2022 Ford Maverick Order Holders Will Likely Be Punted To 2023

The 2022 Ford Maverick immediately attracted lots of attention when it debuted last year, and the compact pickup remains a highly sought after vehicle, regardless of trim level or configuration. As Ford Authority previously reported, the automaker stopped taking orders for the Maverick earlier in the year due to overwhelming demand and the production constraints brought on by the ongoing chip shortage. Now, sources familiar with the matter have explained that customers with unscheduled orders will likely have to wait for a 2023 model year vehicle.

2022 Ford Maverick

Essentially, the automaker is in the early stages of letting 2022 Ford Maverick order holders know that their desired pickups might not get picked for production before the Hermosillo Assembly plant switches over to the 2023 model year. The company is recommending customers reach out to their dealers about potentially changing their orders to boost the chances that The Blue Oval slots in their Maverick before 2022 production is phased out. While the automaker has not specified what is currently preventing orders from being scheduled for production, the Ford Co-Pilot360 option, XLT Luxury Package, and Lariat Luxury Package have previously been cited as the main culprits holding up orders from being fulfilled.

2022 Ford Maverick

Alternatively, 2022 Ford Maverick order holders are expected to receive a special private offer discount in August, presumably to retain 2022 prices on 2023 order conversions. Ultimately, Maverick order holders will no doubt be disappointed with this extremely recent development, but customers willing to wait may benefit from the change. As Ford Authority reported last year, any Ford Bronco order holder who converted to a 2022 model was able to pick from a reconfigured paint roster. Additionally, while it may not happen for 2023, new Maverick trim packages and variants are definitely being developed, based on conversions with the pickup’s team members and the numerous prototypes that our photographers have spotted driving around. 2023 Ford Maverick order banks are expected to open up on August 15th, 2022.

    So, when those people in August order a ’23 Maverick, what model year will they actually get?

    Having ordered a Maverick hybrid mid September of 2021 and waited patiently, I am hopeful a person up the food chain at Ford is willing to discuss order selection and production decision making criteria for the 2022’s. I will wait if pushed to 2023 and Ford, if you are finally listening, I expect to get exactly the truck I ordered at the price agreed to. Drum roll please.

    What happens to our status of being in line from original order date of our 2023 if we update to a 2023?

    Do people that have been waiting for 9-10 months get a higher priority on a 2023 model, or is first come first serve starting August 16 ???????

      If you have a 2022 on order now and it is pushed to a 2023 model year, you will receive and rebate ( private offer ) to help offset the price increase for the 2023. There is no amount listed yet.

    I can’t speak specifically to the Maverick, but I reserved a 2021 Bronco on day 2 of reservations (Couldn’t get on the website: jammed) and waited 18 months for delivery. I had to convert to a 2022 order, was able to make some upgrade changes bc of the new options for ’22, AND I paid exactly the same base and original options price as I was quoted at the beginning. I ultimately paid a little more, but that was because I added things. Ford also threw in a couple of small free items like added sound deadening. Although the wait was tough, it was ultimately worth it. Hopefully, Ford will treat those being moved to 2023 Mavericks equally well.

    Nothing heard from Ford or Bluebonnet Ford in New Braunfels. I ordered a Maverick Lariat with most upgrades on June 18, 2021, just over a year ago. Curious if I need to submit anything to receive notices mentioned in this article. Still one way dialogue as I post these notes on Ford Authority and send them to my sales rep at Bluebonnet. Simmons back on listening watch.

      Once again, Ford is acting like they are doing you a favor. They SHOULD honor their price when you made the order. I’d be willing to bet that orders moved into the 2023 model year will have no better chance of being fulfilled as those people that order on August 15, 2022. More likely those higher priced vehicles (assuming there is a price increase) will be fulfilled first because of more profitabily. Ford loves this, as you hear the boss often mentioning thier strong order banks. How you gonna feel when your neighbor gets his new Maverick for 2023 while you are still waiting for your 2022 order to come in. It will happen because Ford does not care about the customer. And what can you do about it? NOTHING!

