  1. I talked to our parts department this morning and learned that many of the wheel locks are specific to certain models, wheels, etc. Just seems strange that a simple item like wheel locks, available as a factory order option, are difficult to get for a model that's in production. But then again, we're talking about Ford/Lincoln!
  2. Makes no sense at all! The wheel locks would be the same as for the Ford Escape and every Escape I order includes the wheel lock option. If the vehicle was ordered with the locks they would be shipped separately for installation at the dealership. Otherwise they are available for order from the dealership's parts department.

    Actual build time experience?

    Attached is the scheduling information for vehicles that will be scheduled on Thursday, November 15th. I post this information each week for all Ford and Lincoln vehicles in the Production Week Scheduling Timetable thread in the Production and Sales forum. The average transit time is 14 days once a vehicle has been released for shipment but may vary depending on the rail carrier, car carrier firm hauling vehicles to the dealership, etc.
  8. Ford may really just be buying themselves time with FRAP and future Mustang production until they see what their future production needs are with utilization at other plants, etc. As discussed many times, FRAP has serious production constraints and would require a major overhaul in order to produce many of the vehicles the market is demanding and planned for the future. And a decision to finally overhaul FRAP would likely require closing the plant for an extended time, forcing them to move Mustang to another facility. Should Ford move Mustang production it would have to be to another U.S. plant to avoid the outrage and bad press that would ensue otherwise. Just a few thoughts.

    2020 Escape Hybrid release from plant

    Your Dealer is being straight with you. The Ford Vehicle Locator shows all Escape Hybrid vehicles at the plant with none released.
  11. We were told first year production expected to be 50K units with half going to the 10 BEV states. I think the 50K may be Ford's conservative plan for the first year until they see the market reaction and they actually start production, etc.
  12. Follow-up to akirby's reply. Incentives are based on your home zip code or where the vehicle will be registered. It doesn't matter what dealership the vehicle is located at.
  13. I talked to our Ford Zone Manager earlier today and as of now the last wholesale allocation meetings for the 2020MY Fusion will be in March 2020 with production to balance out in June or July. The timing of the 2020 Fusion balance out will be adjusted as necessary to allow enough time to retool the plant for the Bronco Sport production.
  14. Ford hasn't released any of the 2020MY balance out schedules yet. I expect they'll start releasing that information in the FDNB (Fleet Distribution News Bulletin) after New Year's. I have a meeting with out Ford Zone Manager tomorrow morning and will ask him if he knows anything yet about when Fusion production will balance out.
