Unless you're a dealership like Granger, I highly doubt it. Most are content to print money with the F150. Sometimes they forget Ford even makes another product beside the F150. Go check out all the comedy of the Mach-E release on their forum. Most salespeople are so bad, you'd think they had been trained by the competition.

Some will, like Granger, but most won't be. But I'm sure they'll quickly tell you everything you want to know about the Bronco... and then you'll correct them.

It mostly depends on the dedication of the dealership or the individual salesperson. Some will most won't...

If they are regularly visiting this site, then yes, they will be trained and ready.

If not, just plan on keeping things simple to get the required administrative stuff done... and then come back here for questions. That's my plan! :LOL:

When I called my local dealer the reps were not well versed in knowledge. However, the sales manager was, but he was also purchasing his own. I would try to work with your sales manager, but this forum is more updated than even the Bronco sponsored forum. So ask the community if it's vehicle specific questions.

I’m not an IT guy but I’m more wondering if their site will crash when B&P goes live. In a perfect world since there are 170K reservations they’d not open B&P to the public for the first month of there is a concern with the site crashing. Again with the first world problems, I know.

I think it will be less crashy than the actual reveal was, my only reasoning is because people won't be trying to make an actual transaction like the reservations were.

I've met salespeople that didn't know a thing about the vehicles already actually on their lots so....

I truly hope Ford dealers are trained and ready when the price and build drops. They will be killed with phone calls, texts and e-mails. Will they be ready?
Not as ready as us no lifers will be. Haha

Or the salespeople that walk away from you when you ask an easy yet detailed question.

What do they need to know? Do your build and price then print it out and take it to the dealer.
