In recent months, consumer demand for certain FoMoCo models has exceeded the automaker’s production capacity, prompting it to cancel orders and push them to the next model year. This has happened to the 2022 Ford Escape and Ford Transit Connect most recently, as well as the red-hot 2022 Ford Maverick. Now, courses familiar with the matter have told Ford Authority that some 2022 Ford Maverick Hybrid orders are facing cancellation, too.
As has historically been the case, these 2022 Ford Maverick Hybrid orders are facing cancellation over various supply chain issues, in this instance, those stemming from suppliers. This change affects both retail and dealer stock orders that previously had their scheduled build date pushed back to December 12th, 2022, though all dealer allocations will be returned for the 2023 model year, albeit over the course of several months. Ford is currently working on a solution to transfer canceled retail orders over to the 2023 model year, which includes price and incentive protection, and will share those details in the near future.
That last tidbit is particularly notable since 2023 Maverick prices have increased across the board – between $1,095 and $1,200, depending on trim – as Ford Authority reported last month. However, the turbocharged Ford 2.0L I-4 EcoBoost I-4 is now a no-charge option on all trims. Regardless, order banks for the 2023 Maverick were closed after just one week due to a high number of carryover orders and new orders.
In addition to these price increases, the 2023 Ford Maverick is getting a few other changes for the new model year, including the addition of the new Black Appearance Package, Tremor Off-Road Package, and Tremor Off-Road Appearance Package. All of these packages are currently supply constrained, however, along with a number of other options and packages. Meanwhile, 2023 Ford Maverick production was also pushed back several weeks recently and is currently scheduled to begin at the Hermosillo Assembly plant in Mexico on November 14th, 2022.
We’ll have more on the Maverick very soon, so be sure and subscribe to Ford Authority for more Ford Maverick news and ongoing Ford news coverage.
Ford, you are an absolute joke of a company. You strung me along for over a YEAR. I will never buy a Ford product ever again. There’s no excuses for making so many thousands and thousands of people think they were actually getting their truck. Do you have any idea how much trouble it’s been keeping my old car on the road for so long? At this point, I consider myself owed compensation. I will not tolerate any white knight or whataboutism replies. The fact that this happened is unjustifiable.
“I will not tolerate…”. LoL. Sure. Seems legit.
does this mean they will only be building the ICE version from now on? could this mean those of us that ordered the ICO-Boost engine model might get moved up in the schedule, hope so , but it’ll probably just be an opportunity for some other excuse why we can’t have our trucks. those who waited for their hybrids this long must be fuming mad or glad to get a 23 instead of a 22 that’s depreciated a model year before they even get it (new old stock has a new meaning)
I worked in management for Canadian Ford dealers for 46 years in dealership management and always drove Ford. I really wanted a new Maverick, which was to be my last new vehicle and now have been denied 2 years in a row…… bought something else 😡
The auto industry has not had these kinds of vehicle line shutdowns as we have seen the past two years now, since the time of WW2. At least back then, factory resources were used to build Airplanes and Tanks and Jeeps. These excuses today are simply intolerable for those wanting to buy their product. The Little 3 US auto makers best formulate a way to start bringing back production of these sub-assemblies IN-HOUSE, like they used to do………or they face an uncertain future of bankruptcy and possibly buy out by the Chinese.
LoL. How many microchips were in a 46 Ford? PS ask Toyota why they had to revise production numbers downward. Hint: it was because if supply chain shortages. (If an apex auto OEM with massive sourcing leverage and keiretsu advantages isn’t immune to supply chain disruption, you are foolish to think Detroit can do better in the short term. As for the medium term, Ford has already been documented here as saying it is taking steps to prevent supply chain vulnerabilities wrt chips going forward.)
