Cory and Crystal have been FANTASTIC giving me updates on my order....but what has been everyone's actual experience with delivery times....how long after production to dealer? I ordered 4/5, got VIN on 5/22 with a blend date of 5/31. Was advised 5/28 that it was in production and today was told it has rolled off the line and is getting ready to start moving to the dealer! Original delivery date was 6/14 and I'm wondering if is going to make that date....I'm hoping for a couple days earlier as I'd love to drive it to my family reunion on the 15th! I live in central Ohio...so really not TOO far from Chicago...right?? LOL

I also ordered on 4/5. The build date was 5/24. My original ETA was 6/19. Called FORD CS a few days later and they gave me an ETA of 6/6. On Fri. i spoke to the dealer who said it should be delivered 6/5. Today, he called and said it was already on the truck from Buffalo to PA and may be here tomorrow.

One can only hope !

jfp202 & Ryan327,

Congrats! You’ll be able to post pics soon. :thumbsup:

That’s what my tracker shows, JanB. The ETA is 6/10/2013, but that’s still subject to change.

I recently found one that was on its way to the OK City area... the only one I could find with the options I want. Build date is 5/8/13... Still have not received it yet. Dealer says Ford has all their vehicles on Lock Down at the OK City rail yard. Was told today that they are starting to unload, but having to check through 1200 vehicles for any damage... fingers are crossed they can deliver early next week.
