I'm unofficially out. I think Ford is just too much of a mess to even consider at this point. I am a Ford guy too. I traded a 2019 Ranger (That was preceded by a 2016 F-150 which followed a 2008 F-150) with small "teething" issues that no dealer would resolve on a 2020 Edge ST that has been at the dealer for 45 days out of our 4 months of ownership over a drive line clunk. Love the thing if it just worked as intended. We're gonna try for a buy back on the Edge, but are likely stuck with it for another year or two. We have a really nice F-150 loaner, but I think Ford seriously mis engineered the rear leaf (parabolic) springs just like they did on the Ranger, so I am ordering a Ram. I really think Ford's priority is in duping stock holders and not satisfying customers. Lightning, Maverick and Bronco reservations exceeded expectations!! Too bad they can't build them. No matter what happens, I'll always be a Ford guy who grew up bouncing around on late 70's and early 80's F-150 bench seats. I am just not letting brand loyalty influence my decision on this current state at Ford. They are lost.

1) The new design MIC has been in the works for months
2) Can we officially call it the Ford Broncfaux?
3) Price protection until MY23 (Sept 2022 I assume) tells me the unspoken truth, that's when this will be resolved
4) The push for 4 door BB was the nail in the coffin.
5) I'm glad that the P1 "Skip the line" VIP's got shitty tops.
Ok, no longer bitter.

Hopefully this isn't as big of a disaster as 'We're changing our hard top supplier and the new tops won't be available until 2023'.
I'm thinking this will be the announcement and sadly, that could end up just as bad......

As one of many "in production" purgatory people that likely has a Bronco in that video, I'm not sure I have enough booze for a painful message.

They have to pay the UAW anyway. They’re going to figure out a way to make 10,000 big bend soft tops for dealer stock.
Hey what's wrong big bend soft top lol

I am very curious to see what happens to people who had soft tops ordered but were still waiting to be scheduled. Whole situation is a mess

I really wish I could get off this ride but the Bronco is my only option, I can't settle for a Jeep or any other trash out there.
I might go test drive one this weekend, depending on how the news goes this week.
