Those of you who got scheduling emails today what part of the country are you in? My dealer told me it is hard to go by what we hear in the forums because it depends on what region you are in for when things are scheduled. Someone posted a while back a document that showed expeditions would be scheduled that week. He checked and sent me a document showing different models were being scheduled and no Expeditions that week.
I am in Georgia.

I originally placed my order for a ‘21 on 8/27/21. Knowing more about the process now, I’m guessing the ‘21 order book was already closed? Anyway they rolled my order to a ‘22 which was placed on 10/27. Chip hold since 3/17. Just called marketing again and new ETA is 7/28. This is a miserable process.

agreed on the miserable process.
Ordered 11/1. Been sitting on “chip hold” since 3/17.
I get the commodity hold, I’m well informed on what’s going on, but ford **** the bed with this one.
They have tens of thousands of vehicles built and waiting. This kind of aging inventory is not good. I get a delay and not stopping the main line, but building up this much stock is not helping them.
Also, after 3-4 months, they should have a better triage system of relaying information to consumers. Even if that information is “we are waiting on these parts for this vehicle, there is no eta”. That info is all available, just making it accessible and transparent to dealers and consumers.
I’m still waiting on mine. But told my wife already, we might just flip it for a profit. In my area every dealer is tacking on 5-10k on top of new MSRP, even if I flip it for 10k more than I negotiated it would be a savings for the buyer compared to buying new from dealer.

The dealer doesn’t want to cancel the order bc they are all desperate for dealer stock units. If you didn’t put money down and didn’t sign anything your order wasn’t officially a retail customer order, it was a dealer stock unit anyway.
Interesting... So even though I have paperwork with my name and order number on it, and have received emails from Ford for order confirmation and scheduling, it's a dealer stock order? Wow, amazing what these guys will do these days.

Can you make a profit due to the fact your paid Sales Tax? I thought the same but Sales Tax in AZ is almost 10%.

All in with sales tax, I would make about 3-5k profit. Not bad for little effort.
Not sure if I’m going that route only bc there is still the issue of placing another order for a 2023. No guarantee they will be here even within 2023, and price increases basically negate my profits.

What’s the chance the new ETA of August for many of us is completely a bogus guess? I feel like they have no clue when these 99% finished units will be ready to ship.

Does anyone have knowledge of the chip or wiper motor situation?

-2/28/22 Ordered
-3/25/22 Scheduled for Production week 5/16/22
-4/7/22 Production date changed to week 6/6/22
-4/14/22 Production changed back to week 5/16/22
-4/22/22 Production changed to week 5/23/22
-4/25/22 Production changed to week 6/27/22
Update:
5/20/22 Production changed to week 7/18/22

Now I’m getting upset like everyone else. Very tempted to pony up an extra $6k and get a green one with 2nd row Captains that’s on its way to another dealer nearby. If I knew it wouldn’t get pushed back again, I’d stick with my order, but who knows how many more times it’ll be delayed?
This sucks!

Well, the original delivery date of 5/17-5/20 has passed and my car is still sitting at the rail yard in Mesquite, TX, just a few hours away. As of right now, the dealer told me that their Ford rep isn’t letting them go pick up the cars from the rail yard, but at the sister GM dealer next door, their rep is letting the GM dealer go pick cars up from the same rail yard. I don’t understand why Ford won’t let the dealer go pick them up from the rail yard?!

Seems odd. Usually that would be up to the dealer.
