What are the chances of someone backing out of a custom order that arrives at a dealer lot?

If you are looking for a 4 door, you will have luck but 5k is the lowest ADM I have seen. I am currently doing the same, but I want a 2 door manual. I found 2 this week, but in both cases they wanted 8-10k over MSRP. One was even a GM order for a friend who backed out. The GM put 400 miles on it and then was asking $10k over.......

Another month or so and things will begin to loosen up, IMO.

Over the past two weeks, I have been hunting Ford Bronco Badlands at all local dealerships that come in. My hope is that someone who ordered backs out.

What are the chances of this happening for those who have any experience? I am looking to trade in my 2021 Ford Bronco Sport Badlands (w/ Badlands package & towing capability). Wanting to know if I should keep up my effort or waive the white flag. Thanks!
It happens more frequently than you think, but there are over 3000 Ford dealers in the US. I'd keep looking, but just know with you being a possible out-of-state buyer, some dealers will mark you up and some wont.

Good luck on the search, don't drive yourself crazy over a vehicle though! :)

I had a soft top Badlands that I didn't take delivery of because my hard top Badlands got built.

Oh wow that is nuts! Kinda shocked you got a hard-top before a soft-too. Just curious, how long did you go hunting for before you found one?

That’s how I got my 22 2.7 4dr Badlands. A guy ordered it hard loaded w/o SAS and didn’t take it when it arrived. I was the fourth call the dealer made. I feel extremely fortunate!!! and lucky.

Best place to watch is the Facebook groups, usually a couple posted every day. I paid $5k over and was very happy to get that deal.

Most of the rejected broncos have crappy dealer gimmicks so I don't the dealers morals.

My Big Ben was a canceled order. Anything is possible. Especially with all the inflation and market turmoil.

Any chance you could drop the name of that FB group?
