Jan 20, 2023 Update
In a recent letter that Ford sent to reservation holders in 2023, buyers will need to change their vehicle or their order, in general, to get their order from Ford. Ford stated that they have done everything to continue making the Ford Bronco SUVs the exact way the buyers order it. This, according to Ford’s letter, is as a result of unprecedented demand and global supply chain shortages.
Everyone who ordered for a Bronco and is to receive it this year will have to contact their dealer and update their order to aa buildable configuration as fast they can. This will help to give their Bronco a higher chance of being produced in the 2023 model year. Buyers who do not take any action whatsoever will not be receiving their Bronco – there is a high chance of this risk as Ford already stated their inability to manufacture Ford Bronco SUVs in the same way most buyers ordered for it.
Ford stated in their letter that any buyer who is still interested in getting their vehicle and has been patient all these while will be eligible for some certain things. This includes the 23MY Bronco Order Modification Private Offer Program. Buyers will receive $2,500 towards the lease or purchase of their Bronco on two major conditions:
- If a buyer orders a Wildtrak series and then changes to a Badlands, Big Bends or Outer Banks series without a Molded-In Color Hardtop, Lux Package or Sasquatch Package.
- If a buyer’s order contains any of these options – Lux Package, Molded-In Color Hardtop or Sasquatch Package – and they remove them from their present vehicle order.
Also, buyers can get the $2,500 incentive – exclusions apply – if they decide they do not want to proceed with their order and cancel it and then lease or purchase an in-stock 2022/2023 Ford. This also applies to buyers who order a 2023 Ford vehicle for lease or purchase. If you do not want to go with any of the above options, Ford is allowing buyers to cancel their order and have their deposit refunded to them.
Buyers have until the 7th of March to change their order and this will also make them eligible for the 23MY Bronco Order Modification Private Offer Program. Keep it in mind that even though March 7th is the deadline, buyers can change their orders before then. Changing your order before the deadline date gives you a better chance of having your order scheduled in 2023. The earlier, the better.
What Happens if you do not Choose any of the Options Above?
According to Ford’s letter, if you decide to leave your order as it is and not take any of the options explained above, Ford cannot deliver your Bronco as a 2023 model year. So, your order will be cancelled.
Once it is cancelled, you will need to place a new order (2024 model year) at the 2024 model year pricing.
Ford has made things a lot more easier for their customers after not being able to deliver the 2023 Broncos due to the problems stated above. You can choose any of the options listed above or you can choose to do nothing about it and opt for the 2024 model year. If you need more information, you can check out Ford’s FAQs on their page.

If you have placed an order or held reservations for the 2023 edition of the Ford Bronco, you are automatically listed in the system as part of the people eligible to place orders for the heritage edition.
- The Heritage Limited Edition:
People cannot freely order the heritage limited edition or the bronco raptor edition as they are both off-limits and cannot be easily accessed. These vehicles are acknowledged as unique cars, so car dealerships usually compile a list of people interested in owning one of these vehicles and wait for Ford to give the go-ahead. The dealerships then determine who is interested in placing orders from that list.
- There is Price Protection:
Ford will continually offer price protection to those who ordered in the form of rebates. Once the vehicle comes, the dealership shows all the rebates you are eligible for. This helps by balancing the prices that Ford has increased in recent years.

There are no retail orders currently being accepted by Ford for the 2023 Bronco. Ford focuses on those who have previously placed orders and are still waiting.

You can freely update your order after it has been placed. If you aren’t satisfied with the color or equipment, you can update your order as long as it is not already scheduled for manufacturing.
- Your Reservation With Time Stamp Is Still Tied To Your Order:
Ford is still carrying on with plans to use your reservations with a time stamp to make sure everything goes to plan. So if you placed your order earlier, you can expect to get the car faster.
- How To Get Your Order Faster?
The best way to get your order quicker is by building it with less equipment. And also removing towing packages from your build.
- What Happens When You Can’t Agree On A Selling Price:
Not being able to arrange a selling fee with your dealer is a bad thing, and it advised that you switch dealers to the one you can trust will not take advantage of the price.

If you’re having problems with your dealer and need help, you can get the Bronco specialist team. The Bronco specialist team is set up to help individuals who have problems with their dealers.
- Availability of The Heritage And Heritage Limited Edition:
The Bronco heritage and heritage limited edition are expected to be delivered from May to August of 2023 next year.

