I like the wood in the green interior, but those avocado colored seats are a tough pill to swallow :hs:
same.....love the walnut, and I'll be sitting on the leather staring at the wood so seems like it will work

The pics are the black interior, not sure if you were able to tell, I don't love the wood on the black interior, I don't like it the wood on the white interior either, but LOVE the wood on the green interior.

People on reddit are getting them in 6 months

The poster here plus one or two guys in the comments for example:




something is obviously a miss / unique about a few customer situations (I have no idea what) but it's not widespread for them to do that as if it was, it would cause quite an uproar with the whiny preorder holders who've been waiting 3 years and counting.

If it's real, that's cool, I will be slightly in that boat as I'm non LE order (ordered 4/1/21) so I'm at 13 months and my window is July - September this year so I'll still get my non-LE truck prior to some LE pre-orders like the folks with Ocean Coast interior.

For the S? I thought they got pushed back

They are delivering from what I keep seeing, but, I think they're still in the very early stages of ramping up R1S builds, the employees did not get discounts on R1S versus they did get discounted pricing for the R1T so I think there are way less employee orders for R1S and that means there's going to be a shorter build time to get through all the employees before they start delivering to customers and from what I can gather they have delivered to some non-employees already.

yeah we'll see

I have a variety of shit ordered and coming so I'm not stressed about it if I don't get it soon, but an easy build was the ticket to two fast Bronco deliveries for me so its always fun to try

my friend ordered a hardtop bronco....something went wrong, he was told after waiting 6-9 months that they'd have to start over, his dad knows the VP, he got his truck the next week..............funny when you know people in the right places, things happen LOL

I think whats happening is people who preordered but have no ways of financing a $70k+ vehicle are backing out and that inventory is getting sold to exact matches

I did just talk to someone that ordered Sept 2021 so that's 8 months or so, but I also have a friend who ordered day one in 2019 and his truck gets delivered Tuesday, gotta be geographic location as primary reason for delivery anomolies.

I haven't received anything even resembling an estimate of when I can take delivery. I already had their preferred spec of interior color, so you'd think it would be sooner than later but who knows.

perhaps you need to head to the showroom and take a sales advisor to the back

Ahh I got more info, that guy placed order 9/21, original deliver window was Oct - Dec 2022, but they reached out WAY early b/c they had a truck available already going to where he lives (assuming that buyer cancelled) so he moved WAY up all he had to do was sign the paperwork, so that actually explains the anomaly as I know they're shipping cars to destinations and if they do not pass inspection they make repairs at the service center....and I think there's also the opportunity for them to ship before the paperwork is 100% final, since my friend in Dallas signed his paperwork and before he sent the wire they said it was already in transit so that makes 2 ways this could happen.

Nice

I think the free exterior color and free interior color combo with the free wheels will be the most popular amongst the poors placing wishful reservations so that's my build. If I get it soon, great. If not, oh well.

I should place a second order from my wife's address in Chicago and a third from my parent's place in the NYC suburbs to maximize my location gambling

Has anyone seen one of these trucks...in the wild...not in a presser's hands?

There are quite a few running around here these days.

I went to a preorder event in March and got to drive one, and spend a lot of time with one.

Absolutely badass vehicles.
