Will the pre-production Broncos have the same quality issues the F-150 is having?

Just another reason why their stock price is so low. Another change of leadership is needed I see.

I have an F150 (and have had 4-5 prior) with NO quality control issues whatsoever. This article sounds more like bitching from the Union than real issues. And, these are pre-production models where they work out the kinks. It does FORD no good to turn out a bad product. IMO, article is BS and Ford will produce a top quality Bronco as well.

That's why I posted the other article, it gives the full story and I must say I feel that Farley is handling this appropriately. Ford hasn't sold the most trucks for over 40 years running for nothing.

Maybe a 2022 Bronco will be a better idea.
I am thinking that when the dust settles most new Broncos will ultimately be the 22 my anyway depending when they do the cutoff.

Thanks for posting this other article. It does explain what is going on better for sure.

That is a sensationalist article and title by autoblog. This happens with almost every new vehicle launch and for every manufacturer I've worked for, GM, Ford, FCA, Toyota and Hyundai-Kia. When the 2019 Silverado/Sierra launched we had the same thing. Some software and trim did not make it in time for startup, so they had to be staged and completed when they became available.

Yes, when you read what is actually happening it makes sense. Ford is correcting minor glitches before shipping rather than making it a warranty issue which is good for no one!

There are so many on here complaining about the delays. Yes I hate them too but you'd be complaining even more if they rushed it out the door only to have a lot of QC issues. There's still no guarantee that there won't be any but I'd rather have a few delays if it means they're still perfecting certain issues.

When the Ranger launched there were a few that had injector problems (bad batch) and hood and fender alignment issues along with a few other things. They were concentrated to a select batch and they fixed this right away. Nothings perfect but I'm glad that Ford seems to be doing all they can to make it as close to perfect as they can. Even though some criticize them and have this conspiracy that they're intensionally doing this.

who cares what problems the pre-production ones have? Isn't that why they are made, to identify and fix things before actual production?
Bingo, give that man a cigar!

It wasn't very long ago that people were saying they don't care how long it takes. They'll gladly wait until 2022. just get it right. That didn't last long.
