So I'm no car production expert, but with the 2021 finally starting production today, I'm worried the Maverick will delay into 2022. I know they share the same chassis so hopefully the factory is kinda already ready to build and deliver the Maverick this fall right? Is that kind of how it works? I'm really hoping the fall delivery date follows through cause I need a new car very badly.

The Bronco Sport is what shares the chasse with the Maverick and Escape... all tree of these vehicles are built in Mexico.
The other Bronco (the big Bronco) is starting production in Michigan. It is a body-on-frame and a totally different assembly line.
I don't think it will impact the Maverick :)

Yeah, the big boy bronco went through covid lockdowns and chip shortages and hardtop material supply issues I think.

I think part of the reason the Maverick uses Sync 3 instead of 4 is to avoid chip shortage issues as the actual cost between 3 and 4 to Ford must be minimal. So I think Ford is pretty confident in the parts availability for production to ramp up this summer and deliveries to start early to mid Fall
