Ford Vehicle Availability for 2022

Ford Vehicle Availability for 2022

Semiconductors, otherwise known as chips, are causing vehicle shortages across Canada and the globe. One 2022 Ford vehicle could include as many as 3,000 chips in its variety of parts. They are not just used in the infotainment system but also in items such as the backup camera, emergency brake system, and more.

 

Many factors led to the current car chip shortage being experienced across Canada, but there are some steps you can take to find the specific vehicle that you want..

 

What are Chips?

What are Chips

 

Semiconductors are the real name of the computer chips used to build vehicle parts. They are found in everything from televisions to smartphones, cameras to LED lightbulbs. In vehicles, semiconductors are used everywhere--one vehicle part could use dozens of chips, and one vehicle could have thousands of chips. The amount necessary to build a car is just one reason why chips are in such short supply.

 

Reasons Behind the Car Chip Shortage in Canada

The COVID-19 pandemic is a big factor behind the vehicle chip shortage, this includes both Ford chip shortages as well as other manufacturers. Electronics were in higher demand with people staying at home and purchasing more laptops, smartphones, video game consoles, and more. To meet demand, manufacturers built more of these items, using more chips than originally planned.

 

As the COVID-19 pandemic hit and unemployment began to rise, vehicle manufacturers decreased their chip orders because they anticipated a reduction in demand. However, that was not the case--demand remained steady and even increased during the course of the pandemic. But now manufacturers had less chips on their hands, meaning that thousands of vehicles could not be completed without the required chips.

 

Bad luck was another reason behind the chip shortage. One of the car industry's biggest computer chip suppliers had a fire at one of its facilities, which had a massive impact on the number of chips that it could create. While chips were already in short supply yet high demand, the ability of suppliers to produce them was significantly reduced.

While experts once thought that the chip shortage would work itself out by the fall of 2021, dealership lots continue to remain empty because of supply issues. New 2022 Ford availability is just one thing affected, and the situation is most likely going to remain complicated through most of the next year as supply chain issues continue to dominate the headlines.

 

New cars are being scooped up even before they make it to a dealership, which can make for a long and frustrating car buying experience if you cannot even find a car to buy. However, River City Ford can help you find new 2022 Ford availability and get the car that you want. Simply visit the dealership's website, or go in person, to pre-order the vehicle that you want.
