If you’ve been browsing new Ford trucks and other vehicles for sale for a while, but just aren’t finding exactly what you want, we have great news.

This August, Ford Motor Company is opening order banks for two iconic SUVs, with production beginning in early-to-mid November. Get your own 2023 Ford Bronco or 2023 Ford Explorer with all the features you want, and pick it up at our Itasca Ford Dealership.

The process is easier than you think, and our personal shoppers can help you through it, including finalizing your purchase once your new SUV is completed.

Ordering the 2023 Ford Bronco at Our Ford Dealership Near You

Mark your calendars for August 11, when the Ford Bronco order banks open. Production is set to begin on November 14, although these dates are subject to change.

We’re hopeful that the Ford Bronco Raptor and the Ford Bronco Everglades will be available for off-road lovers looking for excitement among the 2023 offerings.

Car experts speculate whether any changes will be made to this throwback SUV, but they seem pretty certain that its standard engine – a 2.3-liter I4 EcoBoost with 270 horsepower and 310 pound-feet of torque – will remain the same. It’s also likely that the 2.7-liter V6 EcoBoost with 310 horsepower and 400 pound-feet of torque will be offered, too, as it was for the previous model year.

Order banks for the latest Ford Explorer SUV model also open on August 11, 2022, with production beginning November 7. Of course, these dates aren’t rigid, so it’s possible they’ll change as needed.

Ford enthusiasts posit that such late production could mean that the 2023 Ford Explorer is receiving a refresh, similar to the newest Explorer model the Blue Oval released in China, which features an upgraded exterior with a new grille and headlight design and new rear bumper, plus a more modern aesthetic on the interior with a sleek, landscape-oriented infotainment touchscreen fully integrated into the dashboard.

Fans also suspect that a plug-in hybrid (PHEV) variant may be offered, especially with the launch of the fully-electric Lightning F-150 and the Escape PHEV. What we’re fairly certain of, however, is that the 2023 Explorer will come standard with a turbocharged four-cylinder, with options for two twin-turbo V6 engines, or a 4-cylinder hybrid powertrain.
