FINALLY...Ford tracking and ordertrack.app both show my Expy in Production...Last date I had was w/o 13-Jun...
Sorry, do not get too excited, mine went into Production March 25th, build was finished May 29th, still waiting on shipping.
Your vehicle has been built and we are arranging shipment to your dealer. This step could take a few days to a week.

Agreed...but at least there is movement now.

Living a few miles down the road, and knowing people who work on the assembly floor, or in their local corporate offices at BMW, I can tell you that they too have major issues with their supply chain. For them, it boils down to a specific line or model, and spirals from there. Countless holding fields of cars exist with vehicles awaiting parts/chips. Countless rail cars offsite, empty, countless over the road trucks/trailers parked getting maintenance done now, while they await vehicles to be released for shipment. They also pick and choose what they build based on what they have parts/chips for, and ship out those that they can.

What you don't hear, is the amount of complaints that you do here, especially of on a thread like this.

Yes, I'm sure BMW has their own major struggles with parts. I was mainly reporting the observation made to me by my dealer/broker that the *shipping and delivery* of the cars is uniquely poor with Ford right now, and doesn't really seem to be an industry-wide problem (like the chip and other part shortages are).

I am more than a month since my truck was "built" and released for shipment. It still hasn't actually left the plant, though as of early this week it has been assigned to a specific railcar — though that railcar hasn't moved from the plant. Progress, but almost ridiculously slow progress.

Just got the email this morning that my XLT has been built. 06/06 was the production date with ETA of 06/21-06/27 for delivery. Shipping via convoy to Michigan FWIW but not holding my breath.

Local BMW dealer (9.7 miles from the assembly plant) has two cars on the showroom, and one parked out front. The rest of what is there is used, cross manufacturer fill in...Go figure.

Curious how far south you are in MI. Most of the vehicles I've seen posted heading up this way are coming via rail, including mine.
