2022 Ford Maverick Orders May Get Pushed Back To 2023 Model Year

The sixth-generation Ford Bronco has faced a number of supply constraints since its launch, which inevitably forced FoMoCo to push a number of unscheduled orders from the 2021 to 2022 model year. Now, that same phenomenon is plaguing 2022 Ford Maverick production shortly after The Blue Oval stopped taking orders for its new compact pickup. This issue has grown so big, in fact, that sources familiar with the matter have told Ford Authority that some 2022 Ford Maverick orders may get pushed back to the 2023 model year.

Currently, Ford is prioritizing the oldest retail 2022 Maverick orders first, but numerous supply-constrained features have also prompted it to ask dealers to reach out to order holders and discuss the possibility of changing their builds to circumvent these shortages. Customers that opt to stick with supply constrained features will face the potential that their order could be pushed back to the 2023 model year while removing them from an order will likely speed up production on customer orders.

Those features currently include the XLT Luxury Package, Lariat Luxury Package, Co-Pilot360 Package (optional on all trims), the spray-in bedliner (optional on all trims and included in Lariat Luxury Package), Cargo Management System (optional on all trims and included in XLT and Lariat Luxury Packages), bed extender (optional on all trims), bed tray (optional on XL, XLT, and Lariat), and hard trifold tonneau cover (optional on XL, XLT, and Lariat).

The 2022 Ford Maverick – which has racked up numerous awards over the past several months – remains an ultra-hot commodity, as dealer inventory is turning in just four days. Meanwhile, order books for the 2023 model year are scheduled to open this August, as Ford Authority recently reported.

    What a shame. Ford was looking at record sales for its product line and the supply constraints will inflict damage on this prospect. Sure, every Ford F-150 Lightening, Mustang Mach E, Bronco Sport, Bronco and Maverick produced will be sold within a few days, but an untold number of buyers will be left wanting. How many of those will buy something else rather than wait will hurt. And none of this will be Ford’s fault other than its failure to foresee the chip shortage… and it was foreseeable. Apple is now making its own chip (M1) rather than rely on Intel or foreign manufacturers. Sure they are not alone but it is ruining what would have been a record year surpassing other US companies by a wide margin.

    I would like to see some type of timetable from Ford that shows probable production dates based on the order date for all vehicles. I ordered a Maverick, and would at least like some idea of when it may be produced. I may need to buy another vehicle in the meantime.

      Ford has provided terrible customer service. We were told when we purchased to expect delivery by December 2021 and don’t have a build date. No one will respond to emails including Ford I have sent several we should be given an expected delivery date. This was purchased to be a tow vehicle with a new motorhome now we delay our trip or purchase a different vehicle. We will never buy another Ford.

          I order a maverick in Sept. 2021 and was told to not expect delivery until the spring of 2022. The.ford motors has emailed us twice with updates . Last one give us a building date of March 28th. We do have a good dealership close by.

      Tim, I ordered my maverick in June, delivered Jan. 7 this year. During my wait I found information that priority orders were sent to Brazil and to fleet buyers, superseding some pending orders. These fleet trucks were all base models, easy to build with quick turnover. I was very lucky to get my truck. Existing orders now have not been so fortunate. Seems like ford made a business decision that has hurt you and others.

      Agree, Tim, but Ford uses Dealers so communicating on a one-to-one basis is a really new thing for them at least within the situation of telling consumers production dates. So what is happening does not surprise me, but like you I am waiting, for 6 months yesterday, and still no production date. So how do I plan? Lots of us have similar problems.

    I placed an order in August 21 for an AWD Maverick in the Lariat trim with the LLP, Co-Pilot 360, Bed Extender, Sunroof, etc….
    With no feedback status from Ford nor the Dealership on the protected build date, I will more than likely buy a comparable vehicle.

    I placed my order for the Maverick back in July and have been in communication with my local dealer regarding my build date. They are able to access this information for those who are wondering. The dealer also told me that if, for some reason, I’m not happy with the vehicle when it arrives they would keep it and mark it up $5000 and sell it. I am buying it either way. I will be the one making any profit having to wait this long!

      My dealer always has one or two unclaimed builds on the list from customers who long ago gave up on their orders. They are marked 10-12K over MSRP and sell within a week.

    Ford has done a terrible job with communication. No one will respond to emails. When we ordered the truck advised it should arrive by December. Ford will be losing many of their customers based on their lack of customer support and service.

    I ordered a spray in bed liner on my hybrid Maverick XLT. What does a spray in bed liner have to do with a chip shortage? Is Ford using the chip shortage as an excuse because they were ill prepared for the demand of the Maverick and they are sharing the same plant with the Bronco. Will the Ranger Raptor be a repeat of the Bronco and the Maverick with Ford being caught completely off guard? If customer ordering is Ford’s future business plan it will be a failure once the chip shortage unless they change. Ram and Hyundai will up their production eventually and then customers will not wait 6 months to over a year for their ordered vehicles.

