Thanks! It says it's not available yet but I'll keep checking.
Got my sticker! I think it says that it'll be built by March 12 but my delivery date is March 23.

The build date should be firm but the delivery date may vary. My 2011 came by rail car to just outside of Toronto. Then by transport to the dealership East of Ottawa.

hey! I ordered my magnetic platinum on Feb 13th and the build date on it is march 15th, then depending on where you live, however long after that to get to your dealership. Just wanted to give you a heads up on the build timeline right now. I'm hoping its here before april 4th so I can still get the 60 at 0% deal.

I am new to the site. I ordered my Explorer XLT on January 29th and my dealer told me it was to be built week of March 7th......which is this week. I can't find any details about status of build and delivery. Any suggestions, not sure if it is because my order is for Canada.

Welcome to the Forum.:wavey:
Your dealer/salesperson should be able to obtain any info you need. The fact that the order is for Canada should have no bearing on this. You can try sending a PM to FordServiceCA, http://www.explorerforum.com/forums/private.php?do=newpm&u=233337 to see if they can help.

Just came in, picked up today after 8.5 weeks and I must say what a RIDE!! This Sport ROCKS!!!!! Never in my wildest dreams would think the performance of the Twin puppies could deliver. All you doubters out there are either not authentic or just being blind to the obvious...this Sport is not only exciting to drive, it exudes confidence...yes there are always cons to this very mid priced vehicle however, I would dare anyone to compare the power, torque, brakes, steering and driver's experience with anything else out there. I've tested the Competition, Including the powerful V8's and again you must be totally anti FORD NOT to appreciate this vehicle.

I only wish the so called soccer moms had the same appreciation as I do. EcoBoost is here and I Love It!!

Usually they will install any aftermarket accessories, remove packaging material, final inspection, give it a cleaning to go over it and see if there is anything not correct, dings etc. and fill it up with gas. Usually can be done in a day, but that also depends a little on tech availability.
