I have a 6/30 blend date, this was after 3 or 4 production changes. Got the Built email first of July then my Bronco was sent to Dirt Mountain, then crickets until September and got an email saying it’s built (Again) and expected delivery to my dealer between 10/6 and 10/12 Now dealer says they haven’t seen it yet and the Ford Rep says it’s delayed and expected on 10/27. Something is up and I don’t know what.

My buddy ordered a Jeep Gladiator Mojave on day after Labor Day and it just arrived lol

Maybe it got destroyed in transport and you've got a new replacement coming. (I'm joking)

Probably just got delayed because of weather, NBD. If it was December then I'd worry

Maybe your buddy that ordered the Gladiator kidnapped your Bronco.

Hate to say it, but "my dealer said" that Ford is still having trouble with the MIC 2.0 tops.

Dirt Mountain 2.0

OR.... since you say your's was built in July it is affected by the Airbag recall that affected about 500 units built in July and August and so it is now waiting for the replacement. Ford has already stated that those units will be held until replacement and even ones that have been delivered to dealerships can't be sold until the airbag is replaced in them.

Welcome to the land of no communication and constant speculation.

The sad truth is that Ford knows exactly where your truck is what it's waiting on. They have the VIN, all the module info, and likely a checklist of what it takes to complete.

But they won't tell us. Gotta love that.

We all thought it was bad communication, but this is looking more and more deliberate. My belief has been there is still a serious production problem that has not been disclosed.

Reasons I think this:

1. No reason to mix things up with allocations if Ford can fill a big percentage of the orders this year. (Language from Ford WAS that most 21 orders would be filled in 21, I have not seen any similar language that there is any expectation of deliveries in 22.)

2. When Ford thinks it can produce Broncos in an acceptable timeframe, we will get some kind of build estimate.

3. All of the leaks about production have stopped (I am guessing Ford shut this down with extreme prejudice).

Ford is the only entity that knows all of the dealer allocations and what is going on with commodities. They obviously know know by now so until they provide some build estimates, it means they believe the timeframe is not palatable to order holders.

This should be even more true for people with a VIN.
