One temporary solution they’re attempting is stocking up on used vehicles, which could partially explain why so many US dealers are heading to Canadian auctions, frustrating their Great White North counterparts. Unfortunately, that still won’t be enough and dealer employees whose income is mostly commission-based are rightly concerned. Some dealers have decided to set up funds for employees to borrow from and repay once things get back to normal.
Ford initially had quite a 2021 planned. The Ford Bronco, Bronco Sport, and Mustang Mach-E are all on sale but total output will now suffer. At this point, Ford and its dealers are hoping things return to normal in 2022.
