You should have received VIN info by now. I would call the dealership and ask for an update.

Once you get the VIN, go here: http://www.etis.ford.com/ You can also download your actual window sticker from here as well, once you have a build date.

Hey, folks!

Don't forget that I can track and update you on the progress of your Explorers. Once you pull the trigger on ordering, send me a PM with your order number and dealership name/location. As an FYI, order numbers are four characters long and can be letters, numbers, or a combination of both. If you don't see something matching that description on your paperwork, just give your sales rep a call and they'll provide it to you.

Crystal

2016 Explorer (on order)
I placed my order in late February and haven't gotten a VIN or build date yet either. My dealer stated that they are currently filling initial dealer stock.

Scheduling of the 2016 production began on March 12th and actual production began on May 4th. I would expect early orders to begin having VIN's assigned pretty soon. On some past models it could take 8 -10 weeks to get the vehicle delivered. At other times it was 6 -8 weeks. I ordered my 2011 Limited on Dec. 23rd, 2010 and it was at the dealership on March 4th. Keep in mind that the factory closed for almost 3 weeks for Christmas/New Years so my order likely didn't get processed until sometime in January.
