    Bronco Sport production to be paused due to supply shortages

    perspective would say, supply is short, demand is high, it's a sellers market to make cash. The filp side of that is, when you have no idea how long it will be to make a sale, you sell what you can to keep income stable and hope for optimism with chip supply increases. I don't see a magic chip...

    ETA was may 28. THE PENDING shows a trucking company from Tennessee. I suppose 24 days ETA is about right.

    Bronco Sport production to be paused due to supply shortages

    Official: Ford Bronco Production Shutting Down carbuzz link title says a lot. May 17 May 24 two week shut down of the FULL Bronco in Wayne as it just gets off the ground. Citing parts for roofs, tow, and chips as a prime concern. My dealer finally responded and indicated anyone placing orders...

    for the first time, the sport I am considering purchasing off the lot showed on palsapp. Still shows pending, but sounds like that could be within the week.

    Looks like the delay will get worse

    it's funny to see these models come and go and come back and go again...The concept of interchangeable parts across many lines makes this even more practical. The problem becomes materials and cutting margins. But the flu pandemic has emphasized supply chain weakness leads to billion-dollar...

    Looks like the delay will get worse

    oh zero doubt and I've heard many start ups are working to jump in and fill some gaps, but it will get worse before better. I'd guess anyone with a build in motion is OK...but going forward it may be nearly impossible. I would guess once sports are filled, they shift chips to the F-150S sitting...

    did you ask about extending your lease or are you just ready to roll and deal with it for a bit to save some cash?

    Looks like the delay will get worse

    Hermosillo Assembly Plant in Hermosillo, Sonora, Mexico is down through the week of May 10. From that article. Sounds like it's nothing particularly new at this point. Still anything can happen but Bronco sport orders in the cue should start moving.

    White letters in or out? (BFG KO2)(TIRES)

    Lol...OLD SCHOOL OUT then thanks for clarification. They look sweet that way but personal once again.

    White letters in or out? (BFG KO2)(TIRES)

    I didn't vote because I'd say it's personal. I think those putting silver on or over them look really good. I feel like the black on black grills really gets lost. I think the white on back looks cheap. I feel they could have done a better job with badging. I like the pressed lettering stamped...

    87 vs 91 Octane?

    personally...I had an old Ranger I bought new. I took a trip to Florida, always ran 87 octane. The station I filled up at only had 93 available. I did what I had to do...half an hour later the warning lights came on. Took it to the dealer down there, blew all my O2 sensors with the rich gas and...

    'S' in Sport crooked...

    That should be a very easy fix. It's just adhesive. Some have used a heat gun and dental floss to work all the letters off. You should be able to get one letter off and reapply it. Dealer should do it for you but I doubt it's worth the trip. Use some painters tape to line it back up, apply new...

    Waiting room

    Yeah, it sounds like it's just a shift to the full Bronco. I'm hearing....chips are not the bigger issue for now, they feel they have a good allocation but want and need to get the big bronco off the ground. Tow kits, hard top roofs for the big bronco appear to be the biggest challenge. Who...

    I feel the pain. They are shut down at least until the week of the 17th. Good news it will likely be one of the first on the line.

    June 7 isn't too bad. Assuming it gets built that week, should put you first week of July for delivery

    Removing Grill Letters

    Well the results look outstanding. Well done. The effort(s) paid off. I am really liking the silver look the more I see it.

    Bronco Sport production to be paused due to supply shortages

    Pretty standard at this point. The second badlands I am hopeful it for is just that, a cancelled order coming in later than the buyer wanted but would work out for me

    What do you use to clean the OEM rubber floor mats?

    Many years ago when white lettering was the norm on tires we used westleys bleche-white which is now black magic bleche-white. Black magic tire cleaner. It was great for getting grime off the rubber and keeping white letters bright. Just a thought

    FYI - Just revealed/introduced - Ford Explorer 2021 Timberline

    I think it's in line with the direction ford is headed with Raptor, sport, bronco, and other related off road capable options. Iron is hot strike it. They know it can provide a full new market without a lot of change which means profit. Sales of the sport and bronco without question played a...

    Will we get Blue-Cruise for our 2021 Bronco Sports?

    nope I don't doubt you and I absolutely know others who LOVE the driving experience. At times I do as well, but others, a typical commute, if I had a car that would just do it safely for me...I am not opposed to the IDEA. That assuming you still have human control at any point. As to the...
