My only concern with this is if, and only if, they add a few colors or options we've been begging for in the 22 MY. They kind of alluded to that being a possibility for those later on the reservations list. Perhaps that was mentioned with this move in mind.
If you wait for 22, why not wait for 23 when things change again? They might even do a refresh by then. The point is waiting for the next big thing will have you waiting forever.

So there's going to be no differences between the two model years? Because either way, you're placing your order in January, regardless of when you reserved.
There are always differences. Build 150,000 2021 broncos, receive feedback, make improvements. A 2022 should be a better model than a 2021.

The $100 was only for the reservation. When it comes time to order, expect to put a deposit down--generally, non-refundable--to place your order. Should you choose not to purchase your Bronco when it arrives, plan not to get that deposit back.

If your Bronco arrived differently-configured than what you ordered, you could get your deposit back and probably qualify for a new order placing you in line for quick production, but if you simply change your mind or can't get financed, the dealer doesn't have to return your deposit. The deposit is because the dealer then has to assume the risk of selling the vehicle. Being a Bronco in hot demand, if you weren't able to purchase it because of a hardship issue, you likely could get your deposit back from a decent dealer, since they should be able to sell it within a day.

So, the $100 really only differentiates someone who is likely to consider ordering one from someone who just thinks they're cool and doesn't mind being on a "no obligation" list. Order time is what separates the men from the boys. 😄 Put up or shut up. Put your money where your mouth is. Etc. :LOL:
All of the big ones: Granger SAC etc, and pretty much all the dealers offering deals are not requiring any more than the $100. You may be right when it comes to the smaller dealerships / ones without an online presence in the community though. Personally I wish every dealer would require $1000, so that we DONT end up with hundreds of canceled orders and getting delayed from them.

Ok, So someone with a October res needs to check and say if it says 2022 on their model year.
It's going to say 2021. Ford JUST announced this.
For those of you saying they scrubbed the 2021 date off that is not accurate or at least it still shows 2021 for me, but I reserved mine on 07/14/20.

I have a 10/01 reservation, and it still says 2021. I'm not surprised; they have stated that there have been way more reservations than expected, so when they first built the reservation system, they were expecting to fulfill all reservation orders in the 2021 model year. I'm sure they'll update the website.

But when I made my reservation I was fully expecting and hoping for to to be a 2022 MY since it likely won't be delivered until late 2021 at the earliest. I'm glad they've clarified that. 2022 MY means less depreciation, more kinks worked out, and more options. Probably also a price increase, but doubt that it would be more than a few hundred dollars, and should be offset by the difference in resale value.

I reserved on 9/19. Pretty sure I can count on a 10% price hike. If so, F Ford, I’m out.
So you're out without even bothering to see what your price will be? Sounds like you were never really in. The only thing you have to lose by waiting until order time to decide whether you are in or out is the interest on $100. In three months, that's not even a nickel in the average account these days.

This great news. Fence sitting has consequences. I personally hedged my bets by placing order 7/14 and 10/2. I may go with a first year with meh colors or may buy the Tan/Olive MY22. I have choices because of my choices and I will live with my choices.
I sound old...like I have to earn my choices.
Not quite sure that is hedge betting. By the time you know MY22 features and options your 7/14 reservation would have expired.

The only thing, personally, I'd consider waiting for is a proper shade of green. Otherwise, I'm pretty set as far as equipment.

You missed the word “IF” which is critical to the meaning of my post.

Except that the order period is still end of January and that is when you will solidify the pricing with the dealers. Doubtful that the dealers would really put up with having to process a very large of special orders with differing price lists. Absolutely possible but I think it is far off.
Order period ends January 31st for which reservations? Those before Sept 18th or all reservations? Ford didn't say anything about that yet.

“So we knew that we couldn’t fill all the reservations, but we continued taking them for a month in the hopes that this somehow could mean more sales for us and our dealer network.”

lol

Clowns.
This is probably the dumbest thing I have seen on bronco6g, yet. At no point has Ford suggested they cannot fill every order; and anyone who thought every order would be filled prior to 2022 has either not been paying attention or is willfully ignorant.

Granger and Stephenson are both offering the Bronco at $1300 under invoice if you qualify for X-plan.

Other dealers, will be charging a markup. You switch dealers to save money.
Grainger is $2000 under invoice, I think?

No, no they didn't. For once in my life I am being somewhat optimistic. Hey, if I end up being wrong then I'm getting a good deal on a slightly higher priced machine with a slightly different feature set than the 21s. And when the $$$ is finalized I will make whatever hard choice at that time. If I believe that I'm getting a serious shafting then I'll just buy another set of tires for the Crown Vic and keep driving it. I have faith that my dealer of choice will do the "right" thing by the customer.
