Have they given you any info on that price protection? I might want to switch to Outer Banks SAS from Wildtrak, but with all the same packages. Any idea if that will mess up my price protection?The original info I have from Ford is, and I have not seen anything to the contrary, you must have a timestamp prior to Sept 18 2021 to get scheduled to be built in 2021. That being said, these customers stating that they just put in an order, were they already a 99 with prior-to 9/18 timestamps and decided to go ahead and place an order? I have not seen where this is against any plans/policies by Ford. True, they just submitted their real order, but, the actual order was priority 99'd back months ago, so they were in the system even though they didn't configure the order.
Now, if there's people with brand new reservations or post 9/18 reservations getting their Broncos, this, I cannot understand nor comment on because that's a Ford policy decision.
As far as those without VINs, yes, from my understanding, you will need to re-order and I have plans in place to 1) notify you of the pending opening of 22 order banks and 2) calling you to get the new configuration/order. As for timing, my gut says Oct 1, but it may be a bit later than that. Again, no real info from Ford, I just know it's going to be in the 4th Quarter.
As for the $1000 - that's "up to" $1000 and that's a reimbursement from Ford. We have to work on the program and make sure that Ford will reimburse for whatever, if anything, we decide to do with that promotion as we're working on a very slim margin.
