Same sad, frustrating story here. 10/11 >> 10/21 >> 11/5

I thought Ford wasn't scheduling builds until they actually had parts ready for assembly but I guess they got cocky and got ahead of themselves and now we're the ones who suffer for it.

It wouldn't be so bad if I hadn't spent the past month continually rearranging my travel schedule based on when my van was supposed to be finishing production. I've missed out on multiple opportunities that I couldn't commit to because they were happening when I would need to be picking up the van.

I'm too far in to pull the plug now, but if you someone had told me when I ordered in March that it would be December (hopefully?) before I took delivery I'd have spent the last 9 months looking for a good-enough used van to buy so I could get on with my life.

Consequently, if anyone reading this is planning on ordering a 22 and can't imagine it taking 9 months or more to take delivery then you need to readjust your expectations.

I emailed my dealer, hoping to get a build week update and haven’t heard back. Was getting nervous that the tracker website had nothing showing for build date or window sticker. It’s somewhat comforting to know that things have been pushed back a few weeks. At this point I just don’t want to start over with a 2022 order after waiting since March. Hopefully they don’t cancel anymore orders.

How are you all finding out about build dates getting pushed back. Contacting the dealer or getting email updates? I haven't received anything since getting the email letting me know my estimated build date was the week of October 11th and am wondering if I would have received another email if my build date got pushed back. I checked with the dealer yesterday morning, but haven't been able to get a response. Current status on the tracker hasn't moved past the "Order Confirmed 2/5/21" stage, so I'm not too optimistic that it will get built this week.

I did get a frustrating tease yesterday though. When I clicked the tracker link it said "In Production" and then I realized I was on the page for someone else's F150. Somehow the order number and vin got prepopulated with the details for someone else's order.

That's exciting! Congrats! Mine was also built in 9/29. My estimate for delivery is 10/21 to 10/27, up here in New England. I have been checking the tracker so much I have memorized the VIN. My wife makes fun of me for it.

I ordered from Ed, CrewVanMan and they are very proactive with the updates, good and bad news. Ed posts here and there is usually an email in my inbox the next morning about change of schedule. The info has to come from your dealer. They have access to the visibility reports that Ed is accessing.

Ordered August 3, build date Nov 8 on a 2021 MR, long, AWD, Eco, Crew. I went into the dealership to get some questions answered and hassle them if they had no answers but was surprised by a Vin and build date. Wearing war paint I left happy!
I called the dealer today for an update and found that my MR, 148 Long, AWD, Eco, Crew is rescheduled from 11/08/21 to 11/15/21. Not a bad delay for the first one. Over/under delay is probably 4 in Vegas.

Checked the tracker and was surprised with a DELIVERED status this morning! Had an est delivery of 11/5 Ford breaking tradition and being ahead of schedule🤯 Built on 9/29. Ordered 5/10. HR EXT T350 Awd with adv pkg delivered to Florida
wow! thats the shortest time period from ordering I have seen so far on this forum for an HR with Adv Pkg. It is even faster than CrewVanMan.... I guess luck also matters?

If any of you lucky 2021ers have had a change of circumstance and can't take receipt of your rig, couldn't wait and bought something else, or have had a change of heart, I am happy to jump in and take your spot. I am one of the unlucky ones with a March order for a 250 Med Roof Long (R2C) AWD Eco with Adventure Package that Ford accepted but recently cancelled/did not pick-up. I'd even be willing to compensate you for your time investment.

Did you ever get a vin?

I can’t remember how this page looked last time I checked.. I want to say the solid white circle beside in production was not there in the past. Does anyone know or remember if that is always there once you got your vin, or is mine actually heading towards production. I was originally told build week of November 1

I'm pretty sure the heading above described that the vehicle "was now in production" you would be able to see your window sticker now if it was starting production

It looks like that the page didn't load correctly.
