Back in 2018, Ford announced their plans to taper off production of their sedans in North America. The shift in vehicle focus was directed wholeheartedly towards the production of trucks and SUVs. The move was initially met with some discomfort as we saw the Ford Fiesta, Ford Taurus, and the beloved Ford Fusion all eventually become discontinued models. But, we are now witnessing exactly what the Ford executives wanted to happen, and the numbers don’t lie. 2021 Ford Bronco production is a big task at hand as the Ford SUV has 125,000 orders that need to be filled, just as the automaker readies to launch two other crucial vehicles: the Ford Maverick, and F-150 Lightning pickup trucks.

Ford Bronco Production

To avoid any confusion, those 125,000 orders are actual fillable orders, not just reservations with micro-fractional deposits that may or may not become a Bronco rolling off the assembly line. Unfortunately, more than enough monkey wrenches have been thrown into the Ford Bronco’s production plans since March of 2020, a series of delays that we compiled in an article earlier this May.

Now that the global pandemic is more history than current event, and the wagon has been somewhat hitched back to the horse, soon-to-be 2021 Ford Bronco owners are patiently waiting with production currently underway. With the current number of Bronco orders that need to be filled, you’ll likely have to wait two years to get your hands on a new one. Even though global microchip availability won’t reach a steady flow again till 2022, Ford still has a lot of ground to cover.

Ford Is Hot Right Now

The 2022 Ford Maverick and the 2022 Ford F-150 Lightning are gearing up to take the truck market by storm. As noted in an article by Motor Trend, the new Ford Maverick small truck and F-150 Lightning have garnered 40,000 and 100,000 reservations, respectively. Even with all of these reservations piling up, and delay after delay over the last year, Ford has made it clear they will not be cutting corners with its vehicles. What does mean however, is that production of these trucks and SUVs will be slow but steady at the moment.
