Until about a week ago, I was able to track my Bronco. My original build date was 6/14 but kept getting pushed back. My current build date is 11/1. For some reason, I am unable to track it now. It says my order number/vin is invalid. Ive emailed the General Manager but its midnight. Y'all are extremely good at providing information so I figured I would ask here to kind of be armed with information when I get an email back from the GM.

P.s. Ive been in contact with the General Manager of my dealership. He advised me that since I was an early reservation, to keep my hardtop. He doesn't seem to have done anything shady. He has given me signed price agreements (a new one every time a change has been made), has shown me his computer with all the orders, codes and where I was at. I own a pretty high profile business in my small town, GM quote "Im just as excited for you to get this Bronco, it will be great advertising for me when you drive it around." I just been reading about all the shady things dealers have been doing to people and I just dont want to get screwed over somehow.
There has only been 2 delivered Broncos at his dealerships (both soft tops). 1 was a few months ago and the other this week.

So when I entered my order number as listed on my reservation on my account at the ford website it didn’t work, but when I called my dealership they gave me a different number with only four digits as my order number, when I entered that in it worked. I hope that helps you too!!

Was this recent? My number has been working since June.

This was just today, and I hadn’t checked before, so I’m not sure if it applies to your situation. Maybe worth a try though!

I also have a 4 digit order number assigned by my dealer and a 8 digit order number from ford. I use the shorter 4 digit number on the tracker and have done so since the beginning.

The site has been having intermittent issues that I have seen for a couple weeks, works, returns nothing, says invalid, etc.

I have made many posts documenting if you want to look at my profile to see them.

I even had the tracker show me a maverick order for someone else.

Unless you hear from your dealer, you are still on 11/1.

I was concerned last week, but it coincided with MY22 order bank opening when I noticed the issues. Hope this helps.