Having two family members in the auto repair business, I regularly hear about their difficulties/inability in obtaining parts for customer’s vehicles. I never thought much of it until I had a water leak at my business a few days ago. After traveling to 6 different suppliers, I ended up at a heavy duty, commercial supplier. When I asked for the coupler that I needed, I was told: “You’re at the right place, just the wrong time.” Thinking I had arrived during someone’s lunch, or worse, their vacation, I asked what that meant. I was told my part was on a 40 week back order. As I stood there, I was listening to a sales person being verbally berated by an installer demanding to know why his $16,000 gate valve was going to be 5 weeks late. He stated an entire housing project was being delayed because of that delayed part. I walked out slack-jawed realizing just how bad this problem is getting (and has been).
well i guess it’s time to pay the piper now, we got so used to getting lower priced products from foreign markets (cheaper materials & labor) that now we’re being held hostage to our own greed. we exported all of our manufacturing ability to foreign competitors and it’s now biting us in the ass, those foreign markets gobbled up all the business they could knowing we’d come crawling to them eventually. thanks to our elected leadership that allowed this to happen and no doubt profited grossly from it (via lobbyists and kickbacks) we’re in this position, man have we been had!!! snowball is picking up speed now, right into oblivion. china is giggling it’s ass off, look at the “made in” stickers does 1% say USA??? probably not!!!
i guess it seemed like a good idea at the time to Nixon to start rolling that ball with China. Also wish we would bring all those industries back. Tired of sending work to other countries whose engineers have no real training and need their hand held every step of the way.
Apparently you have no idea how competent foreign engineers are.
You are absolutely right.
Ford this surly will make customers angry. You created a winner but forgot how to make them. Very disappointing.
This is what happens if you have no competition. When Toyota makes their version your orders will plummet and you will have missed owning a huge segment. Sad really
The Hyundai Santa Cruz is a reasonable competitor. We just bought a 2023 Santa Cruz after driving a Maverick and being completely underwhelmed with the interior. The bed is a little shorter, but it’s still basically the same thing. And the interior and the ride/handling are so much nicer than the Maverick. The SC isn’t everyone’s cup of tea, but I love ours so far.
Thought about buying a Santa Cruz but it has the 6 ugliest/boring colors in the automotive industry. The blue looks like it escaped from an Easter egg hunt and my wife said the one color looked like diarrhea. Then there’s black, white (NEVER), and two shades of gray. Not going to spend that much money on something so ugly!
Competition won’t bring blood out if the supply chain turnip any faster.
Nothing would change if there were competition, Ford would still have to allocate chips across vehicle lines prioritized by marginal profit (or F-Series over Maverick) followed by a trickle flow of other vehicles to other markets and dealers to keep them alive until supply recovers.
will it recover, speaking about the chip makers, is it in their best interest for it to recover, sure they’ll sell more but does it help their agenda (captive market), keeping us starving for their products and creating massive costs of our wanted products is right up their alley, so will it ever go away, i would hope so, BUT!!!
The largest Chip maker in the world Taiwan Semiconductor is building a new HUGE manufacturing plant in Phoenix AZ. Look it up! BUY some TSM stock. I think Intel may be building a USA plant too. All this should help.
Ordered my na erick hybrid Oct 18 2021 Just got notice it’s coming WK Nov 7 after one yr wait it will be the 2022 model
This is my America and I’ll wait for an American Ford long before I would buy a Toyota. Toyota also has supply issues too. I don’t care how many foreign auto manufacturers are in this country. It’s still better for our economy when you buy American.
Ford is stuck – these supply chain issues are no joke. Can’t get baby formula in the stores these days, let alone semiconductors. It’s a good part of why inflation is as bad as it is, and why my wife’s 2022 Escape order just became a 2023 order as of yesterday. Customers are angry, but there’s really nothing Ford (or any other OEM) can do about it.
This is it in a nutshell. These mega trends and problems have built up over the last generation and coalesced into what we see now.
Mine was on order since last October, Dealer made an appointment, and was at the dealership, on the 15th of September to put in an order for a 2023. They called me after the ordering had closed to tell me my vehicle did not get ordered. Now the 2022 is “balanced out”, long story short, no truck even if you do what you’re supposed to. It’s not supply chain issues; it is gross incompetence from top to bottom. I have always driven Fords, now that is going to change.
Gross incompetence? That every OEM is affected to some degree by these problems?