      If Ford is considering online sales only then they need to be better prepared for demand otherwise customers will not wait. Once the chip shortage is over it will not be acceptable to have customers wait 6 months to over a year for their new Ford. It wouldn’t surprise me if the Chinese enter the US and Canadian market directly especially with their own EVs and I am not talking about Buick and Volvo they are already selling Chinese made vehicles in the US now. Ram has gained the No 2 truck spot in the US and Hyundai, Kia, and Toyota have been gaining market share and once this shortage is over all of them will increase production and take more market share away from Ford and GM. Will Ford like GM then ask for a Government Bailout to pay for their mistakes. GM is a lost cause and will eventually become Chinese owned but Ford still has a chance to right the ship. I hope I am wrong but I fear I am right. Ford is just like most American based corporations concentrating on short term profits at the expense of the future and if this continues it will catch up to them. The competition is not asleep and is ready to topple those who are now on the top and this has always been true whether it be a corporation or a country. Look what has happened to Sears and look what is happening to GM which at one time had over 50 percent of the market and at one time tried to buy Ford for 8 million dollars in 1920 but Durant was denied the loan because he overextended GM and was fired a year later.

    I know Ford must be equally frustrated that with record demand they can fill orders. I can’t blame them for not having chips and other parts. Where I can blame them is for not officially communicating with dealers and customers. We are left instead with rumors and wild speculations.

      The lack of communication indicates that Ford’s production is so, so, so terribly bad that they would rather say nothing than tell the truth. If they tell you your truck won’t be available for at least another year, then you walk and get another vehicle. If they tell you nothing, then you hold on to hope that it will just be another month.

    I ordered a LARIAT LUX pkg on Dec 30, 2021 with the expectation of it being awhile to take possession. This latest news is upsetting since my order has a lot of these constraints. I’m waiting to hear from my dealership that they will cancel this order and I will have to reorder in the summer for a 2023 model in which no doubt will be more expensive than the price I was given for my previous order. FORD should’ve known that there were going to be constraint issues down the road but I guess the ALMIGHTY DOLLAR rules

    I ordered a xlt maverick on July 21, 2021. I have not heard from the dealer . In October 26, my order was confirmed. What happened from July to October. I left a deposit of 1,000 , they cashed right away. They promised the truck in the Fall. Ford and the dealer have dropped the ball, to say the least. Why is the president if Ford not Out in front of this, “ what we have here is a lack of communication” . Frustration , will always be associated with Ford . That’s too bad..

    The problem with Ford is they never signed long term contracts for chips, so that’s on them. Also, how do you build more of popular vehicles when you are trying to build them in plants with other vehicle lines. Ford has not built a new plant in decades, only closed a few during that time. They need to build a couple new plants to grow sales or else they will slowly decline and disappear in a decade or two.

    I am wondering if I get another email delaying the production of my hybrid XLT Maverick if I should contact my Ford dealer and delete the spray in bed. I have a production date of the week of March 7 which is the 2nd time my truck has been rescheduled. I will wait patiently but if the spray in bed in delaying it I can always go to Line X or someone else and get it put in.

    Each time I see a message about production timeline in this newsletter I check with my salesman at dealership to confirm. Each time my sales rep is unaware of the update. Me thinks Ford needs to focus on their customer communication network. Ordered a Lariat Hybrid on Jun 18, patience is a virtue.

      Jimmie, I ordered my maverick last June. Ford kept in touch with me and my dealer on their website through all stages of production, delivering on Jan. 7 this year. This truck amazing. It’s a hybrid, getting more than 50 mpg around town. Your dealer should have an update on your order. Hang in there, the maverick is definitely worth the wait

      7. I learned that items like the luxury package put these orders at the back of the line. Basic maverick fleet orders bumped us all back. I was lucky to get my hybrid when I did. Great performance, 50 mpg+ in the city. Tacoma is a nice option if you don’t mind the extra 10k. Purchase price, if you can even find one. I wish you luck either way.

    So my local dealer mishandled my order from July and it didn’t get placed until October when I inquired for the second time on delivery status. Now it sounds like because the order was placed so late I won’t get the 2022. I will probably be looking for something else and not a Ford and not from that dealer.

    SO the options not avail are all the options worth having.
    Well, as bad as I want a AWD XLT I am going to wait 2024 or 2025 to make sure they get all the bugs, if any, worked out. There is one thing I’m longing to see. A Maverick build with the new GODZILLA 7.3L.
    There has to be some shop out there thinking about it.

    We placed our order in mid July and have not heard a thing. The irony: we told friends about the Maverick in late June ( they had not heard of it ). They ordered a week before us and their Maverick came in Jan 3 and they love it and they really are getting 40+ mpg.

    I ordered an XL Hybrid last October 25. I have backed out the SIBL, but really do want the Co-Pilot 360. I’m thinking I will be one of those 2023 builds. What I do hope is that when they do switch to the 2023 models that those of us already in line will simply retain our place in line with no need for any reordering process. If they make us start all over again simply because they were unable to complete our builds in 2022, that will be the last straw.

    Ordered hybrid with xlt luxury package, hard tonneau cover, in white in September. Quickly received email from Ford thanking me for my order. Couple of months ago Ford again sent me an email telling me they were providing a free kit for the inconvenience of waiting. But nothing new since, no production date and the dealer only tells me he knows nothing at all. Been 7 months and no updates and can not seem to get any. How long do you wait until you accept you might not get anything?
