Delayed BL from Jan 26 build week to Feb 8, no reason given. Email arrived today. Ugh
Does your BL have a moonroof? From what I've read elsewhere, it is a supply chain issue, particularly with the glass for the moonroof.

Dealer told me Big Bend Package was delayed due to supply issues but he didn't give specifics

Shopping for my brother (special needs and lives with me) & tried ordering Monday. Badlands / Badlands pkg in Cyber Orange was a no go because the leather seats in that color aren't available. Message was "Commodity Restricted." Same for the co-pilot 360+ so we're hoping to pick up the Badlands / Area 51 coming in soon instead.

I just spoke to the dealer - it's the power moonroof causing all the delays - ford is having trouble getting parts for it and I was told that they are looking for a new supplier also.

Just got this from Ford. I was expecting delivery this week. I was told it was built. And yes, it has the OB package. Sigh.....

To ensure your complete satisfaction, we will require additional time before your 2021 Bronco™ Sport SUV Outer Banks is delivered to Front Royal Ford. Your vehicle’s previous estimated delivery range of January 8 2021 and January 14 2021 has been updated to between February 3 2021 and February 9 2021.

There's definitely something going on with in production and not-delivered vehicles from the past couple of weeks. Common thread seems to be the "extra" package

🤔 I wonder if you would have been partially satisfied if it was delivered in the previous estimated delivery range.

but using additional time they will ensure complete satisfaction.. well it’s still well before my delivery and I ordered in July 2020

I never truly expected it to be on time. Just hoped. My dealer said usually 3 days before or after the eta. At this rate, maybe it will miss a muddy Virginia winter.

im just saying the wording in the email sounds to be they are delaying because of a quality control issue instead of unable to build because of no material. Delivery updated to “ensure complete satisfaction” not updated because of “a part shortage”

it definitely sounds like some are being held for some kind of QA thing. Wouldn’t be surprising.

Better to do it now then have it show up with a recall notice I guess.

They probably figured out Jerry was leaving starburst wrappers in the glove boxes and they need to inspect And clear them out. Classic jerry to be honest.

Just got email from my dealer saying my OB just was put on a transport and is on it's way to their lot. This is in WI. For reference, did not get the OB package.
