Ford said they hit the 100,000 order mark by the end of AUGUST. It wasn't even available for 3 full months yet. You would have to think at LEAST 100,000 more were ordered the next 3-4 months after that. Worst case scenario...25% ordered were dropped. VERY LOW estimate...150,000 ordered. Ford hasn't made HALF that.
I hadn't seen that. Can you post a link?

We know what kind of gas mileage hit you took, but what kind of features hit did you take? I personally like the Frontier, but to get one that costs the same as my Maverick Lariat Lux Hybrid would be giving up a lot of equipment. My Chapman Maverick cost is $29,300 plus tax. The Frontiers I was finding, even without markups, were S models and very basic. More in line with the equipment of a Maverick XL, although with halogen (yuck) headlights.

Even a mid-trim SV model - still missing most things from a Lariat Lux - was $15,000 more than my Maverick cost MSRP vs MSRP. They were willing to deal, but it was still going to end up costing $10,000 more for a truck with less equipment. Perhaps more ability and definitely more engine.. but still not near as nice.
MSRP was $32,890 on the SV Frontier. I didn't get the leather, heated seats and co-pilot 360, but pretty much everything else I wanted. I did pay closer to $38k after taxes, tag, etc. Definitely not what I wanted. I wanted the Hybrid Maverick with 42mpg, which fits more with the use I would need. I don't need the ability to tow or haul heavy loads. I am still hopeful I might get my order in and be able to sell the Frontier without too much loss over the next 6 months. But I just couldn't wait any longer and used 2020 Ford Ranger's with 40k miles were listed for $34k.

Good news!
According to my dealership 6 of their 7 September Hybrid orders and an October 2nd order they have were bumped up to priority 2 as of this morning.
This should be a sweet scheduling week for September hybrid folks!
Just FYI, I have been Priority 2 since October... still not scheduled.

Just Google Ford maverick 100,000 orders for more. They haven't gave any recent numbers though. But people were ordering hybrids until December and eco boost through January

I honestly don't understand how people's brains work. You went from "literally no possible way" to eventually basing this on a reservation number that has zero firm meaning for actual orders.

Where does this complete conviction come from?

It comes from the fact that I ordered my hybrid on June 10th and was already rolled over to a 2023, and so have lots of other people around the country. I was one of the first in the world to order a 2022 Maverick and won't even get one. Since my dealer told me the bad news on Jan 28th, lots of other people have since been informed too.

It's happening. Each passing week more and more people are getting told their orders are getting rolled over. Yet for some reason, no one wants to believe it unless Ford puts out an official message on it...as if Ford has been good and constantly giving out official updates regarding the Maverick.

Here is proof of my order that still hasn't been scheduled.

I sold my 22 Frontier to Carvana for 34500 after going through a similar process to the one you described. Used they're selling at around 37k on Carvana/Carmax, but there are a lot of them out there on the lot new for that price, so hopefully you're able to get a good price when the time comes. I paid MSRP. Even with the tax hit, I'll come out well ahead on my Granger Maverick at 19k.
Fortunately, my wife and I now work at home, so we can just drive her car and wait on the Mav. Frontier is a solid truck, you'll probably only get about 20 combined, although I've been up around 26-27 on highway trips. Good luck!

I sure would like to see that message from your dealer about getting rolled over to MY23.
Your proof on how long you have waited seems valid. I ordered 6-12 and just got scheduled last week.
I have not seen any notes from dealers or Ford saying specifically that orders have actually been rolled over to 2023. I may have missed posts saying that so I will try searching for that again.

It's only been random dealerships, usually small dealerships, that most likely already went over their allocation. I called Customer Service and the Complaint line multiple times. They confirmed my order is still valid, in the queue, and inputted I'm correctly, but can not tell me when, or what model year my truck will be.

I fear that my dealership may have been one of the dealerships Ford punished for marking up vehicles because I live in a high cost area where people can afford and don't even mind mark ups.

But I promise you, the news given to me and others about rolled over orders is real. It's like we put on a giant conspiracy for nothing. I'm pissed.

I don't think its even possible to be "rolled over" into a MY2023 vehicle because there isn't an official MY2023 vehicle yet is there? It Doesn't sound like something Ford Co would do at all, especially without a formal statement.

I have no idea if all the orders will be produced. But what you are claiming is something entirely different. First it was that you were certain they didn't have the capacity. Then it changed to somehow reservations = orders. Then the latest thing is a "my dealer told me". You're all over the map and not adding anything fact-based to the discussion.

No offense intended to you Mite-o-Dan, but I think the thing folks aren't understanding/grasping here is that the "random dealerships" are not rolling people into 2023 due to Ford telling them to, or due to Ford telling them that the remaining 2022 orders from their dealership will not be manufactured in time to be a 2022. What is happening is that dealerships are taking it upon themselves/"going rogue" to decide that a customer order wont make the 2022 manufacturing cutoff. Which is nuts. The dealers have ZERO insight into this. Ford IS NOT telling these "random dealerships" that they need to reach out to their customers (all of them, only some of them? If only some of them, how have they identified which ones????) informing them that their order will be rolled to 2023. Prove me wrong. Show me communication from Ford corporate to any dealer saying this. It isn't happening. Dealers are simply getting as worried as we all are, and are trying to get ahead of the game by telling customers that their order wont make it this model year to manage expectations. Then when the truck magically IS produced in 2022, the customer is ecstatic. If the customer walks away now when told it will need to be a 2023, the dealer can justify it to Ford later by saying "the customer could not wait that long", and sell it to someone else. Win win for the dealer.

If Ford was already telling "random dealerships" that some/all of their open orders won't make it, we would have seen the memo posted here and all over all the other online forums (Facebook Maverick groups, Reddit Sub, etc..). So far all we have seen is......nothing but people saying "My dealers told me this. My dealer told me that". And in small numbers. If Ford had done some calculation and been telling random dealers to call their customers with the bad news, what do you think the numbers would be? 100 orders impacted? 10,000 orders impacted? Doesn't it seem odd to you that even though this forum only represents a small segment of the overall order numbers, we have only heard a tiny handful of people posting that their order is "guaranteed" to be rolled to 2023? And I have not checked each one, but I know the majority also say in their post "I called Ford and Ford says my order is still good and waiting for production. Ford corporate tells me all is good". How does that fit in with the claim that dealers are already being told to inform customers of a rollover to 2023? It literally contradicts the entire story.

If it were me being told this by my "dealer", I would go up the chain in the dealership. If it was the random salesperson, I would be talking to the "New Car Sales Manager". If it was the "New Car Sales Manager", I would be talking to the General Manager. So on and so forth. Eventually you will reach a level of management that will admit this is all BS and that someone lower on the totem pole took it upon themselves to make some decisions on behalf of Ford.

All this to mean, I am not doubting you and not doubting you were told what you were told. But I don't believe for even a moment that it is accurate information. Someone at the dealership is either flat out lying, or is majorly misguided in what they are telling customers.

Sorry, needed to vent.
