That kinda pisses me off! My dealer gave me a 6-8 weeks for delivery from the build date of 06/03 and your stats suggest I won't see my car until middle to end of August as I still don't have a VIN! So much for buying a car for a family road trip. Boo!

Here is my experience so far.

Ordered: 4/18
2014 production starts 6/3
VIN provided : 6/13
Window Sticker showed up : 6/27
Blend Data : 7/10 (assumed build finish date)
ETA to dealer: 8/4

It will be close to 16 weeks it would appear before I get mine delivered from the order date.

So was that build date wrong? Is it possible it's built one day and at the dealer the next for delivery?

For my part my '14 sport was ordered on 7/5 and I got the DORA (after the weekend) on 7/8. In standby mode for the Ex now but have already started ordering aftermarket mods based on all the great ideas on the forum.

It completed production on 7/16 and rode the truck over yesterday to the dealer. So dealership location to the plant obviously makes a difference.

Hi gang!

Shoot me a PM when you're ready for news on your order's status; I'm always happy to take a peek! If we haven't been in contact before, be sure to include your order number/dealership name in your PM. If you have your VIN, I can use that, too!

Crystal

WOW! "makes a difference" is an understatement!! Congrats on getting yours and without waiting for a train or truck! (for me add a boat).

My friend just got his yesterday as well, first 2014 Sport in the state...

Here are my final numbers. After 15 weeks, I picked mine up last Friday.

I ordered a 2014 Sport about 7 weeks before production started, so it sits around 8 weeks after production started before I received mine. So we knew we were in for along wait since we were during the model year cut over time frame. Shipping out West appears to take longer comparing to others who were built around the same time as mine, but not too bad.

Ordered: 04/18
First Build Date for 2014 Explorers: 06/03
Vin Issued: 06/13
Window Sticker: 06/27
Build Date: 07/10
Projected Delivery Date: 08/06
Actual Delivery Date 08/02 w/ 20 miles on it.

Initial impressions are good, fit and finish appear very good. MFT is really neat. The Ruby Red paint is really nice color. The only thing that I noticed is that on all four rims there is a black ring near the edge of the rim near the tire. Can't tell if it was from the tire mounting process or some covers on the rims from shipping. I waxed the rims but really couldn't get the black ring off, some of it goes through the "Sport" word that is on one section. I'll keep trying to get that off, but otherwise it looks fine, you have to look close to notice it. The car drives quiet, smooth and tons of power, it meets our expectations so far.

Thanks to Crystal, Cory and Ashley who answered the mail and tracked it for me!
