After waiting over a quarter-century for the Ford Bronco to return, fans are understandably getting a bit anxious. The fact that 2021 Ford Bronco deliveries were recently pushed back from spring to summer doesn’t help, either, and has caused at least a few of the 190,000+ reservation holders to consider other options. Regardless, Ford Authority has learned the latest 2021 Ford Bronco production and order dates, which we can pencil on the calendar for now.
Currently, order banks are scheduled to open up on January 19th, at which time reservation holders can begin to convert their reservations to actual orders. Job 1 2021 Ford Bronco production will then begin at the Ford Michigan Assembly Plant on May 3rd. As is always the case, these dates are subject to change, especially in light of the continued effects of the pandemic, which was the reported cause of the most recent delay.
As we reported recently, the dealer selection cutoff deadline has also shifted to March 19th, 2021. Thus, reservation holders should have plenty of time to choose their preferred dealership before placing an order. Previously, the cutoff for this decision was set for January, which means that reservation holders now have a full six additional weeks to make that choice. March 19th also happens to be the last day reservation holders will be able to convert them to orders.
In the meantime, we can expect more changes in the Bronco’s build and price configurator as Ford plans on adding more accessories in the coming weeks. Reservation holders recently got a bit of a shock when prices of some builds suddenly rose, but the automaker attributed that to pricing errors that were present in the configurator since it launched.
On the plus side, those that have remained patient waiting for their new Bronco will receive a few hundred dollars worth of free FordPass points for their troubles, which can be used to purchase accessories for their new rigs.
