Well, this explains the ridiculous prices on the 2019's still left. I was told by a dealer that had I bought the truck I am looking at last month it would have been $5K cheaper. So now I am in between a rock and a hard place, go for the 2019 or for a few K more get a 2020. Jeez...just shoot me now.
If the dealers have a 2019 in stock with what you want, I say go for it...
Like your screen name bud, no wonder you want a Ranger, being that Chevy does no longer produces that POS they called the Citation!

I guess I should update things, I went for the '19 Ranger, a week ago. It had everything I wanted (XLT, FX4, Sport, CarPlay) and a lot I hadn't planned on but am extremely pleased with: Magnetic Exterior/Medium Stone Interior and EQUIPMENT GROUP 302A.

I've had the most fun with the 'Lane Keeping System'--Holy Self-Driving Car, Batman! I am still finding stuff.

In spite of all the negative press, this thing drives like an SUV on the highway, a Hummer off-road and tows like an 18-wheeler :rockon:

My build week is the week of 2/23 but the site shows as In Production now. My windows sticker link shows check back later though so i'm guessing it may be another week or so until I can see that.

I think it changes to "In Production" when they sent it to the plant. It isn't really in production, but it is close. Once you have the window sticker it will be REALLY close and you will know the actual day it will be built.

Those are all positive developments I can get behind. Any movement is good :)
Considering i'm maybe 2 hours from the factory i'm expecting my dealer to have it by the end of the first week of March, second week at worst.

I’m seeing the exact same thing for my XLT. Getting closer. :clap:

Today my XLT is back to order processing. Must have been false labor.
It may change a few times. Once you are able to see your window sticker you will know exactly when it will be built.

Tonight my window sticker showed up with a blend number of 320200225. Looks like February 25th is the build date! :)

I'm not completely sure about this, but the 4 digit number is a "sequence number" - I always assumed that is the order they go down the line. Yours is 0450....

and mine is 0011 which puts Mike's a little farther behind mine.

Being that your truck's assembly date is Feb. 25 and barring any manufacturing glitches or transportation issues, I see no reason why your Lariat should not be at your dealer by March 6.
Sure beats the 1 1/2 months I had to wait, but then, my 2020 had to travel almost 5K miles to get to my dealer. But since I only paid $1195 for shipping (as you will be, as well) it sure was a bargain transportation wise.
Getting close bro, excited for you...
