2023 Ford Maverick Order Banks To Open Up One Day Earlier

Sponsored

Like most new vehicles on the planet these days, 2022 Ford Maverick production has been severely limited due to the chip shortage and other supply chain constraints. On top of that, the Maverick has experienced tremendous demand that has far exceeded Ford’s expectations for the thrifty, affordable pickup, which only further complicates matters. Thus, Ford stopped taking orders for the 2022 Maverick earlier this year, and as Ford Authority reported back in December 2023, Ford Maverick order banks are set to open this coming August. However, sources familiar with the matter have now told Ford Authority that production will start one day earlier than previously scheduled.

Previously, 2023 Ford Maverick order banks were scheduled to open on August 16th, 2022, but now, orders will open on August 15th. However, 2023 Maverick production is still scheduled to begin at the Hermosillo Assembly plant on October 24th, though these dates are subject to change, as always, particularly given the myriad number of supply chain issues automakers continue to face.

As Ford Authority reported back in February, some 2022 Maverick orders may get pushed back to the 2023 model year as well, which has happened with a number of other Blue Oval models in recent months. This is particularly true of pickups that are optioned with supply-constrained items, while ditching those features could speed up delivery, on the other hand.

Meanwhile, Ford recently changed its allocation formula for the Maverick, scheduling orders as they’re received rather than prioritizing larger-market dealers or those located in more populated areas, which has been the case with vehicles like the Ford Bronco and Ford Bronco Sport. Of course, this doesn’t apply to orders that are placed with supply-constrained features present.

    That’s all well and good for the people waiting for the 23, but what about those of us waiting so long for our 22s? Get it together Ford. I’m getting more and more irritated with my 7+month wait.

      I ordered the first day in June of ‘21. Just got another notice…my 3rd or 4th that my production date has changed to June 6th. That is almost 1 year to the date.

    I just started to loose interest in the truck now that it’s becoming a hassle to get. Supply and demand!

      I do understand the frustration. I ordered my Lariat fully loaded with the first edition package with the Rapid Red paint back in July 2, 2021. It was delivered March 7, 22 and I have been totally happy with it. Besides being totally good looking with everyone hoovering around it whenever I go to HD, I’m also averaging a little over 45mpg in the 2100 miles I have driven it. Keep the faith, I think you will love how it drives.

    Ford has bit the big brown one with Bronco and Maverick.
    Screw the F150 Lightning. They need to use all the materials from that joke and take care of all the 1 year plus orders.

    I gave up on trying to get the unicorn Maverick. Picked up a Hyundai Santa Cruz instead and never looked back.

    I ordered my maverick, July 21,2021. It doesn’t have all the bells and whistles, but still haven’t received it as of May 2I. It still is not in production.The ford motor continues to promote all their new vehicles, but can’t even take care of orders from 10 months ago. Not a great reputation to promote.

    I ordered my truck 7/23/21 Lariat with the works. Very irritated! I was told by marketing that 2022 orders would be built by date of order considering constraints. I can’t believe that they have not received enough chips to build my truck. I order my truck from a small dealership in NC that’s probably my problem, but that was where Ford Motor Co suggested me to go. My wife new better! they balanced me out until 2023, looks like a 19 month wait for me.

    We need to bombard the board of directors with letters of complaints. I have mine composed! I was also told by Marketing that all 22 models would be built before the 23’s got started. Marketing is very polite, but useless. I lodged a complaint with them and was told whomever received my complaint couldn’t get in touch with me and filed the complaint as settled.I ask for Marketing to refile or have the person to recontact me, response was I can’t do that!

      been waiting since Oct 1st 2021 for my hybrid xlt maverick. Dropped most of my extras except for the luxury pakg. and pilot 360. thinging of dropping the 360 but they wont tell me if that will help get the car faster. My lease is getting closer to turn in , been a ford man for 40 years, but might have to look elsewhere if the maverick doesnt come soon.

      I ordered my Maverick xlt June 14th still waiting and nothing from ford I paid a down payment told I was a early order . I guess the old saying first will last and the last will be first haha.

    Given that they won’t start production of 2023 model year until end of October, that means all the previous orders are going to take until October to get built. It is May now, so that means in the next 4 months they should be finally out the door. I hate waiting. But this is the car biz in 2022; I don’t know of any popular car that is in stock, in quantity. Neighbor just ordered a RAV4 hybrid, and because they brought in a trade-in, they cut the waiting time from 6 months to 3 months. If Toyota is backordered, you know something is up in the car biz! They are #1 in the world, normally plan very carefully ahead.

      Toyota was first to implement the “just in time” supply chain model. They were also the first to realize its limitations so they didn’t get caught short to the same extent other builders did with silicone chips.

        One of the largest chip plants in the world burned down. Keeping an extra 2 weeks of stock isn’t going to change that. Plus the fact that automotive chips are on very old architecture, chips for other applications are vastly more profitable.

    I agree I’m only waiting 5 months but they need to finish these orders first ! They can’t even handle what they got.

    Getting ready to cancel my order. With this many “supply chain constraints” the odds of ending up with a lemon on a first year model after waiting for months seem astronomical and my 2011 RAV4 is still running strong. I’m 71 and have never owned a Ford; apparently I never will. I wanted this vehicle bad.

    If you can find them on the lot, they are marked up 5 to 10 thousand dollars, they were made to be at a lower price ford ,should get after those dealers trying to take advantage because of the supply problems I don’t like the Santa Cruz because it doesn’t look like a truck

    Why is it that it says that opening orders will be taken in August, but our local dealers say they have no notification of this happening

    Ford is so stupid. People have been clamoring for these vehicles (Bronco and small pickup) for decade(s) and they refused to build them and when they finally do, they can’t fathom this kind of demand. Wow…

    I ordered my ford maverick xlt on June 24, 2021 and I still don’t have a build date.
    I wish ford would fulfill the current orders before taking on new orders.

    I ordered in dec 21 and it is may 22 and the only communication I have received is they have the order. Not too mention the dealer asked for 10k down to help speed it along. Now I’m out 10 k and no truck either. Xlt awd lux package with Ecoboost and trailer option. The 23s aren’t supposed to have the same packages as the first edition 22s.

    My dealer is adding $5000 to MSRP on Ford Maverick calling it adjusted price. Can they increase sticker price without any aftermarket addons?

      Dealers are independent businesses. They can offer for sale at any price they choose. People didn’t complain when for years, cars sold for substantially less than sticker…

    I asked a dealer in my town if I order a 23 Maverick will I have to wait a year to get it and he said he had no idea how long I would have to wait. I think maybe year 2024 LOL

    I ordered June 18, 2021 and it arrived at Cornerstone in Elk River MN on May 3rd. I picked it up May 6th. Very happy with my purchase and the reward I got for my risk and patience. I plan to order second Maverick the day they start taking orders for 2023. Dealership did not mark up from MSRP. I don’t think the second one will get the attention the first one gets. People call out to me from across the parking lot or I find them inspecting it when I walk up with my card of stuff at Costco.

    Ordered the 22 maverick in Dec 21. I was told it could take 3 months to get it. After waiting 4 month and hearing nothing from ford I ask for a refund of the deposit and the refund was granted. Now I her the 23 will begin production in Oct of 23. Thought about ordering the 23 but ford has a severe problem that will take at least 2 year to catch up.
