, most of us are still hanging onto those two.

You combine that with how much time still has to pass before we order and how life changes, needs change. Budgets become the driving factor.

Just so many things that will drive that number down from the 150K.

Don't get me wrong, I still think 150K is super impressive for something no one really knew much about before 7/13. I personally, saw the reveal and my doubt was erased.

Kudos to Ford and especially the team that worked on the Bronco. I still just wish that corporate would dedicate some serious resources to tightening up their act from here on out.

Plus the lower number gives more hope to people who reserved late, and those who haven't reserved at all. I am honestly happy for them. No one wants to wait for calendar year 2022 to get their Bronco.

Good one.

Hands on (can get in your vehicle) — Probably no amount (within reason). You could have 100 people or more a day getting in and out

Roped off — would depend greatly on time of year. Winter - I’d probably go pretty cheap - particularly if I liked my dealer (which I’m probably not doing this if I don’t like the dealer). $500 say. Good weather months way tougher - maybe $1,000.

What are others sell out price?

To those with multiple reservations for different trims, did you reserve both at same dealership or different?

Good thing car stealerships are well known for never doing anything unscrupulous.
Go read the dealer threads. The dealers on this forum don’t think they can get away with it but maybe you’re right and they are lying to us. We will see at launch.

Don't forget the calculation for the length of the shadows.... :D
