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.
