The 2021 Ford Bronco off-road SUV received 190,000 reservations after its debut last summer. However, Ford cannot meet the demand due to the global shortage of semiconductor chips and hardtop production/quality issues.

Last month, 77% of Ford’s total sales were all-wheel-drive or four-wheel-drive vehicles. Ford announced in August that all unscheduled 2021 Bronco Hardtop Orders would be moved to the 2022 model years. This unfortunate decision was made after quality problems were discovered with the MIC hardtops manufactured by Webasto. Ford decided to replace all MIC tops with new ones.
