    2022 F-Series Super Duty Production Information

    Annual 1-2 week vacation shut down. Where did you hear that the plant was going to be down for all of May?

    Correct. I was still thinking about what was said about getting the vehicle in May.

    Production Week Scheduling Information

    A vehicle can show "In Order Processing" for multiple status levels. The Ford online tracking site provides limited information and is not accurate or up-to-date. Your Dealer can access the Vehicle Visibility system for the latest status.

    Absolutely not! The JOB #1 Date is June 1st.

    2022 F-Series Super Duty Production Information

    Job #1 Date is 06/01/2021 for the 2022MY Super Duty and the plant is down the weeks of 6/21 & 6/28. As such, you're looking at late July at best and more likely August if it's ordered as a stock unit and depending on when the "OK to Buy" status is achieved and vehicles are released for shipping. Retail orders usually don't start scheduling until after the "OK to Buy" status is achieved meaning an even later ETA at the dealership. This Sales Manager either doesn't know what he's talking about or he's just flat out lying to you in order to get your money!

    Just out of curiosity... what market are you in, how large is the dealership and who did you talk to a sales representative or sales manager?

    Great... another Dealer that doesn't know what they're talking about! The USOB (Unscheduled Order Bank) opens at the same time the 2022MY Super Duty Order Guide is released and orders can be placed at that time.

    The 2022 Duper Duty Order Guide will be available on or about 03/15/2021 when the USOB (Unscheduled Order Bank) opens. As soon as it's released I'll upload it to the Dealer Order Guides section (Top Menu). The direct link is https://blueovalforums.com/forums/index.php?/files/category/8-f-series-super-duty/

    Explorer King Ranch

    A lower two-tone paint treatment would have been a nice touch though and helped differentiate the King Ranch model... similar to the old Eddie Bauer model.

    Production Week Scheduling Information

    If you placed your order on 01/15/2021 (Friday) it would have been eligible for scheduling the week of January 18th as long as the dealership submitted the order to the USOB (Unscheduled Order Bank) as a Retail Order with a 10-19 Priority Code, did not include controlled commodities and your dealership had available scheduling allocation. Vehicle scheduling is done on Thursday's and sometimes carried over to Friday's due to technical issues. Is your vehicle scheduled and/or have you talked to your dealership? Your dealership has 24/7 access to Ford's Vehicle Visibility system that provides information on all order, scheduling, production and transportation matters. Sales representatives are not always reliable sources for information on retail factory orders so I'd recommend talking directly to the Sales Manager or the manager responsible for managing the dealership's order bank.
