I was browsing my local dealers this morning like I always do after being disappointed at the lack of movement on my order that i placed on 1/27/21 (the dealer sat on my order for 5 days because i ordered on the 22nd), and I came across a build similar to mine. I ordered a Race Red Big Bend 7 speed hard top. This one that I found this morning is a Race Red 7 speed Soft top (no thanks)
So I looked at the Window Sticker and punched in the VIN and order number into the tracker and saw that it was ordered on 2/15. That's the latest I've seen on a build date yet. Every VIN i've looked up so far has had an order date earlier than mine.
The VIN on this one is 1FMDE5BH4MLA73276 and order number is 6515 if you want to look it up.
New 2021 Ford Bronco For Sale in Waterford near West Bloomfield, Auburn Hills, Pontiac MI & Commerce Township | VIN: 1FMDE5BH4MLA73276 (suburbanfordofwaterford.com)

Also, i noticed that the BO bar isn't a BO bar anymore. They raised it so that it doesn't cover the RONC. That's maybe the one thing Ford fixed so far.

Has anyone else gotten their Bronco and ordered in mid February or later?

Order date has no bearing* on when your vehicle gets built. Reservation time stamp is the primary factor, followed by dealer allocation and build constraints.

So when did you reserve your Bronco?


*As long as it was before the March 19th date.

That is how it is supposed to be, but how do we know? Because this thing sure ain’t running the way it is supposed to be …

That's definitely not how it works. People who reserved their Bronco on the first day, or in the first hour still haven't gotten any hint that their vehicle is being built, even when some built vehicles match their specifications.
If it was truly based on reserve date and time, then someone with a day 1 reservation could order a Bronco today, and be moved to the front of the line. That is not happening.

I've been saying, reservations mean nothing now. Nothing. OK, maybe 1 notch above nothing but no more. Supply allocations and your build are all that matter.

What is a search function.
The bull bar used to cover the letters R, O, N, and C before, leaving just the B and O on the ends.

Short for the bull bar because it covers everything except the B and the O on the front grille haha.

Bull Bar does not necessarily indicate a BO bar. A BO (prounced Bee-Oh) bar only indicates those bars that cover the RONC (prounced Ronk). The original bull bars were BO bars. The new ones, would not fall in that category. Would you like me to search google for both versions for you?

Order dates (for orders placed by 19 March) have no bearing in the build/allocation model.
