Certain 2021 Ford Bronco Options And Packages Will Cause Order Delays

For some time now, we’ve known that 2021 Ford Bronco reservation holders who want the Shadow Black-painted hard top or Sasquatch Package with Ford’s seven-speed manual transmission were facing order delays. However, Ford just sent out an email to its 190,000 plus reservation holders that adds quite a few additional options and packages to this list.

First, Ford lists a series of items it expects “to lead to extended wait times due to overwhelming demand.” Those items include the Bronco Two-Door, Wildtrak trim level, 2.7L EcoBoost V6, Sasquatch Package, Lux Equipment Group, and leather-trimmed interior.

In addition to those items, Ford also lists vehicle options that are currently slated for late availability, which will also delay the build and delivery of Ford Bronco orders. They include the aforementioned Shadow Black-painted hardtop, which is slated for late summer delivery, and Sasquatch/manual transmission combination, which is slated for the 2022 model year.

Additional late availability options include the dual soft and hard top option (late summer 2021), First Edition black interior (late summer 2021), Roof Rack with the Four-Door Bronco and Sasquatch Package (2022 model year), and body color and white-painted modular hardtops (2022 model year).

As we reported earlier today, Ford dealers may only receive enough allocations to fill 30 percent of their respective reservations, while the rest will be pushed to the 2022 model year. However, those that choose to wait until 2022 will receive new exterior colors, vehicle options, and special editions to choose from, in addition to the items listed above.

As we recently reported, Ford has officially confirmed that 2021 Ford Bronco order banks will open up on January 20th, while reservation holders have from January 20th to March 19th to convert that reservation to an order. After that deadline has passed, the reservation automatically converts to a 2022 model year order.

We’ll have more on the Bronco very soon, so be sure and subscribe to Ford Authority for more Ford Bronco news and 24/7 Ford news coverage.

    Are they EVER going to get this thing out? Now we hear you can get it with “some” options? Seems like a long and clumsy roll out.

      Truer words haven’t been written! I am afraid there are some serious problems, and not being discussed outside of ford. Ford’s reliance on china to make “high quality” parts has been a disaster in the past-Job #1 seems to be “make them a cheaply as possible, use china as much as possible, as long as they last a little past warranty…”. We shall all see in a couple of years.

    Delays? As long as it pushes orders to MY2022, ford will be able to “UP” the price, clever. As long as there are Fan Boys willing to pay MSRP, why not?

    The commenters sound like aggressively entitled babies. Are any fanboys aware of CV19 supply chain issues? I work in construction. Half the teams are usually out on quarantine. The factories that make the plumbing and appliances are up to 9 months behind. I doubt Ford project managers are dropping the ball.

      What? Your take on the situation may have some merit (some) if in fact the china virus was effecting all the mfgs in the same manner. It strikes me as Not Believable, that the virus hates ford and is effecting them far more than the other mfgs. Anyone that believes there will not be a “MY2022 price increase” is living in a dream world, in fact they are the definition of a FAN BOY. The best thing about these type of discussions-when the 2022 prices are announced, we’ll be able to revisit this very string, and find out who has spent far too much time with their dream pipe, and who is living in the real world.

    As of 04/08 I still cannot order a Ford Bronco base with manual transmission and the Sasquatch package. Dealer is of absolutely no help and Ford corporate support is worse
