Understanding what a Ford “Order Bank” is
Ford’s order bank process makes it easy to get the exact model, trim, color, features, and packages desired by custom ordering your dream Ford. When a car has an order bank closed, Ford is no longer taking orders for that specific vehicle. However, if an order bank is open like the new 2023 Ford Edge, 2023 Ford F-150, 2023 Ford Explorer, 2023 Bronco Sport, 2023 Ford Transit, and 2023 Ford Ranger, your local Ford dealer can take your customer order and submit it to Ford.
Why Do I have to Custom Order my New Ford?
Ford switched to a custom ordering model to navigate the dire inventory shortages causing massive global delays. When you custom order a new Ford, you configure a vehicle based on the model and options that work for your lifestyle. Compared to buying from the limited inventory available at the dealership. At your local dealership, a team member will walk you through available options and build sheets to submit an order. Next, you will need to sign your buyer’s order, where you will need a copy of your driver’s license and an email address, phone number, and signature to verify your order. Once Ford has accepted your order, your local dealer will update you on your build status and provide resources for tracking your vehicle. You sign the purchase agreement when your car arrives or is delivered. Visit your local Ford dealer today to start your new 2023 custom build to order! Explore the new 2023 Ford Lineup below:
Explore the 2023 Ford Bronco Sport
Ford hasn’t said whether it will make any changes to the upcoming 2023 Bronco Sport model. The car manufacturer plans to offer the same standard 1.5-liter turbocharged three-cylinder engine that produces 181 hp and 190 lb.-ft. of torque. An optional 245-hp 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine is available for customers who want more power while off roading. The Bronco Sport comes standard with all-wheel drive and an eight-speed automatic transmission.
Explore the New 2023 Ford Ranger
The new 2023 Ford Ranger will be the most capable truck in Ford’s lineup. The 3.0L V8 turbodiesel engine will help raise towing, payload capacity, and off-road capability, while a redesigned frame will add 50mm to the wheelbase and 50mm to the track for more cargo space.
Explore the New 2023 Ford Explorer
The Ford Explorer is a midsize SUV with seating for seven passengers. The Explorer offers three engine options and is available with a hybrid option too. Since the vehicle’s redesign in 2020, it has not changed much in terms of exterior styling or interior design, but it has gained new technology features and safety upgrades. The 2023 Explorer will continue to offer a standard turbocharged 2.3-liter four-cylinder engine producing 300 hp, a twin-turbocharged 3.0-liter V-6 offering 400 hp, and the hybrid 3.3-liter V6 engine producing 318 hp.
Explore the New 2023 Ford Edge
The Ford Edge 2023 model will be similar to the previous year’s model, featuring a standard 12-inch touchscreen display, Apple CarPlay, Google Assistant, Wi-Fi connectivity, and four USB outlets. In the interior, the 2023 Edge will offer navigation, wireless charging pads, and a 12-speakers sound system. All-wheel drive is standard for the Edge. Under the hood, Ford’s upcoming SUV will come standard with a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine producing 250 horsepower and an optional twin-turbocharged 2.7-liter V6 engine producing 335 horsepower.

Explore the New 2023 Ford F-150
Ford has unveiled a new 2023 F-150 called the Rattler based on the XL trim and designed for thrill-seekers who like to go off-road. The truck has hill-descent control, all-terrain tires, off-road shock absorbers, a locking rear differential, 18-inch painted aluminum wheels, and rattle-snake-inspired graphics and logos throughout its bodywork. The F-150 can also be purchased in hybrid form for the first time; combining a 3.5-liter twin-turbo V6 engine with an electric motor produces 430 horsepower and 570 lb-ft of torque.
