2023 Ford Maverick Orders Will Open Two Weeks Earlier Than Planned

Back in May, Ford Authority reported that 2023 Ford Maverick order banks were scheduled to open up on August 15th, 2022, with production beginning at the Hermosillo Assembly plant on October 24th, 2022, though these dates are subject to change, as always, particularly given the number of supply chain issues automakers continue to face. Now, sources familiar with the matter have told Ford Authority that this is indeed the case with the 2023 Ford Maverick, at least in terms of when order banks will open.

Order banks for the 2023 Ford Maverick will now open up a couple of weeks earlier than originally planned – on August 2nd, 2022, though production is still scheduled to begin at the Hermosillo plant on October 24th. This is important news for quite a few folks, as Ford stopped taking orders for the 2022 Maverick earlier this year

. Meanwhile, dealer stock remains virtually non-existent, with most current sales going to customer orders.

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. Unfortunately, many 2022 Maverick order holders have been somewhat left in the dark, with little to no communication coming from The Blue Oval.

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.

We’ll have more on the Maverick soon, so be sure and subscribe to Ford Authority for more Ford Maverick news and continuous Ford news coverage.

  • Is tHis Aug. 2 date JUST for 2022 orders not received o reorder a 2023? Or foe anyone wanting a 2023?

    • Almost all Ford Dealers will sell a Customer Order at MSRP. If your local dealer isn't in that camp then you need to move on to the next dealer. In stock inventory is a different story...

  • How can Ford even rectify the fact that they can’t fill the 2022 and they opening the 2023 they can’t fill the current orders
    Wow this really Sucks

    • It's really not that complicated.

      There comes a point when the manufacturer needs to start revving up production of the next model year. Do you think it would be in Ford's best interest to satisfy all of the 2022 Maverick orders, really? There also comes a point where the customer is just as happy to get 'upgraded' to the 2023 model.

  • I think you’re wrong, the early order entry is only for MY22 orders to roll over to MY23. Better do some more research.

    • Tony, you are wrong. Ford is upgrading all the 2022 orders to comparable 2023 models. How is this point difficult for people to grasp?

  • Is there any way to know what the supply constrained items are so that people can make up their minds before ordering a new Maverick ??

    • The fordvideoguy just covered that on his 7/5 YouTube. He said to stay away from all bed add ons’ and anything you can do yourself.

  • I tried to remove the bed liner from my order at the request of my dealer, there was no problem until I asked about the difference in price, suddenly they were unable to remove it because it was part of the Lariat Luxury package. Seems the $$ factor changed the mind of the dealer.

    • It is part of the Lariat Luxury package. If you want the heated wiper parks, heated seats, etc., you're stuck. If your dealer wouldn't let you remove the whole package, then it was the money factor.

  • Been waiting 6 months for my Maverick an still no build date, an I have no constraints they listed?? Come on Ford.

    • I have been waiting 8 months and my dealer found out I have a build date in august that being said I ordered the basic LT doesn't have electric outside mirrors no cruise control so there was nothing to take off since there's was nothing to start with.

  • Waiting 13 months and would at this point entertain dropping problem options if I knew what they were

  • I received the SECOND official email from Ford. My FIRST was in November 2021 after placing my order, saying the NEXT would be when I got a build date. LIES! Never got a build date. JUST received my SECOND notice last week giving me two options: DROP options that were holding up production (NONE of mine listed) or roll over to 2023 production with a "rebate" (NO DETAILS OR GUARANTEES). This life-long Ford man is done.

  • Been waitng 8months 4 my truck that has no special options on it. No schedule date 2 start building it as of yet. Hopefully I'll see something b4 end of the year.
