I think I did ask a question but let me repeat it, my retail order of a F150 has been shown as "in production" since 3/18. Has an ETA of 4/3, then 4/6, then an NA as ETA and since 5/1 is showing 4/15 for an ETA. Makes no sense at all. If anybody might know why any info is appreciated. If you don't have an answer don't tell me to go bitch somewhere else, just don't answer. Not looking for people being assholes with me, just looking for some simple answers as Ford is showing they really don't have any answers so far including my dealer and their Ford rep. Simple, right ??
Spoke with my dealer a number of times and they don't have answers. Seems Dearborn is turning into the black hole of the F150 world. Just looking to see what folks around this forum might be able to come up with as possible answers
Just asked a question here buddy, not bitching about nothing. What to do if a retail order has been showing "in production" since 3/16 with an ETA of 4/15 and nothing is happening. Do you have an answer or not, if you don't leave the responses to people with a possible answer as you aint helping any.
I think both of those are better, but neither go far enough. They need to switch back to the more traditional look of the headlights being next to the grille and not above it. This also squares off the front end a bit and makes it look less like a car. The evos grille is very similar in shape, but in my opinion it looks 10x better.
Nobody plans for a year plus pandemic leading to microchip, worker and supplier shortages (which Ford was managing fairly well) followed by a microchip supplier fire. Some businesses are more complicated than others.
You can see the hit that was coming for Escape, more standard /compulsory equipment and higher prices up to 2017 caused a nosing over of sales as the C1 Escape aged, then Hackett thought that it was a good idea to increase profit by decontenting. All at a time when GM was a spooling up the Mexican built compact Equinox and Toyota committed two plants to RAV4. Ford basically set Escape up to fail against new and fresh competition.
One of the hallmarks of twenty-teen Ford’s was the expansive rolling out of copilot 360 under Fields, it’s ironic that the very thing that gave Ford Edge over the competition was then seen as dragging down profit, much the same way that Ford whined about Fusion build flexibility (33,000 possible ways).
Instead of embracing diversity and leading edge technology, Hackett saw most of it as unnecessary, save for his pet projects that amounted to little more than red ink.
Ford was having issues with the Escape in the pervious generation-the 2019MY was decontented to help make it more profitable.
the Escape has suffered from pricing issues since 2013 and content creep since then. My Wife’s 2017 Escape SE has more features then my parents old 2013 Titanium had on it and was $5k cheaper.
