2023 Ford Bronco Order Banks Open Up At End Of August

Back in May, Ford Authority reported that 2023 Ford Bronco order banks were scheduled to open up on August 15th, 2022, with production following at the Michigan Assembly plant on October 31st, 2022. However, these dates are always subject to change – particularly in a world ripe with supply chain issues, and that’s precisely the case with the 2023 Ford Bronco, as sources familiar with the matter have told Ford Authority that order banks will now open two weeks later on August 29th, 2022. The start of production remains unchanged, however, and is still scheduled to commence on October 31st.

It is worth noting that as Ford Authority reported earlier this month, 2023 Ford Bronco order banks will not open to new customers, however. Rather, initial orders will be prioritized for current Bronco order holders awaiting their vehicle as the automaker works to take care of customers that have been waiting some time to take delivery of their vehicle. Orders will then open to all customers next year, regardless of current reservation status.

The 2023 Ford Bronco will introduce a few changes to the sixth-generation of the rugged, off-road-focused SUV in its third year of production. The most notable is the launch of the all-new Heritage Edition and Heritage Limited, which feature a host of retro-inspired styling cues designed to pay homage to the original 1966 model. Order banks for the new Heritage – which is limited to just 1,966 total units – opened up when that new model was revealed last week. Heritage and Heritage Limited variants of the 2023 Ford Bronco Sport will also be available for the new model year.

The Bronco Heritage Edition is available in five different exterior colors, while the Bronco Heritage Limited Edition is exclusively available at launch in Robin’s Egg Blue, which is a throwback color based on Arcadian Blue, available on the original 1966 Bronco. Yellowstone Metallic – based on the 1971 hue dubbed Prairie Yellow – is planned for the late 2023 model year, while Peak Blue will be added for the 2024 model year. Additionally, a mysterious Bronco “Oates” recently appeared online via an official NHTSA VIN decoder, possibly previewing another new addition to the SUV’s lineup.

    Anyone know if towing will be increased from current 3500/4500 (Raptor) limits? Also, anyone explain why limit is 3500lbs for full frame SUV?

    1. Kyle

      It’s due to the suspension of the vehicle. It’s on a gen 2 Ranger frame, but the suspension limits it because they’re after articulation and not towing strength. The Raptor has a beefier frame and suspension.

    So, order banks are open now? It’s August 15th. The first paragraph confuses me.

    These dates are not accurate. The My23 order guide will drop August 29th. My23 order banks open up (for current reservation and unscheduled order holders) September 12th. First MY23 will start rolling down the assembly line October 28th. This week, Ford is scheduling for build weeks up to October 31st. So assume this is the final scheduling week. If you dont scheduled this Thursday (check the backdoor tracker or contact Ford chat Thursday evening), you will have to reorder for a MY23 in September. You will have to go through the COVP process to verify your order. Contact your dealer for more details on COVP

    How can you start to take orders for 2023? I ordered my 2022 Bronco in April and still don’t have it.

    I’m in San Jose, California and I get a different answer from each different dealership I visit. I’ve been trying to order an outer banks 2 door bronco. Some dealers want 500.00 to order, some want zero but then a 2000.00 or more add on fee when it arrives, others push purchasing enroute broncos for an added 20,000.00 – and it’s a “be happy you’re getting one” attitude. We were stoked about the new Bronco over here in the land of Range Rovers and Teslas, but at almost 7/gallon for gas and no apparent clear explanation from multiple local Ford dealers{even at the general manager level], maybe I’ll move on to a defender or jeep. Thanks to all those on this website. You were the best knowledge base!

    I’ve been waiting for Ford to work the kinks out on the Bronco motor issue. Are you guys confident that the issue has been resolved for new models?

    Long and confusing process with trying to get a Bronco. I started this process in ’21 re-ordered in ’22 and I am not exactly sure if I have to go back in and order the ’23. So many people writing wrong information on the internet. Even when I go back to re-order how do you build it to receive it without delays?

  8. C\'mon Ford

    Current reservation holders order date for ’23’s was previously pushed to Sept 12…as of today (Sept 12) it’s pushed to Sept 21. Folks can give whatever excuses they want but this is pretty basic stuff, set a date to take orders and hit it or don’t set a date. The revised approach for ’23 orders was supposed to be the solution to all these problems…it’s perplexing at best.

  9. Nate

    it would be nice to know when the order banks will open for 2023 model year

  10. Trudy Schmidt

    I ordered an Outerbanks Bronco in October of 2022.
    Are those the banked orders that will be accepted by Ford from their dealers this March of ’23? Does anyone really know,m
