    Perfect I was looking for this info. So if production starts 11/26 when can we expect them to land at dealers? And where will the Rangers be built?

    So far Ford hasn't said anything about the North American spec ranger raptor...but I would assume if/when it arrives it would be built there as well. You can check out the ranger raptor section of Ranger5g for the latest info on the ranger raptor

    Thanks. Why will it take 3 months after production starts for the first ones to arrive at dealers? Aren't these built in like a day?

    I would assume so and I'm not sure what the 3 month wait is for.

    The wait is because it's a new model and they build stock units first. Quality control is done with adjustments being made on the line until they are happy with everything. Then the QC hold is lifted and you will start seeing them hit the lots.
    This is by no means exactly how it happens, I'm just speaking in generalities.

    The key here is OKTB (Ok to buy), which is 5 days production without any errors. This could take 4 to 6 weeks to achieve. At least that is how I understand it. I would not expect my truck before March.

    Post #104 on link below gives a lot of info on what to expect on your order.

    When your truck is scheduled for production and you have received a Vin# you can use this ford site to track your truck from production to delivery.

    Today Ford auto workers return to the Wayne Michigan plant to test drive the Ranger that they will be building. Workers in body, stamping and paint returned earlier this month.

    And on Monday October 29th 2018 final assembly workers will return to the factory.

    Direct quote from the article: “The first 2019 Rangers available to the public should roll off the line in a week or so.“

    As noted in an earlier post, I changed my order Tuesday from XLT CrewCab 4x4 to a Lariat CrewCab 4x4 with essentially the same equipment and a price increase right at $3000. I am dealing directly with the president of the dealership, so he is pretty knowledgeable. We discussed when customer production might actually start and today I got a call from him. He had done some checking and basically said the same as kep about the Okay To Buy not being achieved until January. So not likely to see customer orders until late January at earliest, and probably later than that.

    Ford is on a payed break that week. But I would assume then that your dealer ordered it as a stock unit to get it to you faster.

    Yep. That date doesn't make sense. Is it printed on the order printout that they get on the Ford computer? If for some reason, that is your actual production date and they are working through the holiday to fulfill orders, I'd request a delay in the build. The day before Christmas builds might be a bit more problematic than the other non-holiday build dates. :shock: How would you like working the Christmas Eve shift? :whew:

    I just called the dealer with your question. The printed date is a "build week" of 12/24, not a "build date". Maybe it'll be right after Christmas when everybody is refreshed and ready to build a high-quality piece of art!

    Correct. It is a stock order and not a retail order... which means I can't get the $750 rebate :(

    PS. No way that I'm requesting a delay. Too excited!!! :handsinair:
