The 2023 Ford Bronco, like the previous versions before it, will no doubt continue carry the Bronco tradition forward for another year, perhaps with the possibility of new options, colors, or packages. The off-road SUV debuted almost two years ago and launched about one year later, and so far, it’s proven to be a hot commodity. As Ford Authority previously reported, it is now selling in similar volumes as its smaller sibling, and when it reaches dealers, it moves quickly. Until very recently, not much was known about the 2023 model, but information about its order banks and the start of production has trickled out, and it appears aspiring owners still have a little while to go before they can order next iteration of the off-road SUV.
Sources have told Ford Authority that the order banks for the 2023 Ford Bronco will open on August 15th, 2022. Additionally, production of the off-road SUV is expected to commence at the Michigan Assembly plant on October 31st, 2022. It’s important to note that these dates aren’t set in stone yet, but they give us a decent idea of when to expect the forthcoming model year vehicle to drop.
So far, the Blue Oval has kept details on the upcoming Bronco close to the vest, including any changes or additions that will arrive for the 2023 model year. However, we expect it to continue to feature the Ford 2.3L I4 EcoBoost engine with an output of 270 horsepower and 310 pound-feet of torque, along with the Ford 2.7L V6 EcoBoost, rated at 310 horsepower and 400 pound-feet of torque. The upcoming Ford Bronco Raptor will likely retain the twin-turbocharged Ford 3.0L V6 EcoBoost engine, capable of 418 horsepower and 440 pound-feet of torque. We also expect an expanded availability of the Ford Bronco Raptor and Ford Bronco Everglades, if supply chains and production capabilities improve from current levels.
The 2022 Ford Bronco has been sold out since earlier this year, as production issues stemming from the ongoing global microchip shortage continue to impact vehicle supply at the dealer level. In fact, Ford recently elected to withhold Connected Navigation and Built-In Navigation from units of the Bronco bound for dealer stock in order to conserve its limited supply of microchips.
We’ll have more on the 2023 Ford Bronco soon, so be sure and subscribe to Ford Authority for more Ford Bronco news and continuous Ford news coverage.
Hmm order in August, start building in November, wonder how many months Fords calendar has. Not aware of a major design change that would explain the delay.
FORD stop taking orders and fill the ones you have!!!!!!!!!!!!
Amen, brother, AMEN.
Can’t wait to order my new Bronco squash. Very excited. Being 70 years old and going thru Kemo I got something to look forward to . Thank you Ford . Been driving Fords for years
Hang in there…..I salute your bravery. I am a “survivor’ at 77 and waiting to order my ’23 Bronco Outer Banks Loaded….
If prayers help, you’ll be just fine. We are fortunate to be in these times where our medical community is so committed
Thanks Fred . Last chemo this Friday. For all the people ordering and getting mad cancel your orders so i can get mine lol move over . Those who complain always find someone to complain too . Get a Jeep or maybe a moped lmao. Thanks again Fred.
I wanted a Bronco because my Dad had one he other ford vehicle to. So I ordered my Bronco with a hard top but was told by sales preson that it would take long time to get it with the hard top so I went with soft top. So I asking will Ford be able to give the customer who changed their hard top at the FORD COMPANY PRICE.
I placed a Bronco order in February 2021 and still don’t even have a build date! How can they even thank about taking new orders for 2023? I wouldn’t recommend that anyone place an order, Ford is not meeting any of their commitments and I have bought only Fords since 1990! My next vehicle probably won’t be a Ford! Good luck everyone.
I ordered mine 2 years ago and just got it 3 months ago be patient it is well worth the wait
I am sure we probably will never receive the Bronco we ordered a long time ago. We’re thinking of getting another new Jeep instead.
I am a die hard Ford fan but this is ridiculous.
Sad state of affairs, ordered a 2021 then a 2022 now maybe a 2023.
I ordered my 2022 Ford Bronco base 2 door with the automatic as the only option on December 7, 2021. Put $1000 up to ensure the order. Ordered bare minimum hoping for a speedy build date. Noting on build date as of June 1, 2022. Bought a new f150 in 2019. Luckily I have had no issues whatsoever with this truck. It’s a keeper. V8 with super cab. Best vehicle I’ve ever owned. 18 mpg in town 22 highway.
I’m a Ford girl thru and thru, I drive a F150 and I’ve wanted a Bronco since they came out again. My dad had a 2 door and it brings back great memories of riding the back roads. I’m finally able to pay for one outright. I’ve test drove both the sport and full size. The sport is to small for all my adult friends so I’m looking to get a full size. I found one and I was super excited the sticker price was appx. $55,000 it was an order that someone backed out on. The Beaumont TX dealer decided to jack up the price to $75,165.00 +TT & L and I refuse to pay $25,165 over the price of the vehicle. Even though I want the Bronco over any other type of vehicle, I’m not in the process of test drive all types of SUV’s.
