That’s how long all this supply-chain-inventory shortage rigamarole has been going on in the automotive business. Two long years.
Most dealerships around Kansas City have been sitting on a record-low number of cars, trucks, vans & SUVs on their lots for the last 24 months.
Within every crisis, though, there is opportunity, and dealers like Gary Crossley Ford are using this particular crisis to improve the vehicle purchasing experience for many buyers dramatically.
The number of consumers pre ordering their new Fords continues to grow every month and has been for a while. It starts to add up.
Ford retail orders have more than doubled over the last year.
It’s almost becoming the “new normal.”
For most of 2022, Ford sold more vehicles through custom retail orders than it did out of dealer stock. Hot new models like the all-new 2023 Ford Super Duty lead the charge. If you wait around until you see one of these bad boys catching a sun tan out on the lot at Gary Crossley Ford, well, you might just be waiting a while.
What’s so great about custom ordering a new vehicle?
Nobody likes to wait; we’re with you on that, but membership has its privileges.
When you join the pre-order club at Gary Crossley Ford, you get to choose EVERYTHING. You’re no longer limited by which vehicles we have sitting on our lot or what the factory is shipping to us. You don’t have to buy “off the rack.”
You get to choose which color you want, which options you want, which trim level you want, and which features you want. It’s going to be your ride; you ought to be the one to decide what it’s packing.
Here’s the best part though: since your new vehicle is coming straight from the factory, no one else ever gets to take it out for a test drive. The first time you sit behind the wheel, you can rest assured that your brand-new rump warmer has never warmed another consumer’s tooshie.
That’s priceless, and the price ain’t half bad either.
