This afternoon I ordered a T150 medium roof with 8 seats, the 3.5 EcoBoost engine and just about everything else except My Touch and Sync.

Ordering was easy. I used the Order Sheets posted here along with the Transit brochure and the Build and Price on Ford's web site. A special thank you to those of you who have been posting Ford info on the forum. It really helped!

X Plan cut $2982 off list price. A/Z plans would have cut $4753 off list.

If I know someone w/ A/Z and they're not using it for anything this year can they still get it for me in my name ? I remember guys doing that back in the day.

Ok so friends can get X. I'd have to get divorced and then become a same sex spouse to get the A/Z.
Guess I'll stick with the old fashioned hard ball negotiating instead.

After driving a 3.5 yesterday in a couple 350's, you'll have a hot rod there Dale in a 150

This afternoon I ordered a T150 (130" WB)medium roof with 8 seats, the 3.5 EcoBoost engine and just about everything else except My Touch and Sync.[/QUOT


Today I looked at ford_buildout.pdf

On page 2, the lines between "Transit Connect and Lincoln" refer to Transit Van/Wagon build codes. There are five groups of build codes with Job 1 dates relative to one another.

The first four groups are 148" WB Vans, Cutaways, Chassis Cabs and Wagons. All 130" WB vehicles are in the last group...

I must be missing something because it looks to me like they will not be building ANY wagons until June of NEXT YEAR!:eek: I must have read it wrong.:s

Do you know what the "code" is for a regular wheel base (130") low roof 8 passenger wagon?

I posted this conversation with Ford engineers on another thread:

The dialogue went something like this -

"When are the first Wagons expected to be built?"

"Early in August they will change to a different set of builds and Wagons should probably be part of that."

"I certainly hope that the Wagon I ordered is part of that group."

" It shouldn't be very long."

The engineer did not ask if anything I ordered is late availability. I know I avoided ordering any late availability items like MyTouch, so the ambiguity of his response does not help my confidence much.

Yes that was a vague answer.
I have a self imposed time limit - I have to take delivery before June 1, 2015. I would prefer to get it after the 2014 - 2015 road salt season. Mid to late April would be perfect. But if has to be earlier then so be it.
Now I just have to figure out when to order to beat out that 6/1/15 date.

My wagon that I ordered is in that last group also. Reg wheel base medium roof wagon. I added a handful of options but I don't think any of them were late availability options. I am pretty sure those dates are just listed weird on that build schedule.
I still don't have a VIN number though and I ordered April 15th. I'm hoping to at least get a vin soon so I can have an idea of the progress they are making (if any) on it!
