Ford vehicle availability for 2022

Ford vehicle availability for 2022

If you have been looking for a new vehicle and noticed a shortage of inventory, it is because of the global car chip shortage that is affected not only 2022 Ford availability but all automobile manufacturers. Semiconductors, otherwise known as chips, are the main reason behind vehicle shortages across Canada and the globe.

 

Vehicles do not use just one chip or a few chips--a new 2022 Ford vehicle could include as many as 3,000 chips throughout its construction. Not only does the infotainment system use them, but they are found in a variety of parts, including the backup camera, emergency brake system, and more.

 

While there is not much you can do about the current chip shortage in Canada, you can take several steps to secure the specific vehicle that you want.

 

What are Chips?

 

Semiconductors are the actual name of the "chips" that are in short supply. They are found in everything from televisions to smartphones, cameras to LED lightbulbs. In vehicles, they are used in many electrical components--one vehicle part could use dozens of chips, and one vehicle could have thousands of chips.

 

Reasons for Car Chip Shortage in Canada

 

The ongoing COVID-19 pandemic is a major player in the vehicle chip shortage, including in new 2022 Ford vehicles. First, electronic devices were in higher demand when people were stuck at home, leading manufacturers to divert chips to electronic companies instead of automobile manufacturers.

 

Secondly, automobile manufacturers decreased their chip orders when the pandemic hit and unemployment began to rise. It was assumed that there would be a sharp decrease in the demand for new vehicles. However, that was not the case, and manufacturers simply did not have the semiconductors needed to complete vehicles.

 

Thirdly, bad luck and an accident also contributed to the car chip shortage in Canada and across the globe. One of the car industry's biggest computer chip suppliers had a fire at one of its facilities, massively reducing the number of chips it could build. Th ability to produce chips was significantly reduced by this tragedy right when they were needed the most.

 

Pre-Order Your Vehicle Instead

 

While it seemed like the chip shortage would alleviate during 2021, dealership lots continue to remain empty. 2022 Ford vehicle availability in Canada is just one thing affected, and it does not look like the problem will be resolved in the near future as demand remains high and supplies remain low.

 

Drivers are buying new vehicles sight unseen, scooping them up before they even make it to the dealership. This can be frustrating and disheartening for buyers who need a new vehicle but cannot find the car that they want.

 

However, Zender Ford is ready to help you locate new 2022 Ford models and get into a new vehicle. It is as simple as pre-ordering the vehicle that you want, whether through the dealership's website or at their facility. This way, you do not have to compromise on colour, trim level, or packages. You still have to wait for the vehicle to be built and shipped, but at the end, you get exactly the vehicle that you want.
