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.

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.

Here is a good link to an old post that describes the order/allocation system very well.

Once under production, how fast are they actually built?

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

Ha I ordered a sterling grey 2011 with 202a, tow package, and a power lift gate on Jan 15th.

Hopefully we get them the same time..

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.
