See #24, screen shot of order, Received the Vin about the second week of November, was given the build date at that time by the dealer.
Thanks. That points to the second question I was wondering about: Are people able to check the order status before receiving a VIN? If so, how?
Ie is the "order available" status visible before VIN is assigned? Or only available in hindsight after VIN is assigned?

I had to have the vin number first, before I could track anything. I was actually very surprised how fast the dealer was able to get me the vin. After that it is just waiting, and waiting, and more waiting.

As it happens I will be out of town when the truck finally arrives, I should be able to pick it up the Monday of the following week.

The VIN should be available within a couple weeks (no more than a month) after the order is placed. Once you have the VIN you can use the order tracker to get some more info, but the dealer has a TON more info than you can get on the order tracker. They just have to want to go get it for you.

Here is the breakdown when I ordered it (but it was near the beginning of production):
Ordered at Dealer 12/22/2018
Accepted at Ford 12/26/2018
VIN Assigned 1/18/2019
Window Sticker Available 3/8/2019
Blend Date 3/16/2019
Production Complete 3/19/2019
Shipped by truck from plant to Rail Yard in Woodhaven, MI 3/23/2019
Shipped via train from Woodhaven, MI 3/29/2019
Arrived in Portland Railyard 4/9/2019
Delivered via truck to Dealer 4/12/2019
Picked up at Dealer 4/14/2019

Ah crap where did the info come from? I have one on order.
Was told through my MAS Representative. Direct message below:

"Please be advised that Ford informed us of a stop build on Tremor package, 91T until mid February. Please advise if customer would like to remove the package to continue with production or wait the stop build out."


My guess is supplier "covid" related issues. Ordered my tremor build back in October.

I ordered (after $100 reservation in July) Wifey's Bronco Sport Badlands back in August -- received another (2nd) production delay to begin "...no earlier than the week of February 15th..."

Less than 2 weeks earlier, the Bronco Sport was delayed for production "...no earlier than January 25th but more realistically February 2nd..."

Probably One of One if it's a Lariat 501A pkg

~11 weeks, not too shabby!
My unicorn: When my kids were in high school, I spec'ed a 1999 Mercury Cougar as a third car/midlife crisis toy- Base with no cruise control and a sunroof.
Back when I was in high school, a buddy's dad ordered a new Chevy Impala wagon: Blackwall tires (unheard of in those days) and radio delete.

Glad to hear they are shipping.

Was worried about delays, sharing a plant with Bronco, Covid, all that mess.

Hope to see them soon!

Thanks, assumed that was it. Mid year works for me but hopefully earlier.
