Earlier this week, Ford Authority reported on some modifications that have been made to 2023 Ford Bronco orders giving customers a few options that essentially boil down to either removing constrained features and options and getting $2,500 back, or potentially risking that their order may not be filled in the 2023 model year. This move comes as the automaker continues to struggle with various supply chain shortages while also working to fill as many orders as possible after it didn’t initially open order banks for new customers. Now, it seems as if some 2023 Ford Bronco order holders who opt to not make those changes risk having their orders canceled altogether, according to an email posted by several members at Bronco Nation.
“Although we are doing everything we can to continue manufacturing Ford Bronco SUVs exactly as ordered, global supply chain shortages and unprecedented demand have impacted our ability to produce your Bronco,” the email reads. “To give your Bronco the best chance at being produced in the 2023 model year, contact your dealer and update your order to a buildable configuration as soon as possible. If you take no action and leave our order as-is, and your Bronco cannot be delivered as a 2023 model year, your order will be canceled. You will then need to place a 2024 model year order at the 2024 model year pricing.”
Ford notes that those that choose not to remove constrained options from their orders – a list that includes the Wildtrak trim, molded-in color hardtop, Sasquatch Package, and Lux Package – have a good chance of having that order canceled. And since private offers are set to end this year, those that face that situation and place a new order in 2024 will do so at 2024 model year pricing.
Alternatively, Wildtrak customers that choose option one and convert their order to a Big Bend, Outer Banks, or Badlands trim or another Ford model will receive $2,500. The same goes for Wildtrak order holders who opt to cancel their order and take delivery of an in-stock model, as well as those with orders for other trim levels that remove all of the aforementioned constrained options.
