    2022 Super Duty Orders & Discussion

    Here’s a link to an article that also explains this relationship. https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.carprousa.com/blog/understanding-car-dealers-vs.-automakers%3Fhs_amp%3Dtrue

    Somewhere in this thread are some of the criteria that goes into production scheduling. I know it doesn’t ease the pain any.

    From FMC’s CEO concerning chips: “The other thing we must do is secure contracts with our supplier or suppliers, where possible, in commodities we know will be constrained like semiconductors,” Farley said. “In the case of semiconductors, that will require both mature node semiconductors or feature-rich semiconductors like window regulators, as well as the advanced nodes that run our connectivity electronic components, as well as infotainment. These will be very important, and you’ve seen announcements like GlobalFoundries, there’ll be more of those, and we’ll have to do it on the raw material and the battery side as well.” The Ford CEO is referring to a strategic alliance the automaker formed with GlobalFoundries Inc. – a global leader in semiconductor manufacturing – last November, which aims to boost chip supplies by advancing semiconductor technology development and manufacturing in the U.S. In addition, Ford of Europe recently joined two new supply chain initiatives while the automaker is also considering getting into vertical integration in regards to the raw materials used in the construction of EV batteries.

    2022 Super Duty Orders & Discussion

    This is from a Facebook page dealing with this topic. Supposedly somebody from Ford contacted this guy to ask if he was still interested in his truck. If not, they would (FMC) cancel the order and bump up another order and not let the dealer take delivery of the truck. Has anybody else seen this. I'm more than a little bit skeptical that it was from FMC. Here's the FB post: "Well My production date got pushed . But this morning I get a call from Ford asking if I still want my order . I said yes 110% . The lady goes we’re calling to weed out anyone that doesn’t want there order. So hopefully you get your truck sooner . Crossing my fingers."

    Well, for the money you’re planning on spending I don’t blame you for not wanting the truck if it doesn’t have everything you ordered. That being said, the dealer will probably still get possession of the truck and it will be sold within days. I don’t see the supply chain issues being solved in the near future as far a commodity restraints go. As far as the scheduling procedure, on the surface I don’t understand it outside of the fast that they will schedule in a manner that keeps their costs the lowest. I really feel for the folks that are at or near a year since ordering. I just ordered in March, so I’m not far enough along in the process to get upset. It’s all out of my control barring declining delivery when it does arrive. It doesn’t appear I can get some options I like on a GMC, so it’s a wash. And I doubt the day will come when I buy a Ram.

    Chances are your dealer didn’t submit your information to FMC with your order. Mine didn’t either, but there are times when that seems to be a blessing when I see people receiving multiple delay emails. I did call Ford Marketing and they confirmed my order. The number is somewhere in this thread. Start looking around page 330 and keep going.

    Scam! This is from a Facebook page covering this SD production.

    This was on page 374: I thought this was interesting, I was just messing around on Fords build site, and they now allow you to select a bunch of options, unlike before for the last month or so. But I was putting my platinum build together and noticed the "multi-contour delete" option. Is this a potential item that could be holding up the build times for platinums/KR/Limiteds? If so, I will gladly remove that to get mine built quicker. I assume this is just the massaging part that is deleted? Not the actual seat cushions and leather used in those trims? Maybe someone will chime in and give me some more detail before I call my dealer and ask for the delete option

    I did see another post that this was flagged on the Super Duty Build Your Own site. It was back a couple of pages.

    Thanks for the information. Hopefully when I'm ready to sign on the line, they have a good offer. I've bought one through FMC and leased three. I liked it because it was such a painless and seamless process. I do have concerns with the outlook trending toward higher interest rates in the near future. Luckily I should be in a good position for a sizeable down payment to help ease the monthly pain.

    While I'm not that far along in the process, my salesman told me he could get me better rates than going through Ford Motor Credit. They've been pretty competitive in the past, so I was pretty surprised as we've used FMC in the past. I don't expect to have to worry about it until the September-November timeframe as I ordered in early March.

    I asked the same question just a bit above you. I have the same issue.

    I did not get a confirmation email from the company which sort of led me to this question. I don’t think my dealer is interested in providing my information to Ford as I have asked twice about it through email and all I get is crickets. If there isn’t an alternative, I’ll have to make a visit to the dealership.

    Is there a method of getting information to Ford to receive updates or does that have to go through the dealer? My dealer evidently didn't send my information with my order. Cyberdman has confirmed that my order made it through to Ford. I know I have a long wait as my order was on 3/7/22.

    Now I’m beyond envy and neck deep in jealousy! LOL That looks pretty close to my build except I got the chrome package and 8’ box. Beautiful vehicle. We’re into the reds, too. Wifey is on her 3 red explorer (two Ruby reds and her current Rapid red Platinum). I went with it because while I liked most of the colors, nobody had anything in stock to see what they actually looked like. Since I knew this one, that’s what I ordered. It’ll look great in the sunshine.
