2021 Ford Bronco production could start as early as next March
A new report outlines a potential start of production later next year
It's been more than two months since Ford took the covers off of its long-awaited Bronco earlier this summer, and since then, production information has been few and far between. But with countless pre-orders and thousands of eager fans waiting, we might have some more details on when the Bronco will go into production.
While we're still nowhere near delivery day, a leaked photo coming to us via the bronco6g forum shows a production schedule for Ford's entire lineup, with the Bronco slated for a "March 2021" production start.
This document comes from Precision Inventory Management, which according to forum user broncoj11 is a "service / software used by dealers to handle new vehicle ordering for Ford and Lincoln stores." With the Bronco is listed as "Expected Job 1 in March 2021." From what we can see, Job 1 means that it's the first production run of the Bronco.
And while it is exciting to hear that Ford may soon be putting a dent into their 165,000 pre-orders, production will likely be delayed for another month, until April, as other Ford production timelines seem to be slipping.
However, Ford's previous promise of a June 2021 delivery timeline seems to be holding up, as even with an April 2021 production start, cars should still be able to reach dealers in time. As in all likelihood, Ford will likely go through a production ramp, with plants not operating at full capacity form the getgo.
