The chip crisis continues to plague automakers, but things have gotten better in recent months. So, it’s entirely possible that Ford may have paused production on the cheaper model and is prioritizing chips for the pricier models with higher profit margins.
Of course, this is all speculation for the time being. We’ve reached out to Ford for comment and will update the article once we receive communication from the brand.
What’s interesting, however, is that Ford has not even provided an estimated build or delivery window. This suggests that the entry-level Bronco may not be available for the foreseeable future. It’s unlikely that Ford wouldn’t let customers know the vehicle had already sold out for the 2023 model year.
