I do know that the optional 18" Wheel for Big Bend are no longer available. It was disclosed on the last Dealer Order Guide (05/01/21) that was posted to this forum. Maybe they are thinking OB instead of BB?

18” Machined-face Aluminum Ebony Black-painted Wheel “Not Available for the remainder of the 21MY” 6

For details as to what is no longer available - go here.

The optional 18" wheels for BB are the same as to what are the standard wheels for OB. So I could see there being a shortage of those wheels and them remvoing the option for BB in order to fullfill the OB orders.

You don't have aces to the Ford Order site? What about the email that Ford sent to acknowledge that you did place an order?
honestly that may be a dealer preference/process. The guy I built through insisted that's not how it works, they never supply Ford with personal info or emails. He gets all the updates and forwards on to the buyer. I explained many people on the sport forum have direct emails and information. His response was they must have it confused with the full size bronco... I don't blame him, I think their business model is simply different. I had no issues with his method, guy has been at it for a very long time and was always very honest and up front which is why I chose to work with him. The covid delays were out of his hands, and he said he completely understood why I went a different route. It's possible canadian dealers have a different process but it's not exclusive by country. I still haven't received an email from Ford directly.

Dealer has to place the order as Customer Ordered and put your email into the order system. If dealer orders as inventory or puts in wrong email then you are not going to get an email about order status. Some dealers may not want to do Customer Ordered vehicles for what ever reason.

They are not the same. 18" Outer Banks are upper RH and optional BB 18" wheels are in the center

I'm sorry I was basing it off the order sheet where they use the same name for both. Thanks for the clarification.

My dealer said tires are also becoming short on supply. He is ordering to stock the common sizes they sell, where he previously just got them from a warehouse. Now they can't reliably get them.
Wow- I have not heard that one yet or seen any reports about it. Gets better na dbetter.
from Ford to halt production of F-150, Bronco Sport and other vehicles due to chip shortage (msn.com)
  • Hermosillo Assembly Plant in Mexico will be down the weeks of June 21 and June 28

My understanding, they only print the window sticker when it's actually in production/shipping
I thought that as well until last Saturday. Two window stickers popped up on the 15th for a white badlands and a cyber orange badlands. I want the orange one so of course that's the one that the dealer sites don't have listed.

Contacted the dealer to ask why and was told that the cyber orange one had only got going at the factory 5 days ago and would take 2 months to arrive at the dealer. The only thing I can figure is that white exteriors get higher part priority as Ford thinks white is the most popular color in the United States.

At the time I didn't know about the 2 week shutdown coming in June, but even if that is figured into the two month timeframe that still means the plant is a month behind on having enough parts to make basic dealer ordered badlands. Or maybe the sales guy was just wrong. Guess I will find out over the next month.

Looks like invoiced on May 18 this date will not change The date below of May 19 in the white will change when actually built which is right in line with your schedule of May 24. You are next in line!! This confirms yours is moving along.
