Production Week Scheduling Info for the week of 11/11/2019.
It doesn't look like they aren't starting production of the 2020's until...early 2020?

Would we expect the 2020 Ford Ranger configurator to be released at the end of this week? I want to build one!
Your guess is as good as mine. They may be waiting until retail orders are being scheduled before they put it up live. Although you can order one - there are a few people who have pending orders - but maybe those are all dealer stock orders.

I see where your vehicle profile lists a "blend" date, is this the point where all the components of the build come together and final assembly commences? Or can and does assembly be delayed by days or even weeks?
A few of us have been given "scheduled to build" dates, it seems as though there are other dates involved, such as the "blend" date.
Also, is it safe to assume when they list "clean-up" dates that they are taking care of "straggler" builds, so to speak?
Pity that Michigan Assembly does not offer factory tours (at least Ford's website doesn't show any), I'd hop on a plane in a heartbeat.
So far, my truck seems to be scheduled to be first built of all the members on the speadsheet, but I am certain that others will take delivery well before I do, because of my location.
Once again, not getting my hopes up here artificially, God knows I've waited long enough!

I'm no expert (just what I learned after ordering mine), but the blend date is the date your truck actually comes together and gets assembled.

I'm not sure what the cleanup dates are when they do the scheduling, but once your VIN has been scheduled it really doesn't matter. Once you've been scheduled for a week, I believe you typically will fall sometime into that week. When the build week gets closer you will get a specific build date (the blend date). That is the actual date your truck will be assembled.

The waiting is the hardest part....

Yes some members are scheduled right before Thanksgiving, so very soon!
Indeed, MY 2020 production (at least my truck) should be humming along that Thanksgiving week, sure hope I don't get a "turkey".

Looks as though Ford is taking styling cues from the Ridgeline, wondering if it's a totally different body placed on the existing models frame?
Also wondering if it's body will be made from aluminum?
Isn't the 2021 a 6G, a new frame/platform?
