Earlier this month, Ford revealed the 2021 Bronco to a tidal wave of positive reception. The automaker also opened to bookings at $ 100 a pop that night, and a new report suggests Ford could have huge success on its hand. Bronco6G.com says Ford has racked up about 230,000 Bronco reservations.
The post came from one of the board’s administrators, citing “one of our trusted sources.” We don’t know the exact number of bookings, which will need to be converted to actual sales in December, but that matches other comments from Ford. This week, a Ford spokesperson said Car and driver that some reservation holders may not receive their Bronco until 2022, 18 months from today.
Ford plans to start Bronco production next spring, with first deliveries starting in June 2021. If Ford says some customers have to wait months after production begins to receive their Broncos, then the 230,000 claim reservations seem correct. Ford has claimed reservations for the limited-production First Edition models sold out within hours. Ford had to double its production to 7,000 units to meet demand.
The Bronco will compete with the Jeep Wrangler, which has seen sales north of 225,000 in 2018 and 2019. The Bronco will be available in two and four-door configurations with many aftermarket parts available at the factory at launch. . While reservation holders were able to secure a seat for just $ 100, the MSRP is much higher. The starting price for the two-door is $ 28,500, while the four-door starts at $ 33,200. The destination charge of $ 1,495 was also not added. Those who grabbed the First Edition models will shell out $ 48,875 for two doors and $ 51,370 for the four-door model.
If you’re looking forward to everything Bronco, but don’t want to wait, you can go for the Bronco Sport. The 230,000 Bronco reservations do not include the Bronco Sport. Reservation holders are expected to place orders this summer before deliveries begin before the end of the year. It’s much better than waiting until 2022.
