Production Week Scheduling Information

Recommended Posts

Don't know where to ask this question.

Ordered an F350 on 7/6/20, got the VIN the following week. Based on the posts above, it looked like it was scheduled for the week of 8/31. Followed it on alumizilla.com as it went to Scheduled to Week and then Scheduled to Day. But on Friday 9/4 it changed to In Order Processing and has been that way ever since. Any clue what happened?

First advice is always to contact your Dealer as they have 24/7 access to vehicle status updates. It's unusual for scheduled units to change scheduling status so late in the process but there may have been a commodity or other issue. Your Dealer will have access to that information or be able to contact their Zone Manager or Regional Scheduler for assistance. I do not recommend relying on third party sites for status information.

No new information available. A national search via Ford's Vehicle Locator shows a total of 26 Escape PHEV's with an "In Plant" status and none in stock.
