How long are Edge factory orders currently taking?

Recommended Posts

Thanks Pioneer! In this type of situation what can the dealer do? An help would be appreciated?

Thanks! I contacted Ford Customer Care, they were surprised as well with the vehicle status, so they escalated the investigation to a regional manager. Should have a reply back in 1 or 2 days. So we will see what they come up with.

 

Also found out that vehicles (with same equipment) that were built before and after have shipped.

Hey Pioneer! Would you mind tracking this one for me again. I'm hoping that the Ford Regional Manager was able to get it moving.

I just placed an order and it hasn't been scheduled yet. I'm really hoping to get it by February for my wife's birthday.

It was built on November 4th and hasn't shipped. ETA range was up today. I'd contact your dealer and see if they can get ahold of the zone manager to see what the problem is.

I'm planning on buying a new 2016 Edge and wondered if I should worry about long wait time if I order in December?

It seems a new year model usually takes 6 to 8 weeks or longer.

Could someone enlighten my thoughts about the time frame I should prepare for.

Thank you

If you order now, I would expect delivery sometime in February. Could be March if there are a lot of inspections and/or quality holds.

Thank you akirby for your in formation about build time.
Now I have to wonder if I should wait until they build a few thousand before I buy.
That way I don't get an early one that may have issues.

Thanks

I don't think the fact that it's a new model is an issue because 98% of it is the same as the 2015. My issue is that they're still having problems with the 2015 builds so I'm going to wait another couple of months to give them time to work all that out.

That's my thinking as well.

I am not sure that my experience is typical but for those who have ordered an Edge, or are considering it, this is the time line for my order of a 2015 Edge SEL, 3.5, AWD, Ruby Red, roof rails, and Trailer Package.

 

Date Event and Source

8/28/2015 Car ordered

9/18 VIN received, from dealer

10/23 ETA 11/26, from Ford Customer Support

10/24 ETA 11/23, from dealer

10/28 Window sticker, from ResearchManiacs

11/6 Car built, from ETIS

11/14 ETA 11/30, from dealer

11/17 Car shipped, from Pioneer (thanks again)

11/17 ETA 12/5-12/11, from Pioneer

11/28 ETA 12/6 from dealer

12/4 Car delivered

 

Order to delivery: 98 days. The ETA seems to be a floating target, impacted no doubt by the 11 days between build and ship dates.

 

Ford may not have been in a rush to deliver but the car is very nice.

Do you think it stayed at the factory due to a factory hold? I thought they normally shipped out the day after they were build if there were no holds.

Our dealership is seeing delays in Edge shipments with produced vehicles siting at the plant for 3-4 weeks, released for shipment and still not leaving the plant.
