Ford Vehicle Ordering & Scheduling Process

The USOB (Unscheduled Order Bank) for the 2021MY Transit Connect had already closed prior to you placing your order. The USOB for the 2022MY Transit Connect opened on 01/25/2021 and scheduling started on 02/11/2021.

 

Unlike most other vehicles, Transit Connect orders cannot be changed once they're scheduled. However, since your order is unscheduled, you might consider deleting the Floor Mats and Remote Start System options. At the same time, your Dealer should change your order's priority code to 10 and also contact their Ford Zone Manager and/or the Regional Scheduler for assistance in getting the order scheduled. The regional office can also reprioritize the order at "01" which forces the Ford scheduling system to schedule the order ASAP. Dealers normally need allocation for scheduling but the regional office often can make exceptions for scheduling retail orders. There have been scheduling delays for the 2022 Transit Connect and it's still early so it's possible that your could get scheduled in the next few weeks. 

 

Hope this helps.

Thank you sooo much for clarifying. We knew going into this was going to be a long wait. I emailed him this morning to see if he could reprioritize to anything lower than 19 and he almost immediately replied saying they are out of allocations (guessing they are too small) but would reach out to their zone manager for assistance; he said being it is the only Transit Connect "Titanium" on order in all the southeast, it may happen. He would get back soon.

 

As for dropping the floor mats and remote start, the mats are needed to help with inside trafic for the business, and living in Florida, Auto Start is almost a NECESSITY so the A/C can start as we walk to the vehicle :) Yes, us being lazy and needy, but something we both feel is necessary for the climate/area we live in.

 

Again, I cannot thank you enough for replying and helping me(us) to understand. It's nice to know there is a place to go and air grievances, problems, or thoughts :)

My order status is still “In Production”, with a scheduled day of 3/9 per my dealer.  However, I just noticed my estimated delivery date has moved out a week to 4/1.  Does this imply my build date has moved or something involving the shipping process?   

How long was your order between “in production” and “in processing?

My order was accepted on 1/29 and roughly 3 weeks later I received a build date of 3/9.   (The build date ended up being 3/15.)

 

Incidentally, the truck was delivered to my dealer last Friday, 3.26, and I discovered it on Sunday.   I let my salesman know on Monday that if he would walk out back, he'd find my truck and they could get started getting it ready.   I'll pick it up tomorrow afternoon.  Lesson learned, track closely and be your own advocate.

Really wish I found this forum before I placed my order in February for the 2021 King Ranch. 😂

Just checked the print out of the Preview Order... Priority Code 19.

 

I'm still searching but what does the price level indicate on the order preview?  Mine shows a price level of 130.

The Priority Code range for retail orders is 10-19 with 10 being the most desirable. The WBDO (Web Based Dealer Ordering) system defaults to a "19" Priority Code for retail orders requiring Dealers to manually change it. As such, talk to your Dealer about changing your Priority Code. 

 

The Price Level code is generated automatically to reflect the price level in effect when the order was submitted to the USOB (Unscheduled Order Bank). Retail orders are "price protected" to the prices in effect when the order was submitted to Ford. As such, your purchase price will not change should Ford increase the price prior to your vehicle being invoiced.
