What happened to the all-new 2021 Ford Bronco after the spread of the Coronavirus which causes COVID-19
As you may remember, July 2020 witnessed the launch of the new Bronco after years of waiting, the car that came to compete with the 2020 Jeep Wrangler. However, official information was recently revealed confirming that the global closures which was implemented to limit the spread of the Coronavirus epidemic resulted in delaying the production of the new Bronco model at Ford’s plant. This means that the date of the arrival of the Ford Bronco model to the American company network of dealers will be slightly behind the previously specified date.
The information available to our team at ArabGT indicates that Ford recently sent an official letter to its agents announcing the delay in the delivery of the new Bronco model, which will be sold to customers during the summer of 2021 instead of the spring. This decision resulted in the postponement of receiving pre-purchase orders made by customers wishing to obtain the newest of 2021 Ford cars, which was supposed to take place in mid-January and now it was postponed to mid-March, God willing.
Those wishing to get a new Ford Bronco with a manual gearbox as part of the optional Sasquatch package, have to wait until this version arrives at the end of 2021 as a 2022 model.
The American company did not specify how the Coronavirus resulted in the delay of the production of the new Ford Bronco model, we do not know whether the problem was inside Ford’s factories or because of delay in the supply of essential parts for manufacturing.
It should be noted that the new Bronco model registered more than 200,000 reservations, and the company expects that the majority of customers will wait to obtain the newest SUV from Ford.
