    You have no idea whom I am, so your opinion of me getting "snowed" is based upon what... Ford dealers "snowing" their uniformed customers? I do not attribute the supply problem to my salesman or others at the dealership I dealt with. They were more then willing to have me wait, but gave me, what I believe was their honest time estimation opinions. The Lariat was a retail purchase from a customer that got tired of waiting. It just arrived on the lot, and them willing to give me an above trade-in value (I researched myself) extra "we owe" add on's and zero pressure, and losing out in the past on in-stock convinced me to move forward. Bottom line, the vehicle was there, the price was fair, and had exactly everything I wanted, and the monthly payment came to exactly $80 bucks more a month (0% APR) for a 502A high Lariat over the 302A high package XLT which I will off pay off in three months anyway (either truck). I am FAR from easy to "snow" (lacking in intelligence). I based my choice on my personal experience over time, experience of others, and research. Hence my wishing to communicate with the OP, to see HIS ordering experience. Other's ordering experience's may be different then mine, but the FACT is all vehicle manufactures are suffering right now. Ford is doing their best, and I hope the supply problem(s) clear up soon. This dealership went out of their way to satisfy me, they did...and I got more then I could ask for. But, it does not change the fact that I personally have had my build dates continually pushed back for well over a year. Bad luck...perhaps. The way things are right now...more likely.

    Hi, as I was worried about my order got pushed back another month. The salesman told me he now believes 5-6 months "if I'm lucky." On the lot, just delivered, was a gorgeous silver 2021 Lariat 502A high package. It was a customer retail purchase ordered in mid 2020 that the buyer got tired of waiting for. About 12k more, but the dealer gave me MSRP (unlike a few charging more), Ford had 0% APR and $1000.00 rebate. That, along with a VERY decent trade-in value on my 2020, I decided to purchase it. The 14th gen truck is just sweet!! LMK how your purchase goes!

    Gorgeous!! I have the carbon grey, super crew, sports appearance with loaded 302A high package. You also sleep well my friend! 🙂 Talk to you soon on our progress. And again, absolutely gorgeous!

    With the earlier MY21 order, no, I had to contact my salesman. Although he's polite & professional, I hate to bug him every two-weeks as to the updated status that they can see, but I cannot. With the new MY22 order "it seems" it's running more smoothly, as so far, no phone calls that anything has been pushed back. "Torture" is a great word for waiting! I think from the very latest post I've read, Ford is proactively moving forward to get retail customers orders out. So, I'm holding on for tomorrow and please Lord hoping it goes into production! I was hoping we could keep in touch, to see if our orders have gone through and getting similar positive production/update information. I see the confusion on sounding so hardline on 11/29 is do or die for me. In a way, I guess it is, if I get pushed back again, and the "few more weeks" statement to a 'few more months" statement like you had originally been told by two separate dealers. So, yes, I'm all over the board I guess.

    The 11/29 is not a fixed "deadline" if I see some forward movement. You may not have read my reply post to the moderator, but I had actually ordered a MY21 early in the year. The build week kept getting pushed forward, now it's changed to MY22 with the 11/29 build week. So far...according to my salesman, "it appears "all systems are go" for tomorrow and that would be great! I just happened to run across your post, and your circumstances are pretty much spot on as mine, and was just curious as to what you were being told. As the in-stock truck is the same color with the 302A high package Sport, it is almost exactly what I want (it lacks the moveable back window, but does have the rear step ladder) it's a trade I can live with. Bottom line, I'm happy to wait IF there are no more hold ups. However, why wait, if the 99.9% exact model is in stock and ready to go 72.8 miles away. Not worth the waiting and risk of losing the in stock I'm thinking.

    Yes, pretty much the same exact info I'm getting on wait times. and the VIN and other info you provided. I have a great salesman that I trust, but he seems to get "updated" info/changes to status on a semi-regular basis and I do not not wish to bug him every week. As I only have until tomorrow to wait to see if it actually goes into production this time, I will have an interesting night's sleep. Your additional info is really appreciated! Either retail or in stock...I'm getting this truck!

    Your reply and confusion to my post is understandable. I left a few key details out for brevity that perhaps I should not have. It's my second order from MY21 that was pushed back until changed to MY22 on 10/29. So, for this "new" particular order I'm told it's scheduled for 11/29 (tomorrow). I know Ford is doing the best they can, and some things can't be controlled. I've been told in good faith the same thing in the past. I am excited, and hope it actually goes into production tomorrow. I was more curious to see the OP's response, and if his particular experience runs smoothly. I'm hoping the semi-conductor issue is getting cleared up, as it may well be I am not up-to-date. Of course, I am perfectly willing to to wait one more day, but when I see an almost exact in stock model on a lot ready to go, I of course get excited and don't want to lose the opportunity. Again, of course, I am perfectly willing to see what tomorrow brings, but if pushed back yet again, I'm strongly considering the in stock purchase. Complaining no, information yes...I want to get the OP's experience as time goes on to better gauge my decision making process.

    Hi, ordered mine 10/29 with a build date of 11/29. I have my VIN, and shows "order processing." My salesman claims there are no holdups in their system and Ford Tracking (for me) will start "working" on Monday 11/29. I shall see about that as this semi-conductor chip shortage is slowing things way down. If I'm "pushed back" on the production date, I see a 2021 with my almost same exact features (minus auto rear opening window) at a dealer 80 miles away. If so, I'm going to see what the in-stock dealer will do for me. As stated earlier, I'm a bit worried about the wait time. What is your production date?
