    2023 Super Duty Orders & Discussion

    The last time I looked at Ford's New York Region directory just a few months ago, the Zone Manager positions still existed. The Zone Managers are really the same as what you're also referring to as Regional Reps but there are higher level managers that have "Regional" as part of their title. Those "Regional" managers supervise the Zone Managers, while others work in other sales, marketing and other disciplines. The Zone Managers are the primary contact between the dealerships and the regional office. It's not often that Dealers have contact with other or upper-level regional managers. There is no new system that's replaced the use of priority codes 01 and 02 which are assigned by Dearborn and/or Regional Schedulers. The Zone Managers can request retail orders being reprioritized but don't have final approval authority.
  3. Electric Chevrolet Blazer Reservations Are Sold Out Already https://www.foxbusiness.com/lifestyle/electric-chevrolet-blazer-reservations-sold-out Deliveries of the all-electric midsize model revealed in July are not expected to begin until next summer, but the first batch is already spoken for. A Chevrolet spokeswoman told FOX Business that the automaker has "fulfilled our reservation target" and is no longer accepting new reservations. The first Blazer EVs scheduled to ship are listed at $47,595 and $51,995. An entry-level $44,995 model will be added in late 2024.
  4. Ford Explorer & Lincoln Aviator EV's Will Be Oakville's Only Vehicles https://fordauthority.com/2022/11/ford-explorer-lincoln-aviator-evs-will-be-oakvilles-only-vehicles/ Currently, the Oakville Assembly plant in Canada produces the Ford Edge and Lincoln Nautilus for North America, but that facility will stop building both the mainstream crossover and its luxury counterpart after the 2023 model year. As Ford Authority reported in 2020, the Oakville plant was slated to replace those models with five new EVs in 2025 following a complete retooling in 2024 – including all-electric versions of the Ford Explorer and Lincoln Aviator crossovers. In fact, an “Explorer-like” EV is slated to become the automaker’s next all-electric model, while Lincoln plans on rolling out four new second-generation EVs by 2026. However, it seems as if The Blue Ovals’ plans have changed somewhat in the past two years, and now the Ford Explorer and Lincoln Aviator EVs will be the only two models built at Oakville, according to Automotive News Canada.
  5. It makes it easier if orders that can't be scheduled until Job #2 are set at priority code 99. Retail orders subject to Job #2 scheduling restrictions and submitted at 10-19 priority codes won't get scheduled until then anyway, but using the 99 priority code makes those orders easier to manage.
