CERTAIN FORD BRONCO ORDERS TO LOSE NAVIGATION SYSTEMS

Both Connected and Built-In Connected Navigation Are To Be Tossed Out

Preproduction model shown. Available summer 2022. Limited availability.

The 2022 Ford Bronco is in high demand, so much so that the 2022 model year is no longer available to configure and have delivered to your door. That being said, the 2023 model year should open order books soon and there may already be a way to jump in line early. It appears Ford is starting something soon though that may perturb customers looking to get lost off-roading. The Bronco navigation systems seem to be making their exit from the production process.

The ongoing chip shortage crisis strikes again.

As of May 30th, dealer stock orders will not be made with Connected Navigation or Connected Built-In Navigation. Bronco Nation was able to grab a glimpse at some communication that went out to Ford’s dealer network in regard to this change, and all the details were broken down bit by bit.

The nutshell version however is this: the omission of Bronco nav systems pertains to dealer stock production models only at this time, and customer retail models will not be affected. In an effort to atone for this loss of luxury, Ford buyers will receive a credit towards MSRP, $50 for connected navigation and $695 for connected built-in navigation. Third party navigation systems remain accessible, and functional (Apple Car Play and Android Auto).