Very disappointed that Ford has no transparency on Maverick orders. How you dare build more Broncos and make us wait for a Maverick pickup. Had to change equipment on my supposed 2023 to somewhat match my 2022 order from December 2021. Are you going to string me along another year? They said we would get an email but instead the dealer delivers their bad news. I also sell upfitted Ford vans and trucks for a living ,no help there. If you can’t build them in Mexico you should have switched a line already to the states. What are you waiting for Kia to steal your idea on this one. Build American get moving ! Jim Rudy
They’re gonna build more Broncos because they make a lot more profit off of those than the Maverick. Ford’s only got so many chips, etc to put into their cars. Of course they’re going to prioritize their most profitable vehicles over their least profitable.
Agreed. This is the simple fact of what’s lost on folks like that.
you’re absolutely right, just a tough pill to swallow, especially as long of a wait we’ve had, but some bronco orders are over 2 years waiting so it dismal at best, hoping that a competitive version comes to market from somebody that can actually deliver, they’ll sell millions, remember the pony cars saved the big 3 cause they delivered them
Maybe you folks should have ordered earlier! 🎃🦖
I ordered the first one and still have no truck. Between the dealer and the Ford mishandling I have figured out I will never get one. I am very disappointed and am upset that the lucky people who did get what they ordered figure that somehow we disappointed thousands are at fault!
Never is a very long time.
Little children often make the mistake of thinking “Christmas will never come” but it does, and in that they learn about patience and realistic expectations.
Parts and chips shortages are real and I’m sure Ford would like to be building/shipping at full capacity, but simply can’t. I’ve waited a year now on a Maverick Hybrid order that never has been scheduled. I get it. But… I do fault Ford for such poor customer communication. I don’t like waiting in line, but at least confirm there IS a line, that I AM in it, and that though slowly, I’m getting CLOSER to the front of the line. At this rate I could wait another year and still know and have nothing.
This is a totally fair critique.
Even if Ford can’t give an exact date, at least they could give windows.
I’ve thought about why the communication in this is so poor and think it may have two reasons:
– the supply chain issues are so chaotic that it’s difficult to establish firm schedules;
– the time, effort and expense to put together a communication system, that could accurately deal with a super chaotic supply environment, may not be worth the cost, and might run the risk of communicating information that would be changed due to another supply glitch (so be as bad or worse than the little communication now.)
What a ridiculous opinion. Your talking about a multi billion dollar company that knowingly sent out incorrect production dates that were confirmed incorrect by ford chat seconds after receipt. You can defend incompetence all you want, the rest of us won’t.
You apparently don’t know much about supply chain.
Ford may schedule build and component release orders but when somewhere down in the supply chain some material or component comes up missing it throws everything into chaos, delay and rescheduling.
Your insight into incompetence seems outweighed by an obtuseness preventing you from recognizing it in your criticisms.
I work in logistics. Ford sent out emails that were inaccurate before being sent. You’re aware of that. You’re aware ford has been stringing people on for over a year. You’re aware that orders have been cancelled with no communication to dealers about the transition to 23s. You’re aware that hundreds of first editions we’re rolled to 23. Defend incompetence all you want. But no ones going to agree with you besides your alt accounts.
Simple, just buy Kia or Honda, they have lots of them on the lots…Iam sure Ford and GM will be bought out buy Kia or Honda anywa
Greetings to Ron the Kia salesman.
completely right Rick, in todays information age there’s no way you can tell us that they can’t give us at least a best guess. with computers capable of trillions of computations/sec that it couldn’t gather resource availability (materials needed) to complete assembly and provide a date for these vehicles even though the resource availability is constantly shifting, what is available and what can be built is a known factor so pass on this info, the info is there, let us know SOMETHING!! NOT SILENCE
Everything always seems easy to the man on the outside.
Ford shouldnt promise something it cant deliver, simple! Been waiting on a Transit 150 cargo van .forever!
I have been waiting on a f-150 lightning for close to a year and a half.
I ordered the Hybrid Lariat 10/14/2021.
Received an email from ford in January 2022 that basically said “Sorry for the delay, but there is going to be as delay.”
