I see so many threads on here where people aren't happy with some aspects of the Bronco. But they are buying anyway. What is the sense of urgency to have it now over waiting?? Several things are shown as late availability. Which means it will not be available at launch. Maybe not even until late in the MY run. If those things are important to you why not wait until you can get exactly what you want??

Speaking for myself I am not happy with any current color. I mean I like some. But not to the point I will be happy with them in ten years. I want heated steering wheel. But I'm not up selling just to get it. I want a white top but it won't be available for a while.

So I've made the decision to wait it out. Maybe some cooler colors will be available next MY or the one after. Maybe they will offer a cold weather package with heated seats, steering wheel and auto start. The white top will be a option. Some other things not expected might be available.

I can say from experience that there is nothing worse than buyers remorse. Knowing what you bought wasn't exactly what you wanted. Knowing something you wanted was coming in the near future but you didn't wait for it. I think so many people are in a rush to have a Bronco, or be the first on their block to have one, that they are willing to settle.

Be happy with your purchase. If the Bronco has everything you want now, then buy now. If not consider being patient. It's not like they are only making these things for a few years.
I'm with you. It always happens to me after I buy something big. A better model or options come out and I wish I would have waited to get the better features.
There are certain things that I want for my Bronco that aren't available yet. The only one that is the closest to what I want is the Wildtrack, but the top, colors, and other options that I want are still missing. I think I can wait this time and not be the first guy in town to have one. Who knows there will most likely be better discounts in a year or two. :rolleyes::rolleyes::unsure:

I apologize, I'm not reading through eight pages of why or why not to buy now (or April through August if we're lucky) I'll be ordering mine as soon as possible for several reasons but most importantly it's a Bronco.

MY22 Broncos not ordered will carry ADM over MSRP. And I don't think there will be any problem in dealers getting that. I suspect that will continue for MY23 with deals being offered at MSRP.
The absolute second the Bronco Raptor Warthog Tasmanian Devil hits the lots is the same second ADM on a regular Bronco will no longer be tolerated. The following second, the value of every Bronco out will drop.

Because I may be dead in a year. I'm not getting any younger. Just enjoy life.

If you think that anyone regularly up in here will pay an ADM, you are not around enough to figure out that folks up in here have switched in droves to dealers that are offering Invoice/below invoice. Sucks to be an uninformed consumer, but if you have a few thousand extra to spend on a vehicle go for it....

Not in love with the WT gut, but I want it now so I’ll live with it. For me wanting one and seeing others drive by me on the road is worse then looking at a tan dash for a few years and then I’ll trade for the piggy bronco

For me it is knowing that there will only be the 2021 bronco once in eternity vs waiting for a bronco that you absolutely love. Tough choice!

Your first point is correct that ADM won't be tolerated. It isn't because of the presence of the Warthog, though. It would be because the Bronco will be entering it's 4th model year at that point. Your second point is a fallacy implying that the power of the Warthog is the only desirable selling point propping up the Bronco's value. I think people are going to be disappointed when the Warthog is released. From the pure power standpoint, it will be awesome. But people are bitching about not being able to add a roof rack to a 4-dr sasquatch due to GVWR. With the Warthog, people will be lucky to add floor liners. I think there are plenty of buyers that would prefer a more utilitarian vehicle than one that delivers pure power.

It’s like when the Sport Trac adrenaline came out. Standing at sema it was a supercharged awd then when they hit the lot they lost the power adder. Still was a favorite suv of mine.

I’m just going off what we currently have, the Raptor. They hold value extremely well. F150’s? Not so much.

Well aware people here won’t pay ADM, but B6G members are not the general public. When you roll up to baseball practice and little Timmys dad sees you have a bronco, he’s going to want one and he’ll spend his annual bonus and tax refund money to get one, ADM or not.

Since unfounded rumors, wild speculation and unjustified worry are baked in to the pineapple pizza, here is my thought process for using my MY21 res instead of MY22, I really like Race Red and given that it might be one of the lowest take rates (which I’m happy about) I would hate to wait for MY22 and Race Red be gone. Also, if and when I put a white hard top on my Bronco, I would rather it be MIC white rather than MOD and that may take a few years to come out. Like others have said, you may gain things in MY22 BUT you may lose things too. I’m 90 to 95 percent thrilled so I feel I better jump.
