Do you have a crystal ball, that says different ??? Just relaying what he was told .

6/24 is launch of 2022. They have to have x amount of days of no quality issues to reach ok to sell. IRC, it's one week of no issues. There are tens of thousands of 2021 trucks sitting missing something. 2021 Customers are being told they are being moved to 2022 model year. ALL of those trucks will get cleared out before 2022 will get delivered. Ford and GM have both issued press releases expecting revenue being down roughly a billion dollars.

Figure 2 week minimum transport time, and we're suddenly deep into fall delivery.

Not a crystal ball, but a long term understanding of how automotive works.


He hasn't heard otherwise, but he's not in a great rush, so I suppose if its in the fall it won't be that bad.

Your dealer is incorrect. Those vehicles that are currently on order and have had VIN's issued will be 21' model year vehicles based on the VIN number. I know this as I'm sitting in this situation as I type this. Ordered 12/02/20, just got the VIN a little more than a month ago, truck not even scheduled to be built yet. If I see it before August, I'll be surprised. Sadly, it'll be a year old and the 22's will be out by the time I get it; and with the shortage of vehicles, I highly doubt I'll see one dime of discount.


I ordered mine in February and got it in April. You ordered your truck on 12/02/20 and yours is not built yet? Maybe you shouldn't put much stock in what your dealer says.

Your truck may be built and stored until the chip comes in.

It's waiting for a chip alright, and everything else....... It has NOT been built. I can see that via my order number and VIN through the Ford Tracking site. I have also verified with a third party ford dealer and my dealer has actually sent me the screen shots of there order block and tracking info. The Order was placed with Ford on 12/02 and it has not moved to production as of today (05/11/21). The Dealer website does differ from the consumer site and atleast provides a estimated production however that hasn't meant much as I've seen that changed by more than a month 2 separate times already. As of last month, it had an estimated production for the week May 17th. I haven't checked with my dealer in a few weeks but fully expect that isn't happening.

I just looked up the email from the General Manager at the Ford dealer from when I ordered my truck. I was wrong when I told you that I ordered in mid-February. I ordered my truck on Friday, January 29, 2021 at 11 AM.I picked it up on Tuesday, March 20. As I said, it was actually at the Ford dealer sometime the week before, but I was out of town.

I guess my question is why my truck took a little less than two months and you ordered in early December and you still haven't received your truck?

I am guessing that Ford has a vehicle allocation process that allocates orders to dealers. Even if the dealer has a sold order, it will not be accepted into the system.

That's what I was told about my 2022 order. Dealer has several allocations for their own spec, so he put my order in as one of theirs spec'd the way I want it. It got me a place in line because they could put the order in to save my spot sooner but allowed me to finetune options for a while before the order was actually placed. Now thinking I won't see the truck until late fall, maybe even next year the way things are going.

This whole microchip doesn't seem to be getting any better, according to this article.

https://www.cnbc.com/2021/05/07/chip-sho........-have-major-real-world-consequences.html

"If you listen to Ford, BMW, Volkswagen, they all highlighted that there’s bottlenecks in capacity and they can’t get the chips they need to manufacture the new cars,” he said, adding that he thinks it will go on for 18 months.

Yup, just replaced the plywood on a small utility trailer took 3 sheets @ $77 ea. Nearly as much as the trailer is worth [emoticon]
