Customer deliveries for the Bronco Sport will start first, but you'll have to wait a bit longer for the standard Bronco.
The long and arduous wait for the new 2021 Ford Bronco is nearly over. On July 9, Ford will finally show the reborn Bronco to the world, in what is undoubtedly one of the most anticipated new model reveals of the year. Ford probably should have checked this date, however, because it happens to coincide with O.J. Simpson's birthday.
We know when the Ford Bronco will debut, but when will you actually be able to buy it? As discovered by the Bronco6G forum, a Ford dealer has revealed on Facebook when orders and deliveries for the Ford Bronco and Bronco Sport will start.
According to the dealer, orders for the smaller Ford Bronco Sport will start on July 1, 2020 before customer deliveries begin this November. Off-road enthusiasts will have to wait longer for the full-size Bronco, however. The dealer claims the order banks for the larger Ford Bronco will start in December 2020.
Customer deliveries reportedly won't start until April 2021. If this rumor is accurate, the timing of the Ford Bronco Sport orders suggests the smaller SUV will debut before the regular Bronco on July 9. Ford hasn't confirmed when orders for the new Bronco will begin yet, but we'll find out more next month.
Inevitably, production shutdowns have delayed the launch of Ford's reborn off-roader. Ford was originally going to debut the new Bronco at the 2020 New York Auto Show in April, but the event was canceled due to the global pandemic, delaying the reveal by several months. A user of the Bronco6G forum also claims that customer deliveries would have begun in January or February 2021 without the delays.
The 2021 Ford F-150 will also debut next week on June 25. Unlike the Bronco, customer deliveries for the all-new F-150 are still slated to start by the end of this year.
