Glad the 2dr is off that list!

I'm surprised by the chip shortage comment, unless Ford is talking them from other vehicles for the already mostly guaranteed Bronco orders.
Apparently the reason there is a chip shortage is in large part because auto manufactures anticipated lower new car sales so they ordered fewer chips… but it turns out demand was just as high.

Perhaps they didn’t low ball the chips for the Bronco, or they were ordered before Covid hit and they thought car sales would be down.

Considering all two doors have hard hard tops they are still on the list.

Any Ford employees who ultimately made the logistical decisions leading to Bronco not being affected by the chip shortage should be getting a FAT bonus. Like “retire early” type bonus.
