The used car market is nuts right now. Checked Kelly Blue Book on my 2017 Subaru Impreza value and both trade and private party values are $3k to $4k higher than about 6 weeks ago! I hope this holds up until the Maverick is finally available. Having said that, I still need to find out if my wife and I like how it drives. I was wild about a car back and. The 90s until I found out the center console dug into the side of my leg.

Anyone out there know which orders get priority at Ford. If a Maverick is reserved online, as soon as ordering is available, does that order get filled before an order originated at a dealership? Or do the dealer orders get priority?

I would assume that online orders are essentially pushed through a dealership. Ford is not legally allowed to sell vehicles direct to consumer. That being said, I think it is always is FCFS; unless you order a trim package that suffers from some sort of delay.

This is interesting info:
According to my Sister who is an auditor for Ford corporation:

Any new dealers of vehicles don't actually 'own' their cars. It is only after an agreement is completed, the dealers will 'buy' them from the manufacturer. They have a set amount of time to transfer the paperwork. Her job is to go to a dealership early in the morning before opened and count the cars that have been sent. If the dealership has some out for employees/service, they have only a few hours to prove, if not, their dealership would be flagged and at worse shut down. At least that is what her Ford job is in the MidWest.
