2022 Explorer Limited 4WD
Found a local dealer that is offering invoice pricing with no gottchas like another. None of that paint protection and nitrogen fill BS for $2500. Another said I had to get the "Protection Package" and HAD to use Ford Motor Credit for financing.

Timeline - Latest update in red.

  1. Order date 07 Feb 2022
  2. VIN sent via email 03 March 2022
  3. Original scheduled build date 18 April 2022
  4. Updated build date week of 21 March 2022
  5. Checked 15 March 2022 and it is in production
  6. Window Sticker available from forddirect.com - it shows -$50 for auto start/stop removal, -$100 2nd Row Heated Seat Control removal, and -$50 Rear Aux Controls
  7. Looks like a blend date of 220322 so the updated build date sent to me is probably correct. I assume I will have to go back at some point for the rear controls, but I'd rather have the car now than wait for something as simple as that. 16 March 2022
  8. In Production 22 Mar 2022
  9. Build Complete 22 Mar 2022 - received email of completion and testing beginning. Estimated delivery 7-14 April to Atlanta area.
  10. I think a slight change happened where the tracking site shows "Your vehicle has been built and we are arranging shipment to your dealer. This step could take a few days to a week." I also received a call from my dealer saying they expect the car by the 2nd week of April. - 29 March 2022
  11. Shipped to dealer (noticed on website) 07 April 2022 - Site updated to show my Explorer is in transit.
  12. Went through "your vehicle is recalled" to "your vehicle isn't recalled."
  13. Purchase complete 5/13/22

Congrats. My blend date is 220326. Hoping to get that built email soon. My sticker has the same missing components but with the summer coming, heated seats in the rear aren't a big deal. Hopefully the parts come in before the winter hits.
 






I completed the purchase on 5/13. Everything is good except the missing rear AC controls.
 






my dealer was msrp plus what ever incentives. i paid about 1500 over invoice after the incentives.
