Just got off the phone with Ford Marketing 800-334-4375 and was told you must order the Bronco Model showing in the order banks as of 10-01-21 to receive price protection.
You can NOT use the "Coupon" to apply to another Model say "Outer Banks coupon on a Wildtrak" at time of formalizing the 2022 order.

Looks like I will may be in the market for a Jeep.
That's literally the exact opposite of what the email memo says...I will take the memo as correct before some random $10hr person that answers phones.

My Bronco arrived yesterday safe and sound to my home in Central Illinois. Stephens had it shipped and I can't say enough for the great help from the Stephens team-John, Rob, Tanis, Andrew and Tina. This was actually the first Bronco I've seen and have to say it exceeded my wildest expectations. Ford and Stephens have knocked it out of the park with this amazing vehicle. Happy Trails!

I don't see the issue. What are we melting the phone lines down over? You didn't have your dealer change your order and we're supposed to be mad? What if the increase in MSRP is higher on Outer Banks than Wildtrak? Do we melt down the phone lines on your behalf to apologize for melting down the phone lines when we thought you were a victim? You need to get us all on the same page to melt them down for you.....
The issue in my case is that the original OBX res was converted to a deferred OBX order despite the fact I had notified John that I wanted mine to be a BL. His response was that due to the volume, they were simply entering all as they originally were, and we'd be able to change it when the new order banks opened up. That made sense at the time b/c everyone assumed that price protection meant just that - in fact, Ford's language about price protection seemed geared toward saying that if you ordered in 21 and deferred to MY22, pricing would not increase for you, regardless of trim levels.

However, now Ford says you get a credit based on the amount of price increase for specific trims. OBX gives a credit of $250, whereas the BL increased $825. So my price increase for the BL is $575 (825 - 250). That's not a gigantic amount in the grand scheme, but it's not what was communicated, either. I could have wasted John's time by demanding he change my order in the system to a BL and I'd be good now, but the dealers and customers understood from Ford that the issue was whether you had an order in the system, not that the trim level mattered.

Yeah, I am in the same boat as I am changing my OBX to a Wildtrack, but since my rez was placed shortly after ford's 9/15 cut off for MY21 builds I was 99ed and told to make all changes when I went to put my 22 order in 🤷🏼‍♀️.
While Stephen's certainly didn't do this on purpose to anyone it still sucks just a tiny bit...these vehicles are expensive enough already....

These vehicles are actually fairly cheap given today's market. Call around and try to buy a TRD Off Road, or TRD Pro 4 Runner. Everyone is charging $5k, $10k or more over sticker. Your price has been guaranteed by Ford and you are still moaning?

Personally, I have ZERO sympathy for folks in your situation. Everyone had since July 2020 to study/ponder/analyze the different trim levels and reserved/ordered based on this. Ford cannot be expected to give discounts to people who "wanted" one trim, but actually reserved something else.

It is great to finally meet someone who has never changed their mind one time in life, you must be an amazing story teller at parties.

Any rough estimate of how many 2022 allocations you will receive against current reservations?

I change my mind like everyone else, but I also accept responsibility for and consequences of my action/decisions.
