The Ford Dealer meetings are going on in Las Vegas this week. Here's what we know so far, via @alydubois.
  • Ford has brought up the number of speakers in the base sound system from six to seven.
  • HOSS 3.0 is standard on Wildtrak.
  • Azure Gray has been added and Cyber Orange removed. All Cyber Orange orders will be automatically converted to Shadow Black. Work with your dealer to change to a different color.

Hoss is standard eh? That will be cool, if the price increase is minimal lol.

Hey.... Wildtrak is no longer a pointless trim anymore. That's awesome.

And glad they are bumping the number of speakers. Before I took delivery I read all of the posts from people who said the audio system was bad. But I'm not really an audiophile and I've never felt the need to upgrade stock audio systems before, so didn't think it would be an issue. BUT... wow... now that I've taken delivery... I can confirm the audio system truly is terrible. It is easily the worst audio system of any vehicle I've owned in the past 2 decades.

Thank you for the update. When does this shindig wrap? Trying to figure out when I need to start talking to the dealer about the reorder. Most of mine will be the same, but a black truck here in Albuquerque is not a great option, unless you like scalding hot hotness.

Well that is what Crutchfield is for. I have replaced the speakers in every Ford I have ever owned. I bleed Ford blue, but the speakers they use are paper cone junk. I guess the seventh speaker is center dash?

That's what I'm guessing—most logical location.

And yeah, need to check out Crutchfield. I know a lot about speakers from an electrical circuit perspective (electrical engineering major in college), but I have absolutely no idea what makes a speaker system "good" or "bad". Going to have to lean on my younger brother for that. He went through a phase in high school where he was all about upgrading the speakers in his Pathfinder so he could "be bumpin'!"... or... whatever he called it. :rolleyes:

You can certainly spend a lot if you want. I am into audio stuff in the house, just not interested in a loud bassy system in my vehicle. I have managed to preserve my hearing despite the 90's DC punk scene and a lot of overseas time and want to protect it going forward.
I think a good set of mid-price range speakers from a name brand is probably good enough- its still an open air loud vehicle, and there is just so much you can do. One of the benefits of ordering from Crutchfield or one of them like that is you can generally get the plug and play speaker pigtails included. I would also consider marine grade speakers depending on how much you are going to be running about with top and doors off. Maybe not so much in New England, but you guys get like two weeks of summer right ? :)

I just noticed that B6G keeps spreadsheets for each build week. I took a look at the one for 10/17 where 21 people have reported getting build dates for that week. Of those 20 orders,:

17 were ordered after me.
8 of those were ordered in 2022.
Only 3 are Cyber Orange, which proves that they are not making any effort to fulfill orders for the only color going away.

There is no justice in this process. It is truly the most horrid customer service experience I've ever had.

My guess is that dealership allocations is the deciding factor.

Those spreadsheets have VERY little information in the grand scheme of things. My build week spreadsheet had around ~90 people input their information, yet I know Ford produced around ~3,200 Broncos my build week. 2.5% sample size is not much to go off of.

I haven't seen the full data set myself (doubt anyone outside of Ford has), so I have no idea if Ford is actually prioritizing Cyber Orange orders. If I were to guess it is probably a factor in the scheduling, but it's only a factor. If they have 1000 Cyber Orange Badlands Sasquatch orders, but only enough Cyber Orange supply for 500 of those and only enough Sasquatch wheels for 250 of them obviously 75% of those people are unfortunately going to get skipped.

I do 100% completely agree that it sucks though regardless. Those that had Anti-Matter Blue on their order lost their color too and were super disappointed (myself being one of them).

Oh man, I feel the the automatic conversion of Cyber Orange to Shadow Black is going to lead to some VERY VERY grumpy customers. Imagine you have an order for CO (debatably the loudest, most stand-out'ish color in the palate), but when you pick it up, voila it's Shadow Black because you don't read the forums and have a totally apathetic dealer.

Personally, I think Ford should *99 the CO orders to ensure those order holders don't get delivered something they definitely don't want.

*note - I have no issue with Shadow Black at all. I'm just assuming in the Venn diagram of color preference for Bronco's, there is minimal overlap between CO and SB!