The price protection program does not apply to the raptor and Heritage Limited editions. These limited editions are brought at their full prices.
- Changing Your Order To Everglades Or Heritage Still Gets You Price Protection:
Everglades or heritage are not considered unique vehicles, so you can still enjoy price protection. Only special cars like the heritage limited and raptor edition are not allowed price protection.
19. Is Hoss 3.0 Affected by The Price?
Like other companies, with Ford, nothing is free, and the initial price of the wild track increased by $2500. This was to compensate the amount that the Hoss cost.
20. You can Switch Dealerships:

JUL 19 Update on the Ford Delivery Timeframe
Although the 2021 Ford Bronco delivery timeline was released, customers still have a lot of questions, especially because of the delays. So, here are some updates to our previous article on the Ford Bronco delivery timeline.
When Customers Are Receiving their Cars?
Ford Broncos might have left the factories in July, the deliveries would extend through the 2022 calendar year because of high demand. So even if you made a reservation earlier, you might end up getting the cars released in the 2022 model year because of the high demand. Also, Broncos with the manual transmission and the Sasquatch package won’t be available till 2022.
Cars in the 2022 model year would start production in the last quarter of 2021 so that they arrive at dealerships in the first quarter of the next year. If your Bronco wasn’t part of the first batch, you would have to wait till 2022 for a new one.
It’s also important to note that the 2021 model year Broncos have been sold out.
If I Order a Bronco Now, When Would I Get It?
The estimated delivery window released by Ford is for customers who ordered earlier, generally before May 2021. If you order a Bronco now, you could be part of the customer who receives their order in 2022, depending on your position on the list.
But in some cases, you might find yourself waiting for the Bronco that would be released in 2023 instead. 2023 Broncos would be manufactured in the final quarter of 2022. If you want to get your Bronco very fast, you should avoid ordering those with the parts that aren’t available like the hardtops or Sasquatch package.
Are There Still Delays in Delivery?
The delays to the delivery of the Ford Bronco are not as intense as before, so you should expect to get your car based on Ford’s plan. Any delay right now is caused by the lack of parts and certain packages.
Although if you’re going for the Broncos with a Sasquatch package and manual transmission, or hardtops. If your Bronco would also have the 2.7 engine or Wildtrack towing package, the delivery would be delayed.
But, if you wait for the Broncos that would be released in 2022 and 2023, you would get better benefits and features than the 2021 Broncos. Some of these include 4-door Sasquatch, modular painted hardtops, and other special editions.
Keep in mind that your timestamp would still count throughout the 2022 and 2023 model years, whether there are delays in your delivery or not. So, if you have an early time stamp but your Bronco isn’t read yet, you’ll get it early in the model year that it is manufactured.
There is also price protection on your Bronco, regardless of the delays in your delivery. So, if you have already ordered your Bronco and the price increases afterward, you don’t have to pay extra.
Ford is still doing their best to get you your Broncos on time and in the promised condition.
UPD JUL 7: New Ford Broncos Are Finally Rolled out off the Production Line. Jump here to this article in order to have the most updated information about Ford Bronco delivery date and availability.
There’s a lot of news going around about the delivery timeline of the latest Ford Bronco 2021. These cars have been stirring a lot of excitement among Bronco enthusiasts, and now that the vehicle is finally out, everyone is rushing to get one.
If you ask around about the Ford Bronco delivery date, there’s a lot of conflicting information on the internet. Many people aren’t sure about the process they have to follow to purchase it and how long it would take. To solve this problem, we have compiled a comprehensive explanation of the Ford Bronco delivery timeline.
Ordering: January 19th to March 19th
The ordering process for the Ford Bronco has already passed, so if you didn’t order it yet, you probably have to wait for the next time. If you have already ordered it, you can move on to the rest of the article.
Planning: March to May
From March to May, the planning and delivery phase will last. The planning phase was when Ford worked out what and when they’ll build. According to Ford, three factors affect your delivery timeline. They include the location of your dealer, the timestamp on your reservation, and the options you include in your Bronco.
Keep in mind that 21MY is a short production year from summer to December. The demand is more than the Bronco units that they can build. By MY21, about 30% of Bronco reservations will be produced, although this depends on the order cancellations.
You can expect the wait time to include the Ford Bronco test drives, newsletters, invitations to local events, and more.
Delivery and Production: May to June
But the real question here is, when will you get your Bronco? As we have stated, this is dependent on different factors, but if you’re lucky, you can get yours in June. Keep in mind that Ford will first build FCTP vehicles for dealerships before building any for customers.
It’s risky to purchase a vehicle that is in its first year, but the wide timeline validates the production process and gives early buyers a well-made model without the usual technical issues of a new car.
If you make your order by the 19th of March, which is the last day of ordering, you should expect your delivery estimate in May. If you ask your dealer, they will have a better idea of when you will get your Bronco. Your dealer can also contact you with the option of moving your delivery date up in exchange for a different Bronco build. If you have a deadline for your new vehicle, you can go with this option.
But, if you don’t mind waiting, you can hold on till June for your new Bronco. It’s a long time for Bronco fans to wait, from delays and price corrections to build and price errors, a lot is going on. But, before you know it, your brand-new Ford Bronco 2021 will be in your garage for some amazing off-roading.
Hold on For Your New Bronco!
From January 2021, you will be able to convert your reservation to order with the Ford dealer close to you. If you haven’t already gotten your delivery timeline estimate, you should be expecting it before the month runs out.
And, if you haven’t ordered your Bronco yet, keep your eyes open for the next delivery date.
