Hello folks. I got the email saying my expo stealth is built and going to be shipped soon. Question, I looked at my sticker that I can finally see and it has a cpl credits. One for 2r climate control l/ht seat delete and one for hands free lift gate removal. Is this because it is missing the chips for these things to be functional? Will the dealer install these things at a future date? Thanks for any input. View attachment 73932
If you didn't figure it out yet, you WILL have rear A/C functionality from the main control unit. The chip missing will just not allow the A/C to be controlled from the rear seats until the chip is retrofitted. I've read you will likely NOT get the automatic rear entry, which many seem ok with. If you don't know, this feature is where you kick your foot behind the car and, if its unlocked and/or you have your key fob in your pocket, will open the back door without hands. Some dislike this feature for towing. My wife's vans have had this feature forever and we rarely, if ever, use it. It's not flawless and generally easier to open in with your hand or the key fob prior to approaching it if you want it hands free.

I ordered a limited max in February. Got an order confirmation but never a build date. Dealer says he sees priority codes on my order - which doesn’t seem like it means anything. Losing hope. Anyone else in a similar situation?

What trim code of limited did you order? Specific order date? Many of us that ordered last week of January / first week of February finally got our build dates for first week of august so you are probably coming up next. BOF shows no scheduling this week so you probably won’t hear anything for a bit still. Production was extended to November for 2022MY, I’d be optimistic you would hear something soon for a late august build.

I ordered a Platinum in March. I got a confirmation of the order, but nothing else...VIN...build date. I've been very picky on the feature removals. I DON'T want to go without Park Assist 2.0, Rear Climate/Radio Controls, third row recline, signature/daytime running lighting, and cross traffic alerts. My dealer hasn't removed the things that Ford wants to remove, in order to schedule and build. I only OKAY'd the Multi-contour seat and stop/start removal. I want everything else. After all, it is a Platinum.

I ordered on 1/25. Limited max stealth. No build date for myself either.... I called Ford last week and they were no help. They just said it’s a “high demand vehicle” and that they “apologize for the wait time“.

how is that possible? I ordered mine 6 months before you did, and you will get yours before me? WTF is wrong with FORD?
Your dealer could have fought for you to have a higher priority in the system. After about a month, my dealer convinced Ford to move my 2/15 order to priority 02. I'm currently in production.

Priority codes only apply to the dealer’s own orders.
A priority 2 or 9 or 19, means nothing when comparing across all dealers and orders.
