2022 Ford Bronco Sport Order Banks Scheduled To Open In August

It’s been nearly a year since the 2021 Ford Bronco Sport was revealed as the “baby brother” of the regular Ford Bronco. The surprisingly capable off-road-focused compact crossover entered production at the Ford Hermosillo Assembly Plant back in October of last year and has proven to be a hit with consumers thus far, despite facing a number of challenges related to the semiconductor chip shortage. Now, Ford Authority has learned from sources familiar with Ford’s production plans when 2022 Ford Bronco Sport order banks are scheduled to open, as well as when production will begin.

2022 Ford Bronco Sport order banks will open on August 1st, 2021. Meanwhile, production of the 2021 Bronco Sport will end at the Hermosillo Assembly Plant on October 29th, while production of the 2022 Bronco Sport is scheduled to begin on November 11th, 2021. It is worth noting, however, that these dates could change, especially as the chip shortage continues to affect most of Ford’s North American plants and models.

In addition to the U.S., the Bronco Sport has also launched in a number of other countries around the world in recent months, including Mexico, Brazil, and Argentina. The compact crossover recently earned a coveted IIHS Top Safety Pick+ award, the organization’s highest such honor, and has proven so popular with buyers that Ford changed its own rules and let dealers sell demo models early.

Meanwhile, the majority of Bronco Sport buyers have come from other brands, with most of them defecting from Jeep. Much of this can be attributed to the Bronco Sport’s off-road capability, which Badlands and First Edition owners can hone at the Bronco Off-Roadeo off-road driving school. Registration for the Off-Roadeo is currently open, and owners can also go ahead and sign up for the first location – Horseshoe Bay, Texas – right now.

    What changes is Ford making on the badlands package?

    1. Ulysses Vazquez

      Chuck cannot wait to place my order. If delivery is delayed might need to go with a Tacoma.

  2. Scotty

    Hopefully, they will do something that makes sense and offer the sound package on lower trims or a la carte like other manufacturers have learned. Offering the 2.0L or even better, a non-turbo option with a manual tranny would put it over the top. Otherwise, blah…

  3. Marc

    Is Sync 4 going to be included in the 2022 ford bronco sport?

  4. Randy

    Ordered a Badlands package in early March. Just got built June 18th. They told me dealer delivery date is between October 25th to October 30th. No chips. I’m running out of patients.

  5. Larry Right

    The Bronco’s baby brother?? I would say it’s older brother seeing it was born first. Such a stupid name that has confused the hell out of people and even dealerships. Take the hideous bold BRONCO off the grille. Or better yet, call it the Bronco Escape. And put the emphasizes on the ESCAPE part of the name.

  6. Karen

    We are still waiting for our Bronco Sport ordered in March to arrive. NO CHIPS! We are told maybe in October at the end of the month. New orders for the 2022 B.S. will be starting in November , what is going on???????

  7. Jenn

    Ordered Feb 10, built June 11 sits waiting for “a chip” ETA now shows Nov 3?!?! Night have to jump ship and go with something else.

  8. Lawrence Buechel

    My local Ford dealer tells me the order banks aren’t open yet for the 2022 Bronco Sport as of 9/15,
