Since Ford said they will honor reservations in the order they were received, let's see if we can find who the first in line is.

Here are the rules you can only comment if you tie or beat the previous post.

I'll start. I got my confirmation email on the 13th at 8:32 PM (So 32 minutes after launch.)

Isnt it done by your reservation number? Or is that not correct?

The more I think about the reservation line, really isn’t when your preferred dealer places your order in December?

just guessing on this but Ford would need orders not reservations to start the build process, so we are at the whim of when our dealer contacts us to enter our order!
Correct me if I’m off base with this

You're off base. There will be a time period to complete your order, and for it to go to the dealer and to Ford....but all that are completed go into the Factory and they build (roughly) in order of reservation time. There is no race to complete the order, just do it before the deadline.

It’s nearly impossible to tell at this point.
Because there are so many factors on when your bronco will be built.
1 Time of reservation
2 number of doors
3 drive train
4 trim
5 geographical location

all of those factors determine when you will get your bronco. It’s all an algorithm. And your confirmation number appears to be pretty random as of now .

Thanks for the correction...
I haven’t seen that anywhere but I could have overlooked it...

Ford has said they are building them "approximately" in the order in which the reservations were received, with the obvious caveats for production complexity concerns.

FWIW, my confirmation came at 9:45 p.m., exactly 1 hour and 45 minutes after the reservation bank opened.

Do I need a confirmation email? I placed my reserve, got the # and never got the email, even though the saleswoman told me I'm in

I see that on the website thst orders will be filled on reservation but I haven’t seen anything other than “sometime in December” we can finalize orders..

I think a lot of assumptions are being made by a lot of us without knowing facts from Ford

This is what I'm thinking. We're waiting for the dealer to contact us to build, negotiate and place the order.

So, anyone know if I should be concerned or not if I do have at least the reservation #?
