Pre-Order Your New Custom Ford

Millions of Americans drive Ford trucks and SUVs because they're durable, powerful, and versatile. But more than that, Ford is one of the most popular brands on planet Earth because sitting behind the wheel makes you feel more confident and lets you share that confidence with the world. So when it comes time to upgrade to that new Bronco Sport, Explorer, or F-150 you've got your eye on, why settle for anything less than everything you want? 

Ford makes it easy to pre-order your new vehicle and customize it down to the detail. With Ford custom ordering, you don't have to just settle for the best of what's around. You can get that exact color combination, the powertrain you want for hauling or adventuring, and the accessories and features you crave. The process is easy, and the results are satisfying. 

Your Ford, Your Way in Havelock, NC

It's safe to say that Ford is in demand with red-hot vehicles like the Maverick, Bronco, and F-150 Lightning flying out of showrooms across the country. When you pre-order your new custom Ford vehicle, you secure your spot in line so that you can get on the road in your new ride even faster. 

The pre-order process is simple: You tell us what new Ford vehicle you're looking for and how you want it. A member of the team at Riverside Ford will reach out to you to go over options like in-transit vehicles and custom building from scratch. And once you're satisfied, we'll lock in your order with Ford and let you know where it is as it makes its way to our dealership. 

Best of all, Ford doesn't charge you any extra when you place a custom pre-order than it would for a vehicle that's already on our lot. You may also be eligible for special offers and incentives, and financing or leasing is just as smooth and hassle-free. 

There's a great selection of new Ford vehicles in stock at Riverside Ford. But if you want something that meets your exacting needs, custom ordering may be the way to go. Follow the steps below or just reach out to one of our friendly team members with your questions.
