i Just got a build date Monday of June 28. Now with this new set back, I’m starting to rethink this. I ordered a badlands with BL package and the Co-Pilot360 assist in red. There are two First Editions in red available in my state. I was comparing the BL with the FE and I’m not seeing the benefit vs. the cost. Seeing what is standard on the FE that I was paying for the BL package pans out, but I’m still seeing about a $2500 difference for nothing. And it seems you can’t get the Co-Pilot360 assist on the FE. Other than my impatience, I don’t see where it is worth it. Am I missing something?

For me the biggest difference was I can drive a car I own. I can't drive a car waiting to be built. I wanted BL+BL Co-P+. But I'm almost 6,000 miles in my FE and couldn't be happier.

solid point..forgot about cinco de mayo...yehaaa... post corona...likely to be a big party
Way back in the day my family took delivery of a Country Squire land yacht. There was moldy cheese sandwich pressed between the rear jumper seat amongst many other issues. My dad worked for Ford and checked the build date. January 2nd.

That said I’m 90% sure cinco di mayo is a manufactured gringo holiday.

Glad to hear that. My BL +BL build date kept getting pushed out. As of know, I am supposed to be getting a FE that is on a railcar now. I keep hoping that I won't regret the decision because I loved the look of the Ebony Roast seats in the BL + BL and had added the 360° Co Pilot assist.

Consider this a blessing. You didn't want your BS built that week anyhow.

With the teething problems Ford is having getting this new product out at Hermosillo, what do you think Cinco de Mayo would do for quality?

Pausing production from May 3 to May 17 will hopefully provide Ford with an opportunity to address some of the quality issues we're hearing about.
LOL. Cinco de Mayo isn't even a federal holiday in Mexico. Just another day for most Mexicans. Way more Americans use that day as an excuse to go out and party.

Cinco di mayo is nothing in Mexico like it is up here.

Yeah, my comment was somewhat tounge-n-cheek, except for them needing a break to sort the QC issues.

I placed my order March 30, 2021. My order initially had a scheduled production date for the week of May 17th, I was notified a few minutes ago that its been pushed back to the end of May. Definitely not the worse news (so far). I feel bad for everyone whos production dates have been pushed back several times now. I'm sure my Bronco will follow that same track 😒😞

mine was May 17 as well...haven't heard from my dealer yet, and don't get info from Ford directly. I have a feeling I am in the same boat. End of May isn't terrible but adds to the stress.

What is your build? I ordered Feb. 3 and my build was last scheduled for June 7th.
BL+BL, Tow, Cargo, 360+, Grey roof.
If I get delayed again, I will probably move on and either try to find a fully loaded Big Bend or go to a different vehicle.

I have a BS OB + OB package, EBY/BRN leather trimmed, Cargo and 360 assist 2.0.

I read an article earlier this week saying MFG date for all Big Broncos would be pushed back at least until June. Not sure how your dealers are stocked with Bronco Sports in Nebraska but here in New Jersey, they have a ton of base and Big Bends in stock. The leather seats were a top priority for me or I would have gotten a fully loaded Big Bend as well.

Well I am still June 21 for now. First build date was May 24. So likely I will get the push email at some point again. Hoping Ford engineering is working on quality improvements while we wait with the ongoing delays. If I am lucky might have it by August, maybe....

I'm not deeply concerned about my build date, because my Big Bend is going to be a winter car. I don't need it right away. My current build date is June 28th but I don't think I'll get it even in July. I just hope I get it before the snow flies in northern Michigan.

The real issue is this: at what point does it become a 2022, and will there be changes? Does anybody here work for Ford and know how those model year changes happen?

I wonder if therere will be any different colors, or options in 2022?
