Strong demand could delay customer deliveries of the new Bronco.
The much-anticipated 2021 Ford Bronco finally made its debut last week. As expected, the iconic off-roader's return has already been a massive success for Ford. Demand is so strong that the limited-edition 2021 Ford Bronco First Edition sold out just a few hours after it was unveiled. While Ford will be pleased with the Bronco's early success, there is a downside to the off-roader's popularity - customer deliveries could take longer than Ford originally predicted.
As discovered by the Bronco6G Forum, you could be waiting a long time for your Ford Bronco to arrive. Originally, customer deliveries for the new Bronco were expected to start in April 2021.
However, a note on the Ford Bronco's reservation website reveals that the delivery target for the two-door and four-door Bronco has slipped from April to June 2021. But because Ford is receiving so many reservations for the new Bronco, the Blue Oval automaker is now warning that "deliveries may extend into the 2022 calendar year."
Yes, you could be waiting two years for your Bronco to be delivered, so you might want to place a reservation sooner rather than later. Once a reservation has been made, customers will be able to convert their reservation into an order with their preferred Ford dealer.
The dealer will then provide a delivery estimate in early 2021. Placing a reservation for the Ford Bronco or Ford Bronco Sport requires a refundable $100 deposit.
As standard, the 2021 Ford Bronco is powered by a 2.3-liter EcoBoost four-cylinder with 270 horsepower and 310 lb-ft of torque. An optional 2.7-liter turbo V6 is also available, which produces 310 hp and 400 lb-ft. Power is sent to all four wheels through either a ten-speed automatic or a seven-speed manual transmission. Pricing for the two-door Bronco starts at $28,500 plus a $1,495 destination and delivery fee, but pricing information for the four-door Bronco is being kept under wraps for now.
