We purchased the mannequin from our local dealer, and were told that would come with an extra 1 year, and 12K miles, on the factory bumper to bumper warranty. Suspiciously, when we picked up the truck and signed the paperwork, there was no mention of this at all. They told us that it was through Ford, and that was all they knew. Do any of you super knowledgeable folks have any info on this?
Thank you!

The warranty starts when the vehicle is titled (i.e. sold to you and registered through your state’s DMV).

So, if it’s already 1 year old and has 12k miles the dealer’s statement is correct.

Your warranty starts from buy/title so technically speaking yes but you are also buying a "used" drove hard vehicle. My dealer said to take it out and put it through your testing LOL

Ours came with 247 miles on it. It was a Mannequin at a small local dealer, where apparently, nobody knew this truck was there. Is there any additional warranty from Ford over the 3/36 for it? Or was the dealer doing what they do, and blowing smoke? They stated that this would come with 4/48.

Yes, dealer mannequins are provided with an extra year and 12,000 miles of warranty. Comes out to be 42-months/42,000 miles. It’s part of the Ford Courtesy Transportation Program.

Vehicles in FCTP are designed to be loaner/demo vehicles. Dealers are typically required to hold on to the vehicle until the end of the model year or put at least 2000 miles on the vehicle before they are sold… but for the Bronco there was a bunch of special exceptions to those rules (I think they had to hold onto them for at least 7 months, and there was no mileage requirement). Unlike most new vehicles where the warranty starts when the vehicle is titled, with FCTP vehicles the warranty starts the day the vehicle leaves the FCTP program.

I personally bought an FCTP Ford Escape last year. It left the program in April 2021 and I bought it in August 2021, so when I took possession it had ~38 months left on the warranty period.

Thank you! My dealer had to hold on to it for 6 months, and then they could sell it. Is there a way for me to verify/prove that I have the extra time, or will the dealer already have it in their system when I have my first repair?

It’s in Ford’s system. Any Ford dealer should have access to that warranty information when they pull up the VIN.
