19000 backorders.....whoa!!!

This must be some sort of precedent! Has anybody known of such a demand for a vehicle here in Australia before? Well done Ford.......but please don't make me wait too long!!!

I’m sure demand has been higher for other cars in Australia, you just don’t hear about it because there was no part delays causing slow build therefore huge back orders. The news title is a bit misleading

I’m sure the Corolla would have 50,000 back ordered if they too had delays!

I wonder how many of these ordered are electric models?

Hmmm.....I am not sure another car has been as anticipated as this one....50'000 Corollas lol! ;) The arrival date is July, so the back log is yet to actually occur, in terms of deliveries and people are still ordering despite the expected delays....

A 12 month wait for Toyota RAV4 Hybrids equals about 15,000 orders. Throw in another few thousand for the 6-9 month delay on other RAV4 models and you'll probably exceed 19,000 orders.

Ever since I was a young fella, I heard the slogan "Truck with Ford". It appears to be correct these days. ;D

Did you see that Ford's finished 1st & 2nd in Darwin today? Any comment about parity?

Yes, but I would not be so mean as to post it in a non spoiler thread.

This thread is just one of 3 or 4 currently running on Ford trucks. I don't see that a low volume sporty car will be purchased instead of a Ranger.

I meant to reply to REM sorry.

Lucky the action was live on 7 today.

If it was done by the Australian tech team, good on them. Happy to see this country can still offer something to the world.

I think the amount of cars on back order would shock most people..

Looking at the numbers from our dealership alone, many Toyota's would surpass the 19,000 back order number from Ford.. I would say the Hilux, Rav and possibly the LC300.
