2021 Ford Bronco Production And Ordering Dates Revealed

Since the all-new Ford Bronco was revealed back in July, 190,000+ eager reservation holders have been waiting patiently to hear when 2021 Ford Bronco production and order banks would begin and open, respectively. Now, Ford Authority has learned from sources these key dates ahead of the Bronco’s launch next spring.

Order banks for the new Bronco are scheduled to open up on December 7th, 2020, while Job 1 2021 Ford Bronco production is currently scheduled to begin at the Ford Michigan Assembly Plant on March 22nd, 2021. These dates are current as of now, but are subject to change barring any potential quality issues or other unforeseen problems that might occur between now and then.

The 2021 Ford Bronco will be produced alongside the Ford Ranger, with which it shares the Ford T6 Platform. The reborn SUV will be available in either two- or four-door configuration, as well as six different trim levels – the Base Bronco, Big Bend, Black Diamond, Outer Banks, Wildtrak, Badlands, and the sold-out limited-production First Edition.

The new Bronco is available with two different engine options – Ford’s 2.3L EcoBoost I-4 that produces 270 horsepower and 310 pound-feet of torque, or the 2.7L EcoBoost V6 with 310 horsepower and 400 pound-feet of torque. The I-4 is available with either Ford’s new seven-speed manual transmission or 10-speed automatic, while the V6 is currently only available with the automatic gearbox.

The 2021 Bronco configurator launched just a couple of weeks ago, and within just a few days of that debut, nearly a half-million virtual Broncos had been built. However, only a handful of the promised 200+ accessories are currently on the build and price site, though Ford promises that more will be available by the time order banks open up next month.

Brett's lost track of all the Fords he's owned over the years and how much he's spent modifying them, but his current money pits include an S550 Mustang and 13th gen F-150.

    With that kind of waiting time, Jeep will have time to modify their next Jeep Wrangler. In reality, they already have. Even if they won’t admit it, they’re nervous about this. That’s why they made a pathetic commercial about having a V8 concept because they don’t know how to make power any other way. That’s why they now have mirrors you can attach to the B pillar.

    I sold Broncos all the way back to 1973 and loved them. However, maybe I’m too old, but this new new one doesn’t turn my crank like the old ones. Early onset? LOL
