As Ford Authority reported back in January, 2023 Ford Bronco order banks were expected open up to new customers this month after they were initially only available to carryover reservation/order holders as the automaker was working to catch up with the extreme demand for its reborn, off-road-focused SUV. Just last week, Ford Authority reported on the details of this reopening, including its limitations. Now, 2023 Ford Bronco order banks have officially reopened as of today, March 27th.
There are, as one might imagine, some caveats that come with the reopening of 2023 Ford Bronco order banks, however. For starters, the automaker only expects order banks to be open for around 24 hours due to high demand, which means that prospective customers will want to act quickly. Additionally, The Blue Oval isn’t currently planning to provide any sort of price protection or model year transition offers for customer orders taken for the 2023 model year that ultimately wind up not being built.
There are several exclusions in terms of trim levels and options that customers won’t be able to order either, including the Base model and the Everglades, as well as the seven-speed manual transmission and optional Badlands wheels, which are the 17-inch black high-gloss painted aluminum units that come equipped with a Carbonized Gray beauty ring and are typically available for an extra cost of $995. Customers will be able to place orders for Big Bend, Black Diamond, Outer Banks, Badlands, Wildtrak, and Heritage Edition trims. Both the Bronco Raptor and Heritage Limited will continue to be handled through a separate allocation process, however.
In terms of discounts, customers won’t be able to obtain any on the 2023 Ford Bronco, unsurprisingly, while ongoing supply chain issues have also prompted the automaker to make revisions to some of the SUV’s available sound system configurations, too.

It’s hard to believe that this is the same company, that in the 60’s, was able to ramp up
production of the (then) new Mustang to where they could sell over a MILLION Mustangs.
This was done WITHOUT today’s modern computer technology too! Seems the current bunch would rather use excuses than find ways to get the job done. Sad.
In the fine tradition of modern day Ford, the ordering system is working piss poor today. They’ve handled the reopening of the order banks like selling tickets to a Taylor Swift concert. It’s as if the entire management of Ford crawled out from under a rock last week and said “I think I’ll run the oldest automaker in America, it should be easy.” How in the name of all that is holy, did they not give each dealership they’re allocated number of Bronco’s. Give them two weeks or so to get their orders placed and everything runs smoothly. (well as smoothly as Ford can run under today fantastically incompetent leadership). Ask a fifth grader for help, they couldn’t possibly do any worse.
According to my local Ford dealership – the order banks didn’t open today and will open tomorrow the 28th. Also, they are saying it’s for the 2024 model, not the 2023. It’s been chaotic to say the least…my my my…
Mine was open on the 27th and got ordered. but they never mentioned it would be for the 2024 model. So wondering if different dealerships get put first on the list because they sell more.????
Apparently my dealership wasn’t able to order on the 27th because they said the “site crashed”. Also, my salesperson was off that day? The whole experience was awful. Ended up moving my reservation to another dealership. He said that it’ll be a 2023 model since what I order didn’t have any commodity restraints and that it’ll likely be built this year. But who knows! (Black Diamond – Mid Package)
Any updates on your build yet? What did you order?
Bank opened… model year IS 2023… have my receipt sitting on the counter. Wasn’t able to upload it.
Any updates on your order since submitting?
847 days. Yep plan on waiting because that’s how long mine took from date of reservation to actually picking it up from my dealer. So 2 years and 3 months. I started out in 2020. So now that you know, quit your whining. My advice, stick to what you want. Don’t be one of those hard top orders that caved for a soft top. Soft top is such a bad look. If you want sasquatch, then wait. I was priced locked but final invoice if I wasn’t was 9 grand more, 55 to 64,000. Keep that in mind too. So be patient. REALLY PATIENT.
I hope you are enjoying your Bronco. I will be patient and not cave on changing my order . My savings account is just accruing interest.
I was one of the first orders. Super custom. Kept seeing other people with Broncos. Year 1 they sent posters a freaking hammock a calendar etc. Finally after two years my dealership guy called and said hey let’s take a few items off to better your odds. I got my Bronco order confirmed then a pic of it on the assembly line. Then it sat on a container for a few days because of some train strike and finally Oct.2022 I got mine. I ordered the extra stuff I wanted some from the dealership and some off the internet. I love my Bronco and it was worth the heartbreaking wait. 2 plus years. Good luck folks.