Ford….please stop giving people false hopes. Just fill your current orders first before you even think about opening up the books again… This news only upsets your loyal customers even more. People are literally waiting years at this point for their Bronco you can’t provide. For all you people wanting to put an order in….don’t.
I have not a single shred of all the people in the comments whining about not having their vehicles yet. You took a risk and knew you’d be waiting when you ordered a vehicle that hadn’t been made yet. Should have waited until the lots were full of them or when you could buy a used one that had a good amount of the value driven out of it. Now, I’m going to drive around in my modified SUV that I bought used on a lot, same day, to some trails with my pals while you guys keep waiting.
Thanks, Ford Motor Company.
Oh that’s takes some major cahones to inform people that they can order a Bronco. I have had mine on order since Sept. 2021. To those that think I’m whining, I’m not. Just relaying the facts to those that would like to own a new Bronco. Be ready to wait, not just months, but years to get one. If you think Ford will magically have the “supply chain” or “microchip” debacle solved, think again. I’m going to sit here and wait to see if Ford will commit to their promise that they will deliver all current reservation holders by the end of this summer. That’s what I was told. So with that bit of insight, please think long and hard about making this decision. If you do order a 2023 and not receive your order for 16 to 18 months, don’t come a whining. You have been informed.
Hey Steve did you ever get your Bronco?
I was lucky! I received my 2022 Bronco Badlands , Sasquatch, manual 7-speed, lux package, towing package, hardtop on 6/2 – waited close to 2 years from my initial 2021 Wildtrack order that I was asked to reconfigure for 2022 and changed to a badlands after the manual/sasquatch was allowed.
Waited 8 months for mine, the process was grueling but ended up being faster than i imagined. When i get to the dealership they tell me there’s been a slight increase in the price of the vehicle by will over 30k. Msrp 41k dealer wanted to surprise me with 77k. Evil pure evil. I found another dealer that claims they won’t do that andi can sign an agreement before ordering. So i might give it one more try. But Ford does not escape ire on this, don’t feed me this independent franchises nonsense. You could penalize the dealers and make it not worthwhile for them to do this. You could be anally for the customer. If im paying 80k for a car lemme geta land Rover or some actual value in packages. I’m not paying 40k over the price when i waited all that time for the order. in that case i should just buy one on the lor with a mark up
Put my reservation in 07/2021, finally ford sent email saying that my dealer had ordered my badlands. They forgot one thing, they never had me in for a build consult. They ordered standard badlands in Area 51, long story short not even close to what i wanted. Thanks for trying to save me 15k in options (no sale) but they are still giving me 03/2021 M.S.R.P. On a 2023
Shannon D…that’s ridiculous. I hope u reported the dealer for price gouging. Here in nys u can call and report. Idk how much they follow up but I’m guessing Ford company not happy w dealer gouging price either.
I was told yesterday by my dealership that the order window was pushed out until September. Anyone else hearing that?
dont joke dude, last i spoke with dealer ship he said, Aug 14th, but i’ve been hearing from forms like your comment, sept.. 😥
Why don’t they cut back on their other vehicles that aren’t as popular and focus on the Ford Broncos? You’d think they would want to put their money where the want is! Also I would love to suggest a color for the new Broncos….like a Tiffany blue or turquoise. Many of the old broncos have that paint color and it is beautiful!!!
Its August 20th and still no way to order a new Bronco. The order date was supposed to be August 15th. Anybody have any idea when we will be able to order. Maybe I should be more flexible. My nephew waited almost 2 years to get his Bronco. And it is awesome.
I work at a Ford Dealership. The order bank that is opening at the end of August, is NOT for new orders. It is a window for previous reservation holders and unbuilt orders to be converted to 2023 models. Last I heard, new retail orders would not likely be accepted until after the first of the year. Ford has made no promises.
THIS SHOULD BE ILLEGAL AND CRIMINAL, EVERY TIME I GO TO A DEALER TO PICK UP A BRONCO THAT WAS PRE ARRANGED, THEY ALL SAY WE HAVE A PROBLEM. THE ONE YOU WANTED IS NO LONGER HERE BUT I DO HAVE ONE THATS SIMILAR AND ITS ONLY 15K OVER PRICE…WTH , HOW IS THIS ALLOWED? FORD DO SOMETHING PLEASE, WHY LIE TO YOUR BIGGEST FANS, THE CONSUMER!!!!!!!!!THIS HAS TO BE GOOD ENOUGH TO BRING TO THE NEWS AND OUT ALL THESE DEALER SNAKES!!!!