Received another email from Ford around April 2022 saying the same thing. They did allude to the possibility of the order being cancelled due to…wait for it…supply issues.
I call the dealership to get their take on the situation. They looked up my order and saw a CODE….that basically said that all the parts are In-House…they are Not Waiting on any parts, just need to slap them all together.
Recent communications from Ford informed me that the Build date was in October, then November and yesterday I was informed they will build the 2022 Maverick in December 2022.
We will see what we see.
I have already ordered the Aptera Solar Car. Delivery in 2nd quarter of 2023.
The Aptera is worth a look. Say BYE to Gasoline ! !
Will be cool if they finally get it into production.
My car quit on me and I ordered a Maverick hybrid August 21/2021. I thought it would not take long for me to get it. They said it was shipped September 1/2022 and this is the 20th of October and I have not got it yet. I have been without a car all this time but I know ford is doing its best. I will wait and just be glad when I get it which I hope is soon.
I’m a little confused, my last e-mail from ford says my 22 Maverick was pushed back to November 24, but they start production of the 23 November 14th ? please help me to figure this one out. I ordered November, 3 /21 a plain jane XLT hybird with a trailer hitch, its been quit irritating.
Ordered Maverick Lariat Oct 21′
No build date, no in info and now worried we won’t get a car at all. The least Ford can do is notify us if we are not getting out truck.
My husband retired from Ford. Have always been a Ford family.
Not anymore. Understand supply issues BUT keeping a buyer informed is ABSOLUTE if you want loyal customers. Shame on you Ford.
ordered my xlt on oct 25 21 built on 9 22 22 picked up on 9 30 22 worth the wait love it
Ford I’ve been a ford man for 50 years i put a order in for a 2022 Maverick Lariat Hybrid. I
finely got the vin number but they keep putting my date back now it’s Dec 15th ? I’m a Vietnam
vet with a lot of Medical problems WELL I BE AROUND TO SEE MY TRUCK OR I’M I JUST WISHING???!!! FORD WANT’S GOING ON???!!!
I ordered the Lariat with lux package and some other add on’s Oct 2021. Ford sent a few emails to inform me of their delays then in in June they asked me if I would be willing to drop the lux package and if so they might be able to build it. All the extras were dropped but still no build date then called Ford and they said they had the parts but still no build date. I went to the dealer to see if they could do anything but they tried to get me to change to a base xlt that they had coming from their allotment and pay a little extra for it. I felt like they were trying to get one over on me so held out for my lariat. Soon thereafter I got another email from Ford saying that I got converted to a 2023 Lariat with the lux package with no extras so that’s where I sit now, still waiting. If I ever do get it I might paint a unicorn on the back.
truly amazing how most of the order holders for a Maverick and Bronco use the term “if I ever get one” instead of “when I get one”, it really shows how much confidence people have in Ford’s ability to build vehicles. how the mighty have fallen!! guess that’s why the largest worldwide vehicle builder is VW now
Oh more nonsense from Tom. Taking the “if vs when” as something more than hyperbolic complaining.
do you practice your Ford defense dialog in front of a mirror or does it fall out of your a__, how long have you worked for Ford to stand up for this gross incompetence, nevermind it’ll just be another attempt to justify another excuse. you could read between the lines and possibly understand how helpless these customers feel about being misled, lied to and taken advantage and being treated as pawns in this fiasco, after all our hard earned money is what they’re after and we’d gladly pay just give us what they promised our trucks
I ordered A Ford Maverick Hybrid XLT on June 10, 2021 got a email from Ford who my dealer would be got an email from my Dealer the next day letting me know they appreciate my Ford Maverick XLT order, I never heard anything from dealer or Ford so in August I called and emailed the dealer a month later they returned my call and said the order was not in so I had to reorder my Maverick Hybrid on September 21, 2021 month went by not hearing from Ford or Dealer I started calling the Rep the dealer assigned to me saying yes you have an order and sent me an order number they received from Ford, a year later in September 2022 I finally received a VIN number and was able to log on to check my order nothing has moved yet on my order no build date or expectations, it still shows a 2022 next to the VIN number so the Wait Continues business as usual with FORD and no order updates.
