I have just received my window sticker for my dealer ordered 2013 Ford Explorer Sport that was ordered on December 13,2012. I received a vin number just a week later(thanks to Crystal's weekley updates) and today the window sticker just about a month later. It has a built date of 1-23-2013. That is fast!!
I am not sure if it has anything to do with the order being a Priority #10 but I remember that the dealer told me at the time that it was the best number given to the order.

Here is the window sticker link,

Same as me - I ordered an Explorer Limited on 12/14 and still no VIN. Supposedly there WAS some sort of stop order from Ford but I'm waiting for my call back from corporate for the details. I called Ford Customer Care last Friday and was told I would receive a call back on my escalated case. Spoke with a supervisor today that confirmed a stop order but she will be investigating what the stop is actually for and whether this was just for my vehicle, similar vehicles, or my dealership specifically.

I would say it has something to do with dealer allocations. I ordered my limited on Dec 15 and it was built on Jan 14. Dealer order was a Priority 10. I believe my dealer has the allocations because they are a larger dealer with 2 stores and that is why mine was built so quickly.

Thanks Zorro11,

Have you tried contacting Crystal a Ford Rep here in the forum? If you send her via PM your Dealer Information and order number she will be able to track your order and give you the most up to date information including the vin # for your Explorer is one has been assigned to it.

If you haven't done so please do and she will be able to help you.

Good Luck!

Hey folks!

Waiting stinks, but I'm sure that the moment your new Explorer comes home you'll forget all about it. :) Keep in mind that I'm happy to provide you with weekly updates on your new vehicles, just send a PM my way with either an order number/dealer name or your VIN. I'll keep you updated through the whole process.

Those of you who are lucky to have brand spankin' new Explorers sitting in your garage, be sure to post lots of pictures so we can drool over those sweet rides!

Thanks,

Crystal

Same boat as me - hopefully someone at Ford can figure this out - 5 weeks and still no VIN...
