I don't think that's it at all. I believe since they carried over the 2.3 l which not many want.. They only had 1,500 orders in the queue. That wasn't even enough for the first run production. They even offered a $1,000 bonus to early orders. So the switched the RR to retail and added them to the first run queue.. I think most all will get scheduled and built by Fall. Everyone is waiting on the 2.7 l v6
I'm in the minority as I'm just fine with the 2.3l. I forgot about the 2.7l, that makes more sense and I hope is the reason.

Less ranger orders = more time spent fulfilling overdue bronco orders. I wonder if Ford sees it as more of a win/win situation with the amount of ranger orders.

That's a good point. I'm sure it all comes down to business. But I have to assume that Ford wants to get the Ranger out - first lot out the door. No one can even review the final product until some of them are in peoples hands and seen on the streets. I think that provides motivation for the first run. They could build 10% to 80% Bronco's if they wanted and still do that. I assume once a few get out the door they will sell like crazy. No one knows the Ranger is back!

Review/Press units are not considered "retail".. they're built for Ford, and Ford sends them out to the review sites (or, does like they did for the Ranger Reveal, and has all the reviewers out to a site to see them).

For face value this seems like a logical possibility however I'll throw a wrench in those gears.

I think long-term this is a mistake because the less people getting into the rangers now are the more people getting into new trucks available right now. Well some people can swap new vehicle to new vehicle like it's a normal activity most people who purchase cars are in it for the Long haul or at least a medium time frame.

Buying a car is generally an exhausting thing to go through and once somebody has their butt in say a new Colorado because they didn't want to wait for a ranger they are not likely to suddenly turn around and trade in a product that diminishes in value from the first minute they drive it into something brand new.

This is why the lack of advertisements from Ford about the new Ranger is.. weird. It's not the Maverick, it won't be an insta-hit by filling a niche that was totally un-served at introduction.. But, if you're not a Truck or Ford "enthusiast".. you don't know the '24 Ranger is a new generation.

yep.. and I actually wonder what Ford was thinking - the Maverick serves the small truck segment well. The F150 is still a hot seller .. why would Ford WANT to sell the Ranger? Unless they intend on jacking the price up so high it take place of most of the F150s? So if it were an F150 replacement with 20% less materials and same 70K cost they could probably make a larger profit. I still wonder... and where are all the buyers? I sure won't pay 70K on ANY vehicle - maybe Never. I would think a ton of F150 people would love a Ranger in the 40K ish range.

If I didn't have the Maverick.. I'd get a Ranger before a F-150.. full size is just.. inconvenient in town,, I was looking at Rangers when the Mav was announced.. everyone thought that was going to be the new Ranger reveal at first..

The up side to this is pretty much any enthusiast who was after a ranger Raptor could get one. I have yet to see anybody on here at least say oh boy I wanted a Raptor but no where I could go could sell me one.

I think it's sort of odd some people here are saying they are in line with their local dealer and I'm wondering why they just didn't expand their radius by as much as 50 miles and check with another dealership which would probably have an allocation.

I would even be a betting man out of 3,000 allocations not all of them are even spoken for.

I said it before and I'm not sure if it was on here or 5G but getting Raptor was a relatively easy thing to find because everybody's preoccupied with broncos or f-150s that subscribes to the Ford stable.

I apologize if it's somewhere in this thread, but for those that have ordered a 6G, what's the expected delivery date? I interested in the 6g, but will probably wait until I can check it out in person somehow. I haven't seen anything specific about when that will be.

No one knows yet, the scheduling happening tomorrow is for Raptors only. Ford indicates sometime in August I think may be info for non-Raptor trims.

Do you know if tomorrow is the only day for scheduling Raptors? In other words, if we don't hear anything by Friday are we SOL or are they scheduling over the next few weeks?

100% agree there are definitely dealers still out there that haven't had their allocation spoken for yet. The thing to consider is that some dealers are promising MSRP (and signing paperwork for it), so folks waiting with them is sensible I suppose.

I will say though, this forum throws around the whole "every dealer is getting 1" thing. I don't think that is true. Perfect example is one of the first dealerships I put an order in with never even to this day has received any comms about getting a RR allocation. They submitted an order for me as stock at priority 20, yet the GM was brutally honest with me "We really want your business, i just want you to know we've heard nothing about the RR. We'll take your order and only submit one, but I'm not sure we'll ever get the allocation, at least not soon". I let them submit it just to see if it would eventually stick, but I called them today just to check in and they told me they've still heard nothing, and they have nothing in preview (meaning they can't schedule anything this week). No bulletins, no emails, nothing about the RR. Small town dealer, good people, there's no son or manager taking the allocation.

Meanwhile, at the other dealer I eventually landed with, they have confirmation of the allocation, that it's first production, etc. While I agree interest is low, I also think there might not be that many dealers that have gotten all of these bulletins and dealer comms and thinks like that. That's why so many people had posted here that their dealer said they couldn't submit an order

Ford would be a fool not to allocate 1 to each dealership in the network. Showing favoritism between authorized Ford dealers when it is not sales based allocation, but new release based allocation would be bad business.

Did you know there are just under 3,000 authorized ford dealers in the United States? Between what we know on here and that number alone it doesn't take a detective to put two and two together.

That leaves a couple hundred Raptor units outside of dealer allocations. This would probably cover everything from press release units to be paraded around all the way to little jimmy whos the son of the engineering head wants a new RR and what jimmy wants, jimmy gets.