        Once again: when did Ford do this in the past? seems Ford IS doing something. they are honoring your original price. Ford doesn’t have an obligation to have a truck ready when you want to buy. they promised to build a truck at a set price and that is what they are doing, they didn’t promise a new truck in your driveway when you decided it should be there.

    FYI, better hope nothing happens because there are no replacement parts. Been waiting on a windshield for over 2 months. I love my 2022 Lariat 1st edition but really want the crack fixed.

      Somebody please tell me what a broken windshield has any relationship to the chip shortage. It just proves more disregard for the customer. Should be no excuse for a company like Ford to be without parts, especially for 2 months. What happens if Tim is cited by police for a broken windshield?

    Nobody should be surprised by any of this. At least Ford isn’t simply cancelling orders and telling people to go fly a kite.

    Sadly this doesn’t surprise me at all. With Ford and Farley playing games with the allocation formula my 03/03/21 Bronco order, if I’m lucky, was estimated to be a 2024 build. I finally gave up, and canceled my reservation. By the time I get that Bronco I just won’t need it anymore. Good luck to all those that are waiting for their new Maverick, I hope the backlog will break loose soon.

    have there been any confirmed announcements from ford management about how the rollover from 22my to 23my will occur, do current order holder automatically rollover or do you have to create a new order, will they go to the front of the line or be shuffled behind the new orders? same thing about pricing is ford going to honor the prices we secured upon the original order sheets or will be left to negotiate (argue) that with the dealership? have they committed to the option of building the vehicle without the chip and deliver them to the dealerships and allow them to complete the assembly at the dealership allowing them to have a less interupted build capacity since they’ve run out of parking area for incomplete vehicles at the assembly plants, not sure that this would be any better but it would be one less excuse for delays. when will the dealerships have the info about which options are actually causing specific delay for building an order, the XLT I ordered had no options added except a trailer hitch and a full size spare tire (both i’m told are installed at the dealership not at the assembly plant) nothing else so I’d assume there is nothing I can knock off to expedite the process? if you haven’t noticed every point ends with a question mark and our info stream is definately lacking and this is the biggest disappointment especially from one of the worlds oldest and largest corporations, wonder what ole Henry would be doing, I know he’s spinning in his grave (no disrespect intended-he made sure things got done, excuses be damned)

      My dealer said I had to create a new order, I also read if the dealer didn’t file your order with ford you won’t get a special offer. I can’t find anything concrete what the special offer is except maybe to honor the original price,
      I am quietly hoping for a nice discount but not holding my breath LOL

    I wouldn’t mind if Ford would tell me that my order is delayed to the 2023 model. I wouldn’t mind if Ford would send me an email saying that I still exist.
    Ordered July 7, 2022. Received email acknowledging order placed. NOTHING SINCE. Zero communication. My email has been verified twice. There have been 4 updates/changes to scheduling that I only found out about when I asked the dealer to check.
    Pitiful that Ford just refuses to communicate with some of their customers.
    Last I heard (from the dealer) is my scheduled June 13th week was moved to June 23, then June 27th, then July 25th. No reasons/excuses given.
    3 more days, and it’ll be a full year since order placement, and a full year since hearing from Ford. Pathetic communication.

    Ford is a joke anymore. I have been a life long ford owner bit after this fiasco and the way ford treated orders. I will never buy another. They knew there was a chip shortage but didn’t limit orders then completely ignored order and just delivered the cheapest vehicle they could. Never again

      yes it was the cheapest. 19,998.00 cheap.
      if you want a better truck buy a 40,000.00 Chevy

    Maverick production really dropped in July. Don’t see how they will clear many outstanding orders with this type of factory output.
    Maverick – Jan – 7,842 Feb – 9,184 Mar – 9,778 Apr – 9,179 May – 7,550 Jun – 7,564 Jul – 3,578
