      I ordered on 1/17 (LTD). Got my VIN from my dealer on 1/27, I called them for an update was not proactive.

      E-mailed Cory with VIN and Monday 1/31 he replied that it was "in production", with an estimated delivery date to dealer of 02/21. Window Sticker was available on Wed 02/02 showing build/blend date of 02/09.

      Its going from Chicago to Tampa.

      Hope that helps.

      Order in production

      The dealer said mine was also in production so the ones ordered around the 17th of Jan should be delivered by end of month (we Hope)

      I ordered mine (Limited w 301A) on Jan 17th and I have a production date of the week of 2/14. Allowing about 2 weeks for shipping so I should have mine by March 1.

      Best of luck!

      I ordered mine for work through Donlen (fleet leasing). I am seeing some people say that their dealer is promising 6-8 weeks. Donlen told me 14 weeks. Does Donlen have a different priority than retailers?

      My Ex was ordered 12-30 and still no build date or VIN. My dealer explained they are allotted a certain number of build slots and all special orders must come from that allotment. Special orders with a confirmed buyer's name get priority. The speed at which an order is process appears to be due to the number of build slot your dealer has been assigned. I am the # 3 sold order from my dealer and I was told the build date will be in March and the assignment of this date will be around the 1st of March. All February build dates have reportedly been assigned.

      Hope this is accurate, the person I talked to was the ordering manager for 4 Ford dealerships in the OKC area.

      Once under production, how fast are they actually built?

      Just curious if anyone knew, seems like a lot of knowledgeable folks on here.

      In every example of status updates I've seen, it's impossible to tell exactly which day the vehicle is started and exactly when it is completed. Almost invariably (assuming no production holds), the vehicle goes from "Scheduled" to "Production" status and seven days later its status changes to "Produced".

      I have learned that the last five digits of the VIN do not necessarily indicate order of build. On another site there were folks with VIN's similar to yours that were built two weeks ago. So, I have stopped trying to gauge my build/ship date on other's VINs. I expect mine has been built but I can't get confirmation nor when/if it is shipped.

      Den is correct on this. I used to assume last digits on VIN implied build number/order but this doesn't seem to be the case OR it could just mean they are not shipping them out in order. This would most likely be because of a QA/recall/parts issue and it's my understanding that vehicles on-the-line get priority for new parts before the ones already built, sitting in the yard. I know, it doesn't make sense but little of the entire process does in my opinion. For example, pre-orders not being handle First-In First-Out regardless of dealer allocation.

      PAS, Got through and after several "select 1-2-3 options" was able to get through to a very helpful service rep. and find that my vehicle is indeed built and as of yesterday on Ramp 6. Now just hope for good weather between the Windy City and the Cape.

      Again thanks for the info !

      In the VIN, digits 12 - 17 inclusive represent the Production Sequence Number.

      I am only going by the fact that folks with higher VINs than mine were built almost two weeks earlier than mine. Needless to say I am only going by what people have said on this and other sites. The PSN may be a "window" but it doesn't appear to me that it is "categorically sequencial"

      I hear ya! The production process has been a source of amusement and frustration to quite a few. I guess the bottom line is, it will get here when it gets here.:rolleyes: Mine is schedule to be built next Monday with ETA of the 28th, but with some of the issues I've read, I'm not going to be sitting there waiting for the transport to roll in.;)
