The launch of the 2021 Ford Bronco SUV inches closer and closer. Seemingly with each passing day, there’s a new key detail to report on this reborn icon, and today is no different. Per the Bronco6G Forum, the 2021 Ford Bronco production will commence on March 22, 2021 – which is congruent with its Spring 2021 timeline. The new Bronco will be built exclusively at the Ford Michigan Assembly Plant in Wayne, Michigan. The Ford Ranger is built there also.
Before 2021 Ford Bronco production begins, Initial Order Acceptance is expected on December 7, 2020. This is when Ford will allow its dealers to officially begin placing orders. The chart shared by Bronco6G also claims that production scheduling for the 2021 Ford Bronco will begin on January 14, 2021. Vehicles are not expected to be built in concordance with which orders were received. Anything from the availability of paint to a particular option could jump an order to the front or the back of the line, and there’s really no way of knowing how this will unfold.
The scheduling chart shared by the forum also states that the 2021 Ford Bronco Sport production began on October 26 in Hermosillo, Mexico. This “baby Bronco,” as it’s affectionately known, is expected to begin its first customer deliveries in the coming days.
According to early reservation data, the majority of Ford Bronco buyers are opting for a higher trim level. In fact, 26 percent of buyers have opted for the top-tier Wildtrak model, while the Badlands variant is the second most popular trim with 20 percent. The 7,000 units of the exclusive Bronco First Edition will account for just under 4 percent of total (but its production is limited), meaning that the Base, Big Bend, Black Diamond and Outer Banks account for the remaining 50 percent of the orders.
