    How did you order today and get a delivery date on the same day? That is pretty much impossible, methinks your dealer pulled a date out of their nether regions and gave it to you. It takes at least a week to get a build date (orders pulled on thursdays) and almost nobody but those that are being built this week have a delivery date. Better chance yours will be built at the end of January at this point. Most orders which we submitted over a month ago are just getting end of November build dates now, add another 4-6 weeks for delivery and also account for the 3 week plant shutdown over Xmas. Sorry

    Harris,

    Please elaborate as this comment is making me think I won't get anything until the summer... I was told to expect a delivery date end of Jan or Feb to be safe. I hope it is not a guess to keep a smile on my face. Thank you!

    Ford only pulls allocated orders on Thursdays so that is the first hint your dealer is full of it (if you ordered today and they gave you an eta which is impossible). The ONLY people who have eta's at the dealer are those being built this week or next (strike two). Finally, ask your dealer for the order number and their dealer number. With this you can message ford service on Facebook and they will provide the current status of your order. At this point you likely won't even exist in their system for another week or so and then you'll be "in order processing" for a bit. Next you'll get a vin assigned and finally a build date after that. This process itself can take weeks or for some people months. About a week before it is built you'll be able to download your window sticker and MAY get an eta when it will be delivered to the dealer.

    Now, with all that said there is no rhyme nor reason to how Ford is pulling orders and from which dealers. Knowing how many allocations they have, ensuring they actually have an allocation for you and which number you are on the list is your only way to have any clue on how fast the above may move. The dealer may also be able to tell you how many have already been pulled and scheduled from their allocations.

    My dealer has 22 allocations, I ordered almost 6 weeks ago and don't yet have a vin. I'm lucky number 13 of their 22...I will consider myself lucky if I see it by January

    Spent a good bit of time researching the process and either there is a misunderstanding with you and the dealer, they're personally related to Henry Ford or they are trying to keep a smile on your face ;)

    It's a little different for us ordering through MAS overseas. When we submit an order MAS has to guarantee a delivery date. This was part of their lottery and they were only allowed something like 2 allocations every month. I got my info in pretty quick and they accepted my order with a 1/26/17 delivery date. Now I'm sure that could go left or right but for the most part they have been pretty accurate in the past (barring and unforseeables).

    All of this was part of the reason it took them so long to even lets us get a chance on the truck. I'll update if that changes but for now they were willing to put it on paper.

    I was told something in that nature. I was even promised a free rental if my truck miss the delivery date. I am renting a mini-pooper/cooper and drive it like hell in Colorado until I get my beast! I hope you're right Sky Sol!

    I double checked my paperwork, their page, as well as my agent. They guarantee the delivery date on your offer sheet, the signed version. Got on the order tracker they have and it has my date as 1/26/17.

    I realize it doesn't have a build date or vin but the picture is from their tracker showing that it's to be delivered by that date....

    Get to take a nice cross country trip in the beast right after I pick it up!

    Go to track my order. You need your customer number, provided by your MAS agent. Name and email used with your agent. Should see this. It will take to a screen that has tabs for all the info on your truck to include financials.

    I had to put three down in order to secure the offer, but nothing else.
