Ford Offers Tips On How to Acquire Its Unobtainable Bronco SUVs
Santa would love to deliver new Ford Broncos to thousands of impatient adult-children/reservation holders, but it seems there just aren’t enough Broncos to go around—and let’s face it, Santa’s elves aren’t quite familiar enough with Ford’s assembly line to be of much help. If you’re looking for a miniature bucking horse figurine, or even a real bronco—the animal—maybe Santa can be of service.
If you’re looking for ways to improve the chances of getting your Ford Bronco order scheduled, though, the interwebs revealed some tips that may—or may not—unlock your Bronco from production purgatory.
According to Bronco6G, through a memo sent to Ford dealers, Ford has suggested removing three specific parts that may delay your Bronco build. The three “constrained commodities” that could put the brakes on a Bronco? Paint Protection Film, the Trailer Tow package, and the MIC (Molded-in-Color) Hard Top (shocker). That hard top, which has proven problematic for Ford, is standard on the two-door Broncos.
Sorry, we’re just the messengers, and these are just tips, not guarantees, and yes, newly made Bronco order delivery estimates are being pushed back years. So shoot your shot?
Here are the specifics of the alleged cheat-sheet to expediting your Bronco build:
“Remove From Order And Install Later (part #’s listed below – must be ordered via parts department):
Paint Protection Film (nationally capacity is 2% vs. 14% order mix)
- Alternative: Paint Protection Film (Part #VM2DZ-2120000-A)
Trailer Tow (national capacity is 31% vs. 62% order mix)
- Alternative: Trailer Hitch Kit (#MB3Z-19D520-A) & Wiring Harness for Trailer Hitch Kit (#FT1Z-15A416-A)
MIC Hard Top (switch to soft top w/ prep kit on 4 door)”
It sure feels like there are barely any Ford Broncos running wild—and if your beloved dream Bronco isn’t in your driveway yet, we don’t blame you for feeling this way—but that’s not quite the case. November 2021 sales and production numbers show decent increases over October, as shown on Bronco6G. November Bronco sales totaled 8,287 vehicles sold, and November Bronco production comes in at 10,504 Broncos produced. Year-to-date numbers indicate 25,855 Broncos sold and 43,711 Broncos produced.
Good luck pushing your order along.
