Yep, I understand the early orders with the upgrade packages were only available with the moonroof included, when I placed my order May, the BL was no longer available to be ordered in any trim and the BB and OB packages could only be ordered without the moonroof. It seems like the orders without the moonroof are moving through the system at a faster pace (with less push backs in scheduling) than those with.
At this point I wish they would reach out and ask if you want to scrap the moonroof for a quicker build date.

What is the cutoff point you can make changes to your order? I thought as long as you don't have a window sticker you could alter the original order.

I think its a few weeks before production some changes can be made. But Ford does not offer a Badlands No Moonroof Package. No Moonroof Package is for Big Bend and Outer Banks only. So to take moonroof off of Balands you have to remove entire Badlands Package per Order Guide published in May...

Yes BB and OB packages only, I was addressing his question deleting the moonroof on the OB , OB package he has on order. Not much help for the unfortunate people that ordered or want anything Badlands. I would have gladly ordered the BL, BL package less the moonroof if that would have been an option when I ordered but it wasn't. The entire Badland line was removed from ordering when I finally got around to ordering.

Doesnt make any sense Ford won"t allow Badland orders to have the moonroofs remove but keep rest of Package. But that is how Ford wants to do it...

There must be more shortages than the moonroof on the Badlands to the totally removed from ordering.

I asked my dealer if I could get the moonroof removed from my BL/BL and still keep the remainder of the BL package and I was told no.

Just read this: https://www.motortrend.com/news/2022-ford-maverick-everything-we-know.

Just what we need - another vehicle using many Bronco Sport parts.
Hope it doesn't offer a moon roof, 360, tow package, AC cruise control, etc.
Same manufacturing plant too. They are introducing too many new models at once without sufficient parts in the supply chain. Maverick should have waited a bit in order to fulfill delayed bronco sport orders first. But what do I know? I don't work for Ford ... I am only a customer, barring any further delays, who will wait six months from order placement to vehicle delivery.

You should feel lucky. I ordered a cactus gray BL+BL with tow on 2/22. Build week went from 6/28 to 8/2 to 8/9. I basically gave up and my dealer is now looking for a new Wrangler for me. I fully expect the Bronco Sport build week to get pushed back again and again. Earlier I JOKED about having my Bronco in time to pick up our Thanksgiving turkey. Now it isn’t funny FMC. This experience has turned me sour on Ford.
I don't think that's fair. There are supply shortages and hold-ups everywhere. Go to Walmart Sunday in the evening the shelves are empty. I think Ford is just being as upfront as they can be given the supply chain issues, and all of these issues come from covid. Unless you desperately need a car, why not wait for the car you want.

Not true except maybe in your area. I get groceries every week at Walmart and the shelves are well stocked. Our Kohl’s store has as many clothes as ever and our Best Buy seems to be well stocked. At 67 I’m not going to wait forever for a Bronco Sport. Life is too short to wait 7 months.
I wonder how many small dealerships will go under due to Fords mistakes.
